Don't fall out of your chairs

I'm posting two days in a row! I know, don't fall out of your chairs, okay? While planning my stamp club projects this past week, I had the basics of this center-step card done. It wasn't working for me, but I played a bit more with it this weekend. The little "ghost" is a case, sorry but I don't remember who I saw it from. It uses the owl punch body, turned upside down and trimming off the feet. I think it works for this card quite well.

Another Scrappy Saturday

Today's Scrappy Saturday project is another card. This one is rather simple. I had a piece of stamped card stock from when I was playing with the Bleach-Smooch technique. It's very similar to the previous post. The stamp set used is French Foilage (I love this set!). This one is on Crumb Cake card stock, and the ink colors are Pear Pizzaz and Chocolate Chip.

I simply took the piece that measured 5" x 3-3/4" and cut it into three 1-5/8" strips. Put a length of ribbon (Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding) around the top and attached a small tag made from the Tiny Tags stamp set and the Medium Jewelry tag punch.

September Stamp Club Projects

Last night I met with my stamp club gals. What fun we had, even though there were a number of gals who couldn't make it for varying reasons.

This first card we made uses a new-to-me technique called Bleach-Smooch. Fun, and stunning results too. The stamp sets used are French Foilage and Petite Pairs. The photo really doesn't do justice as you can't see the shimmer that is left on the bleached leaves.

This next card uses the center step technique. It looks difficult, but is quite simple. For this card, we used the Jack of All Trades and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. The hat and face on the pumpkin were heat embossed.

The final project we made is a cute little purse. This one is holding a packet of fun-size M & M's, but it would hold gift cards really well also. It takes only 1/4 of a sheet of Designer Series Paper to make and a few scores.

Thanks for stopping by.
