Some Tuesday Stamp Club Fun!!!

Whoa!!! Can you believe it?!?! Not only am I posting for the third time in as many days but I have actually kept to my word and posted something I said I would. Well I hope you are as proud of me as I am of myself- hahaha.

Last Tuesday it was time for monthly Stamp Club at my house. The girls and I have just finished our first six months of Stamp Club (which actually ran over about 9 months!!) and started again. Two girls from the first six months were unable to keep going (awww- bye Katherine and Tara xx) but I was overjoyed to have the wonderfully lovely and super talented Tanya Tahir become our newest member xx!

For this first "new" Stamp Club I wanted to make a really cute and special little project. Inspired by Bonnie Thurber's demo at Convention I decided to use the very cute "Share A Cup" stamp and create the project around that. I had also used the little stacked cups card when I created the Make & Take for our recent "A Klass Act" Team catch-up. Note to self and others though- If you are going to make this with a group of 7 eager stampers make sure you have more than one cup stamp :o). Thanks for being patient girls and a huge stamp to my super-wonderful Mum for letting me use her stamp. Love ya x

We started off making this little 3x3" box:

And then we went ahead and made 3 cute Love Note cup cards and 3 envelopes made from Designer Series Paper:

Each card was created differently:

This is my favourite little card. If you look closely you may be able to see that we used the glossy glitter that Bonnie showed us to give the cups a glittery shine:

Cute- Don't you think?!?!?!??!!?

I'm off to the country tomorrow! I'm very excited to be traveling an hour out of Perth to the little town of Toodyay to have a crafty sleep-over at my stampin BFF Hayley's house. What a joy a whole day and night of stamping, chatting, creating, eating, fun, drinking and more stamping. Yay!!!

Hopefully I will have some fab creations to show off when I get home.
