Changing it up #2- Club style

Each month members of my Stamper’s 10 clubs gets a card to make in their packages.  I can’t stamp images for them so I decided I would show how to take the exact same components and make 2 very different cards.

Here is the Original design of my December club card:  

I took out Pocket silhouettes and made this card with all the exact same components.  I did not paper piece the birds, instead I turned the card horizontally and trimmed the designer paper as a layer and stamped on it.   I left off the button and decided it was best suited for another card.  

For this version I skipped the paper piecing the birds, and layered with the designer paper scrap. 

So what do you think?  I like all the versions!


Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Thank You kindly, Love you much (original design)

Paper:  Riding Hood red, whisper white, chocolate chip, baja blue card stock and designer paper

A Friendship Box

I made this for a co-worker who was having a really tough week.  She loved it and so did I- it was so hard to give this beauty away!  These scallop envelope boxes are super easy to make and have a really nice WOW factor.

Pocket Silhouettes swap card

I am participating in a swap group with a few other Demonstrators. Twila and Becky have blogs and are in the swap group but I am not sure about the details of the other ladies. I will add them later if they have blogs. This was last months card submission, anything from the new Fall Winter Idea book & Catalog. I chose Pocket Silhouettes.

To get the green background, I used a technique called reverse masking. I took a piece of scrap copy paper and punched 4 square scallops from the new SU square scallop punch. I overlapped the corners so the scallops would be even in the middle. I sponged through the mask with Kiwi kiss ink. Then I stamped the images over it with Chocolate chip ink.

I just finished this month card- I’ll share that this week.

ETA:  I used a 4×4 pice of paper for the mask.  Any size scrap paper will do as long as you can punch 4 squares from the scallop square punch and overlap the corners when you are punching.
