April Stamp Club

Wow,  What a busy week it's been.  Which is why I haven't had time to post.  With work still being pretty crazy, that usually means overtime.  Then I had a Baby Shower to attend, Stamp Club and then a Wedding Shower today.  Whew !!

So I thought I would start with Stamp Club first and in the upcoming week, I'll show you some things from the Showers. 

Per the request of the Ladies in my Stamp Club we made an awesome Chocolate Box.  This idea comes from my fellow demonstrator Brenda Cardinal.  I actually attended her class back in January just so I could learn how this was made.   Isn't this too cute !!!

This is an open view, so that you can see the drawers pulled out about half way.

This is the closed view.  We had an awesome time making these.  As you can see our theme this month is Mother's Day.   I'm checking with Brenda about posting some of the dimensions.  But basically this cute Chocolate Box is made with the Matchbox Die.  You need 4 of these to make the drawers that hold the Chocolate.  Also used is the Scallop Square Die, the Hearts Collection Framelits, the Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Delightful Dozen stamp set, Cheerful Treat Designer Paper, Concord Crush and Whisper White cardstock, and Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon.

Then we made a Mom's Day Card to go with the Chocolate Box. 

Here's the closed view of this adorable card.
This is a case of a card that Lorri Heiling shared on her blog.  When I saw this cute card I knew we had to do this for our Mom's Day card this month.  Lorri is quite creative when it comes to Punch Art. 

Here's the open view.
It uses the " Packed for Mom " stamp as the background in Whisper White Craft ink. 
"Curvy Verses" and the "Swak" stamp set are used for the inside of the compact.
Blushing Bride, Basic Black and a scrap of Whisper White, Brushed Silver and Regal Rose cardstock.  Lots of Punches are used to make the compact and the lipstick.  Modern Label, Word Window, 3/4" Square (retired),  1 3/4" Circle Punch, Ornament Punch, Scalloped Edge Border Punch along with the Alphabet Simple Letters Dies.
         It's Time To Say Goodbye to the Old Favorites!

               You can see the retired stamp set list HERE.

This is by far, the LARGEST LIST that Stampin Up has ever presented, with over 300 items!...They decided with the NEW catalog format, size and date of release, it was also a great opportunity to revamp the entire content, so, while you may be sad that so many are leaving - Be JOYFUL, that we are getting a WHOLE CATALOG of new exciting Products!......these stamps will no longer be available when the new Annual Catalog goes live June 1st, and sometimes they also sell if you have a favorite on this list, consider ordering soon.

A BIG Thank You to Brenda and Lorri !!!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend !!

Happy Stamping !!!
