Triple Layer Gently Falling

I've been seeing these cards on Pinterest and decided to try one of my own.  They really are very easy but have a dramatic look.  Place your three layers of light card stock staggered on top of each other and tack them together.  Stamp the images (it will look bad), pull them apart and layer with the darker card stock.  The layering covers all the ugly areas of the stamping and you have a pretty quick card that looks like you put much more work into it than you really did!

Gingham Technique Pefrectly Preserved Cherries

Don't have a background paper that works for your color combination?  Make your own.  This gingham technique was easy to do.  Using your brayer, ink up the inside of your Stripes Embossing Folder.  Put your card stock in the folder and run it through the Big Shot like you would normally do.  Then reink your folder and turn the card stock a quarter turn before placing it in the folder again.  Run it back through the Big Shot and voila - you have a gingham background with texture too!

Keep Calm and Stamp On Free Standing Pop-up Card

Here's a free standing pop-up card we did this month in stamp club.  I had visions of doing this card when I first got my hands on this Carry On stamp set.  A lot of the ladies did the birthday version of this card which turned out pretty cute too!  When folded flat, it fits in a standard envelope, but when opened it stands on its own to display you work on the inside and out!  Click here for the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers.

Pennant Parade Scrapbook Layout

My scrapbook club ladies had a specific request last month.  So here is my layout for Tuesday featuring pennants.  I do believe most layouts will work for most pictures, and my scrapbook club is proof.  I can do a layout of a vacation as the sample, and when the night is over, we all have used the same layout for pictures of babies, racing, concerts, high school sports and family activities. However when I sat down to do my layout for this month, the pictures I had printed are of an enormous, elaborate church in Barcelona.  I didn't really think that would be the most appropriate use of pennants.  So I pulled some old extras from a past vacation to do a sample, and then I will use this layout again for more recent vacation pictures.

Lovely as a Tree Reflection Technique

September Stamp Club is tomorrow so I guess that means I am a little slow if I am just now posting an August Stamp Club project featuring the reflection technique.  After sponging the background with the two colors, we stamped the tree at the top.  Then we reinked the stamp, stamped it onto waxed paper and then pressed the waxed paper down below the tree to create the "reflection".  This is such a good stamp set to use to create the refection and a perfect time of year to do it!

Perfectly Preserved Flowers

Here's another Perfectly Preserved card.  I've posted cards with the pear and the apple and now here are the flowers from that set.  Maybe that versitility is one of the reasons it has been a popular set with my customers. The new woodgrain embossing folder adds a nice fall touch too.

Perfectly Preserved Jar Card

I am sure a lot of you are Pinterest readers too and may have seen several of these types of cards with the window lately.  This Perfectly Preserved stamp set just has so many possibilities.  For this card, stamp the jar on a Window Sheet and when you open the card, there is a pear down in the bottom corner.

More Scrapbooking Ideas

Here's Rae Anne's version of last week's scrapbook club layout.  I didn't leave enough room for her to do her journaling so she put pull tabs behind the pictures.  It's easy to do a nice layout with such a cute little boy!
