Merry and Bright

Merry and Bright by Andrea G71

Another November Stamp Club Card:
Once again I got ideas off Splitcoaststampers.  HERE is the card I CASED.  I jumped at the chance to get out the Paper Crimper which has been lying dormant for many years!!  I bought it when I first started as a Demonstrator with Stampin' Up and actually never used it in a workshop.  I like the look of a corrugated strip.  


Stamps:  Delicate Doilies, Merry & Type
Paper:  Poppy Parade, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink:  Old Olive, Markers:  Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Paper Crimper, Rhinestone, Chocolate Chip 1/2" Dotted Scalloped Ribbon, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Dazzling Details

Nice and quick card.   Need to make those sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by.

I used this Technique to tie the bow. I've used this same bow tying technique in a card found on THIS post.

I think the card is fairly self explanitory just by looking at the photo and the supply list.  If you have questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I will answer it either in this post or in the comment section.

Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage by Andrea G71 

Another card for the Stamp Club.....
 This card was inspired by THIS card on Splitcoaststampers.  Changed a few things but looks pretty much the same.  The one thing I love about this card is that instead of ribbon, a strip of designer fabric is used instead.  Ingenious!  


Crumb Cake:  A2 Card Base; Scrap for labe
Pool Party:  5-3/8 x 4-1/8
Soft Suede:  2-3/4 x 4
Very Vanilla: 2-5/8 x 3-7/8; scrap for circle

Punch Label and crumple to distress.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Stamp sentiment in Pool Party ink and punch out with circle punch.

Stamp Oak leaves on Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink.  Sponge edges with Pool Party ink and gently distress with edge distresser.

Distress and sponge edges of Soft Suede card stock.

Main Image:
Stamp "french script" with Soft Suede ink randomly over Very Vanilla card stock.
Randomly stamp "droplets" on same card stock.
Rub card stock with embossing buddy to get rid of static.  Stamp Oak Leaf with Versa Mark ink and sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. Heat.
Sponge randomly over leaf area with Soft Suede and Pool Party ink.
Distress edges and sponge with Soft Suede ink.

Adhere all pieces together and attach embellishments.
