July Stamp Club

These are the cards and pages we did at Stamp Club today, and we had so much fun! Congrats to Debbie who was our "Mystery Hostess" winner. She will receive $35 in free SU merchandise and a level 2 hostess stamp set out of the BRAND NEW CATALOG!! I'm jealous. This is an up close shot of the texture plate images that were on the white cardstock. They are so pretty, and such a bargain since you get 6 sets of images in the texture plates pack! As always, click on the pictures to see a bigger, more detailed picture!
Theses are the scrapbook pages we did, and I have to give credit where it is due -- I expanded these from an 8 1/2 X 11 page my upline Jessica Wilsted made 3 or 4 years ago as a swap for Stampin' Up Convention. She had an extra, and I loved it, so expanded it to what you see now. I "dirtied" up the vanilla cardstock with a sponge and Creamy Caramel classic ink. We stamped the "USA" in craft Night of Navy so it would look like paint. Turned out great!
Here's what we used to make the pages:
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Real Red, Very Vanilla & Real Red Textured (for "God bless the")
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Night of Navy craft
Accessories: Small star punch, silver brads, "Billboard" Sizzlet strip die, Big Shot, 1/16" punch
~~Note: The vanilla CS is cut @ 2" and layered over the real red. Measurements for the "USA" tag are vanilla 4" X 3 1/2" and night of navy 4 1/2" X 4". We "dirtied" the stars before punching.
These are up close pics of the choices my club members got to pick from. I love the new In Colors -- they are so summer-y. This card is cased from TreasureOiler on Splitcoast and you can see her original post here. This such a classy card, and so nice for summer -- of course Megan (our recent HS graduate) loved it and wants a bunch to send out for thank you cards! I think I'll let her help me make them! The card above is in Burmuda Bay, and below is in Melon Mambo -- gotta LOVE the coordinating ribbon!!!
This is the new Crushed Curry In Color:
And this was the most popular at club, Rich Razzleberry.
Aren't they pretty all together? Now I know why I have such a hard time giving them away! You can order these new In Colors NOW (see the catalog link if you don't have a hard copy!). This will be my last post for a while probably, as we are on our way to Utah for 5 weeks day-after-tomorrow. I'm looking SO FORWARD to convention, and hanging out with my cool downline gals. We learn so much, and have fun together. I can't wait!
Cardstock: Mambo Melon, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Burmuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock
Ink: Same as In Colors mentioned above
Accessories: Butterfly Bigz Die, Silver Brads, In Color Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Texture Plates #4, Big Shot, Texturz Impression Pad & Silicon Rubber


  1. I love the cards and the scrapbook cute, as usual. And I am just downright shocked that Debbie got mystery hostess!!! LOL Love you guys!

  2. Hey there, I am so looking forward to the day you come home and to see all the fun stuff you got at convention. So why am I writing to you, you over to my blog and pick up something that is waiting for you.

    Have a good one. By the way my mom used one of these cards to give to my Aunt, she LOVED it and so did I.
