November Contest part 2

This is the card that Anna made for this month's club contest.  The only rules I have for the contest are to use the supplies I provide and any other Stampin' Up! products they may have at home.  At first I thought Anna didn't use the More Mustard card stock I provided, until I opened the card and saw that she used it on the inside.  Very clever, and a  really cute Christmas card.

Come back tomorrow to see the last two contest entries and to find out who is this month's winner!

November Club Contest

Each month I have a contest for my stamp club members.  It is a way to keep them stamping between our monthly meetings and I always enjoy seeing their creativity in using the supplies I give them.  This time they had a Crumb Cake card base and scraps of Old Olive, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock.  This is the card that Linda H. made.  Love it!

This is the card that Connie made.  I love all the details she used in making this card.  Very creative!

November Club Project 3

 This was a SWAP card that I received at a Stampin' Up! demonstrator meeting last month and the inspiration for the second card we made at my club meetings this month.

I changed it a little bit by using a different stamp/coordinating framelit and a greeting from the Word Play stamp set.  This card uses the new Core'dinations Card Stock from the 2012 Holiday Catalog.  After we embossed the card stock using the Big Shot, we used Stampin' Up!'s sanding system to give it the distressed look.

November Club Project 2

This is a card that I received at the Stampin' Up! convention this summer.  It was made by my up line, Martha Armstrong, and everyone who sees it wants to know how it was made.  So after a team meeting last month where she explained how she made it, I gave it a try. 

This was the result!  I made my card much simpler, so it would be easy to complete at a club meeting.  It was a fun technique and everyone's card turned out beautifully!  We cut a stencil using one of the labels framelets, and sponged on the color using several colors of ink.  Then we stamped the solid image using Stazon ink.

November Club Project 1

This was the "3D" project we made at my club meetings in November.  It is a little gift box made with the Fancy Favor Die.  We made these using fall colors, but if you used Christmas colors, they would make a great way to package a small gift this holiday season.  They would also be great for party favors.

Sweet Technique

This card was made using a really "sweet" technique created and demonstrated by Liz Haddon at a meeting I went to the last month with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  It may be hard to see from my photo, but the candy canes are shiny and the white area behind the candy canes is sparkling with glitter.  She came up with  a really clever technique that I can't wait to show my Stamp Club members.  CONTACT ME NOW If you would like to join in the fun and stamp with me!

Triple Time Stamping

This  is a card I made when I got together with some other Stampin' Up! demonstrators the other weekend.  The technique is really easy, with WOW results.  After making this card, I finally broke down and bought the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and coordinating Framelits Dies.  They are both found in the Holidy Catalog and will be available through January 2, 2013.  Contact me now if you would like to learn how to make this card, or if you need more information about Stampin' Up!  CLICK HERE if you would like to see my upcoming events or if you would like to place an order.

Candlelight Christmas

This was one of the "Make & Takes" that I made at a recent meeting with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  It uses the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (#126901- $12.95) that you can find in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  This DSP is so much prettier in real life!  The stamped greeting is from the "Delightful Dozen" stamp set found on p. 140 of the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Santa Tag

This is a cute little tag I made when I got together with some other Stampin' Up! demonstrators last weekend.  It is made using one of the the new ornament framelits.  There are a lot of details - but it would make a nice gift tag for someone special on Santa's "nice" list.
