August Stamp Club Cards

I am so fortunate to have had lots of ladies sign up for clubs this past year, and one of my clubs is actually going through the summer.  This is our last meeting as this group, and I came up with some special cards for them.
This first card uses the Iris Twist technique.  I used the gorgeous new Woodland Walk designer series paper and pulled my colours from there.  I am so happy that Wild Wasabi is back! It looks so nice with the Chocolate Chip.  The stamp is from the Cute by the Inch level 2 hostess set, which I inked using my Stampin' Write markers.

The second project is the card purse, which is also found on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used the new Celebrations designer series paper and Party This Way stamp set with Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Bashful Blue.  For embellishments, I used Certainly Celery satin ribbon and Brights buttons.

As soon as I saw the Smooch Spritz Resist technique on Splitcoast, I had to try it!  I did CASE the sample card by Lydia Fiedler.The card base is Whisper White, embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the Big Shot.  I cut a scallop circle of Presto Patterns designer series paper and sponged Pacific Point ink all over it.  The I spritzed it with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz and sponged that as well.  To finish the card, I added a Scallop Oval greeting with a clip tied with Whisper White organdy ribbon.

Sparkly Christmas Ornaments!

This is my second card for the Christmas in July One Layer Card swap. 
I started with a Bravo Burgundy base and embossed the greeting from Contempo Christmas in gold embossing powder.  Then I sprayed the card with gold Smooch Spritz.  I stamped the ornament pieces using the rock and roll technique with More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy ink before punching them out with the Ornament punch.  I then put a little yellow rhinestone circle brad through the center ornament and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to all three ornaments before attaching them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  It looks a lot more sparkly and glittery in real life!

Blessings to you,
