Another stamp club project pic
Well, the recent snow caused me to have to postpone my Tuesday stamp club meeting....I know that some of my stampers would rent a snowplow to get them here if they thought it would help but with the weather forecast predicting 6 to 10 inches of snow and the snowflakes still coming down hard in mid afternoon, I made the tough decision of postponing our meeting until the March 11th. Really a bummer since my youngest son, Adam and I had already shoveled off the driveway and sidewalk. I think we will need to get a snowblower once he graduates high school this spring and goes off to college!
My Sunday stamp club gals stamped on a clear sunny day with the temps reaching almost 70 degrees and 2 days later? Snow!!! Crazy weather! I have no room to complain....one of my friends in Wisconsin was excited when they predicted things would "warm up" to 30 degrees!
So, now that the snow is melting I will share a photo of our other stamp club project. This one uses the new Sticky Cut alphabet letters from SU, many people are attaching beads or chunky glitter with these but I went with the clear Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The "i" for the word "hi" was made by cutting a strip of cardstock at a similar height to the "h" and I dotted the "i" with the 1/2" circle punch and a piece of Cutie Pie designer paper to coordinate with the paper strip on the fold over cuff. This projects used the textured Wild Wasabi cardstock which is on special until the end of April and comes precut and prescored! I love textured cardstock, it's so....well, textured!!! One version of this card has a happy birthday greeting on the pull out card (Birthday Whimsy, Stampin' UP! SAB set) while the other one uses a Happy Mother's Day greeting (Hugs and Wishes) with a Thinking of You stamp from For a Friend, Level 1 HS. That way everyone could pick whatever type of card they wanted to make.
Let me know what you think of the cards, I always love to hear your opinions! Jan
