March Stamp Club Projects

We've been experiencing some strange weather here in Colorado the last couple of months.  Some unseasonably warm days that make you think it's spring or even summer, and then next thing you are right back into the heart of winter with cold and snow!

Last month when I was supposed to travel to the northern suburbs for my monthly stamp club, it was very cold and snowy.  After rescheduling once, hoping for great weather the following week, I ended up canceling all together when it was cold and snowy once again!  So this month, we made the projects I'd planned for the previous month AND a new project just in time for easter!

This card idea came from Mary Fish.  You can see her ceation here.

Stamp set:  Time to Celebrate (hostess only)
Colors:  Tuxedo Black, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Whisper White
Accessories:  Sizzix Big Shot, Circles Collection Framelits dies, Brights Color Dots, Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals.

This beautiful card was inspired by a card made at a shoebox swap I participated in back in January at Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference.  Sheri's card used the stamp I Love Lace for the background and the phrase from the stamp set Painted Petals.  Because it's Sale-a-Bration, I wanted to use SAB sets, so I chose the phrase from Best Day Ever and the background stamp from the Occasions Catalog, Something Lacy.

Stamp sets:  Something Lacy & Best Day Ever
Colors:  Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
Accessories:  Bow Builder Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive

This file card was inspired from Stampin' Up!'s talented designers.  It uses the Envelope Punch Board to make a fun and simple file card.

Stamps:  Best Day Ever
Colors:  Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Accessories:  Envelope Punch Board, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Best Year Ever DSP (SAB), Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (SAB), Paper Trimmer, Project Life Corner Rounder Punch, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Easter card.  It was inspired by a card made by Brian King.  When I first saw this cute stamp set, I thought it would be great for Spring.  So, that's what I did!

Stamp sets:  Cheerful Critters & Crazy About You
Colors:  Tuxedo Black Ink, Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Tangelo Twist, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede.
Accessories:  Fringe Scissors, Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine, Envelope Punch Board & 2013-15 In-Color DSP Stack (for envelope).

Thanks again for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!
