August 2010 Stamp Club

If you haven't tried the embossing plates available for the Big Shot, you've missed out on a huge time-saver! In fact, several club members marveled, "I can't believe how fast this went together!" In the first photo above, I've shown the two versions of the card we made at club (one using Elegant Lines, the other Manhattan Flower embossing folders). Note the slight variation in embellishments that dress it up or down to your preference (Antique Brads, Designer Buttons). Inside the card and on the sentiment "medallion" you can see that we used Stampin' Pastels to give a soft look and add color. This is a great technique for beginners, very forgiving. Finally, I've added an idea for a quick-change approach that easily turns this card from a general encouragement theme to a wedding/anniversary card. As you can see, the "Just Believe" stamp set is incredibly versatile!

If you missed club, be sure to schedule a make-up session. You'll be glad you did! Kathy
