Club card spoiler & Video Tutorial

My Stampers 10 club girls will be getting this card with their orders.  Since I am unable to stamp for them, they need to root through their stash of stamps to find a critter or a cute image that will create “the scene”.

For the 1st card I choose Pun Fun.  The little skunk is so cute in the grass.  The Video below shows how to create the clouds in the background and it covers the masking technique.  Since I can’t always teach all my club members in person I thought a video would be a perfect solutio!! Enjoy!

Sweet stems purse Class by mail

This is a “class by mail I offered this month to my customers. It features the new stamp set Sweet Stems and the new Raspberry Tart designer series paper.    The “Class by Mail” provided all the supplies needed to make the purse- all that was needed was ink, some basic tools, adhesive and 5 or 6 pictures.  Instructions and most measurements are included!  Ladies had the option to add the stamp set.

I cased this from JanTink.  You may remember last year she made a similar purse with Carousel Notes and the now retired Afternoon Tea paper.  A FABULOUS project.

a spin off

This was a spinn off of one of my swap cards for leadership.  You can see that card HERE

No color spritzing and less layers than the original.  simple.  I like this one too, but find the one with more layers a little more striking.
