Pin It


Stamp Club Challenge

Well, I'm a little late in posting these, but wanted to share the fantastic cards some of my Stamp Club members made last month. Pictured above are the supplies they received: Old Olive Prints Pattern Designer Series Paper, Confetti Card Stock, Old Olive button and 5/8" Wide Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon. Their only instructions were to make a "fall" card, although I didn't write that down, so that was bad on the "teacher's" part!

Here is Beverly Mohler's card...great watercoloring and paper piercing...and loved the addition of the tab punch!

Here is Lori Franklin's card...ingenious use of the ribbon by fraying it to make the giraffe's hair! And she has a brand new baby niece in the family, so can't blame her for making a baby card!

This is Beth Houser's card...I forgot to add the Old Olive button in her supply packet, so she added her own! I love the way she did the ribbon with the fold-over and button on top. Also, just realized I should have photographed the inside, because the little tracks on the front of the card lead to a precious turkey stamped on the inside! So cute and clever!

Here is Michelva Evan's the addition of the Ruby Red card stock and lovely leaf punches!

Okay, back to work for me. Graded papers all day yesterday (when I wasn't sleeping!) week is the end of the 2nd six week period so grade cards will be sent out again. I'm determined to not be behind this time, and since I'm attending an all-day TAKS reading seminar next Saturday, I'm planning ahead (a rare occurrence for me!).

By the way, the school fall festival was a smashing success. As I mentioned, this was really our first school event, and the kids and parents really seemed to enjoy it. There was a large turn-out, and we raised a lot of money for the school. The kids really loved decorating the cupcakes...although not as much as throwing wet sponges at the PE Coach!

Hope you're having a great weekend and getting some stamping done! I've set aside 7-10pm tonight to squeeze some in, during my Sunday night shows, yeaaaa!
