Hello everyone. Well, it is almost the end of another busy week. The highlight of my week was Stamp Club on Wednesday. I sure do look forward to seeing my ladies. This week we worked on a 12 x 12 scrap page. Planning a scrap page is still stretching my comfort zone but this layout came to me when I thought of the Bliss stamp set:
I told the ladies to bring two pictures of what they felt captured blissful moments. It is so neat to see what everyone's version of bliss is. Of course, chocolate seems to be a favourite amongst most of us. This layout used the Bliss and Notes & Details stamp sets. The Notes & Details set is perfect for scrapping. The colours used on this page were Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and Always Artichoke. My favourite model was kind enough to provide the action shots. :)
Here are two cards that we did for Club, in addition to the scrap page:
The Easter card was CASED from Kimberly Van Diepen who happens to be totally awesome. Check out her site: http://stampinbythesea.com/ I am her number one fan. This card uses the emboss resist technique. Kim's version used the Bliss stamp. The only thing I changed was to use the Easter Blossoms set instead. The card base is Baja Breeze, the top note is Whisper White sponged with Baja Breeze. The background stamp is En Francais in Crumb Cake. The embellishments are Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon and a basic pearl.
Our last card was quick and simple and would make a good masculine birthday card. This card uses the Bring on the Cake stamp set stamped on Very Vanilla using Soft Suede. This was then punched out with the 2 1/2" circle punch, sponged with Soft Suede then layered on Gold Shimmer paper. The card base is Soft Suede with a layer of Soft Suede patterns paper from the Neutral Patterns Stack and a strip of Very Vanilla run through the crimper. (The crimper is making it's way back!!! Yay) We touched up the top of the card by paper piercing the corners using the mat pack and the paper piercer. Simple!!!
So that's what I've been up to lately. I have more projects to work on this weekend and will post picks soon.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
