Stamp Club September 2011

One of the make-n-takes we did was made with a notecard from the SU catalog. Seal the envelope, cut off about an inch from the short side, and punch a half-circle with the 2 1/2" circle punch. Stamp, then wrap ribbon around the outside. The card slides in and out. The finished card is below. The colors used are Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink, along with Old Olive and Basic Black.

The thank you card (below) was made by folding a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Basic Gray card stock at 2 1/8" on both ends. The card opens in the middle. To do the baby wipe technique, fold a baby wipe in half. Then put drops of reinker on the folded end. Use a few colors if you want. Rub it across a piece of glossy white card stock. Rub it over the card stock a few times until you get the look you want. You can do straight lines, swirls, etc. Let it dry for a few minutes, and then stamp an image on top with Staz On ink. It's a little messy, but worth a few ink stains on your hands! The reinker colors I used are Riding Hood Red and Calypso Coral.

The easel card, below, is fun to make (and receive!) and fairly easy once you get the folding down. I found great directions at in the Resources (search for easel card). The Pool Party card stock is scored at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8" Sorry the picture is so small. Not sure what I did wrong with that but I'm too pooped to try to fix it right now. And thanks, Stacey, for saving the day with some extra card stock so we could actually finish the card! :)

Happy Stamping!
