October Stamper's Club

I recently began discovering the wonderful world of Stamping Up, thanks to my friend Denise who is a demonstrator. My Mom and I have taken several classes with Denise so far and plan on taking them on a regular basis. I'm really enjoying being able to spend several hours at Denise's house creating some fabulous cards and socializing without any pressure. I still have to photograph some of the cards that we've made with Denise (from the monthly card class), but I do have the most recent ones we made photographed and ready to post.

Last Wednesday we went for our first Stamper's Club. We made three cards while we were there and had a wonderful time visiting with Denise. 

We made this cute little candy holder, complete with M&M's (Yummy!!!). Denise taught us how to use the Round Tab punch to create the bats. I fell in love with the Batty For You stamp set and had to add it to my collection.

As part of the Stamper's Club we learn a new technique each month. This month we had a lot of fun with the Marbles Technique to create this fabulous background for our Halloween card. Denise also taught us how to create the mats for the stamps with a punch. I love how this card looks -- and it uses the cute Batty For You stamp set too!!!

We used a beautiful snowflake stamp to stamp the background for this Merry Christmas card. The white snowflakes look so pretty with the Elegant Eggplant cardstock. We used the Patterned Pines stamp for the trees -- love how elegant they look stamped in white.

I'm already looking forward to our next class with Denise. Check out her website here.
