End of an Era

(Laurie, Shery, Vanessa, Melissa & Shannon)
LeAnn & Verlene left before I got the camera out...and we missed Jody!

Stamp group has come to the end of the road. We have had a great run and I think we are up to 3 years?? (is that right, or is it 4?) We have had other members through the years and have hated to see them go, and we have picked up others to help finish our run.

Last night we had our last stamp group gathering. Shannon our fearless leader had some wonderful projects for us.Here are two of the 3. (I can't find my third one...but it was amazing too!)

I know we will be having stamp nights in the future, but I will miss our every other month food/stamping/food/chatting/food/stamp group fest. Thanks girls for the fabulous run! And thanks to Shannon for all of her amazing ideas, projects and workspace!

Chic Boutique

I had a card party on Friday and my awesome hostess, Madeline, asked me to do something French so this is how the make & take turned out....

Chic Boutique stamp set and Nouveau Chic DSP were the two main ingredients. The I used the new flower punch (4 layers of DSP), my current favorite brads and of course a little Dazzling Diamonds for the Eiffel Tower....voila!

FYI (Vanessa)

My new favorite stamp set is FYI. (page 144 in the 2009-10 catalog)

FYI, that paper came from a huge stack purchased at JoAnn's.

Vintage Suede (Shannon)

Have I really not posted anything since July? I'm going to fire myself from my own stamping blog!!!

Anyway since returning from Leadership Conference, which was last week, my mind has been buzzing with everything I want to try and make. To be honest, I've never felt this excited about stamping, post event. It was an AMAZING week last week!!!!!!

Anyway I wanted to make some cards for my friend's birthday. She's a non-frills kind of gal so I wanted to try something w/my new Vintage Vogue stamp set, and neutral colors....

Very Vanilla card stock, clear embossing powder, VersaMark, Soft Suede ink, Vintage Vogue and Chic Boutique stamp sets.
Kraft card stock and Soft Suede textured for the strip in the middle.
Soft Suede card stock, silver Encore. Lg flower is VersaMark & clear embossing powder.
