Here are the Stampers Club projects for September.. we're been having fun :)
This first card uses "Pick-A-Petal" (which is also my featured stamp set of the month) in an neat out-of-the-box kind of way. I CASE'd this unique idea from a convention swap from talented Kathy Hilden of Shelby Twp, MI, who had in turn credited "butternutsage" of SCS for HER inspiration as well. Ah... we stampers do so love to share. My contribution to making this card my own was using snippets of the Scallop punch as "tufts" of hair :P
Next are the little boxes using a chipboard centre, the "Circle of Friendship" set, the new "Apple Cider" designer paper from the Holiday mini catalogue, plus a Wild Wasabi crimped handle (held in place with Vintage brads).
Last but not least are the jumbo clip bookmarks, or you can even add magnets to the back so you can stick your noteholder up on the fridge (to keep hold of coupons, etc). Everyone has a choice to make theirs from either "Bodacious Bouquet" or else "Office Accoutrements" and we added a fun Rhinestone brad to the centre, just for a little bling. Those "Canadians, INK!" gals on my team might recognize these as similar to the ones we made at our recent Quarterly Demo Stamp Camp.
Club meetings are tons of fun, and a great way to get out monthly to do some stamping and play with new techniques and accessories! If you’re reading this and you live in Toronto, ON or surrounding areas (Mississauga, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Markham, Richmond Hill, etc.) and want to see what Stampers Club is all about, give me a call or visit my Club Info page. First-time guests are always FREE!
