March Club Projects A Little Late!

Good Morning All! Before I jump into my project for today, I want to thank all of you that have subscribed to my monthly Newsletter. I made you all aware that I send one at least once a month, full of free project sheets and all Stampin' Up! information and promotions going on. I wanted to add one more tip.....

Some of you are not able to view the photo's, depending on your electronic device. That is why you need to click on "View Photos" or "Display Photos" at the top of your email so that everything that I have in my newsletter displays properly for you AND so you can download my free project sheets and so that you can click on any other links I include. Hope that helps!

So these two projects happened last month for my monthly clubs:

I have been doing so many Facebook Live Classes that I am buried trying to load all of my projects here for you. I should be caught up within the next week or so. These two cards use stamp sets from our 2018 Sale-A-Bration Catalog which expired on March 31st. You can no longer earn these two stamp sets for free BUT.......did you noticed the Basket Weave Embossing Folder inked background on the card on the right? I'll talk more about this embossing folder in a few minutes. First let's look closely at the card on the left:

I used the Eclectic Expressions Sale-A-Bration stamp set and actually copied a sample from the catalog. I changed up the colors. I love how easily this card came together!

Now let's take a look at the 2nd card which uses the Blossoming Basket Sale-A-Bration stamp set and I'll discuss the Basket Weave Embossing Folder below:

Why is the dry embossing showing up in Daffodil Delight? That's because I opened up the embossing folder and pounced my ink pad on the inside (the side with the Stampin' Up! logo), placed my Whisper White Cardstock inside and embossed by running it through my Big Shot Machine. This is called "Inked Embossing". See it even better in this close-up photo:

The basket, butterfly and tag were all stamped in Basic Black Ink and the images were colored with ink pads and a Blender Pen and then hand-cut all of the images. A trick I showed my girls was to use a 3/4" Circle Punch to cut a hole below the handle of the basket. this gives you a starting point for your scissors.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great week and make sure you stop in tomorrow!
