Stamp Club Cards

Feels so good to be back in my stamp room to stamp instead of sorting and cleaning! Though it's fun finding cool stuff you've put away and haven't used yet! Here are two cards I created for our August stamp club.

The card was created using a provided sketch. The stamps are new from Flourishes called Zinnias. I always planted zinnias in my garden at our other home. The white cardstock is mounted on a folded black card and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The zinnias were colored with Copics, trimmed and mounted on a strip of new glitter paper I recently purchased at JoAnn's. The sentiment was die cut with Spellbinder's Nestabilities squares and also mounted on black glitter paper.

Our other challenge was to create a card in a shape other than rectangular or square. I recently purchased these round pre-cut cards at The Paper Cut. I distressed all the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. The dp is from Webster's Pages as is the bird. The sentiment is from TPC. Added a bit of glitter to the flowers which doesn't show up well in the photo.

July 4th Week

Our entire family was here for the week of the 4th and we had a fun time! Here we are getting ready for fun in and on the water.

Beach time

Grandpa goofing off on the jet ski. All the older kids had rides on the jet ski from Uncle Doug.
