May Stamp club cards

I'm always trying to come up with something new and fun for my stamp club to do. I saw this stamp set and Close to my heart did these really cute layouts using it 1 boy, 1 girl. This typically boy set becomes girly with a color scheme change and some bling. Of course it always helps that I loved this set since I opened the catalog and thought it would be adorable for my nephew. After making these cards I think it's just as great for girls especially those "tomboys", but I'm pretty sure any girl would love these cards. I started off with just plain 12x12 Kraft colored paper. I diecut it on my cricut using one of the card shaped on art philosophy (that I changed to be your standard size 4-1/4x5-1/2inch card. I then took the bone border stamp from the "roar" stamp set and stamped it multiple times in colonial white ink the I stamped my dinosaur in Pear ink(boy) or Smoothie ink (girl) and the sentiment in sunset (boy) or black (girl). My next thing I did was border the colonial white cardstock with Dutch blue (boy) or Tulips (girls). I then hand dyed the white embroidery thread with sunset ink and hand dyed white seam binding with smoothie ink. Add a button and your done. They came out pretty cute.
Pin It Now!
