Here are more of the spectacular projects shared at our February meeting! Enjoy!
Here's a terrific alternative flower you can create with the Blossom Petals Punch—Calla Lilies! You can see a tutorial on making these lovely flowers at Stamper Dog's blog: Calla Lilies. Thanks for sharing this cool idea, Carmen!
Jodi Geers used one of my favorite sets, Aviary, to create this "i miss you" card!
I love the way this card opens! Jodi used a gate fold with overlapping squares. All of the images are from the Sweet Summer Sale-A-Bration set—earn this for FREE with your $50 order! The simple style is nicely accented with Basic Rhinestones.
Michelle Hoover did a great job on this card featuring the Build A Cupcake Punch. Notice how she used the Crimper texture to mimic the cupcake wrapper! And, I love that she added a Polka Dot Impressions Folder texture to the "frosting," then lightly sponged White Craft Ink just on the dots—nice sprinkles!
Michelle did three cards with the cute little girl from the Greeting Card Kids set. Aren't they adorable and retro…kinda like the Campbell Soup Kids?! And, you'll find a cute kid for several different occasions in the set!
This first one features the little girl colored with markers and uses the Love Letter DSP, a Dotted Scallop Punch border, and scrunchy Real Red Striped Grosgrain ribbon. Oooh! I love how the wide ribbon looks scrunched! You can pull a middle thread to scrunch this type of ribbon, too, and Michelle assures me that it's much easier to do on this than the Satin Ribbon.
Michelle's second Greeting Card Kids card uses Watercolor Crayons for the coloring of the little girl.
Michelle's third card uses Poppy Parade for a monochromatic look! I love all the details on this card! The Eyelet Border ruffle is very eye-catching (learn how to make one in this post). Plus, the Vintage Wallpaper embossed Vellum creates a pretty background. Even the punched layers really set off the sentiment.
Demo Team Make & Takes
Each month at our Demo Team Meeting, attendees do at least one Make & Take item! This month, We created a Too Cool Windowpane Necklace (inspired by Patty Bennett's Monogram Necklace). Check out the sample Monogram Necklace that I created.
This is the necklace that Jodi created at our meeting using the birds from the Clearly For You stamp set. I love, love, love that set because it's the perfect size for Windowpanes! Very nicely done, Jodi!
We have SO MUCH FUN at our team meetings! I love seeing everyone's projects, learning fun new tips, and trying out exciting techniques!
Oftentimes, we have WAY too much to share and before you know it, we've been stamping and chatting for hours! Each and every time I come away from these meetings so motivated and inspired! It really gives my creativity a boost!
But, my favorite part is having the opportunity to hang out with a FANTASTIC group of stamping enthusiasts! These ladies are awesome! Nothing beats stamping with others who are just as passionate about the products and the projects as you are! It's a Too Cool experience!
Want to see what it's all about? If you're in the Fort Wayne, IN, area, contact me about being a guest at our next meeting on March 14—I'd love to have you there!
