May Club Card #4 + Swap card

Okay, this one was my fav from club last month. I think just b/c it was fun to make and try a new technique. I love having someone else prepare and find new techniques for me to try and to have all the stuff ready to go too! Love it! Thanks S!

This was made using wax paper wadded up and then ironed onto the paper...can't remember what kind of paper this is...we were talking that night and wondered if photo paper would also work with this. Anyway. after that, you just sponge color onto the paper and it resists the color where the wax melted onto the paper. I think my kids would also love trying this. You could make all kinds of designs with the color too.

Gorgeous card from S to wap that night. I don't ever seem to tire of this stamp. I like how she used the crystal effects instead of embossing powder too. Made the scene more shiny. :)

May Club Card #3

Don't you love the graduation cap? And honestly, this was one of the fastest card to put together at club...now S had it all scored for us though too. See the little pocket inside to add some cash? Unfortunately, at club, ours didn't come with cash included. ;)

May Club Card #1

What a fun and easy card. I forget about my crimper half the time, but I like it here on the white background. And the flower petals are made from an oval punch and then another circle punch inside the oval.

A Simple Thanks will do

Couple more...

Where's my groove?

Ever since my baby was born 3 months ago, I have been trying to make a bunch of baby thank you cards. Here are a few I made a month or more ago and honestly, I've never gotten them sent out or made near as many as I still need. I can't find my groove or mojo with them. I do like the first one, but the other two...blah...I was trying to stay simple and minimal stamping, just b/c I have no time and need to get them done. I'm about to find an old design and just copy it a bunch of times though, b/c they need to get done and these are just O.K.

I do really like the faux leather paper on the left panel on the first card and would like to use it more...when to find the time though...?

Simple is my New Middle Name

Stamp, stamp, stamp. Punch, punch, punch. Glue, glue, glue.

Made this last night and actually like it! Popped up the centers of the flowers and the sentiment with dimensionals.

Haven't stamped in awhile, still need to show you the cards we made at club night a couple weeks ago...soon. :)

BTW-The flowers I punched here...do they look familiar? They are the same ones I used to make the citrus circles below on the popsicles. :)

Is it a Bread Box?

Or a circus tent? haha I wanted it to be cheery, so I picked this colorful paper and didn't think anything about it until I added the scalloped edges to the top and then though..."It looks like a circus tent!" Oh well. Cheery. haha

The one I posted below is for a mini loaf. I made up my own to use for a full size loaf pan. The sides are shorter...had to do it that way for it to work on one sheet of paper, but I think it still looks good. Not as much room to place anything on the side, but I still think it dressed it up more. I think I may have liked it better, if I chose different paper...next time! :)

Making this...

tomorrow!!! I found this on a fellow stamper's blog a long time ago. This pic is from her blog of the bread box she made. Here is a link to a tutorial for it on her blog. I'm excited! I've wanted to make it ever since I saw it. Got the bread made tonight to take to a friend. Now for the box...I'll show you pics later. :)
