April Club Projects

At our last club meeting in April, we created projects using a Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek and items that were in the Occasions mini and are no longer available! So please forgive me for posting these items a little late!

The first card is the sneak peek! You could purchase this stamp set and DSP with a qualifying order or earn free with a qualifying workshop. These will be available again in July as they are from the new catalog that goes into effect on July 1! I also used the In Stitches wheel that was in the mini. I cut the wheel apart so that I could put the stitching marks where I wanted and I can use one set of stitches at a time!

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: In Stitches, Four Frames, Hello Again
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze
Cardstock: River Rock, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: Final Press embossing folder, Decorative label punch, Paisley Petals DSP

This next card combined two of my favorite stamps from the mini, Eat Chocolate and Create a Cupcake! I also took inspiration from a Stampin' Success magazine. This is a magazine that only Stampin' Up! Demonstrators receive once a month. It's full of great ideas! I always enjoy reading it each month.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Create a Cupcake, Eat Chocolate
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Real Red, Whisper White, Glimmer paper
Ink: Real Red, Early Espresso
Accessories: 1 3/8" circle punch, Designer Label punch, Build a Cupcake punch,
 Pinking Heart border punch, Whisper White Satin ribbon, dimensional

I LOVE this card! We did some embossing resist on it. My ladies loved the buttons and punches matched! Pretty cool that we were able to add color to the button!

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Easter Blossoms
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versa Mark
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Springtime Vintage DSP, Clear embossing powder, Chantilly crochet trim, linen
thread, Bitty Buttons, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, scallop border punch, pearls, sponge

The last project we did was a carrot pouch. This uses the Petal Cone die from Stampin' Up! There are so many uses for this die. It's a ton of fun to use it! What can you come up with?

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Basic Black
Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Basic Black, Whisper White

Wonderful projects, Shelley! A great way to showcase the Occasions Mini items. I hope that many of these will make the new IBC.
