Well, the challenge was thrown down during the February Hostess Clubs and my Club members met that challenge and created wonderful artwork. Every member that created a project from the background paper created with the Flower Fancy stamp set during the February Hostess Club meetings and brought it to our March meetings was entered into a drawing for a free Stampin' Up paper pack.
Stamp Set: Flower Fancy
Inks: Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss (both retired In-Colors), So Saffron
Accessories: Variety added by the Club members
Created by Sheila Whisker...
Both cards above were beauties created by Sheila Whisker. I love how she used the punches and the Big Shot leaves.
Look how the black cardstock makes this POP! This is my sister, Sandy England's first creation and the inside is right beneath this photo. I think the eyelet border punch really makes it look so elegant.
Sandy England's butterfly looks like she will take flight. The double punched Butterfly is very pretty and goes great with Sandy's design. Love the use of pearls for accent.
Joyce McFarland made these cute Spring Seed Packets for each member of our afternoon Club. It just shows how many projects you can make with one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" stamped background paper. Joyce was the winner of the paper pack for the afternoon Hostess Club.
All of these projects use the same Flower Fancy stamped background paper and yet look so unique. Here, Sue Lepako uses her stamped background piece to create a 12" x 12" Scrapbook page of her "Grand-Pup".
Notice the stamped tissue paper that she punched using the 5-point Flower punch and used as accents. Excellent.
Miriam Peck added some "zing" with a little Almost Amethyst cardstock. She didn't have any of the retired colors, so she added a few flowers in the Almost Amethyst to tie the cards together and it turned out beautifully. Gives me Spring Fever.
Wendy Romeo created 6 cards using her stamped background page. It is like a One Page Wonder. The possibilities are endless and like, Wendy, the cards you make are for a variety of occasions.
Judy Dibert created 3 different color combinations and they are all lovely. It is exciting to see all the variety and punches used to accent these pieces of artwork.
Sue takes a break and tends to one of our Boston Terriers, Pup-Pup, who loves a good belly rub.
Leah Pepple added some sparkle to her card. Leah was the winner of the DSP for my Tuesday evening Hostess Club.
I love how my cousin, Shirley Wright used the Just Buzzin' By stamp set in conjunction with her stamped background paper. The black brads on the bees' little antenna make them really super cute!!!
Here is the St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold that our Great-Nephew, Samuel, sent to us. We are so proud that he is being home-schooled and that art is a big part of his life.
And one more pictures of our Boston Terriers before I close today. The Mama is on top...she is giving comfort to her 6 year old daughter because my husband was painting and blocked off an area to keep them out. They were not happy.
