Stamp Club Sneak Peaks

So, I am going to be taking over as demonstrator for our monthly Stamp Club and tomorrow is the first time I will be "it". :) So, here are some sneak peaks to what we will be making. I'm excited and hope that everyone will like! I'm also excited about the idea of incorporating some challenges as well into the stamp nights. ;)

Fairy Fun

I started this card last week and finally added the sentiment the other day. Yeah! Love orange and pink together! :)
And of course I had to add some "fairy dust". :)

So, my sister-in-law sent me a pic of a card she recently stamped and I used it for inspiration.

She sent me this:

I kinda used a similar layout for this card:

and if you look down a couple of posts, you will see the sketch challenge I did. Well, I used her stamped images as inspiration for that card I made.

Thanks M for the inspiration and getting me to stamp more again! I actually made this card first and then went to Splitcoast to look for challenges. But you got me started! :)

Misty Celery Rose

Okay, so I loved the idea of these three colors together in this color challenge. If only I had them all. Soon!

Anyway this is a bit of a stretch for this color challenge, CC312, but I did what I could. (and added the craft paper color) I've also been dying to use these little bird inchies and I finally got to. :)

Sketch Challenge SC322

I cannot believe I did a challenge again!!! I actually started this almost two weeks ago, finished it last week, and am just now posting it. :) The challenges always help me to get back in the groove a bit faster though.

I actually incorporated the color challenge as well.

(except I had to substitute some colors with what I had on hand.)

Upside down ruffles

Isn't this such a simple and fun card too?!


Saw a similar card to this in my friend's magazine a week or so and I found time to stamp last week. Love it!

(Have some other fun ideas to use these ruffles for too! Soon!)

Unfinished projects

So, last week, I found a little time to work on a few projects that I have had undone from the past month to the past three years. haha

So, here is what I got done! :) (and started) lol

Vinyl lettering on a glass frame:

(Yes, I had two for some reason. I'll have to gift one. :))

More vinyl-on a wooden plaque this time with small frames to hang under it. They will have pics of each of my kids in them.

And then the next two projects:

More wooden plaques/frames...I painted them black and will eventually have black and white 8x10 pics to put on them like the colored pic shown in the 2nd pic. I want baby pics of each of my kids in b&w for these I think...although I liked the colored pic on it more than I thought I would too.

And these black blocks???? I made some at christmas for gifts. They are actually pretty big blocks. They are made from 2x4's my husband cut and glued together for me, so they are 4x4 blocks. I'll make them into picture blocks and add some stamping/decor on some sides as well. I can't wait to find time to finish them! :)
