April Club

Tonight is my stamp club, and here is what my ladies are making.

The first project is our Easter card that I am so excited about! It's like a card and a 3-d project all in one. A moveable card! The top of the card is held together on the side with a brad. Don't use adhesive on the top part or your card won't be making any movement!

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Eight Great Greetings, Yummy
Ink: Basic Black, Misc. to color bunny
Paper: Certainly Celery, Kraft, Regal Rose, Whisper White, So Saffron
Accessories: Brad, So Saffron Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch

The next card we are making uses some fabulous new things from the Occasions Mini Catalog! The stamp set is great, and the paper is even better!

This is kind of a card within a card, if you will. Here is a picture of the card opened:

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Great Friend
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Gray, Cameo Coral
Paper: Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Walk in the Park DSP
Accessories: Baja Breeze Ribbon

The last project we are making are cute little easter baskets to hold candy. I just love making things that hold candy! In fact, I liked them so much, I made additional ones to have on my Easter table on Sunday. You will see those in a few days.

To make these baskets, Cut your cardstock at 6"x6", and score at 1 1/2" in all sides. Snip 4 of the crease lines to fold up and form the bottom of your basket (I used sticky strip to keep it together, and inserted the ribbon when I folded up the box so you can't see it. Add some fun Easter grass and candy and you're done!

Stamp Set: Loads of Love Accessories
Ink: Garden Green

Paper: Garden Green, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Garden Green DSP
Accessories: 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Kiwi Kiss Ribbon
