This year I am working on my blog and blogging, more posts, more pictures, and even videos....While clearing some of the files, I found 10 blog posts!!!!, they were never posted. Some were about ribbon and DSP shares that I have going on all the time. If you want to be a part of them, or have questions about them give me a call, txt or email. I split the ribbons and card stock between 2 or 3 people only and the DSP only with 2 people. So let me know which ones you would like to participate in.
This post below is one of the Lost Blog Posts I found today, the others I deleted and then decided to use this one.
Here are the club cards for May.... I copied both cards from the Stampin' Connection. What's that? It is like facebook for Stampin' Up! demonstrators where we share everything stampin'. There are thousands of samples, videos, tips and more. Just one of the benefits of being a demonstrator, and with the Demonstrator Kit now only $99...and that is the price all the time!! You get a discount, ability to earn money and have fun stampin' and creating too.
I hold a Stampin' Club in my home every month, on the 3rd Friday evening and the 3rd Sunday afternoon, where I design 2 projects. This month with the approach of Father's Day, and Graduations, the first card, could be used for either of these Occasions as well as Birthdays and more.
The card uses the stamp set, Daring Adventure. It's in the elements section of the catalog, even the new catalog. I used all 4 stamps from the set, I used river rock for the card base and added a small strip of Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper, I embossed a piece of chocolate chip card stock using the houndstooth embossing folder and smeared vanilla ink on top of it. I stamped the words in chocolate chip and the footprints and the accent on the card in River rock, but stamped off before stamping each one for a softer look. I tied some always artichoke denim ribbon around the card at the point where the designer series paper is attached, so if I put it on crooked (which happens!!!) the ribbon hides that. I tied a simple knot, which I find is easier than tying a bow. I put 2 brads next to the greeting and adhered it to the card using dimensionals. If you wanted to use this card for a female and wanted to make it more feminine, just change the colors of the card stock, ink and designer series paper, ribbon and brads.
