Ok, as promised, I’m FINALLY posting those pictures from Stamp Club with all the variations of my Rainbow Happy Watercolor card (over on the right of this post).
I have to admit, one of the things I love about stamping with other people in my classes is that I get to see some awesome ideas that I would NEVER have thought of on my own. I have some folks who love making exactly the card I created, and that makes me happy because I know they liked the card and enjoy it. But then, there are some folks (Elise and Tanya – I’m looking at you!) who make it their mission to make it somehow different than the sample. And I think it is fun to see what they come up with as well. I know they like the inspiration and sometimes I end up loving their card so much more than mine!
I liked the idea of letting everyone play with the Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon (another item retiring at the end of the month) and the new Scallop Tag Topper punch (which IS carrying over into the new catalog, yay!) But when I put it all together, it just didn’t feel right to me. So, I mixed it up.
The funny thing, I showed them this card first and most of the gals in club LOVED it! Guess that goes to show just because something isn’t your style, doesn’t mean it isn’t theirs. : )
But see, this card used one of the flowers and I wanted to prove I could make a card with this set without the flowers!
Now, lets see what everyone else made, shall we?
This was a fun lemon-lime card made by Janine S. Isn’t that fun how she did the hearts in the corner?!
And this was another glittery version by Saundra W! She totally went outside the box, which I thought was great. But I really liked how she mixed and matched the hearts with the splotches.
And, finally this version by Shannon L. Mostly the same as the original with a fun variation on the hearts.
There was one more that didn’t use the hearts or that sentiment (it used the “psst…” sentiment on the outside and the happy on the inside), and she had the rainbow splotches not quite in a line along the bottom. It looked AWESOME but I totally forgot to grab a photo of it before she left for the night. Oh well. But hopefully you had fun with the cards I DID get posted.
And if you are local to the Seattle area and would like to join me for my monthly Stamp Club, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! It’s a great group and one of my favorite classes each month.
