First things first...just so you know, ANYONE can come and attend a Stampers Club date with me - you don't need to be a member (though you do need to RSVP). Your attendance is free with a $25 order that day, so check out the times, etc HERE if you want to come this week and play with us!
Because our monthly club dates in April fall after Easter, I thought it best to have the march projects follow that theme now :)
Our first project is a cutie-patootie little basket, made with the Scallop Square die. I got the idea off of Diana Ball-Seitz's blog, where you score and fold at every third scallop, snip and your basket is done!
Card #2 is an easy one to throw together, using the "Baskets & Blooms" die to create a basket of easter eggs, using the "Shades of Spring" DSP and the Wide oval punch.
If you look carefully, you can see I even texturized the basket with the weave pattern from plates kit #4...I love the subtle effect!
Our third card uses the specialty Bride paper, which has that lovely shimmer effect and looks beautiful when you either sponge or brayer with ink overtop. We used a three colour combo of Cameo Coral, So Saffron and Rose Red.
For more fun, we snipped the scallop circle shape to create petals, and then used Crystal Effects to add Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the large white brad for some extra bling :)
