I LOVE Stamp Club because it gives me a chance to catch up with my friends and help them create some lovely projects. I look forward to this night monthly! This month we focused on some Autumn themed cards. The cards were very versatile and could be used for almost any occasion in the Fall season.
Here is the first one we made:
This uses the Among the Branches stamp set (139823), Into the Woods Designer Series Paper (139586), and Woodland Textured Embossing Folder (139673). The colors are Daffodil Delight (8 1/2 x 5 1/2), Early Espresso (5 1/4 x 4), and Old Olive (5 x 3 3/4). The small Strips are cut using the Triple Banner Punch (5 1/4 x 1 1/2-both). The Ribbon is a small piece of the Burlap Ribbon. The sentiment was cut using the Circle Framelits Collection. And of course, there had to be some Pearls.
The next card we made was this one:
This had a fun fold that was created by folding the 8 1/2 x 11 piece in half and then folding one side back on itself to the original fold. Then the layers were added onto that. This card uses the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set, the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Deco Labels Framelits, and the Mossy Meadow 5/8” Striped Cotton Ribbon. The colors were Mossy Meadow (8 1/2 x 5 1/2), Very Vanilla (5 1/4 x 4- 2 pieces), and Soft Suede (5 x 3 3/4). The bike and swing were stamped using Smoky Slate as well. This is such a beautiful and versatile card. I just love how easy it went together.
We have such a fun time at Stamp Club. I hope you can join us for one soon!
One thing I have been striving to do, is to get my cards out in a store to be sold. I don’t sell them for a big profit, I just want to use them to hopefully find a few more customers and friends. I enjoy having them in a location where others can enjoy their beauty and use them to hopefully brighten someones day. In a day and age where everything is digital, it makes my heart flutter when I receive a real piece of mail that was sent to me by someone who cares about me. A facebook message just isn’t the same as receiving a hand stamped greeting card. Here is my card display in Rustic Reflections Vendor Mall in downtown Crestview (Main Street). Its just a little corner by the checkout, but it seems to be gaining some interest If you are in Crestview, stop in and check it out… and you will want to grab some homemade chocolate while you are there! 😉
People often think I’m a crazy person when I tell them what I do for a “business”. They say things like “You made that?!?” and “Can you teach me?!?”. The answer is YES! Not only can I teach you to make beautiful handmade cards and projects, BUT, I would LOVE to help you learn! Seven years ago, I started down one of the most fun and fulfilling roads I have ever journeyed down. I became a Stampin’ Up demonstrator! What that means, is that I invite people into my home and help them to create beautiful projects that they can be proud of and share with their friends and families. One thing that I have learned on this journey, is that these moments are about so much more than stamps and ink! They are opportunities for me to get to know some of the most genuine and kind people I have ever had the privilege to meet. To these wonderful ladies, I truly enjoy our stamping time and I look forward to our conversations each month! Here are a few pictures that I snapped (with my stampers’ permission) to share.
