Stampin UP father's day card & flower vase

My stamp club ladies got together this past Saturday to create some projects using the yummy products from the new 2013-2014 Stampin' UP! catalog !

This month we created a unique and eclectic Father's Day card using the Show & Tell photopolymer stamp sets. I really like the color combinations for a masculine card.

My tips:
  • create long arrows by inking & stamping half of the image first, then the other half next to it.
  • SU's online class-Seeing the Possibilities (item 134532)-provides all the basics you need to make the most of their newest photopolymer stamp offerings
Supplies used:
  • cardstock: basic gray, smoky slate, bermuda bay, chocolate chip, whisper white
  • inks: chocolate chip, basic grey, bermuda bay, white kraft ink
  • stamp set: show & tell 1,2 ; designer typeset
  • embellishments: neutrals candy dots    

 Our next project is not necessarily a Father's day gift but a simple home decor item that can strike a good conversation in anyone's home!

My tips:
  • punch out 3 flowers. curl two of the flower's petals upward then 1 of them downward.

  • the top flower is made by cutting a slit between two of the petals toward the center of the flower. Then overlap one petal over the other to create a raised flower (you now have 5 petals instead of 6)
  •  create the rose shape in the middle of the top  flower by punching out a 1 3/4" circle and cutting it into a swirl shape; curl from the tip with a skewer to create the rose.
  • works best if you use a low-heat glue gun.
  • cut 3 different lengths of floral wire to offset your flowers.

Supplies used:
  • cardstock: island indigo, whisper white
  • inks: pool party, island indigo, versamark
  • designer series paper(DSP): quatrefancy 
  • stamp set: oh,hello; chalk talk
  • white embossing powder & heat gun
  • other: floral wire, 6 1/2" tall vase (dollar store), filler paper

 Hope you enjoyed today's post! I would love to hear feedback from you, so tell me what you think!

Until next time!....
