May Stamp Club

These cards were made when the Stamp Club met on May 11th. This first card uses those cool window sheets in the Occasions Mini. It was quick and easy, and the window sheets are so fun to work with! Someone asked about embossing on window sheets. I was 99% sure it would be ok. Well, I tried it tonight and I didn't have any problems with the window sheet melting or warping. Yeah! I even kept the heat on a little longer than needed and still had no problems.
This next card uses Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen to color in the flowers. The belnder pens give you just a little more control of the amount of moisture. So, if you have trouble with colors bleeding when you use an AquaPainter on more detailed images, you may want to try this. The polka dot background was made by inking up a brayer, rolling it on a texturz plate, and then running it through the Big Shot with the card stock. The texturz plates are cool by themselves, but with a little ink on them they really pop!

This card was a make-n-take. We used the Color Spritzer Tool and a Chocolate Chip marker on the scallop circle. The Pacific Point fringe was made by trimming off the edge of the Pacific Point ribbon and pulling the loose edges. Is that cool or what?! I learned that trick at the SU Regionals in Minneapolis (one of the many reasons I love being a SU demonstrator!).

But don't throw that ribbon away once you pull out the fringe! This 3 x 3 gift card uses what's left of the ribbon once you pull out the strings for the fringe. It's a quick and easy way to get coordinated fringe!

For the last make-n-take the choice was either a 3 x 6 card or 6 x 6 scrapbook page. Both projects use the sneak-peek Jumble Alphabet stamp set. I love this set, plus it's 20% off through the end of May!! So, rather than wait until the new catalog comes out in July and paying $43.95 for this set, you could get it now for $35.16. You could even order it online right now by clicking on the link to my SU website!

Happy Stamping!
