Creation & Relaxation

Here is a project I did with some friends after work last week. It is a note pad portfolio made with a 5 X 8 legal pad and card stock. It turned out really cute and some people made them as gifts. We used the owl punch and the Seasons of Friendship stamp set to make them.

April Stamp Club: Watermark Bird Card

I decided to use this card as the other April project because I wanted to demonstrate the watermark technique using the Versamark stamp pad. This designer paper is Blueberry Crisp, and it is so beautiful, especially with Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede card stock. I stamped the message on the Top Note die cut with the Curly Cute stamp set, and used two colors to punch the two step bird for the front. After I punched the scallops, I sponged them with soft suede to kind of antique them.

April Stamp Club: Sweet & Sour Butterfly Card

This is one of my April Stamp Club cards. I used the Sweet & Sour Designer Series Paper, Pumpkin Pie card stock, Rose Red card stock, the Beautiful Wings embosslit, the Decorative Label punch and the Scallop Border punch. The Sweet & Sour paper is very Springy and club members really liked the card.
