Stamp Club Projects

I had my Stamp Club this past Saturday.  I just love those gals!  We laugh, cut loose and have a grand ole time every time we meet.
IMG_3068This is one of the many reasons why I represent Stampin’ Up! I wanted to create more opportunities to spend time with my gal pals.  And what better way than through rubber stamping?

What’s a Stamp Club?
Stamp Club is a group of six people who commit to meeting one time every month for six months.  We meet in my home, I have several projects for everyone to make, and then everyone places a minimum order of $25 of Stampin’ Up! product from our catalog.  Each member gets a turn to be “hostess” to earn hostess benefits, ie. FREE products!!!

Last Saturday we made three projects.  One was the cellophane bag stamped with White StazOn ink that I posted yesterday.  Sooooo, so pretty.  Find it here. My other two projects use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. We made a tag featured below. We also made a cute goodie basket with the punch.  Come back tomorrow to see that project.

Here, along with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, we also used the Endless Wishes stamp set, All is Calm washi tape and the Frosted Sequins from our Holiday catalog.

***Be sure to scroll down for a super nifty tip on how to apply the sequins.*** 

Steps to create the tag:
1) Push your cardstock into the 2″ wide “gulley” of the punch until it can’t go any farther. Punch as usual.
2) Stamp the snowflakes on the top half of the tag.
3) Stamp the greeting.
4) Apply washi tape by simply putting strips all the way across the tag.  It tears like paper and is so easy to use. Trim the sides flush with the tag. There are MANY greeting options from Endless Wishes.  This is one of many reason why this is my favorite Holiday stamp set.
5) Apply the two silver sequins and the white snowflake from Frosted Sequins (see tip at the bottom).
6) Add a ribbon.
Badda bing, badda boom.  You’re done!

***Tip for adhering the sequins***
I like using our Multipurpose Glue to adhere small items like these sequins and snowflakes.  But I don’t like getting glue from my fingertips onto the sequins.  It makes the sequins dull, not shiny.  And I like SHINY!
There is a product “out there” that helps you pick up tiny objects.  I made my own and here’s how.

Step 1) Apply 2-way glue to the eraser of a pencil.  Allow it to dry so that the eraser is sticky but releasable.
Step 2) Use the tip of the eraser to pick up the sequin and move it to your cardstock.
Step 3) Use the point of a second pencil to hold the sequin down while you remove the first pencil from the sequin.
Step 4) BE AMAZED!!!!!!! 🙂
