Sapphire Stampers Club 3-9-18 Hostess: Shari K.

We made 4 projects today.
This first one is a get well kit.  So cute! I have seen several versions on the web and decided I should try my hand at it.
It includes 3 items:  A small package of tissue, a pack of cough drops (I have seen Halls and Ricola in the square pack) and a package of Lipton Cup A Soup.
 (I looked all over town to find Lipton Cup A Soup but was unsuccessful.  So I used the regular Lipton Chicken noodle in a packet)
The paper is the delightful daisy DSP.  I used So Saffron instead of daffodil delight.  I made an instruction sheet to make this project.  (See below)

 This next project is a Birthday card. 
We used the adhesive sheets to apply the cutout Happy Birthday.
The sheets work really to adhere the thin writting without getting glue all over.
The DSP is the Eclectic.  The Glimmer paper is a 6x 6 paper stack from the Myth and Magic suite.
I have decided I like the Lemon Lime twist paper.  It feels refreshing.
And it goes really well with my Maiden Hair fern!  Lol
 This Easter card uses the recently added Sale a bration set, Blossoming Basket.  You can't see very well in the picture, but there are dazzling diamonds on the flower for a little bling along with the butterfly punched from dazzling diamonds glimmer paper.
 The last project was a St Patrick treat using the small clear boxes.  Just the right size for some chocolate coins.
 I used a retired St. Patricks stamp.  I like how the basket weave embossing folder gave the little card a little texture.

Treat bags for Fitness Group

I have been working out with a fitness group for the past 8 weeks and Monday was the last day that we would all be together.  I decided to make a treat for everyone.
It was a bag of snack mix with a chocolate.

Sapphire Stampers 1st club of the year 11-28-17- Hostess Kathy P.

I didn't post these projects back in November when we had the first club night.  Unfortunately I did not take pics of all the projects and I can't remember which projects we did.  Ugh!  So I may update this post periodically if I remember what we did.

 The card below uses "fun foam" or craft foam to get a leather effect.  We cut the fun foam with the stitched framelits.  I hope they don't ever get rid of the stitched framelits.  I love them!
Edited 3-20-18  I remembered another card that we made...
The copper foil paper was fairly new and clear embossing on it made the leaf have texture.
The paper behind the leaf with the cable knit texture was made with the dynamic Cable knit embossing folder.

Sapphire Stamper Club 1-17-18 Hostess: Judy Mae

Trying to catch up on my blogging.
 Here are the cards we made at club in January.

This card uses the waterfront set.  It is such a versatile set.  A fun one to play with and see what you can come up with.  I really like the watercolor effects you get with this set.
And since Valentines day was approaching... we had to make a Valentine card.

We used the "Picture Perfect" DSP stack for the card below.  I case'd this card from someone and I can't remember who it was.  But I really liked the idea.
 There is a piece of cellophane from a cellophane bag put on top of the DSP to make it look like a shiny Polaroid picture.
I also made little Valantine treats for everyone.
I had a mini espresso cup that I decorated and filled with goodies (unfortunately I didn't take a pic of it)
I also made these little note pads to go with it.

Sapphire Stampers club 2-9-18 Hostess: Terry A.

Hello,
I am finally getting some posts on the blog.  Yay!
Here are the cards/projects that we made at the Feb club night.

This first card was using packing tape and dazzling diamonds to get a glimmer paper look for the pink hearts. The stamp set is the hostess set called tranquil tulips. The colors for the flowers are berry burst and rich raspberry.  The leaves are old olive.  The cardstock is pink pirouette.
 This project idea was from my up line.  It uses half of a acetate card box with DSP.  So cute!
 This final card uses the whisper white narrow note cards and envelopes 145583. You get 20 of each for $8.00.  They are  2 3/4 x 4 3/4. We used the DSP from the tutti fruiti stack and the Label me pretty stamp set.
Coming soon...
Picture of January assignment. 
At the January club everyone had a chance to play with the Brusho colors.  They each made a watercolor using emboss resist for the flower.  
The assignment was to take the watercolor and turn it into a card. Here is what they came up with. 
All of them are different and each is beautiful!!  Good Job Ladies!

Below is a picture of the Thank You cards I sent out for our gifts we received at Christmas.
I used the washi tape from Myths & Magic suite and the petal pair embossing folder, both from the new Occasions catalog.
The color didn't turn out very well.  Still trying to get my camera figured out.
The color is supposed to be tranquil tide, below looks more like Almost Artichoke.
Anyway, you get the idea.
Edited addition:  this is a better pic of the true color below
