November Stamp Club projects

It has been a terrible month for colds and flu around here.    Many of my club ladies have been affected, either they or their children are sick.    We had just a small group last night but we had a good time.  All three of our projects were CASE'd from someone.   Thank goodness there are creative people out there willing to share their amazing talent.

Our first project will make a nice little gift for maybe a teacher, bus driver, etc.

I found a great video by Dawn Olchefske showing how to make this cute project.   Check out her blog here for the great tutorial.    Walmart has a new variety pack of cocoa packets.   You can get cocoa flavoured like coffee crisp, rolo or after eight.   Yum!   The Scentsational Season bundle is getting a lot of use in my Christmas projects this year.   Love it!


PAPER:   early espresso, crumb cake, very vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP
INK:   gumball green, early espresso, cherry cobbler
STAMPS:   Scentsational Season
ACCESSORIES:   big shot, holiday collection framelits, polka dot embossing folder, 2 1/2" circle punch, stitched ribbon, basic rhinestone, cropadile (retired).

Our next project also uses the Holliday Collection framelits that come in the Scentsational Season Bundle:

Inside card

This is another CASE'd project, this time from Kay Kalthoff.    I found Kay's video tutorial on our demo site, Stampin' Connection.   This is a great project that uses the Festival of Prints DSP Stack.   Kay's video shows the perfect way to utilize a whole piece of the patterned paper with very minimal waste.  After trimming the patterned piece for your card front, you can use the excess on the inside of the card and the envelope.   The tree cut out using the framelits is also used inside the card.    Love it!


PAPER:  cherry cobbler, lucky limeade, Festival of Prints DSP, very vanilla
INK:  black stazon
STAMPS:   More Merry Messages
ACCESSORIES:   big shot, holiday collection framelits, cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon

Our final project was a birthday card:

This was a partial CASE from Rochelle Blok from one of our demo FB pages.    I love making these tulle rosettes and using the jumbo rounds makes it so much easier than fighting with my hot glue gun.  The core-dinations paper with the rosette gives the card a nice vintage look.


PAPER:  crumb cake, cherry cobbler, early espresso core-dinations, early edition DSP, very vanilla
INK:  chocoloate chip, old olive, early espresso
STAMPS:   Something to Celebrate (retired)
ACCESSORIES:   big shot, apothecary accents framelits, circle scallop punch, square punch, build a blossom punch, jumbo rounds adhesive

I hope you enjoyed this month's club projects.  Thanks for stopping by.
