Stamp Club

This month for stamp club we tried something a bit different. We used a template created by Angie Kennedy Juda to make five projects from one sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. Here are the five projects we made:

This is the cutting template that Angie came up with:

Each stamp club member chose a different sheet of Sweet Sorbet DSP and cut it according to the template above and then scored the 3D projects. In addition to the designer paper we used card stock in Crisp Cantelope, Pistaccio Pudding, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit. We used ink pads in the same colours. 
Project #1  Treat Bag

For this project we also used a bit of ribbon and linen thread to hold the bag closed at the top. The sentiment is from the stamp set Perfect Pennants. The layers were cut with the Banners Framelits.  The photo on the right is the scoring guide for this treat bag.

Project #2  Pizza Box

The pizza box is topped with a cupcake made using the Cupcake Punch layered onto a Pool Party circle and Pistachio Pudding scallop circle.  In the photo on the right the dashed lines show where to score, the solid lines show where to cut.
Project #3  Tiny Triangle Box

We stamped a flower image from Petite Petals and punched it out with the coordinating punch.  The flower is layered onto a Pistachio Pudding circle and Pool Party scallop circle.  The box is tied shut with a bit of ribbon through tiny holes we punched in the top. 

Project #4  Thank You Card

This card uses the three thin strips of DSP.  We  cut a notch out of each end, and adhered them to the front, and folded over to the inside of the card.  For the focal image we stamped the smaller flower image from So Very Grateful and coloured it in with blender pens and ink from our ink pads. If you've never tried this before all you do is press the centre of your ink pad when it is closed, some of the ink will be transferred to the lid. Pick up the ink from the lid with your blender pen like it's a paint palette. We cut the image out with the Circle Framelits and layered it onto a punched out Crisp Cantaloupe scallop circle, and a Pool Party banner.

Project #5  Make a Wish Card

We used the 2" x 5 1/2" piece of DSP on this last project.  We stamped make a wish from Perfect Pennants in Pool Party and cut out all of the layers with the Banner Framelits.  The final embellishment were a bit of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon attached with a Silver Brad, and an Itty Bitty punched flower in Summer Starfruit with a Rhinestone centre.

This class was a bit more involved than our typical stamp club class, but I just love the versatility of a concept like this one sheet wonder as it can be used with any designer paper you may have and whatever stamp sets suit the occasion you are making the projects for.  This also gives you great value for your Designer Paper!  The five projects can also be used individually, simply use the size of paper indicated in the template for the project you'd like to make and follow the scoring guide.

Go stamp something!
