February Stamp Club

We had our February Creative Images meeting on Monday night.  Out of nine ladies present, only one didn’t bring in an exchange card.  She had a good excuse, but still, she had to pay a quarter!  Our exchange card theme for February was monochromatic cards.  We re-elected Jeannie and I as co-presidents and Tange as secretary and elected Linda as our new treasurer.  After business was over, we exchanged our  cards and started on name tags.  We’ll bring the finished ones to club next month and I’ll take pics then.  Here’s our exchange cards.  As always, you can click on a card to see details.

Ursula’s colors for her cute bee get well card were grey/blue, with a vellum overlay, ribbon and a little bee bellie.

Connie did her Valentine in reds and pinks with lots of dimension and bling.

Connie's Love

Ella made this mauve/lavender card.  I called it a flip flop card.  Ella said that wasn’t what she thought it was, but she agreed they sure look like flip flops!

Holly made this mostly yellow Joy card.  One of her layers was crimped on the diagonal for interest.

Jeannie made this lovely Paris collage from mostly burgundies.

This is my mostly green card, using the hat and herbs from Garden from the Heart.  Colored the bonnet with markers and fussy cut it out.

Kathy's Bonnet

Linda’s pastel dragonflies were embossed and glittered over a rainbow she made with a mask as she laid down each row of color.

Therese did this lovely aqua By the Sea card, stamping the images twice and cutting out half the aqua image before mounting on base image with up stuff.

Helen’s Workshop

Helen hosted a Sale-a-Bration workshop last Saturday and I promised to post pics of my samples and the make and takes we made. A great time was had and Helen earned lots of free stamps. Met some new people and lots of old friends. So, here goes.

First, this valentine using the Sweet Centers and some of the new DSP Sending Love. Also used the wide oval and scalloped oval punches and the Elegant Bouquet Embossing folder.

Sweet Heart 1

This is my mirrored Chocolate Bunny sample, given away as a door prize. Computer generated the sayings to punch out with Word Window and mount on Modern Labels.

Chocolate Bunny 2

This was one of our make and takes using the Chocolate Bunny, the wide oval and scalloped oval punches, the greeting out of Very Vanilla, Well Scripted, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue cardstocks.

Cholate Bunny 1

This is my sample from Garden From the Heart, colored with markers to match the Green Galore, Gable Green, YoYo Yellow and Very Vanilla cardstocks. Fussy cut the bonnet. Used the wide oval and scalloped oval punches again with Thanks from Sincere Salutations. Double edged layers with Eyelet Border punch.

Garden from the Heart 1

This is a simple sample using fussy cut My Matryoshka nesting dolls, Pale Plum and Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Colored the dolls with my markers and watercolor pencils. Congratulations is from Well Scripted. Inside it says “We knew you had it in you.” Ticket Corner punch finished it off nicely.

My Matryoshka 1

This is another sample using My Matryoshka on a leftover bit of Real Red cut with the Top Note die. Happy Birthday is from Well Scripted.

My Matryoshka 2

Brought this to workshop for non-members of my stamp club (non-SU) who hadn’t seen or made it at January meeting. Gave it away as a door prize. Details to make it are in January post.

Something Sweet 3

This is almost our second make and take. Final version had a Pretty in Pink wreath made with scalloped circle and 1 3/8” circle punches instead of what is shown here. Make and take also was done as a gate fold, with opening under the heart.

Added on 2-11-10: This is Helen's hostess gift! Used Sending Love DSP to cover one of Target's $1 mailboxes, then put some pretties on it. Stuffed that cutie with pastel Kisses! She loved it!

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome.
