Stamp Club Fun

In no particular time frame order I will be posting a variety of cards from this year over the next few weeks. I hope you find something to spark your creativity.


 With a request to use the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and Framelits from my August hostess and dear friend Cathy, the color combo I came across earlier for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #167  and finding the instructions for the little tote box at Crafty Hallet, I had a great time designing this set for club.

We made our own patterned designer paper for this project with the Festive Flurry stamps and the Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding color combo. Two fun Christmas cards and a little gift tote and our holiday crafting has begun.

My new Thinlit Card Dies had just arrived off the UPS truck, so I had to use one of them in the design. My first Circle Card Thinlet did not work real well with my Big Shot and was not quite as successful for our club project as I would have liked. True to their good customer service, Stampin' Up! sent out a replacement. There are not too many companies anymore that stand behind their products like SU! does. Their products are wonderful and the service for my customers or myself is fabulous.  I just received my 5 year pin and hope to have many more years as a demo to come.

Products used include, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inks and cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Festive Flurry Stamp set and matching Framelits, Circle Card Thinlet Die set, Very Merry Tags stamp set, 7/8" & 1 1/4" scallop circle punches & 1/8" silver ribbon.
