These are the projects that I came up with for Stamp Club this month... But before we move along, this disclaimer... these cards will have the Linen background, and look oh-so-much-hotter. I decided that just now... indulge me. :)
I am totally into the scratch-n-sniff cards, but I didn't want to have too many steps for the Club ladies. SOOO, when I make this card for my own use, it smells like - are you ready? - oranges. So cool. Anyhoo, I used Tart & Tangy and the Summer Picnic DSP from the Occasions mini! (extended until May 31st!!) and Enjoy Every Moment from the Spring/Summer '08 catalog. Additionally, I used Real Red & Pumpkin Pie CS and classic inks, and the So Saffron marker on the orange slice, the slot punch and wide red grosgrain ribbon. The word window punch shows the sentiment, if you look reaaaaally closely. (NO, Vamp, I have not gotten an Ott yet! lol)
Project #2 is the "One of a Western Kind Sky Star" card... yes, Western Sky DSP, One of a Kind stamp set, and a chipboard star. You are impressed with the original titling tonight, aren't you? :) I used Bayou Blue for the base and ink impressions, and the Boho Blossoms punch to make the flowers that are layered onto the star. I also used the Designer Tag punch and layered a 1 3/8" circle I punched from the same paper I covered the star with. The ribbon is River Rock double-stitched, and the white gel pen dotted around the edges. Again - remember this has a background stamp on it! :) Maybe I'd even used Sanded - I love that one!!
You must know by now that I love simple. I am learning (sloooowly) to NOT be the Queen of TooMuch. I was the Monarch there for-evah!! I do, however, constantly find myself wondering what Vamp's take on it would be. She is so good at dressing cards up. She's just SOGOOD!
Gotta run for now - Spawn needs to retire for the evening. And it is te night of nights: Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and LOST. OMG - my head might explode from giddiness... :)
