Technique Hostess Club Projects

Good evening Stampers!

Sorry for the delay in posts but I haven't had the strength or energy to post or stamp for the past week. I had been out sick with Tonsillitis since Sunday of last week! I am finally feeling better, don't have all my energy back yet but I'm definitely feeling better...

Today, I'll be sharing some projects that we made last month at my upline Yolie's, house for her Technique Hostess Club. These projects were so quick and easy to make, my favorite kind!

This card showcases the brand new Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack and the coordinating Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flowers, which I love! These flowers add such a nice touch to your cards and you get 52 pieces in a pack for only $7.95! You can't beat that!! Let me apologize for the odd colors in the pictures. I didn't realize that they were so off. As soon as I can, I will re-take the pictures and re-post them. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Well Scripted set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The card base is actually Old Olive, though in the picture it looks like Always Artichoke. A piece of the Sweet Pea DSP was layered on a piece of So Saffron which is found in the stripes of the DSP.

Here is a close-up of the Pretty in Pink Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flower and it was attached to the Whisper White Square using Mini Glue Dots. The scallop border around the square piece of Whisper White was made using the Scallop Trim Corner Punch from the Occasions Mini and the Scallop Trim Border Punch, which you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration! In case you want to make this scallop frame square piece, your paper needs to measure 2-7/8".

This next card was quick and easy, and I love the look of it! The card base is Chocolate Chip Cardstock, with a stip of Rose Red. The colors here, also play off of the strip of Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper.

Here is a close-up of the details on the card. As you can see, the bottom half of the card is a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that was embossed using the NEW Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, from the Occasions Mini. The medallion is an image from the Vintage Labels set, that is FREE during SAB. It was stamped in Rose Red ink onto Pretty In Pink Cardstock and then punched out using the Scallop Circle Punch and the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. The image behind the medallion is stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched out using the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. The "For You" sentiment is also from the Vintage Labels set and was stamped in Rose Red ink. Lastly, the ribbon is the NEW Pretty In Pink 5/8" Satin Ribbon from the Occasions Mini (have you noticed a theme yet?). ;o)

And finally, the last card! Don't you just love the flower? I thought it was going to be complicated to make, but boy was I wrong. The cardbase here is Kraft Cardstock, and there is a piece of So Saffron adhered to the inside bottom of the card. The bottom of the cardbase is punched with the Scallop Border Punch and then pierced with the Paper Piercer. The stem is made out of a piece of Always Artichoke Cardstock and then tie a piece of Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon for the "leaves". The "Friend to Friend" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. .

This is a close-up of the flower. So, does it look hard to do? Well, trust me, it was easy peasy lemon squeezy! It is made using four flowers punched out of Elegant Eggplant Cardstock using the Five Petal Punch! You just layer three of the flowers, curling the petals up with your bone folder first and then the last flower you fold the petals in and adhere it closed using glue dots. You attach this to the center of the flower and then add a So Saffron button to the middle of it using Mini Glue Dots. Voila, you have a flower! :o)
