Did you notice all of the a la carte stamps in the front of the Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog? They are on pages 18 – 20 and are all individual stamps covering a variety of occasions and the are all under $10!
One that stood out to me in this new catalog is called On the Green. It is a golf themed stamp. My husband Greg has played a little bit of golf here and there over the years but this year he has really gotten into it. Now that seems to be his main hobby and he is playing a lot. Ryan (my 14 year old) is also learning to play golf and he is good enough that he goes with Greg and the other men to play on the weekends. So because of all the golf I wanted to get this stamp.
At Convention I met KatyZamer from TN and she had the perfect swap card using the On the Green stamp. I decided to use her idea for one of my club projects. I made only one change – I layered it on a Crumb Cake card base and only created a half panel of the Wild Wasabi textured piece. Katy’s card had the whole front of the card as textured Wild Wasabi. I also gave the girls the option to use the So Many Thanks stamp instead if they didn’t need a golf themed card. I can’t find my sample right now so I don’t have a picture of it – but when I find it I’ll post it. Yep my craft room is a huge mess right now and I need to spend some time cleaning and also creating. And I need to get my newsletter out – I’m behind on that too!
