August Club Card #2

Below are two versions of a Halloween card we made at my August Stamp club meetings.  We used the stamp set, Holiday Home, from the 2014 Holiday Catalog and the Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies (to cut out the house.)
 The main difference between these cards is how we made the haunted house.  The first house was stamped on Whisper White card stock and colored using Smokey Slate Blendabilities markers.
The second house was stamped onto Basic Gray AND Daffodil Delight card stock.  I cut the windows out of the Daffodil card stock and glued them on the Basic Gray cardstock.

Most of my club members chose to use the Blendabilities.  These markers are FABULOUS for showing depth and dimension when coloring an image.

If you have any questions about how to make this card, please CONTACT ME

Tuesday's Tip - Stampin' Sponge Tip

I sponge color onto almost every card I make.  I like to use a different sponge for each ink - instead of using one sponge for similar colors or washing the sponges after using them.  Watch the video to see how I label and store my sponges!

There are a lot of Stampin' Up! specials going on right now.

August Club Card 1

 This is the first card we made made at my August stamp club meetings.  It is an interlocking card.  Below is a photo that shows how the card opens.

I was inspired by Julie Davison and Dawn Olchefske to try this fun card.  This "WOW" card is really quite easy to make.  I used the Daydream Medallions stamp set and the coordinating Floral Framelit Dies - which BOTH can be yours for FREE if you purchase a Big Shot this month.  There are 4 other stamp set/ framelit bundles you could choose for free.  Already have a Big Shot?  Then you can save 15% when purchasing one (or more!) of these bundles.

August Stamp Club's 3-D Project

My stamp club meetings are this weekend and below is the 3D project we will be making - a fry box, using the new Fry Box Bigz Die from Stampin' Up!
You can fill this box with almost anything - to give as a little treat.  It was super easy to make, so this would make the perfect party favor or classroom treat.  (School's starting soon!)  It could also be used for your holiday place settings.  I made my box using retired designer series paper.  My club members will get to choose whether to make a Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed box.

I used the stamp set Tags 4 You to make the label.  It works perfectly with the Bracket Label punch.  This set is only available for another week!  When the new Holiday Catalog is released on August 28, this and several other stamp sets will also retire.  You can view the retiring stamp sets by CLICKING ON THIS LINK

If there is anything on this list that you must have - you can order now by CLICKING HERE.  If you place on order online, please use the hostess code: EFEZCMPN

You may also CONTACT ME to help you place your order.
