January Stamp Club

Happy Happy Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!  YAHOO - we made it through another week - HOT DAMN! It's now time to put your work shoes away and get your Stampin Groove going and let the party begin.  WELL......at the very least.....that is what this girl is going to do.  I have some serious plans to spend some QUALITY TIME in my studio with MYSELF.  Hope you are able to sneak off and do something that TOTALLY makes you smile this weekend.

Today I'm going to share what my Club Gals worked on last Saturday when they came over for Stamp Club.  Check these projects out ........
For Stamp Club we always make an A2 Card along with some type of 3-D project and a 3x3 card.  This month we incorporated our 3x3 card into our 3-D project and made them as a set.  Let me start out by sharing our 3-D project with you.
We embossed the Hello, Doily stamp onto Real Red cardstock - to both the front and the back of our box.  We added a small Rhinestone to the center of our stamped image to give a little bling to our box.
On the inside of our box we created these two adorable little 3x3 cards that tucked perfectly into our little box.  We used the Delicate Doilies stamp set and used clear embossing powder for the outer image and then stamped it a second time using white embossing powder and then punched out the center portion of our stamped image.  We added dimensionals to the white embossed portion to give some dimension to our little 3x3 card.
The clear embossing powder gave our Delicate Doilies image such a pretty shine and then by adding the white embossed image on top just created a whole new look for our stamped image.
We used the Decorative Label punch for the closure to the top of our little box.  And with the help of a Mini Library Clip and a tiny piece of 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon our box closure was complete.
 Our A2 card came straight from the Occasions Mini Catalog on Page 7.
We used the new Large Sizzlits Die for our A2 card.  Honestly........this die creates the most intricate doily design and help us to create the most amazing focal point for our card.
We die cut out the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and then used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to create a beautiful embossed image on our butterfly.
 And here's another close-up look at the Doily image that was die cut using the Large Sizzlits Die.
And one last look at all three of the projects!  All three projects turned out amazing and even though there were lots of steps and moments of tension with the embossing and folding of the box - all in all these projects turned out super cute and I think the gals had a good time at our first Stamp Club of 2012.

I'll be back tomorrow to begin sharing some of the cards that we made at Stamp Camp in January - Hope you can come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
