May 2010 Stamp Club






Our hostess this month wanted to make decorated storage jars. I decided to broaden the focus just a bit, so I put out a selection of containers with "potential" and had each person choose one to decorate. We did a little brainstorming and came up with a list of possible uses for each. Then we fanned out, selecting paper, ribbon, embellishments and stamps that would support our ideas. The photos above show you some of the great results! (Too bad I didn't think to bring in the camera for the first session...)

Incorporating dimension is always a challenge, and it's especially important on projects that are 3D by nature. I demonstrated the flower you see on the two round brie boxes, made with the fancy flower punch and old magazines/catalogs. Our 5/8" brads or pronged corduroy buttons are perfect for holding them together and providing a center! We used the new Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to antique them a bit.
Watch for an upcoming post that features just the flowers. Kathy
