March Stamp Club projects

I am just going to post pictures of our projects from tonight real quick because I need to go to work in the morning! I will post directions later this coming week.

ETA: I have added instructions in this post. 

This is the page we did. Lots of watercoloring on the letters and the eggs. I also did some real stitching around a couple edges with a paper piercer, the mat pack, and embroidery thread. I used Frost White shimmer paint on the butterflies which are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit- so pretty! And a new technique with the ribbon :)
  • Stamps: My Matryoshka, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Well Scripted
  • paper: Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Kaliedescope DSP, watercolor paper
  • Ink: Melon Mambo, Summer Sun, Old Olive, Jet Black Stazon
  • Other: Aquapainter, Wide Oval and Scallop Trim border punches, Beautiful Wings embosslit and Simple Alphabet dies with Big Shot, Frost White Shimmer paint, sponge, Signo white gel pen, paper piercer and mat pack
 Here is a close up of the letters. I just love how they turned out! After cutting out the eggs (wide oval punch) and the letters from watercolor paper, I stamped then with line images with Stazon ink. It is permanent on any surface, so it will not run when you watercolor on it :). I then used markers to add a little bit of color to the images, then watercolored them with an Aquapainter. The ribbon effect is achieved by applying SNAIL to the back of the ribbon, then fold/pinch the ribbon as you stick it down to the paper. Easy peasy! You will notice that the butterflies are also shimmery. I applied Frost White Shimmer Paint to the paper before running through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings embosslit.

And a close up of the eggs.

This is the card that we made. I totally copied this from Lisa Reber, But I did add Frost White Shimmer paint to the embossed part, which really steps it up a notch!
  • Stamps: Well Scripted, Chocolate Bunny
  • Paper: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Whisper White
  • Ink: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede
  • Other: Other: Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder and Flower, Daisy #2 die with Big Shot, Fresh Favorites buttons, glue dots, Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon, Frost White Shimmer paint with a sponge

     And a close up of the details of the card. I colored the flower centers before applying the Shimmer Paint with a sponge so everything is shimmery. The bunny is stamped in Soft Suede on Soft Suede and then cut out. The Daisy and button are held on with a glue dot in the center.

    Ok, this is the chipboard frame that I made to use for this technique. I cut the chipboard down to 4-1/4x5-1/2", then traced an oval and cut it out with a Hobby Blade. This would be much easier with an oval steel rule die :)

    You will put this frame under the embossing folder, not inside when you run it through the Big Shot.

    The sandwich goes as follows:
    Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed (the thickest setting)
    Chipboard frame
    Embossing folder with card stock inside
    1 cutting pad

    And last but not least, an Easter candy carrot! So darn cute! And I got this idea from MIshelle H who got it from Becky Roberts. Sorry, no link!
    • Stamps: Woodgrain background stamp, Well Scripted
    • Paper: Only Orange, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
    • Ink: Only Orange, Chocolate chip
    • Other: Scallop Circle die with Big Shot, Scallop Oval punch, Scallop Circle punch. 1-3/4" Circle punch, Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, small cello bags, glue dots, staples and stapler, hemp twine
    To make the carrot cone, curl the edges in and staple it. Take 3 scallop oval punches and staple them to the back top. Attach the ribbon bow to the sentiment piece with a glue dot, then use a couple glue dots to attach to the carrot. To make the carrot shaped bag, take a small cellophane bag, fold bottom right corner up to left side of bag, then use SNAIL to adhere it this way.  Super easy!
      I hope you like them!

      The carrot was actually my original swap from Leadership...I've seen it out there a bit in cyberspace, so I'm glad people are enjoying the idea.
