3-D Club Project

As promised, here is the third project we made at my Stamp Club last Thursday night.

This card uses the beautiful new Vintage Vogue stamp set found in the Occasions mini. This card is actually a 3-d card because it stands up but also will fold flat for mailing.

There is a window sheet (acetate) in the front to allow you to look through at the image inside. The flower on the front is cut out and a button added to the middle of the flower.

This is a view of the card from the front to show you a better view of how it stands and how everything is stamped on.

Club Projects

Last Thursday was my Stamp Club and we made some really cute cards. We used some new stamps from the Occasions mini and played with the new FREE punch from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.This first card uses the bird image from the level 3 hostess set, The More The Merrier. The heart in the middle was punched out three times using Real Red cardstock. Each heart was folded in half and then glued together. The most exciting thing on this card is the scalloped edge border which was punched out using the new punch which I got for FREE when I placed a $65 order. You too can earn free items from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue by placing any $65 order.

This second card is a cute baby card. We used the monkey stamp from the new set Fox and Friends which is available in the Occasions mini. Each monkey is punched out using the scallop square punch and the ribbon is the Soft Suede polka-dotted ribbon. The border on this card is made using the eyelet border punch.

If you are interested in joining a stamp club to learn new techniques and have a fun night of stamping, contact me today. I will be back tomorrow to show you the third project we made.
