Stamp Club - Sept 13

Here's what we made at Stamp Club on Friday.  Send me a quick note or comment if you want the details.

Gettin' My Mojo On

Once again, it has been WAY too long since I've stamped.  Lots of extra motivation this week though since I had to plan Stamp Club for last night.  I was excited to find this sketch at Mojo Monday :

A new pack of Birthday Basics designer paper, a few little stamps, ...and voila:

Thank You Pals Paper Arts

I woke up this morning to a wonderful surprise.  My super simple card (that I wasn't even sure would be uploaded to the PPA challenge in time) was a PPA Pick this week!

Thank you to Susan for picking my card and thank to all the other players for the ideas and inspiration.  I'm truly motivated to find more time for sneaky stampin'! 

If you're looking for some inspiration, hop on over to Pals Paper Arts on Thursday to see their next sketch challenge.

This sure was a quickie today!  The countdown is on and I have to get this uploaded in 6 mins! Pals Paper Arts sketch looks like this:
And once again, here's my take on it:

Can't see the paper piercing too well in the pic, but I thought it was just enough to balance out the flower.  Still trying to use up some old dp and brads from the last catalog.  Now, hope I submit it in time!

A Surprising Color Combo

I'm not one for orange.  But again, in an attempt to use up my Summer Smooches dp, I had several pieces of Tangerine Tango.  I hopped over to My Create, Ink. Colorlab to get some ideas of color combos and was surprised to see how much I liked Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi.  Here's what I created with this color combo:


Can you see the little "brads" in the top right corners? These are the new self-adhesive Candy Dots that come in each of the SU! Color Collections.  Here's one card up close:

Another easy addition to any card - just peel and stick!  I added a vase to these flowers by cutting the oval punch to just the right size.  But my favorite of this bunch is this one:

I love the amount of Pacific Point on this one, as well as the cute little ribbon tying the stems together.  This skinny satin ribbon was part of SU!'s Sale-A-Bration promotion earlier this year.  I just love it and hope it makes it's way into an upcoming catalog!

More Yellow and Blue

I don't know why I have such a hard time mass producing one card.  I could have easily done that for the washi tape card I made yesterday, but instead felt the need to mix it up a bit.  Not much, as you'll see.  One of my problems is that when I find something I really like (in this case the washi tape), I don't want to use it all at once.  I know, it's crazy!

I started with the same dp glued to the Whisper White card base but this time added 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight (color no longer available in current catalog).  I also decided to add a sentiment to these. 

Not bad.  But the washi tape card is still my favorite!
