Look What I Found!

Happy New Year! As I was going through my photos, I discovered my November Stamp Club cards, which I apparently never posted. I also have my December Club cards that I need to post too. So, here are the cards we made at our November club.

This first is actually a gift card holder. I found very good directions on Dawn Olchefske's blog. I can't find the direct link now, but you can email me ( if you want the directions. I have them in a Word document. {Santa Gift Card Holder recipe}
Stamps: Deer Friends, Polka Dot
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White Craft
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: circle punches, scallop circle punch
This Thanksgiving type card is a case of Sharon Johnson. I would link you to the original card, hers was way cuter, but apparently Splitcoast has changed their format slightly. When I print out cards I want to case, I simply include the stamper's name. If I case their card, I go to the gallery for the particular stamp set and search for their name. I guess I can't search that way any longer.
I like this card because it's a pocket card. This one uses a 5.5" x 8.5" piece of cardstock, which is then scored and folded to create the pocket. If you change the dimensions on this card, you can create a smaller version that would also make a cute gift card holder.
{Thankful Thoughts recipe}
Stamps: Thankful Thoughts
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: black brads, aqua painter, round tab punch, Classic inks for watercoloring

I cased this next card from Jenn Diercks. I like this one because it's simple and easy to mass produce. Think Christmas cards for next year. Jenn's card had some paper piercing, and I thought another way to dress it up would be to add some glitter.
{Merry Christmas recipe}
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, All Holidays
Ink: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgandy
Paper: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke
Accessories: 5/8" burgandy ribbon

I will make my best effort to get back on track with blogging here in the new year! :-)
