Stamping and other wonderful things

There’s a group of stampers that meets at my house once a month…well, we call ourselves a stamping group and we definitely do stamp, but we also have a very good time.  We are a really diverse group but the things we all share are a love of crafting and a love of people.  There’s always a little teasing, a little story-telling, and a lot of laughing.   We met last night and here’s one of the cards we made:

Vintage Vogue Gate fold card

  • Vintage Vogue stamp set
  • Very Vanilla, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso card stock
  • Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso Classic Ink pads and Stampin’ Write markers
  • Real Red 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels, Blender pen and Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Big Shot and Top Note Bigz die

This card is really simple to make and a nice change of pace from a standard card.  Use a  quarter sheet of cardstock for the base and layer on  a piece of cardstock that measures 1/4″ less in both length and width.  Before you attach the two pieces together, insert the two flaps one on each side between  the layers and you’ve got the basic idea.

I didn’t include it in the list of supplies, but the Espresso circle in the center of the Real Red flower is an Owlie Bit.

Do you love to stamp?  Can you get to Maui once a month?  We’d love to have you join us…
