Ladies' Night Out July Projects

I'm still trying to use up all of my "In-Color" card stock, ink and ribbons! Project #1 this Friday will be this Groovy Thank You card (Forgive the pun). The base card is Groovy Guava and it's stamped with the retiring "Weathered" background stamp using River Rock ink. The main image is stamped with Black Stazon on GP White and colored with Water Color Wonder Crayons. The matting is River Rock. A few extra leaves were stamped, colored, cut out, and adhered with quick dry adhesive. The spotlight frame is larger and thinner here than the one we will be using. This one is using 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" Square Punches. The one we will actually use will be using the 1" and 1-1/4" Square Punches.
  • Stamps: A Little Bit of Happiness (Level 1 Hostess set)
  • Papers: Groovy Guava, River Rock, GP White, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink: Black Stazon
  • Accessories: WCW Crayons, Aqua Painter, Square Punches, Snips, Groovy Guava DS Ribbon, Quick Dry Adhesive
I call Project #2 "Christmas in July"! I'm trying to use retiring stamp sets, but I don't want to duplicate the ones we will use for my "So Long, Farewell" Stamp Camp. I don't think I've ever used the Christmas tree from the "Year After Year" stamp set. The base card here is Purely Pomegranate with a layer of Wild Wasabi. The next layer is GP White that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. Before adhering the embossed layer, the Wild Wasabi Ribbon was added. The sentiment was added to the knot with a jump ring. The main image was matted on Pomegranate and Wasabi and mounted on foam dots. The tree in the foreground was also popped up. The star on that tree was colored with the Yoyo Yellow Marker and Silver Bead Duo seed beads were added with quick drying adhesive. It's fun to make Christmas cards in July!!
