June Stamp Club Projects

Are you ready for some fun projects?!  We made two cute cards and a neat box at stamp club last Saturday.  I'm going to go ahead and post the cards even though I have another hostess club this month that hasn't met yet. 



The first project is a technique called Bargello.  We had a great time working with the small strips of paper and cutting them and arranging them, and then embellishing the card. 


I used the Build-a-Bear Positively Prints II designer paper.  We cut 6" long strips in varing widths from 1/8" to 5/8" wide.  Adhere them to a piece of 6×6 paper. You can use copy paper that isn't very thick.  It will not show.  Then turn the piece of paper 90 degrees and cut the paper in 3/4" strips.  Place these on another piece of 4-1/4" x 5" piece of copy paper all going in the same direction but in various positions.  We then cut the paper with the top note die.  We placed it on a piece of Marina Mist cardstock that had been embossed and then embellished with flowers and sentiment.   




The second project is a fun, quick technique — stamping with a clear block.  When we started talking about this project, everyone told me that we already were stamping with a clear block.  BUT, we colored on the block with a marker and then stamped it – that was very different from sticking a stamp image to the clear block.  It gives a fun and different background.   The stamp is a single stamp in the Summer  Mini catalog called Sail Away.  I used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy on this card. 



Stay tuned for more cute projects.  I went to a stamping retreat over this past weekend and made lots of gorgeous things.  We made 24 cards, a great scrapbook, a bracelet, a travel journal and a frame.  I'll have pictures and information posted tomorrow. 


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope something you see here inspires you to stamp!
