October Stamp Night

Happy Boo to You!

I am trying something a little different this month for my stamp night. I am posting the projects that we are doing and then you can choose which items and how many you would like to do. I have tried to add a few holiday items in the mix, as well as some general items that you can use anytime. I hope that this gets you as excited about coming as I am for you to come.

In Colors

It is taking me some time to get used to the new in-colors in the current catalog. I decided to try a couple of cards that I have seen from other stampers.

This first card I loved as soon as I saw it and knew that I must CASE it from Michelle. To find the instructions please click here.

Stamps: Cute as a Bug
Paper: kiwi kiss bashful blue, so saffron, whisper white
kiwi kiss
Punches: scallop edge punch
Accessories: gingham ribbon from hobby lobby

The second card I have seen done several times but I really liked the way Tara did it on her blog. To get the instructions for this card you can click here. The technique used to make the hair is called frayed ribbon. You can find this tutorial here.

Stamps: Pick a Petal
Paper: baja breeze, whisper white, basic black
baja breeze, tangarine tango, basic black
Punches: 1/2" circle
Accessories: ribbon

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them. I think that they will be used many times.


Enrichment - Thanks You's

Wednesday was Enrichment Night in my ward. I am the new enrichment leader and was asked to make a thank you card and nugget box as a thank you for the speakers that we had come. Since all of the speakers were men I could not make anything to cutesy. I always find it harder to make things that will appeal to men. I do think that these did the trick. Please let me know if you like them.

Stamps: Seeing Spots, True Friend
Paper: chocolate chip, night of navy, very vanilla
Ink: chocolate chip, night of navy, more mustard
Accessories: ribbon, brad, sticky strip, address labels, nuggets
Techniques: sponging



I have created a survey that I would love for you to take to help me design better classes for you. If you could just spend less than 5 minutes and take this survey I would greatly appreciate it. I am trying to create classes that you are interested in and this will help me do it. All that you will have to do is click on the word survey at the bottom of this post to respond.

Bag in a Box

I have seen so many of these cute projects all over the blog sphere. I have wanted to try one for a very long time, here is my version. You can find the instructions to make these by clicking here. This was much easier to make than I thought it would be and will be a very versatile project that can be used for tone of things.

Here is a close up of the detail on the front. The circle that is behind the scallop punch is done by placing two round tab punches together. The scallop that is one the bottom was made using the slit punch.

Stamps: One of a Kind
Paper: certainly celery, bashful blue, whisper white, cutie pie DP
bashful blue
Punches: scallop edge circle, 1" circle, 1-1/4" circle, 1-3/8" circle, round tab, slit, boho blossoms
Accessories: ribbon, circle rhinestone brad, white gel pen
Techniques: punches, faux stitching
