Club Projects

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  My schedule is all out of whack, it's just been too busy around here!  Yesterday was club day and since I didn't have a chance to stamp something new, I thought I would share our projects!  The first one uses the Botanical Bliss stamp set and matching die, Botanical Tags.  I had an idea in my head about using the bird tag on a card without using it as a tag, so this is what I came up with:

The cardstock size is 4 1/4" x 7, and I partially scored it at 3 1/2" but didn't fold it.  I lined up the die so that the bottom cutting portion was along the score line, die-cut it and carefully popped out the pieces, then folded it so the diecut portion stood up.  It still fits into a standard-sized envelope.  We added some Share What You Love DSP, and stamped sentiments and elements on the inside:

We also colored rhinestones with Blends!  Our second project was an Apron of Love candy treat, which was a CASE from my friend, Cindy Brumbaugh.  You can see her wonderful YouTube tutorial here.  I tweaked mine a little, using some retired ribbon for straps; each person used whatever stamp they preferred from the Apron of Love set:

Thanks for popping in today!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Both are very clever. I'll have to try those. Cassidy's smile sure does light up a room.

Terrific projects today LeAnne! Your bird die idea is pretty nifty and I like your cute gingham apron!

How fabulous is that Botanical Bliss card?! Using the tag element as a partial diecut is inspired; it never occurred to me to use this die in this way yet it is perfect and so very clever! I love that card LeAnne. The apron treat holder is cute too - who wouldn't like to wear a yellow gingham apron, right?
