Tuesday Nighters August Projects

Project #1 for this Tuesday's Club will be this card that I CASEd from a Wow Swap card I got at convention. The lady's screen name was happystamper09, but I couldn't find a gallery for her to link to. This is using a new Level 3 Hostess Set, and I thought it was so clever to make siding behind the window! This card will take some time because you have to get that siding spaced apart equally. I've already stamped the shutters, but my ladies will stamp the window and use the Stamp-a-majig to line up whatever stamps they want to use in those windows. They don't have to stamp the cat, water color it, cut it out, and pop it up like I did. The original card had the vases with flowers in the lower window, and the birdie was stamped directly on the lower right of the bottom siding panel. They will have a choice of sentiments, and they can make their cards for fall with pumpkins, Christmas with snowmen, or just general with the vases and flowers. Since this card is so involved, I made the next project a bit easier!
  • Stamps: Window Dressing
  • Papers: Naturals White, Sahara Sand, GP White, Baha Breeze
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Baha Breeze, Not Quite Navy
  • Accessories: Snips, Dimesionals, WCW Crayons, Aqua Painter, Stamp-a-majig, Caramel Gingham Ribbon
Project #2 is a non-card item by request! Since all the ladies in this club work at the same elementary school (mostly teachers), I thought it would be fun to make a kind of teacher appreciation gift for themselves! This bookmark is made with a jumbo paper clip. I colored the stamp with markers, stamped on white, and punched with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. I matted that on a scrap of Always Artichoke that was punched with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Then, I punched Real Red with the Scallop Circle Punch. After putting it all together, I did the same thing again for the other side. I put two Dimensionals (on top of each other) in the center plus Sticky Strip to adhere to the paper clip. I added red Gingham Ribbon as a final touch.
  • Stamps: Tart & Tangy
  • Papers: Real Red, Always Artichoke, GP White
  • Ink: Real Red and Garden Green Markers
  • Accessories: Jumbo Paper Clip, 1-1/4", 1-3/8", and Scallop Circle Punches, Red Gingham Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today!
