October 2014 Club Card - Kind Koala

Isn't this koala cute?!  For some reason, I kept calling him a panda when we were making this card at my October stamp club meetings.  This is another quick and easy card to make - and I used another stamp from my pile of sets that have not been inked up yet!  I told my club members I was NOT going to buy another stamp set until all the ones I already bought have been used.

We used the Smokey Slate Blendabilities to color the panda koala.  I am loving those markers!

October 2014 Club Card - Work of Art

This was the first card we made at my October stamp club meetings.   I really must come up with a new name for my monthly meetings because anyone is welcome and you do not need to make a monthly commitment.  Just RSVP when you are able to attend a class and pay a $7 materials fee or place a minimum $15 order.  But if you do decide to make a monthly commitment - you have the opportunity to earn lots of FREE Stampin' Up! merchandise, including exclusive hostess stamp sets.

CONTACT ME for more details.

We used the stamp set, "Work of Art" to make this Clean and Simple card.  I received this stamp set for FREE at the Stampin' Up! catalog launch last spring!  This is the first time I inked it up!  I was unsure what to do with this set, so I headed to Pinterest to get some ideas.  

Below are a few other ways to use this set:

(Less than 2 months until Christmas!)

I am known for giving my stampers homework and this month they are supposed to make a project using something that they bought from me but haven't opened up yet!  There was no complaining about this month's assignment!  They all had stamp sets or supplies that haven't been touched.  So I can hardly wait for November's meetings to see what they make.

I will be posting September's homework cards soon, so come back and check them out soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

October Stamp Club Project


Everyone who came to one of my October stamp club meetings made one of these cute boxes!  They are all made with the new Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlits Die from Stampin' Up!  These boxes are so quick and easy to make.  We had an interesting discussion about whether the bird was an owl or a turkey!  I CASED all these projects from Pinterest.  Visit MY PINTEREST BOARD to see over 50 cute projects you can make with this die.   The jack o' lantern was made with vellum and when you put an electric tea light inside - it glows!  Really cute!  The others are big enough to hold several pieces of wrapped candy.  Below are close up views of each box.

September's Club Card #2



This is the second card we made at my September stamp club meetings.  We used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die to cut three pieces - one each from Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral card stock.  We started with a Calypso Coral card base, layered on a piece of Baked Brown Sugar (4" x 5 1/4") then the Baked Brown Sugar "honeycomb" piece.  We adhered the Coral and Cantaloupe hexagon pieces onto the Brown Sugar piece in a somewhat random pattern.  Then we added some punched flowers,pearls, a stamped piece, and the card was complete.

My club members kept all the scraps left over from making this card - and will use those pieces to complete their homework assignment.  I can't wait to see what they come up with!

PLEASE VISIT THIS BLOG POST  to see their August homework projects. The voting was close, but the project with the most vote was Kelly's card.  She will get a prize of coordinating card stock, designer series paper, and ribbon.

If you would like to join the fun and stamp with me, visit my STAMPIN' UP! WEBSITE and RSVP to a club meeting.  You are under no obligation to make a monthly commitment to attend or purchase products.  You can place a minimum $15 order or pay a $7 materials fee.
