Here are the Stamp Club projects for June!
The watercoloring technique is really popular right now. I first saw this on Patty Bennett’s blog. She has an amazing video tutorial that can be found HERE. I love how each flower comes out so different than the next!

This card is a Tri-Shutter Card. There are many of these on Splitcoast. I’m not sure who originated the pattern, but I found a great tutorial for this card on The Craftiblog, which can be found HERE. Another fun card to use up those small scraps of DP!

Ink: Craft White, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Paper: Kraft 12×12, Parisian Breeze DP, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Accessories: Flower Daisies #2 Die Cut, Big Shot Machine, Scallop Oval, Build a Brad (Antique Brass), 1/4” Punch
12×12 cardstock is cut to 5 1/2 x 12. Score on the long side at 2″, 4″, 8″, and 10″.
Make a cut with an exacto knife 1 1/2” from the edge starting at the 2” scoreline and ending at the 10” scoreline. Do this on both sides.
Add decorative paper!!
The last project was showcasing the way to sponge a background. I first saw this card on Chat’s blog, which can be found HERE. (Warning, you’re going to fall in love with Chat’s blog!) All you do for the landscape is tear a scratch piece of paper and sponge close the edge. Then take a 2nd color, and move the piece of paper up a bit and at an angle, and sponge another layer. Then switch back to the original color and move the paper again.
