January Stamp Club Cards

These are the cards my Stamp Club ladies made this month.  It was so nice to make some Spring cards!
For this first card, I ran some watercolor paper through the Big Shot in the Manhattan Flower embossing folder.  Then I coloured it in with my Aqua Painter and some Rose Red, Summer Starfruit and Bashful Blue ink.  Just squeeze the ink pads together so the ink pools in the lid of the pad, then use the Aqua Painter to pick up some ink from the lid and paint in the embossed image.

To finish it off, I added one of Stampin' Up!'s new Designer Builder Brads with some Rose Red cardstock in the center, along with some Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.  The card base is Rose Red, and the watercoloured piece is layered on some Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Petite Pairs in Basic Black.
Our next card is a Valentine's card using the new Happy Valentine single stamp (available in the Valentine Treat Bundle until January 21).  I started with a Basic Gray card base.  The next layer is Primrose Petals Core'dinations cardstock, run through the Big Shot in our new Honeycomb embossing folder (LOVE this!).  I then sanded the cardstock with our sanding block so the white core shows through.  The "lace" heart and heart-covered heart are both from the More Amore designer series paper.  I stamped the image in Pool Party ink and punched it out with the coordinating Full Heart punch (along with the designer paper heart).

The Pool Party ribbon is from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration ribbon & button pack, which you can earn for free with a $60 Sale-A-Bration order beginning on January 22 (more info to come)!  The pack also comes with Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango ribbon, plus Island Indigo, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry buttons.
For this next one, I CASEd Debbie Kolberg's card.  The card base is So Saffron, with Island Indigo and Very Vanilla for the layers.  She used Tea for Two designer series paper and a Tea Lace Paper Doily as well, then tied some Natural Trim ribbon (from the Spring Catalogue) around the center piece.  There is a piece of So Saffron punched with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch and embossed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  I adhered this with dimensionals over the ribbon.  Finally, the stamped piece is from Collage Curios, stamped in Sahara Sand, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade (the rose stamp is inked with Stampin' Write markers).  This is punched with the 1" Circle punch and adhered into the large Soda Pop Top (these are so cute!).  The Pop Top is adhered with mini glue dots.
As a bonus project, the ladies got to make a card using the My Little Valentine bundle, which includes the stamp set and the Sealed With Love simply sent card kit.  We tied some Pool Party Sale-A-Bration ribbon around the card.  Then we stamped the "for you" in Real Red, punched it out with the Small Oval punch, added a small rhinestone jewel and adhered it to the card with a dimensional.

Hope you enjoy these projects!

Blessings to you,
