What a fun night!! During our first Stamp Club, everyone got to meet some new people and we all agreed to officially start Stamp Club with the rotating hostess benefits in

We also made three cards with coordinating envelopes.

The first was using the Branch Out stamp set (currently on the dormant list, but still available to order). This was a good first-timers card to get people warmed up and comfortable with stamping. We learned about basic stamping techniques and how nicely the colors within each color family coordinate with each other.

The second card used Loads of Love & Loads of Love Accessories. This one was a little more complicated as there was quite a bit of coloring & free-hand drawing involved. We also tried tying twine and learned how to use brads (the perfect hubcap!). We learned to use the brads on a top layer of paper so the backsides don't show on the inside of the cards. Using little accessories like brads & twine really help make cards more interesting and neat looking.

Our third card was a hit! This design and these colors are good all year round. We learned how to use ribbon and fold it under a top layer so the ends of the ribbon don't show. We also learned about having images go off the edges of cards, how to use "dimensionals" and how fun, easy & pretty the rhinestone brads can be... they really helped make these cards sparkle!

I hope you all had a good time & I'm looking forward to our next Stamp Club on November 13th!
