September Stamp Club Projects

Better late than never, right?! Here are the stamp club projects we made this week. Everyone loves the Autumn Apparitions set! On the card, I twisted the pumpkin stamp to make the moon, and I stole this great idea from Tandra, thank you!

For the box, I've seen them cropping up all over blogs recently, most cuter than this one. I was working from memory at the crop I went to a few weeks ago, so this is what I came up with. The 2 pieces of black card black card stock are cut 3 1/4" by 9 3/4" and then scored at 3 1/4" from both ends. They overlap and you tie them together, very easy!

Also, the black circle "web" behind the spider tag on the box...they demonstrated at Convention, so I can't take credit for that either! I cut 2 1/2" circle, then punched around the outside edge of it with a 1/2" circle punch. Put your black circle about half-ways into the 1/2" circle punch, then punch around, right next to the previous punch, so you'll get sharp, spikey points on your web. Hope that makes sense!

This is the inside of the card:

Lastly, I thought I would share the Stamp Club Challenge prize that I made for the girls who participated in the challenge (see previous post). I'm really digging these clamshell packages repurposed with a new life. I made this in about 10 minutes, using Carte Postale embossed with white on the DSP and filled it with goodies from the Pretties kit. Lori was the lucky winner! She also shared with me, you can take apart the packaging and use it to make die-cut shapes, like with my Cuttlebug. I can't wait to try this too.

Okay, gotta dash! Thank goodness it's almost Friday! Have a terrific Thursday!
