Scripture Stampers–Something Old and Something New

Last night was our May stamp club meeting (I had to delay one week so we could visit our sweet Isabella) and the Scripture Stampers were in full force.  We made three cute projects and I loved each one.  Linda was our hostess and she chose Colossians 4:2 – the definitive verse about prayer.  I was not surprised because Linda is a dedicated prayer warrior…you absolutely want her on your team!  The scripture card I designed that will go into our sweet little scripture box used our theme designer paper, Springtime Vintage (old) along with Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, the Top Note die and Framed Tulips embossing folder.  We all love projects made with the Big Shot. 

I always try to make a little treat for the members each month, but yesterday I was stumped on ideas and could not decide what to do.  Then I had a brainstorm and made a quick trip to Dollar General and bought a bunch of 3.5 X 5 inch acrylic frames and got to work.  I knew I wanted to use the brand spankin’ new Flower Fest set from the Summer Mini and the new embossing powder on a project, so I got busy embossing and punching and cutting.  I didn’t get everything done before the gals arrived, so assembling the elements became our first project.  The sentiments are from two sets that are on the Last Chance list (tear) – Sense of Time and Simple Friendship.  Although they will be gone, they will not be forgotten.  The final project used all current products, including the fabulous Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and had a little twist.  After the image was stamped, we sprayed it with spray adhesive, covered with a used dryer sheet, then covered with Dazzling Diamonds (gorgeous glitter), cut the dryer sheet to size and popped up on our card.  Pretty, pretty.  Who knew?

Take a look-see- and as always, you can shop Stampin’ Up! 24/7 on my website here:

I am sitting here waiting not so patiently for Mr. Brown (UPS) to roll up with my expedited Stampin’ Up! order that will also have my copy of the new Idea Book and Catalog that goes live on July 1.  I’ve been to the door at least ten times…it’s on the truck and out for delivery and I am hoping he gets to us earlier than his usual last delivery of the day.  I know that patience is a virtue- just not today!

Thanks for visiting and before you go say hi! to sweet Isabella- all dressed up this week:
