October Stamping Club

I had my fun NEW products to use at our Happy Stampers Stamping Club this month (see previous post). And I was sooo excited to find a wonderful new blog that shows videos on how to use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool for lots of fun projects. You can make the same things without the Simply Scored Scoring Tool but it is a lot more work...and who likes work?!!! Sooo, if you recently purchased the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and want some fun new projects to try it out on, check out what Connie Stewart is doing at Simply Simple Stamping. The Clear Mount Blocks worked like a dream. The Rock & Roll method we used on the Thanksgiving card would have stained the wood on a wood mount stamp but the Clear Mount Blocks washed up--quick and easy!!!

I have been wanting to make this card for some time! The idea came from Lorri Heiling at Confessions of a Stamping Addict. This link will take you right to the video tutorial for the Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder. Lorri has lots of great ideas so check out her blog.

Card Stock used: Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White and Peach Parfait. Also used Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso Classic Ink, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, S.W.A.K. stamp, Decorative Label Punch--all Stampin' Up! plus 1/4" brown satin ribbon from who knows where! The inside of the card, right, is perfect for attaching a gift card or you could attach a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp or print your sentiment. Thanks Lorri and thanks to Roxy for putting the card on her blog with a link to Lorri's:)

With Thanksgiving coming up, it seemed appropriate to do a Thanksgiving card, right? The stamp set for this card was in the Holiday Mini catalog LAST year and I wanted it sooo bad but ya just can't buy everything! But, SURPRISE!!! it showed up in the new Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog that debuted in July. The set is called Day of Gratitude and I know I will use it for more than just Thanksgiving! This is the card we did the Rock & Roll method on and I couldn't believe how easy it is! The picture makes it look like there is a third layer of the Decorative Label Punch but it is just a shadow. However, after seeing the picture, I just might add an Early Espresso layer.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.
Card Stock used: More Mustard, Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Whisper White
Classic Ink colors used: More Mustard, Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso
Also used: Decorative Label Punch and Fiskars Decorative scissors.
We can thank Megan Daves at I Teach Stamping for this card. The link will take you right to the video tutorial.

I am planning THREE projects for next month--there is just so much I want to share!!! We will be using the Snow Swirled stamp set for one project; the Come to Bethlehem stamp set for a second project and for the third project we will be using the Hand-Penned Holidays stamp set along with the Snow Burst Embossing Folder, Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper and Mini Jingle Bells. All the supplies for the third project are from the Christmas Mini Catalog. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day and a wonderful week! Kat
