Stamp Club Project

I have been working on my stamp club projects, and I normally don't post them ahead of time, but I am trying out something new (to me) called Windows Live Writer. I saw on Jackie's blog here how neat and orderly her pictures and text were. I emailed her and she said she uses Windows Live Writer. So I installed it and this is my first try--what do you think?

The first card is a double pocket card shown on Joy's blog here. It uses Groovy Guava Prints DP and GG cardstock as the base. I chose to cut down the DP by 1/2" on each side so it could be mounted on a base. I felt that gave it a little more stability. I used a Fire Rhinestone brad on the bookmark and some Hershey's candy as a little "gift"! The butterfly is from Touch of Nature and uses the Faux Diamond Dust technique. It is stamped in Stazon, then colored with a marker & GG ink with a blender pen. The whole image is pressed into a Versamark pad, then covered with Iridescent Ice EP and heat embossed. It is beautiful IRL! You can also see a tutorial for this technique here.

The next card is a gift card holder from Debbie Olsen, shown here. I used Crab & Co as my stamp set. All the images are stamped on shimmery white cardstock with Stazon and colored with ink and an aquapainter. This card uses Summer Picnic DP, which is such a great, versatile set of papers!
