Well I did one...

I've only just scratched the surface using the Medallion stamp. I managed to play with it just once, stamping the image in Rose Red. I hadn't originally planed on a whimsical look, but after I cut the image in half the card just took on a life of its own! Anyway I have a scrapbook page brewing in my head that I hope to find time to start on this weekend!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
INK - Rose Red, Perfect Plum
PAPER - Rose Red, Summer Sun, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Pale Plum
STAMPS - Medallion, Great Friend
OTHER - White Gel Pen, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals's FRIDAY! I've posted a new DPS for sketch number 200 over on Splitcoast:

Stamper's Club is BACK!

Back on my monthly agenda is Stamper's Club. Our first meeting was last night, and it was FUN! We did the thank you card from Ladies Night (see my last post) along with two additional projects, a 6x6 scrapbook page and we stamped on a 2x2 ceramic tile and made little magnets!

This is the magnet we did. So quick and super easy! Everyone had a choice of what they wanted to stamp on their tile. Several opted for a butterfly image...they all came out cute!
Stampin' Supplies:
INK - StazOn, Red Sharpie Permanent Marker
STAMPS - Game Night
OTHER - Cermic tile, Heat Tool, Magnets with adhesive backing

The last project was this sweet little scrapbook page. This was really easy and quick to put together thanks to the Big Shot and I think this was my favorite project of the evening. To add a photo where the Top Note Die is, I suggest an image approximately 2-3/4 X 4."

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - So Saffron textured 12x12 trimmed to 6x6, Tempting Turquoise, Razzelberry Lemonade DSP
INK - Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink, and Melon Mambo Marker
STAMPS - Cheep Talk
OTHER - Glue Dots, Scallop Circle Die, Top Note Die, Chipboard heart (On Board Essentials)

My girls liked this one so much they wanted to make one too, so this morning I cut some Certainly Celery Card Stock into 6x6 pieces. Then I gave them some retired paper to choose from so they could do their own versions. Aside from using the Big Shot, Sydney made hers without any help from me...and she even added a photo!

Natalie also let me help her tape the paper in place, but the stamping is 100% NitNat!

Fun With Friends

Last Thursday I had my monthly technique workshop I call Ladies Night. We made two cards and did two techniques.

This first card uses one of my favorite sets in the new catalog, Lots of Bots. We simply stamped the robot image and water colored it with the Water color pencils. It was nice to also do a card with an interesting fold. The completed card is square and measures 4-1/4" X 4-1/4" when closed. The base is 8-1/2" X 4-1/4" and it's scored at 2-1/8" on either side to create the opening.

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White
INK - StazOn, Going Gray Classic Ink
STAMPS - Lots of Bots
OTHER - Water Color Pencils, Aquapainter

For this thank you card we used a couple of punches a little paper piercing and I incorporated the bleach technique. Can you tell I'm in with the Razzle Dazzle stamp set?

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - Rich Razzelberry, Apricot Appeal, Gable Green, and Orchid Opulence
INK - Rich Razzleberry, and "bleach"
STAMPS - Razzle Dazzle
OTHER - Stampin' Dimensionals, Eyelet Border Punch, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack
