August Club Cards

For my Stamp Club this month I seemed to run out of time so I actually searched on blogs for card ideas! I did find some great cards and didn't even change them too much. Here are the cards we did and where I got the inspiration from!

I found this card on Splitcoast and just changed it a bit. I can not find the creators real name on there, but you can see her great card HERE! I got this Sweet Floral background stamp at Convention as a prize and could not think of a thing to do with it. Thank goodness for other blogs to get inspiration from!

This card is inspired by Nancy Ferb (almost copied exactly so I guess that's not really inspired by...). I love how she uses the new Grow stamp from Convention with the Just Believe stamp set! I did not have the new brads for the bottom so I just punched a piece of paper and used Crystal Effects on it.

And the last card idea I got from Karen Colburn. This one uses The Open Sea stamp set from the Summer Mini. I love the tearing of the two layers of DSP and so did all of my ladies!

Thanks for the great card ideas ladies so I didn't have to think too much!

Strength and Hope Hostess Gift

I thought I would share the little gift that I made for the hostess of my last party.
I used the Strength and Hope stamp set with Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Very Vanilla cardstock and ink. I made nine little 3"x3" cards with envelopes and put them in a decorated Fancy favor box. I put this in a cello bag and finished it with a ribbon!

Origami Kissing Card

I have been trying to come up with a fun way to use the S.W.A.K. stamp that I got as a prize at Convention. I was thinking to make an origami kissing card and I found this great video (below) on You Tube to make one. I thought the S.W.A.K. lips would be perfect to put on the envelope to seal it shut! The video is pretty good to follow as long as you pause after each step and then go on.
SO... I decided that I would make step by step printable directions for you guys! If you click on the images you should be able to download the printable pages. Or you can just click on the link below them to download!
You really have to make this card, especially if you have kids. It is so much fun to play with and make it talk. It is so realistic!

And I found out SWAK means Sealed With A Kiss.... Boy do I feel silly not figuring that one out on my own!
