Another Sunday Afternoon Card

This is the other card I made on Sunday afternoon.  I made 6 of each card.  I think I found this one on Splitcoaststampers, but I'm not positive, so I apologize to whoever made the original.  I only changed the colors of cardstock, but otherwise it's the same card.  I've recently started stamping matching envelopes and can't believe that I didn't do it years ago.  I used to scoff at people who did because I know that they get torn open and thrown away, but I think they make the cards look more classy (or something like that).

Sunday afternoon card

This is one of the cards I made on Sunday afternoon.  It's totally cased from  You can see the original here .  The only thing I changed was the sentiment.  I wish that SU had more large sentiments that I like.  They only have a few, and I don't care for any of them.  This sentiment stamp was a learning experience for me.  It's a clear acrylic stamp (I don't remember who makes it) and when I attempted to stamp it on my desk, I couldn't get a clear image. I've had this problem with the clear stamps before and usually give up and get rid of them.  This time I remembered a tip I was given some time in the past.  I used my Stampin Pierce Mat from SU as a pad and it worked great.  Now I wish I hadn't given up on the other stamps that I re-homed.  I love this card, even though I wouldn't normally care for the colors.

July Stamp Club

(The rest of the cards)

Here is card #2 from our July Stamp club.  This one is my 2nd favorite for this month, after the screen card. This is all black and white, which is very striking and elegant looking.  Great birthday card for a guy and I used it for my husband, who is turning 50 this week.  All supplies for my stamp clubs are from Stampin Up!.

This card is super easy and looks really cool.  This one is from Barb Brimhall's demo event that I went to a while back.  The original card was done with the new Blackberry Bliss ink, but this one has Raspberry Ripple instead.  Thank you Barb!

Stamp Club Sneak Peak!

This card is a sneak peek from our July Stamp Club, coming up this Friday (July 11,2014).  I used the following supplies:  (All supplies are from Stampin Up!) - Whisper White, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, & Pumpkin Pie cardstock; Sweet Taffy DSP, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive inks; Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Decorative Label punch, Scallop Border punch, Petite Petals punch,  Petite Pairs & Petite Petals stamp sets, Daffodil Delight 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, Rhinestones & foam mounting tape.

This card was surprisingly easy to make.  The largest amount of time was in deciding on the papers and layout.  I had a couple of different styles in mind and I'm glad I chose this one because I love it.  This card will make a great gift in itself.  It will cost a little extra to mail and I would put it into a padded envelope for protection. Most of my cards are given in person, so I won't have to mail very many of them.

I absolutely love this style and will be creating many more!

Thanks for looking!

Isn't this the cutest thing ever?!?  This adorable little canning jar holds 4 Hershey Nuggets candy bars.  The canning jar is made with the Lawn Fawn Summertime Charm stamp set and matching die.  I'm going to make more of them using the Itty Bitty Banners stamps and dies from SU.  I cased this from also.  Very cute!

January Stamp Club

This card was very simple to make and was cased from  She is a Stampin Up demonstrator on the east coast who has a wonderful website where she shares her creations.  She also has lots of videos.  This card uses Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock and Black Stazon Ink.  The stamp set that I used is Lacey & Lovely.  It also uses several scallop punches and rhinestone jewels.

This card also came from Brand's website.  It uses the Swallowtail butterfly stamp along with the Loving Thoughts word set.  Basic Black & Whisper White cardstock and Black Stazon ink were used.  I took a photo of the wrong card but I also put a large rhinestone on the body of the butterfly and one to the left of the sentiment. The photo can't do this card justice as the butterfly actually has 3 layers.

This stunning card is made using Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie cardstock, as well as the Stampin Up Crepe paper.  The stamp set is Regarding Dahlias. The flower is stamped on the crepe paper, then colored using a blender pen and ink pads.  After coloring the flower, put a layer of glue on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then add the flower.  Tear the edge after the 2 are put together.  This card has very vibrant and fun colors.

This card also uses the Regarding Dahlias stamp set and uses Basic Black, Whisper White & Daffodil Delight cardstock.  It also uses the watercolor paper from SU.  Stamp the flower image on the watercolor paper, color with Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight markers, then spritz with water.  This will cause the colors to spread out and glow.  Also very stunning in real life.

Join us for the February stamp club on the 21st to make some fun cards using the Flower Shop bundle.
