March Scrapbook Club Layout

One more post!  This is the scrapbook layout that my club ladies made this month.
I totally CASEd this one as well.  This layout was designed by Shannon Briglia.  I'm so glad there are such creative demonstrators out there who share their work!  The page bases are Crumb Cake, layered with strips of Sweet Sorbet SAB designer series paper.  Then the flowers are made using the Floral Frames framelits dies, the Pansy punch and the Petite Petals punch with various pieces of Sweet Sorbet dsp and coordinating cardstock.

March Stamp Club Cards

I may as well keep posting and get everything up!  Here are the cards that my club ladies made this month.  You may be impressed to note that I actually came up with a couple of them myself! :)
This one is my own design.  I originally made this card for a swap that I participated in way back in December, so I thought I'd let my club ladies make it as well.  I started with a base of Coastal Cabana, then a layer of Brushed Silver.  I stamped the image from Happy Watercolor in black StazOn on some Whisper White cardstock, then stamped the abstract image from the same stamp set in Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding over the image.  The greeting is stamped in Silver Encore ink.  I added a strip of silver vellum to the left-hand side, then wrapped some Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon around it to finish the card.

This is another card I made for a swap that I participated in.  This one has Whisper White as a base, layered with Coastal Cabana.  The Crisp Cantaloupe piece is embossed with the Decorative Dots SAB embossing folder.  There is a strip of Sweet Sorbet designer series paper as well.  The image is from See Ya Later, stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe.  The butterflies are from Papillon Potpourri, stamped in Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I tied some white baker's twine around the card and added an In Color Boutique Details embellishment on top.
This is a card I CASEd from Brenda Rivera.  The base is Whisper White, layered with Pool Party.  I put a piece of Fresh Prints designer paper on that, then layered some Crumb Cake cardstock cut with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits die.  Finally, I added some flowers from Petite Petals stamped in Pool Party and punched with the coordinating Petite Petals punch.


February Stamp Club Cards

I apologize for not posting for so long!  This working full-time thing is really putting a crimp in my stamping and blogging time!  Luckily, we're on Spring Break this week, so I can get a bit caught up.  Here's a look at the cards that my club ladies made last month.  I used a lot of Sale-A-Bration products because I wanted to showcase them last month.
This first card is one that I CASEd from my upline, Winona Semler.  The card base is Smoky Slate, layered with Basic Gray that has been scored every inch horizontally with the Simply Scored tool.  The circle flowers are stamped in Blushing Bride from the Petal Parade stamp set, then punched with the 1-3/8" circle punch.  I wrapped some Blushing Bride chevron ribbon around from the back of the Basic Gray layer, and then added the circles on top with dimensionals.  Some white bakers twine tied around the ribbon at the top of the flowers and some small pearl jewels finish off the card.
I love this double ombre technique card that I CASEd from Rachel Tessman.  (Yes, I did a lot of CASEing this month!  I've been busy working and haven't had time to come up with my own designs!)  This card has Very Vanilla as a base with layers of Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo with matching butterflies.
This final card is one that I CASEd from Lisa Johnson.  The card base is Raspberry Ripple with a layer of Bermuda Bay that is embossed with the Decorative Dots SAB embossing folder.  The designer paper is from Birthday Basics, and the image from the See Ya Later set is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and Bermuda Bay.  There is some linen thread wrapped around the designer paper as well.

Thanks for reading!
