July Club Projects

Sorry I've been so scarce on the blog lately! I've had a heavy work schedule to contend with lately and am finally getting around to catching my breath!

Here are the club projects we completed this month!

First, we altered this giant clothespin by covering it with the Newsprint DSP and distressing the edges with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink:

The tags were all made from the "Artistic Etchings" stamp set in the new IBC. We used the corner rounder punch to round the corners and set eyelets in each one with the Crop-a-dile. We threaded all of them on some 1/8" Basic Black taffeta ribbon and tied it through the inside of the clothespin. It makes a very lovely note or photo holder!

Our second project was a card we made using the "Because I Care" Level 1 hostess set. I also submitted this same card design in a recent swap I participated in:
The card featured two of the new in-colors: Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz. We used the exclusive Stampin' Up embossing folder: Elegant Bouquet and ran a piece of vellum card stock through the Big Shot. Then, we stamped the hydrangea and it's loose blooms in the un-embossed area. After giving it a few minutes to dry, we turned the vellum over and used markers and blender pens to color in the flowers and stem. We stamped a background on the Blushing Bride card stock before adhering the vellum on top of it. We used the new Smooch Illuminate Top Coat Accent Ink on the raised portion of the embossed image to finish off the card front.
