August Stamp Club - Card Pojects

Happy Monday my Blogger Friends and today I will be sharing the cards we created at our August Stamp Club..........
My August hostess was Carol and she wanted me to use the Delicate Doilies stamp set to give her some ideas on how to use this set.  SO...we started out the whole shabby chic Stamp Club with the Fliratious Specialty DSP and used one of the doily laser-cut designs for the base of our card.
We used the white side of the doily laser-cut and stacked it with layers of circles and the Boho Blossom punch and topped it all off with a Glimmer Brad right in the center of our creation.
We wrapped a piece of linen thread around the largest circle and stamped a "thanks so much" message from the Tiny Tags stamp set onto a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock.  We then punched this sentiment out using the jewelry tag punch and securing it onto the linen thread.
The lace border was created using the Eyelet Border punch.  We used Tangerine Tango cardstock and trimmed it perfectly to create a lace border for each side of our card.
Our last card was inspired by Lisa Young at http://addinkandstamp.blogspot.com/
Lisa created this card using so many different SU products......and the one that was perfect for Carol's Stamp Club month was the use of the Delicate Doilies stamp set.  Here is a picture of the Butterfly punch that has been stamped with one of the Delicate Doilie stamps as a background for the wings. 
And with the help of several circle punches and the Doily Triple Layer punch this card came together with very little effort.
The base of our card was run through the Big Shot using the "Framed Tulips" Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then we layered another piece of Whisper White cardstock that fits perfectly into the center of our embossed frame.  We used the "Petite Pairs" stamp set to create the perfect message for our adorable card.  LOVE LOVE LOVE how this little number turned out.  Can you image how fabulous this card will look in  the birthday girl/boys favorite colors....STUNNING!

Thanks for joining me today - I'm heading off to Wisconsin tomorrow morning for a little QUALITY TIME with my kids and favorite little people in the world (Jared.....Hailey....Brooke and Steven).  I'll try to not go missing in action - but if I do......Know that I'm totally enjoying myself.  Keep Living Your Dream!
