March Stamp Club

photo deleted

This is the page we made at club last night. I'm not in love with it (in fact, I hate it), but it's what I came up with in a half hour the night before. We used all Sale-a-Bration items: the Polka Dot Punches stamp set, plus the Certainly Celery ribbon from the ribbon bundle. The card stock colors are So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand and Whisper White. I used the Scallop Circle die for the Big Shot to cut out the blue journaling piece. The flowers are punched out with the five petal punch, which works perfectly with this stamp set! The card we made is just a So Saffron version of the cards in the previous post, so I didn't post the picture. If I remember to take one, I'll post it later!

One layout, many cards

Here are several cards I've made, all using the same basic layout. I think I might have gotten the layout idea from splitcoast, but I have no idea. I'm so bad about that! I promise to get better and give credit where it's due! Some of the cards below do use retired paper...so sorry about that! But as you can see, this is a very versatile card and you can pretty much use whatever color and paper combination you like! Each of these was made with the Best Wishes & More stamp set, and the center flower on each card is popped out a bit by using Stampin' Dimentionals. Sorry the pictures are so bad!

This card uses Summer Picnic DSP which retired with the last catalog. The colors are Old Olive, Bashful Blue and Real Red.

This one uses Pacific Point, one of the current In Colors. I love this blue! I've also added Old Olive, Chocolate Chip (of course!) and So Saffron.

I wanted something springy for a workshop, but didn't have any DSP that was really grabbing me. So instead, I cut a piece of Apricot Appeal card stock, then stamped the splatter image from Itty Bitty Backgrounds with Apricot Appeal and Cameo Coral. I also used Sage Shadow on this card, then added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for fun.

And last, but not least, is a cute card made using all Sale-a-Bration goodies! The paper is Delicate Dots DSP, combined with the Polka Dot Punches stamp set. I also used the Certainly Celery ribbon from the ribbon bundle in the SAB brochure. I also dabbed a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the center. Colors are Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Very Vanilla.
