Well tonight was supposed to be my March Stamp-A-Stack and I was all ready and waiting only to find out I had late cancellations. I had started to pack up but then thought “Why waste the kits. My girls can do a couple of cards each.”
They were so excited when I told them what we’d be doing. I decided to do one design with them tonight and one tomorrow night though as it would take too long and I wanted them to still go to bed at a reasonable time.
I actually do 2 Stamp-A-Stacks each month. One held in my home and the other at another ladies house. I’d be more than happy to do more if anyone is interested at either my house or yours if you have a group of 5 or more.
This month I made one set of cards the same for each group but the other set is different. I did this because one group wanted some boy cards where as the group at my house is a mother & daughter and I didn’t think they would want boy cards so I did a pretty card.
The design I’m doing at both is an Easter card seeing how that’s coming up at the end of the month. I went with the Chocolate Bunny stamp from the Summer Mini catalogue which ends on 31st March.
I’ve used a colour combination from the Colour Coach for this card and the layout is from page 16 of the current Idea Book & Catalogue.
Stamp sets: Chocolate Bunny, Occasional Greetings
Card: Almost Amethyst, Rose Red, So Saffron, Confetti White
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scallop Oval & Large Oval punches, Corner Rounder Punch, So Saffron 5/8” Grosgrain ribbon (previous promotional bundle), Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The second card which was planned for tonight was a card using the Priceless stamp set which I love but haven’t used in ages.
I love this colour combination of Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink & Old Olive. This is a variation on a card I made when this set first came out but with less cutting out and a simpler layout.
Stamp set: Priceless
Card: Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Paper Piercing template & tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the boys card I went with a card I made a while back using the Wild About You stamp set but revamped the colours.
On the Pacific Point cardstock I’ve stamped a ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the ‘On Your Birthday’ stamp set but you could also use the ‘Wild About You’ word stamp from the ‘Wild About You’ stamp set.
Stamp sets: Wild About You, On Your Birthday, Weathered
Card: Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink: Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point
Accessories: Paper Piercing template & tool, White Gel Pen, 1 3/8” & 1 1/4” Circle Punches, Pumpkin Pie 1/4” grosgrain ribbon, Mini Glue dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Till next time…..
