Stamp Club March 2018

The first card Stamp Club made is a watercolor wash.  The cards above were made by scribbling on watercolor paper with watercolor pencils.  Then an AquaPainter or wet paintbrush was run over the top of it to blend the colors and make the watercolor look.  After it dries you can stamp your words!

This card was made by spritzing the watercolor paper with water, using a Stampin' Spritzer.  Then use an AquaPainter to pick up ink from the inside of an ink pad and apply it to the moist watercolor paper.  Wait until it dries to stamp the image.  I also added some more ink with my AquaPainter after the image dried.

We made our own chevron!  We scored a 1" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock at 1/2" down the length, and then at each 1/2" across the width.  We cut up from the corners of the "width" lines to the center line, removed the triangle piece, and had the top of our chevron done.  We flipped it upside down and repeated the cutting to make our chevron complete!

Stamp Club members had the supplies they needed to make a card from the February 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Wildflower Wishes.  The envelopes have a beautiful inside design!!  What a fun surprise when you open the card!

This kit came with Garden Green ink.  Sahara Sand was listed as a coordinating color.

The Stamp Club party was a little different this month (we didn't meet because of our busy March schedules).  I still wanted to do a door prize, but had a hard time picking just one name.  I wanted everyone to win!  So... everyone DID win the door prize this month!  The Whisper White Narrow Notecards & Envelopes from the Occasions catalog, along with some Calypso Coral card stock and Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon, was in everyone's packet.  
And congratulations to our many winners! 😀🍀 
 I made a sample card with the supplies and decided to give it to Todd.  As you can see from the look on his face, he loves the card!
