Samples and examples from Stampers 10.

I saw this layout done on Splitcoaststampers and gave it a try. Baja Breeze cardstock is layered with Baja Breeze double sided paper, the front flap of the card was cut off in the middle, more ds paper was layered over the front. I attached the BIG NOTE to the front flap, but firsts embossed with the cuddlebug embossing folder Snowflakes using my BIG SHOT. I had the Baja Breeze wide ribbon and slit the Big Note to thread ribbon around and tied. As an afterthought I
wanted to stamp a greeting on the front of the Big Note so I took a chance and did it after it was embossed. Holding it onto the embossed cardstock for a little longer amount of time than for a flat piece of cardstock gave me a dark, crisp image. (next time I would cut out first, then stamp and then emboss.)

This is one of the projects we did at club this month. We used a double sided designer series paper for the box, and a transparency for the slide on/off cover. The ribbon is tied on lengthwise to keep the box closed until opened by the receipient. The strips of coordinating designer series paper is attached to Hershey's Nuggets candy using double sided tape. Add a tag and a sweet treat you have ready for giving!

This absolutely charming card is a CASE card from my friend Dawn O. who is dostamping on Splitcoaststampers. Here I used the SAB paper and the BIG SHOT sizzlet die of the birds. I improvised using a white satin ribbon, but she used the taffeta ribbon by Stampin' Up!. My misaligned greeting is because I didn't do so well using the Stamp a ma jig tool. Oops!
The SAB congrats set would be very useful to make a wedding or anniversary card.

Sample card of a 6x6 textured card folded to make a quick 3x6 card, here the flower is embellished with a rhinestone.

My simple swap card. Can't seem to find crystal rhinestones for embellishing my cards. That's what it is lacking. I love the eyelet scallop edge punch. It adds a feminine touch to cards and scrapbook pages.
