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.

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

Clubs forming for the year

Hello, I am getting ready to form Stamp clubs for the year.

You may be asking, What is a Stamp Club??
A stamp club is a great way to learn techniques, how to use different
products and you don't have to worry about making a mess or cleaning up your house because I hold all the clubs at my house.  Plus you get together with new and old friends.  Want to make your
own Christmas cards?  Make little gift items?  Sign up for club and learn how.

How it works:
A minimum of 4 people and max of 6 per club.

Each person in the club is committed to participating in each meeting
which is based on the amount of people in the club.  Usually it is
once a month.
     *For example:  if there are 4 people in the club, there will be 4
club meetings and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of
$37.50 per meeting.

*If there are 5 people in the club, there will be 5 club meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $30.00 per
     *And if there are 6 people in the club, there will be 6 meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $25.00 per

Each person will have an opportunity to receive hostess benefits st one
of the meetings.
     *That means you get to choose free stuff from the catalog and
benefit from promotions going on at the time of the meeting. (And
Stampin' Up has a lot of promotions!)
I will go over everything at the first meeting so don't worry.
