Was at a recent garage sale and picked up this stamp set - Window on the World - from StampinUP. This set will become a favorite of mine, I can already tell. I stamped the window and pumpkin, colored it in Copics and chalk and then cut the window out. Then I cut light tan paper and scored it at half inch intervals lengthwise. Then scored it randomly horizontally so that it appears that it is planks of wood. I sponged the whole front in light brown and then went back with a gold pen and put dots on each end of the planks, as you can see in the close up of the second photo. Stamped some flowers and taped the window on the planks. I think it turned out kinda neat and love this stamp and all the possibilities of what can be sitting in the window. Be prepared, there will be a lot more cards made with this stamp set!

Just love all the cards that we always make in our Stamp Club! Below are the cards that were made in October and November.

This card is made from a digital stamp that I have had for a while. It is colored with Copics, I think I like to color more than anything! There are many layers to this card, which I love to do also, especially when you can find papers instead of cardstock so the card is not so heavy. Has orange Stickles on the lily. Turned out to be a bright, cheery card!

Well a little late posting these, but can remember that it was a great card makin' day! Glad that we did a Christmas one, never to early to start making them. My designs were a little different than everyone else's, I had different needs than they did, so most of mine were thinking of you type cards. Always a fun time!

Aren't these cute! These are small plain white lunch bags that are decorated and have a flap to close them. There is also a ribbon on the back as a handle. The front and back of the bag is covered with the blue star paper and then the red is folded over the top, adhered in the back and Velcro is in the front. Happy Birthday was cut with my Cricut and the stars are made with punches. Here is another example:
The polka dot bag has a button on the front and once again Velcro is on the inside of the flap to seal it. The purple ribbon on the top is adhered on the back and is the handle for the bag.
The flowers are made from tissue paper!! Took a sheet of tissue paper and folded and folded it till it was about 6x6. Using my scalloped punch, punched thru all the layers, about 10-12, and put a brad in the center. Then scrunched up each layer around the brad - they turned out so pretty.
This bag has three different sizes of flowers on it. I only had one scalloped punch, the large one. I wanted different sizes of flowers, so punched out circles with my circle punches - two different sizes - and traced it onto the tissue paper. Then used my decorative scissors to cut around it so that it has a funky edge. I think they turned out great! I liked the flowers so much that I made a bunch of them for more projects. Thanks Jo (and Diane) for the idea of the flowers, love them!

crystal effects on the fishbowl so that it was shinny, like glass. The wording is computer generated and cut out with a Nestabilities label. Oh, and the pink background is from StampinUP embossing folder, Framed Tulips. I hope you are having a purrrrfect day!

More cards from our stamp club for July. They are always so nice. I like the red one because it is so different with the hole punched out and then the image was stamped inside. They were all stamped or embossed and then used pop dots to adhere them to the front of the cards.

A little late posting these cards, but once again a great time doing cards in June. Love them all! The yellow and black card will have a label on it once I figure out what I am going to use it for but all the rest are ready to go!

Was asked to make a special card for a friend as a thank you for a trip that they took. I love to create this type of card - it makes it so personal! They were in Arizona so a map of the state is the background on the front of the card and then I put the State Flag and the name of the place that they stayed. Turned out really neat, almost like a mini scrapbook page!

Sparkle N Sprinkle and is called Chianti. The background paper is already dotted and shows up with white dots in the picture, which gives it added dimension!
Love how this card turned out and I like to make dimensional type cards, they are always so interesting!

guy - always so hard to do when over half your stamps are flowers! So ended up with this. Simply put pale blue chalk and light tan chalk on the image and then used crystal effects on the watch face and glasses. It took longer for the crystal effects to dry than it did to make the whole card! I think it turned out nice and very manly!
