September Stamp Club Project #3

Here is the final card that my club made. I saw online where someone had used the Medallion stamp for Christmas and wanted to recreate something like it. After starting the design, realized I had done it a bit backwards. I like how mine turned out though as well.

Things to Note:
-- Scallop Circle Punch used for the center of the 'wreath'
-- Stamping sponges used to get the red/green on the center of the 'wreath'
-- Brayer used to ink the main part of the Medallion stamp

Stamps: Medallion, Many Merry Messages
CS: Always Artichoke, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Always Artichoke, Real Red
Other: Scallop Circle Punch, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamping Sponges, Stampin' Dimensionals

That's it for the club projects - hope you enjoyed them!!

September Stamp Club Project #1

This card may look familar to some of you. That's because I posted one almost exactly like this before on my blog. I decided to focus on the Medallion stamp for my club projects this month. So, I CASEd myself. :) The only change was that I added a sentiment onto this one.

Things to Note:
-- Ink your brayer with your color of choice and then use that to ink the Medallion stamp. This helps to achieve an even all over inked stamp.

Stamps: Medallion, On Your Birthday
CS: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Other: 1/16" Circle Punch, Clear Circle Rhinestone Brads, Razzleberry Polka Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon, Brayer

Stop back tomorrow for another club project. Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

I just got this recently from The Stamps of Life. It is called Back2Basics and is a simple, yet fun set. There is so much you can do with it. You can see more samples on The Stamps of Life blog. I made this card for my niece. Apparently, the first card I made for her never arrived, so I'm hoping this one makes it to her.

It's hard to see, but I stamped the outline of flowers stamp in green on the background. Also, not able to be seen is the texture of the green card stock. Not sure of the colors of cardstock, as they came with my set. :)

Stamps: Back2Basics
CS: Green, Red, Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Cameo Coral
Other: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals (under the sentiment), Velvet Olive Ric Rac, Scallop Edge Punch

Thanks for stopping by - be sure to come back!!

UDI Inspiration Challenge #63

Yes - it is now Sunday and I'm posting my challenge card that should be posted on Thursdays. With my laptop issues, it has driven me crazy - not to mention put me behind on many things. I truly can not live without my laptop - sad, but true.

So, onto the challenge....I see now that I posted my pictures backward, but I'm going to keep it this way for the post. Easier than having to rearrange everything.

Things to Note:
-- Brayer used to get the 3 colors on the card stock
-- Used scrap paper that I tore to get the 'waves'

Stamps: Upsy Daisy
CS: Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede
Other: Soft Suede Polka Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon

Below was our Inspiration Photo. Isn't it beautiful? I love the bright Fall colors displayed here. I guess you can guess how I went with my card - the colors and how they were layered.

Be sure to check out the other member's of the challenge team to see what they came up with. You can find their blogs on the UDI Blog - on the sidebar under Inspiration Challenge Members.
