Vintage Bliss Stamp Club

Hi Gorgeous People...... I'm just loving the BLISS set this year. Stamp Club has resumed for the year and we had lots of fun making this gatefold card using the SAB Bliss set. We also made an envelope box to match the card. You can find the envelope box instructions on We stamped off lots of the images to give that faded vintage look. We used the rock'n'roll technique on the bliss word and the butterfly. Lots of spritzing and sponging and you have your card finished.

Stamps: Bliss SAB, well-scripted
Cardstock and ink: Elegant eggplant, Crumb cake, Very Vanilla
Newsprint DSP
scallop oval punch, large oval punch, elegant eggplant ribbon, pearls, spritzer, scor-pal, crimper, eyelet border punch, very vanilla ribbon
Inside of gatefold card
Envelope Box
The stamp club girls really enjoyed making this card. It was a little out of the ordinary for them. They don't do a lot of vintage inspired cards and the box was so easy to make. I'm sure I will be using this box pattern in the future.

Back into Stamping time....

Hello Everyone...just sharing two projects we made in the first workshop for 2011. The card can be made for any occasion and the ladies chose to put a "Happy Mothers Day" greeting on it and the little box was a idea I found on Splitcoast Stampers and I used one of my fav stamp sets, Aviary, from the Summer Mini catalogue.

Aviary Box
Cardstock and Ink: Baja breeze, So saffron, Cherry cobbler, whisper white.
Stamp sets: Aviary and Curly Cute
Sweet Slumber DSP from last year
So saffron brad, Baja breeze ribbon and pearls
2 3/8"Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle and split punch

The Sweet Summer card used a very basic watercolour technique using the markers and an aqua painter. Just colouring a small section with the marker and dragging the colour across the rest of the image with the aquapainter....just a cheats way to watercolour..VERY EASY but still effective.

Hopefully it will get better from now.......
