Hardin County Public Library Projects

I teach a class at our local public library once a month.  Below are the projects we made this month.

HCPL October 2015.b

The card is cute but simple.  It’s hard to see, but the black is embossed with the Lucky Stars TIEF.  The moon is punched from Crushed Curry, and sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink.  The “BOO” and black glimmer paper are punched with circle punches, and the bat is “fussy cut”, and has rhinestone eyes.

The treat bag is a small “sour cream” container, made with 1/8 sheet of Old Olive CS.  You curl it and tape the short ends together to make a cylinder.  Then one end gets pinched in one direction and stapled.  Fill the bag with treats, and pinch the other end perpendicular to the first.  Staple or punch a hole and tie a tag, and you’re all set!

I hope you enjoy these projects!  If you need any of these supplies, I would love it if you visited my website to place an order!

Thanks for looking!  Until next time…….stay inky, my friends!

 

September Stamp Club

Have you ever heard of a Stamp Club?  It’s where six people commit to spending a certain amount of money on Stampin’ Up! each month for six months, and they take turns receiving the FREE host benefits each month.

My clubs are currently meeting during the second week of the month.  I have four sessions of the same projects, so members pick the one that fits their schedule.

Want to see what Stamp Club projects look like?  Well, here ya go!

The first card was inspired by a card from the fabulous Michele Zindorf!  I didn’t have her tutorial, so I had to figure out the steps, but I think it turned out well.  It uses the new Among the Branches stamp set and Woodland TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder).  You can purchase these as a bundle and save 15%!!  The greeting is from the Cheer All Year stamp set.  We made this card using the brayer.  Ink colors: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, and Tuxedo Black.  CS (cardstock):  Whisper White, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie.   Members of my Stamp Club will be getting the recipe for this card as one of their club perks!

The second card was designed by me.  It uses the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set and Boo to You Framelits.  You can also purchase these as a bundle to save 15%.  I’m loving the bundles!!  The Boo is from the Cheer All Year stamp set.  Ink colors:  Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie.  CS:  Old Olive, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant.  It’s hard to see, but we also used the new black glimmer paper for the circle behind BOO, and the star on the wand.  We also used the new Spider Web doily.  I just love these!  And, they come 24 in a package for only $4.50.

The idea for the last project has been around for a while.  It’s a “sour cream container” treat bag, and uses the A Little Something stamp set.   Ink color:  Basic Black Archival Ink.  CS:  Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White.  Trick or Treat is colored with the Pumpkin Pie marker, and it’s tied up with Basic Black bakers twine.

Until next time…..stay inky, my friends!

More WTU Cards

As promised, I’m showing you more of the cards that were donated to the Warrior Transition Unit at Fort Knox for the soldiers to send to their friends and families.

These were donated by Pat.  Her sister, Nancy, and a friend also helped with these beautiful cards.

The next cards were donated by Cathy.  Who would have thought to put maple seeds, aka whirligigs, on a card?
