My stamp club, "The Happy Stampers" meets once a month. Here are the projects that we did in November.
Please forgive the fact that this snowman card is sideways - I can't figure out how to get him turned. The details of this card are pretty straight forward. Punch out 3 circles for the snowman. The size of the circles I used are 1 3/4", 1 3/8" and 1". The Real Red layer is embossed using the Snow Burst embossing folder. The arms for the snowman are made from the snowflake punch.
These 2 paper bows are made using the Frostwood Lodge Designer Paper. There are 13 strips of paper used to make these and one large jumbo brad. 8 strips are 1" x 5 1/4" and 5 strips are 1" x 4". Each end of all strips are punched with a small hole about 1/4" from the end. Each strip is folded/bent into a loop so the holes match up and then loaded onto the brad. When all loops are loaded, the final strip is rolled into a cylinder and loaded and the brad is opened to secure them all in place. Note that the top bow is made with all loops the same way, the bottom bow is made with the designer paper made with the loops in opposite directions to show off both sides of the designer paper.
This card shows how you can color our Silver Glitter Paper using any colored Classic Ink Refill. The balloons on this card were punched out of a strip of silver glitter paper that was colored using Melon Mambo Ink refill and an aquapainter. The more water you use the lighter the color you will get. You could let it dry and re-apply to get a darker color too. Very fun technique!
Hope you enjoy this month's cards! ~Heidi
