Scarecrow canvas project

The Glittern Gals SU group met at my house Sunday to make this adorable Scarecrow canvas.
We used asw many Stampin Up materials as we could. Here is Sharon and Debbie working on the background of their canvases. They had to paint the edges black, cut their background dsp and stencil on the black polka dots using the stencil from the Build a Banner kit. They used Mod Podge to glue the dsp to the canvan, Then they added a square of burlap and a smaller square of a coordinating dsp.

 Luana is adding glitter to the big daisy that will embellish the scarecrows hat. The daisy was die cut using the big shot machine.
 Another view of Sharon and Debbie attaching the burlag to the canvas using Mod Podge.
In the other room Heather, Jennifer, Michele, Luana and Terri are working on their canvases. There was a lot of prep work that had to be done before they could begin attaching everything to the canvas.
Here is a group shot of the finished projects. They all followed the same dierctions and had the same pattern, but each scarecrows had is own unique expression. So cute!
Somehow I missed having a close up of Sharon's, sorry.
Can't wait to have the Christmas Canvas Class!
These fellows were made by the SASSSC girls at our retreat last month.

October stamp club projects

Wanted to show you what we did for stamp club this month.

First up is a file folder card made using the envelope punch board. I used designer paper from Sweater Weather. The leaf is from Gently Falling and I used the rock and roll technique to ink the stamp pad. I first inked the entire leaf with Crushed Curry and then "rolled" the edges of the stamp into Soft Sky. Stamp each leaf, reinking after each stamp. One of my ladies wanted to know where the green ink pad was, lol. I reminded her about what happens when you mixed yellow and blue. This beautiful card was a case from Catherine Pooler and I followed her wonderful video here.
 This card was cased from Amy O'Neil. You can see her original card here. I used Pistachio Pudding ink and cardstock for my card. I also used the new Artisan Label punch as the landing pad for each of my butterflies. The designer paper for the butterflies is from Venetian Romance. The cardstock colors are Island Indigo, Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Suede, Pistachio Pudding.
 This is a case from Patty Bennet and features the new Chevron punch. Quick and easy.
 This last card is from the fabulous Ms Jan Tink. It features the emboss resist technique.
Thanks to all the talented ladies that I used as my muse this month. You guys ROCK!
