Die of the Month Club

I recently joined a fabulous group of local stamp artists in a Die of the Month Club. Yesterday I saw firsthand some of their amazing projects (next time I'm bringing my camera!)and I'm excited about upcoming meetings! I felt inspired, so I decided to share them with you just in case you might be feeling inspired. I'm about to show a little bit of Contraband here, so if you're only in it for the Stampin' Up! it's your fair warning to look away! On the other hand, this is my Mostly Stampin' Up! blog, and these are mostly Stampin' Up! ATC's. This first sample features a teeny-tiny ice cream cone. Can't see it? Look closer at that little banner - it's the cone! I used SU's scallop border punch, then lobbed off the little ruffles from the ice cream scoops and tucked them under the punched border. Colors used on this project were: Early Espresso, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, and Very Vanilla:

On this second card I used Mambo Melon (and tried the ric-rac technique for a little border at the bottom, combined with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine and a Daffodil Delight Designer Button, Lucky Limeade, Mambo Melon and Daffodil Delight ink, and an image from the Just Believe Stamp Set.

My final card was a case of another I found online but forgot where - if it's yours my apologies! I used a little Bright Red Acrylic Craft Paint for the background. I've been seeing a lot of paint included on people's projects and thought I'd give it a try here. Also used on this card is: Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Billboard Die, Dazzling Details, Early Espresso Ink, Just Add Cake DSP, Glimmer Brad, Boho Blossom punch and Log Cabin Smooch. The image is from the soon to be retired Best Friends Forever stamp set and the card stock is Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake:
Thanks for stopping by. Come back tomorrow because I am going to show you the most adorable Ice Cream Cone card I made last weekend using ALL Stampin' Up! Products.
