November Club projects

I have a hostess group that meets every month. We make several projects every time we meet. These are the projects that we made in November. This card is very simple but I was pretty excited with the way it turned out! I did change it a little from what my ladies all stamped but you get the idea! The snowflakes have Platinum shimmer paint on them. I also stamped the ornament and the sentiment with shimmer paint on them. What I did to do this is ink up the stamp in the color that I wanted and then using a finger dauber, I sponged on the shimmer paint and then stamped.

Stamps: Tags til Christmas, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Platinum shimmer paint, finger dauber, Marina Mist ribbon, Northern Flurries embossing folder, Ticket corner punch, ornament punch, dimensional

These hand sanitizers have been all over the place. They are super fun to make! I followed directions from somewhere but not sure where. I made several extra and then sold them at a vendor fair that I was part of (hence the sign in the background!).

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Dot, Dot, Dot
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Basic Black
Ink: Poppy Parade, Soft Suede
Accessories: Wide oval, scallop circle, 1/2" circle, snowflake punches, crop-a-dile, 2-way glue, dazzling diamonds, dimensionals

Here's the inside. I didn't do anything to it. Ran out of time!

The last project we made required each member of the club to bring along a mini muffin tin. We punches scallops from Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler (don't you just LOVE this new, rich red? I do!) and circles from Holly Jolly designer series papers. I printed the numbers from my computer and we punched them with the 1/2" circle punch. Add some magnets and you have a great Advent calendar! We were trying to figure out what you could put behind the scallops as little gifts other than candy. Quarters are my favorite!

Edited to add: In searching for something else this evening, I found a picture of this advent calendar exactly like mine! The other one was posted this summer. I must have seen it and forgot! Mine has therefore been CASEd!

Stamps: none
Cardstock: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: none
Accessories: 2 3/8" scallop circle, 1/2" circle and 1 3/4" circle punches, Old Olive striped ribbon, magnets

Now, don't you want to be making cool projects like this every month? Call or email me and we'll get you into a group and make some more fabulous creations!

Happy Stampin'!
