September Club Projects

Hi all!
It has been very busy here in my world.  I thought as you got older things slowed down.  It doesn't!
I want to share the projects we made in club for the month of September.

This was our main technique card.  It uses faux flocking. 
I found the how tos on Andrea Walford's blog.  It is the shredded fuzz from the edge of the cardstock.  You get that by distressing the edge with the distressor in the Cutter Kit or the edge of your scissors blade.
Apply drops of Crystal Effects on the area you want the faux flocking then using a tweezers add the fuzz over the Crystal Effects.

Friends 24-7 Stamp Set
Tall Tales DSP, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red CS and Ink
Crystal Effects, Dyed Organza ribbon, Circle punches

This card technique (Peek A Boo Window) was inspired by a card Dawn Griffith made with the flocked paper in the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper.  I love how the stamp set peeks out through the Window sheet piece.  For class we used the multi stripe paper for the DSP sections.  This was my early sample.

This is our first Christmas card.  I love how the Medallion stamp can be used for any type of card.  Here I paired it with a snowflake and phrase from Best Wishes and More.  The snowflake is inked up with Rich Razzleberry ink, then using a dauber we added the Champagne Shimmer paint to it.  An Ice Brad holds the small circle layers together.  It is attached to the Medallion with demensionals.  The phrase is stamped on the Modern punch shape, and layered with the matching shape from the Movers & Shapers set.

This was our 3D item for the month.  A cute Halloween 2/4/6/8 (this one is 2/3/2/3) type treat box.  This can also be made using the Fancy Favor Stampin' Up! Bigz Xl Die.  Much easier if you are making dozens at a time.   I used the window sheets to create the floating window.  Just punch out the 1 3/4" circle punch from the end section (so the punch can reach the center), attach your window sheet on the inside.  Punch out the center of the stamped image with the 1 1/4" punch.  Punch again with the 1 3/4" circle punch to create the opening.  Then attach the stamped image over the opening in the box.  Center the 1 1/4" image onto the acetate window.  Assemble the box.  I used the horizontal punch to create the ribbon opening in each side to tie it closed.

I recommend using Sticky Strip tape when making 3D items that will be handled often.  It holds up better.
