Please link your project below (you may leave a comment as well, but be sure to link your project first!) and with random number interger i will pick a winner.... A $5.00 certificate for Stampin' Up! purchased through me!! And if you buy this stamp set, I will take the cost of shipping for this set (an added 10%) off your invoice as an added bonus :) Here is your inspiration for the month of November - use this as a sketch, or use a stamp set that you loved but didn't know what you could ever use it for (now is the time to try it! LOL) or as a color inspiration. I chose this stamp set mostly because of Julie! :) She wasn't sure what i could possibly come up with. Stamp set used: Ocean Commotion 114423 Price: $20.95 Winner will be chosen November 30th! Can't wait to see what you come up with :) -XOX-

Stampin' Up! Club :)

Hello! :) Yesterday was a great day! The club made two ultra great cards.... I took some pictures.... This morning I wanted to post them --- only to realize that I hadn't put the memory card back into the camera. so, no pictures! I feel terrible - or terribly stupid! LOL Here are the samples I made so at least you can have an idea of what we did yesterday :) We learned how to make the cloud backgrounds, use the sweet centers (which I LOVE), using ink pads to color in an image, and a recessed window card (just for you Tina! LOL). We also used the markers onto our stamps to have a multi colored stamped image...
If you would like more information on joining a stampin' club of your own, please email me! vanilla_232@hotmail.com.
Until next time!

Groupe d'estompage - Stampin' Club

Nous nous sommes rencontrées samedi... J'ai offert un petit sac de friandises et des coupons ainsi qu'une carte fidélité - une carte offerte à toutes clientes et qui vous offres des estampes gratuites! Nous avons travaillé avec quelques techniques, dont un fond à l'éponge et ressistance embossage à chaud. Nous avons commencé avec un fond blanc et avons repreduit le devant du sac. We met up on Saturday... I offered a little goodie bag, coupons and a loyalty card - a card I'm offering to all customers which can earn you free stamps! We worked on several techniques, including emboss resist and sponging a background. We started with whisper white cardstock and reproduced the front of the bag. Hope you enjoy!
