Well, I deserve 50 lashes with a wet noodle! Why? Because it is almost August and I am just now getting my Stamp of the Month Club going for July! There was that little matter of Convention getting in the way, but that's certainly not a very good excuse. I'm ready to take my punishment!
But I am excited to share my samples with you today. My stamp set of the month is World of Dreams!
Each month I select a stamp set and design 3 cards using that stamp set. When you join, you will get the stamp set in clear mount, the 3 finished cards to use as samples and 3 photo tutorials giving clear step-by-step directions on how to make them mailed directly to you! You will have access to a Facebook Group in order to ask questions, or just chat with other club members and you may also have exclusive access to the odd video tutorial if I am demonstrating a technique. This will be for my Canadian customers only as I can't ship products to other countries due to Stampin' Up! regulations.
You may start or stop at anytime, BUT if you commit to a term of 6 months, you will receive the hostess benefits from all the other Stamp of the Month Club orders during one of those 6 months. The cost for all these benefits, plus a free Annual Catalogue and any other catalogues that come out during your term, is $35 a month. You will also earn a Papercraft Cat Customer Reward point each month.
If you live in another country, I can mail you the card samples and the photo tutorials for $15 CAD plus shipping costs, which would vary depending on where you live. You would also have access to the Facebook Group and the video tutorials when they are available. Get full info and sign up here.
Let's take a closer look at one of the cards today. I used the new sketch challenge at The Paper Players this week for the layout.
- I love this colour combination of Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand and Whisper White. There are a lot of colours there, but they work so well together that it doesn't seem like too much.
- I left off the background DSP panel, because with the size and patterns of my flags, I felt it would be too much to include more Designer Series Paper.
- I backed the oval with one of the Labels Collection Framelits because they fit together so well and because I could!
- At the end, it needed something more to the right of the oval for balance, so I added a small Vintage Faceted Button threaded with some Linen Thread.
