January Stamp Club

Well, the first club of the new year is tonight. That also means that it is the last club of the Fall/Winter Catalog! Kinda sad to see some of those items going, but oh so exciting to be introduced to all the new and wonderful items in the new one! I received my catalog last night and I just can't wait to place my first order! There really are some amazing things in there, and I can't wait to share some of them with you!

Onto club. We are making three Valentine's related items, and all of them are made using the Love you Much Bundle, of course!

The first card you have already seen, as it was on one of my earlier posts earlier in the week here. I just loved all the punched out hearts!

The second card is more of a candy holder, but the candy could be omitted and be used just as a card as well. Inside this card is a Ghirardelli chocolate square and it is pink for Valentine's!

The base of this card is Pink Pirouette and I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the front flap. The little love birds are just so adorable! I first stamped them on Very Vanilla and then stamped them on the Candy Lane Designer Paper and cut them out so they were fancy love birds! A little (non-SU!) heart brad is above their head, and are wrapped up with Riding Hood Red Ribbon.

The last card isn't really a card at all, but also a candy holder. Sorry, I couldn't resist with Valentine's coming up to not do more than one candy holder! This one is made using the diaper fold, which is super easy and makes a cute little pocket.

To do the diaper fold, take your designer double sided paper and cut into a square. In this case, I did a 6x6 square. Fold er in half so it is a triangle, and with the point facing up, fold the sides of the triangle across to the other side. Fold down the top flap, and there ya have it!

I used the Candy Lane Designer Paper, and secured it with Sticky Strip. The heart on the front is cut out with scissors and is from the Love you Much stamp set. It is colored in using Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa. Now, I know we don't have markers for the In-Colors, but if you take a little ink from your re-inker and drop it into the lid of the stamp pad, you can use your Blender Pen to act like a marker! Neat trick, huh? The Sentiment is also from Love you Much and is stamped in Chocolate Chip, punched out with the Word Window and secured with a Silver Brad. The M&M's are in the Small Cello Bag and tied up with the Pink Pirouette Ribbon!

Here is a picture of all three club projects! I hope you like them as much as I do - are you falling in love with the Love you Much set yet?
