January Stamp Club

Happy 2012! Here's to another year of stamping fun!  Since it's a new year, we've decided to get back to basics.  When I started stamping, there were no Big Shots, DSP or metallic paper (I painted my own card stock with metallic paint so my paper would be shimmery, lol--something I would never take the time to do today!).  Cards were much more simple--black ink pad, colored with Pastels (but, they were called chalks), and glitter was added for a little sparkle and shine with the 2-way glue pen.  Here's what we did today....
If you don't recognize the corner punch, it's because it's not a corner rounder.  The circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack was used to cut a notch off the corners.  Neat trick, huh?  Learned it at convention!  The Wild Wasabi is "lifted  up" with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Pastels are great because you don't have to color within the lines--whoever told us that anyway?  Where's the fun in that?  I give you permission to color outside the lines, lol!!! Stamping is supposed to be fun!!!  It's not brain surgery, and it's only paper.  Have fun with it!  Bye for now, Maria

Supplies used:  Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red Naturals White cardstock; Basic Black Classic Ink Pad;  Easy Events stamp set; 2 1/2" Circle, the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes, Small Heart Punches; Seam Binding Ribbon; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; Two-way Glue Pen; Stampin' Pastels (Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi); Stampin' Dimensionals.
