It is SO LATE to be posting, but I am just so excited to share with you some pictures from our monthly weSTAMP meeting. If this looks like FUN to you, contact me and I will share how you, too, can be a part of this! It doesn’t matter if you are local or not, you can still be a part of our weSTAMP group and share ideas and projects!
Here is a picture of those who could attend this month. We always start with a make and take card.
This card was almost a TOTAL CASE of my sideline, CHAT. She is an incredibly talented stamper! Her origianal card is found HERE. I just changed the ribbon color. All the weSTAMPERS made this card tonight.
These next cards are the swaps that took place. I will write a brief description after each one.This first card was made by Anne. Oh how I wish you could see this card up close and personal! It is a TOTAL 3-D card, the butterflies about come off the card! The wings are folded back, and the oodles of flowers are all different dimensions. I don’t even want to figure out how long it took her to make all of these! I love how she used the corner punch, too. AWESOME SPRING CARD ANNE!
The next card was made by Linda. She did an envelope treat pouch. It looks hard, but she showed us how to use a punch to make this, and it is quite easy! She learned it on Splitcoaststampers.com I love the stamp set she chose (Blossoms Abound). Linda also did the 3-mn. demo and taught us how to make these really cool vellum starts that look like stain glass. She used that technique last month on her swap card, which can be found HERE. Great 3-D item, Linda!
Ginny is the creative mind behind this beautiful card. We all got our own PERSONALIZED card. She asked me the monogram of everyone in the group beforehand, and this is the result! The letters are embossed and the stamp set for the monogram is Lovely Letters Alphabet Set. I love how she incorporated the Porcelin Prints DP. Beautiful card Ginny!!
Jessica designed this CUTE baby card! Isn’t that the cutest little onesie you’ve ever seen? She painted that with watercolor. I am inspired to dig those out again, I don’t use those as much as I should! She used Berry Bliss paper for the pink/brown look that is so “IN” right now! Love the paper clip swirl….nice added touch to ribbon accessory. I also like how she did the duck tone on tone for the background on the pink. Thanks for a great swap card Jessica!
Here is the infamous Nancy Riley Card! She has an awesome blog found HERE. Watch out, you could spend HOURS on her blog! LOL Nancy and I do our weSTAMP meetings together. Here is her card for the spring swap. I love the look of the SAB So Many Scallops punch made into flowers, with the Garden Whimsy flower stems. The colors are in Groovy Guava and Rose Red. Nancy’s cards are always a gift in itself! Thanks for your inspiration Nancy!
This card was made by Pam, and isn’t it jus the cutest thing? She used Fun & Fast Notes, LOVE that set because you get EVERYTHING in that one! She added BLING to the flower with a silver rhinestone. There is so much detail in this card! What you can’t see is the bird is 3-D and the wing actually is bent forward a bit! Love the white floral background wheel that was used. Pam also has an awesome blog filled with creative projects HERE.
Leah is the designer of this card, which features the Designer Paper called CUTIE PIE! This is still my favorite paper pack in the catalog, LOVE the different color combos you can use with this set of paper. I also love that Leah used a PUNCH for the focal point! This will be a great card for a stamp class, very crisp and beautiful! It can be used for almost any occasion, so it is a very versatile card. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us Leah!!!
After talking with Adriana on the phone and hearing her idea for her swap card, I just had to get this stamp!! This stamp didn’t really stand out to me at first, but after seeing this card, it is a MUST HAVE. Isn’t this just gorgeous? I think her card is more beautiful than the one in the catalog!! WOW, can’t wait to CASE this one. She used Groovy Guava as the main color, and the stamp is the hostess set From the Garden.
This was the card I made for the swap. I fell in love with the one on SCS, which was posted HERE by Lauren Meader. I did this card in Soft Sky. The buttons were found at Joann’s.
Last but not least, the door prize was made by Anne. Wouldn’t this look great in a stamping room? LOVE the fun colors she used. If you look close, she used Stickles on the piece of ART! Some of the background paper lines are lines of Stickles! Great job Anne! You are an awesome stamper!Pam won beautiful framed art by name draw, so she will have to come up with next month’s door prize.
