October Stamp Club Cards

Here are the cards we will be making at this month`s Stamp Clubs.

Of course, we need to make something Halloween-y!  I made this spider card last year, but not with my clubs (I learned how to make the spider after my October clubs had met last year!)  So this year we get to make him!  I used the Cast-A-Spell designer series paper.  The spider is made using the Photo Corners, Scallop Circle, 1/2" Circle and 1/4" Circle punches.

I really wanted to showcase the Sweet Treats cups, so this second card is a CASE of this card on Splitcoast.  I adjusted it to make a pull-out tab so that you can get the candies out without ruining the card. The Yoyo  Yellow tab on the right that says "Sweet Treats" (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) pulls out to uncover the candies.  I also used the Heard From the Heart set with Real Red and Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write markers (which I realize now I should have stamped in the other direction - I'll make sure I do that at Stamp Club!).  Some Real Red polka dot grosgrain ribbon finished off the card.

This final card uses the Spotlighting technique.  I really wanted to show a simple quick technique because the Sweet Treats card might take awhile!

For this card, I stamped the bird from Asian Artistry in Soft Suede, then stamped the bird portion again in Ruby Red and Garden Green (which didn't show up well in the photo!).  I punched the new section out with the 1 1/4" Circle punch, layered it on a 1 3/8" Ruby Red Circle and adhered it over the branches.  For the background white piece, I used the new Perfect Details Texturz Plate with my Big Shot.
