Downline meeting projects

I had a ton of fun at my group meeting last night and I wanted to share some of the projects we made. On this card we used the new Doily background stamp. I love the detail on this stamp! We also used the new scallop polka dot ribbon... we just hid the polka dots and used the plain side. This next card might be the card we make at stamp club next month... but I haven't decided yet. I have to admit that I bought this Patterned Party stamp set for the banner stamp only, I just had to have the birthday banner!

We made this oval with the new embossing folder and I was so excited to see that the oval die cuts an oval to fit it perfectly!

The third project I designed was this box.

This is the new blossom box Big Shot die. It takes a bit of time folding the score lines but is pretty simple if you follow the directions. Here is a side view of the box to show the depth.

We attached the scallop circle to the box with the new mini clothespin. I love them!

FYI: when you make this box you can close it like this...

But we pushed in the top so the scallop circle could lay flat and attached the clothespin on one of the ruffles. I didn't take a picture of the box open but you can just open the top if you like or open it so it lays flat. So do you want to join us next time?

Doilies galore!

We had stamp club this week and all the projects we used were made with the Flirtatious suite (page 126 -127 of the new catalog). I had a fun time creating samples and I had a wow moment! I stamped this doily stamp on old olive cardstock and it looked so much like a tree that I created this card around it! I free handed the trunk and tied on some fabric for the ribbon. I have been using this owl punch a lot lately. I love using these googlie eyes.

These next two cards I cased from the other demonstrators. I changed them up a bit but they are pretty similar, I would post a link but they are on a website for demonstrators only.

This card was cased from Robin Merriman. I LOVE this new color, it is called Pool Party! Robin's card didn't have the doily, but she took the picture on an orange dish and I loved the color combo.

This card was cased from Tessa Wise. It is a 3x3 card and it also has a new color called Island Indigo! I just love the embossed doily, it really pops.

I will show the club projects we made soon! Are you all enjoying the new catalog? What is your new favorite thing?
