September Stamp Club Projects

Well it is happening again just like every other harvest season, I think I make enough projects to share with you during I am too busy to create more and I start to run out.  We are currently in the end stages of potato harvest and will be going straight back to the combines for soybeans when we finish.  There will be a few days without posts coming up, but hopefully not too many!  I will try to at least send you a couple each week.

These are the September stamp club projects, we were able to get together before the potato harvest began fortunately!  

The first card uses two dynamic impressions folders - Tufted and Tin Tile along with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

The next card showcases the Wishing You Well stamp set and Neutrals designer series paper... 

Finally, the layout uses the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper and a die cut from the Stitched Seasons collection.

We always have room for more both in the monthly and Virtual (every other month) stamp clubs - if you wish you join us or just try it out contact me here.

Spooky September

This month I may not be sharing alternative project ideas for the Paper Pumpkin kit - my daughter has taken the kit while I have been busy harvesting potatoes!  She is going to use the cute little treat bags for her 7th grade class on Halloween so it will be used perfectly.

Hope you enjoy the video and make sure to sign up for your surprise kit before the 10th of October!

Guitar Birthday

I went back to the Epic Celebrations stamp set from this year's Sale-a-bration for these birthday cards.  The backgrounds and sentiments are a little different on each one but I thought the cards would be good for either males or teenagers.

Each has the Sheet Music background stamp image behind the guitars and some Gallery Grunge images as well.  The guitars were stamped on Wood Textures designer series paper and then cut out with the paper snips.  The card on the left uses some Springtime foils specialty paper in the background and the one of the right uses some Tropical Escapes designer series paper.

Just a Note

This is another card I added to a donation basket recently using the Wishing You Well stamp set.  The background is Old Olive embossed with the Tin Tile dynamic impressions folder and the card base is Soft Suede.

For the ink colors, I chose Merry Merlot, Old Olive and Night of Navy.

Thankful For You

I recently donated some cards for an auction and fundraiser locally and put together a few of these cards to include with the donation.  The stamp set called Painted Harvests is fitting for this time of year in North Dakota as we are currently harvesting potatoes on our farm.

I used Crushed Curry and Mango Melody ink for the flowers and Soft Suede and Early Espresso for the inside of them.  There is a piece of Natures' Poem designer series paper and a doily behind the matted stamped layer as well.

Festive Farmhouse Dandelion

The designs in the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper package are intended for the holidays, but most of the patterns can be used for just about anything.  I chose the wood grain pattern for some birthday cards using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

Festive Farmhouse 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper
Festive Farmhouse 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Designer Series Paper 147820
Price: $11.00
Rustic squares, wood patterns, and classic Christmas songs. Makes you think of comfy chairs and a crackling fire.

* 12 sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Coordinating colors: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

I first used the lightest Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends marker on some Whisper White card stock and then I used the Wink of Stella glitter brush over the top before adding the dandelion image.  Then, I added a few Metallic pearls for accents before adding it to the card.

The baker's twine wrapped around the card is from the Nature's Twine collection.

Doily Thank You

In keeping with the theme of the last several days, here are a few more cards made with the Graceful Glass designer vellum and Stampin' Blends markers.

The pattern on this sheet of vellum was also very easy to cut down since it had 6" long panels, I did have to waste part of the ends this way since the cards are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

For accents I added some delicate white doilies and the sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set.

Just a Note

Here are a few more cards made with the Graceful Glass designer vellum that I put together recently.  The background is created with my new favorite embossing folder, the Tin Tile Dynamic impressions folder on Basic Gray card stock.

The two sheets of designer vellum that I used for these cards had 4 panels of each of these images on them so cutting them down into 3" x 3" pieces was very simple since these vellum sheets are
 6" x 6".

I again used some Whisper White card stock behind the vellum before adding it to my Night of Navy mats.

The sentiment comes from the Wishing You Well stamp set and are punched out with the Classic Label punch.

Stained Glass Thank You

When I sat down to color the Graceful Glass designer vellum sheets, I found my kids decided it looked like fun.  They actually helped me get them all colored and ready to cut up and use on some cards which was great!  

On this card, I added Whisper White card stock behind the vellum before adding it to a Basic
Black piece so that the colors popped a little bit.  Then I added it to a starry night background from the Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper collection and added some red satin ribbon.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Another Wonderful Year and is stamped in Night of Navy ink.

Harvest Blessings

Even though I used a retired stamp set on this card I thought it was appropriate for this time of year since where I live it is harvest time.  We actually start digging potatoes today...

The background that looks like worn wood is from the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper collection and I added some chicken wire elements to the top of it.  These are both in the Holiday catalog.  

The tractor and sentiment are both from the retired Harvest Blessings stamp set.

Another August Paper Pumpkin Alternative

As has been my habit, I have again put together a scrapbook page as an alternative idea for the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  

The base is Crumb Cake card stock and I have cut down one of the card bases and used it as an accent.  There are a few pieces of the Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper and some Galvanized metallic embossed with the corrugated dynamic impressions folder as well.

The final touch was a few metallic pearls and some accent pieces from the kit.

Sign up for this month's Paper Pumpkin kit right here.

August Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

The next couple days I will still be showing you August things, I just can't seem to catch up during harvest season!  The first two cards are alternative ideas for last month's Paper Pumpkin kit and the last photo is of the cards the way the kit was intended.

On the first alternative, I added a delicate doily and a punched out piece of Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper.  There wasn't too much done differently to change up either of the alternatives this time but I thought they turned out kind of fun.

The second alternative uses some Black foil that is embossed with the Tin Tile dynamic impressions folder.  The rest of the pieces are again from the kit.

You will no doubt see a lot of the Tin Tile dynamic impressions folder on my projects in the future, it is becoming a favorite quickly!

August Stamp Club Projects

Now that we are already into September, I guess I should probably share last month's Stamp Club projects with you!  

The layout uses lots and lots of stars that were punched out of Night of Navy, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White card stock and the Under the Mistletoe designer series paper.

Our first card uses the Healing Hugs stamp set and the Stitched Seasons framelits.  The background is embossed with the Tufted dynamic impressions folder and I added some Neutrals designer series paper to break up the background.

Our last project was a baby card using the Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper and Little Twinkle stamp set.  

We always have room for more to join our monthly Stamp Club or the Virtual Stamp Clubs - contact me for more information!
