September cards




September Stamp club had an option of two cards this month instead of the Scrap book page I showed you yesterday.

Supplies

Paper Always Artichoke, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine tango, Whisper White Stamps Inspired by Nature, Sanded Ink Chocolate chip, Always Artichoke, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango


Accessories Top note die, Big shot, Stamping write markers in Chocolate chip and Always Artichoke, Ribbon, Stamping dimensionals, and scallop border, new larger oval, key tag punches


Start by inking and stamping the sanded background on a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece Always Artichoke card stock with the same color ink. Using you big shot (and the top note die) send 2 pieces of card stock through the machine one in Chocolate Chip and the other in Whisper White. Remove and trim along dotted line of the Whisper White card stock. To stamp this image you will need to do the following;


  1. Ink the flower section of the inspired by nature stamp set with Tangerine Tango

  2. Using a Q-tip or a blender pen remove the Tangerine Tango ink from stems and leaves.

  3. Take a Always Artichoke stamping write marker and paint in stems and leaves.

  4. Take a Chocolate chip, stamping write marker and paint the centers of the cone flowers

  5. Huff and stamp!

Assemble the card wrap with a section of orange ribbon and adhere to card stock. Stamp a sentiment and punch from oval punch and Punch a piece of Tangerine Tango using the new large oval. Assemble and adhere using stamping dimensionals.


Second card


Take 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of Kiwi Kiss card stock and using ink in the same color stamp both the flower and the grass in the center of your card stock. Using the left over choclate chip peice from the top note die cut trim so it is slightly smaller than the kiwi kiss card stock. It is easier to trim after cutting. This is because if you don't center the top note frame when you run it through the machine, you can center it now when you cut it. Using stamping dimensionals tack to Kiwi kiss card stock. Using whisper white ribbon tie and adhere to the bottom of the card. Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of whisper white (I actually used a left over section of stamped grass)and punch using Key tag punch. Thanks for looking Virginia
