July Stamp Club

For stamp club this month, I wanted to show the new Blendabilities markers.  I absolutely love coloring with these markers!  They give such vibrant color and the blending is so easy to achieve!  This first card was the one my club ladies made.  The flower is from Flower Shop colored in using hte Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities markers  The background inages are from Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Sahara Sand ink onto Sahara Sand card stock.  The greeting is from the stamp set Remembering Your Birthday.

Here, I showed a "stepped up" card that adds a smaller flower from the stamp set Petite Petals.  The smaller flower is raised up with a Stampin' Dimensional and a Basic Pearl jewel colored with the darkers of the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities marker finishes off the look.  Both cards use a strip of Designer Series Paper from the Moonlight DSP stack, which is proving to be VERY popular since it's been on backorder a number of times already!

This next card I cased from another talented demonstrator, but I cannot remember who.  If it was you, please let me know and I will gladly give you credit!  

The look is acheived by stamping the flowers and greeting onto Basic Black card stock using VersaMark ink and then heat embossing white embossing powder over the top.  Those white flowers are then colored in using the Blendabilities markers.  Here I used darkest of the Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight markers.  The greeting is given the varigated look by coloring the top with the lightest Coastal Cabana marker and the lower part with the darkest Coastal Cabana marker.  

The final project was a small post-it note holder that would make a great gift.  The base card stock is Lost Lagoon, cut 6-7/8" by 3-1/4" and then scored at 3-1/4" from each end .  This holds perfectly a 3" by 3" post-it note pad, held in by 3 Mini Glue Dots.  The "take note" image on the front is from a past My Paper Pumpkin kit (the one where we got to make the note pad).  It's stamped in Lost Lagoon, punched out using the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, layered onto a Hello Honey 1-3/8" circle and finally layered onto a Basic Gray starbust cut using the Sizzix Big-Shot and the Starburst Framelits.  It's all held together with a piece of Hello Honey 3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon.  Oh, and before I forget the Designer Series Paper is again from the Moonlight paper stack.

Thanks again for stopping by.  Happy stamping!
