Stamp club projects

This will be short because I am supposed to be packing. (Those of you who know me, though, will know that I will do anything short of climbing a ladder to get out of packing....)
Here's what we did last club night. I wanted to showcase products from the new catalogue, and the hostess had requested we do the Joy-fold card ( splitcoast tutorial).
For the blue card, we used all new In Colours and Wow Flowers. There is a line of piercing above the sentiment panel. The ladies made cards that were slightly better proportioned. This was my prototype and the sentiment panel is a little too wide.
Supplies (Stampin' Up only): paper and ink: whisper white, pacific point, kiwi kiss, tangerine tango, baja breeze; accessories: paper piercer, scallop edge punch, stamps: Heard from the Heart, Wow Flowers.

The other project was a Joy-fold card (see link above for scs tutorial), which opens twice and is closed by a hidden punched circle under the flower. One of the ladies wanted to know how to dye flowers from the Pretties kit with re-inkers so that's how we did it. The pink panel on their cards was the pale patterned pink sheet from Bella Rose, but I flubbed the stamp on it and needed the rest of the paper for club ladies, so mine is pirouette pink instead. I didn't have enough of this flower for everyone, but this card also looked nice with the next size down flower, set on top of the five-petal flower punch for a closure. One lady did this with a red flower, on a pink flower, on a red flower and it looked fabulous. The ladies could choose to dye their flowers Riding Hood Red or Pirouette Pink. Tip to demos: just use a tiny bit of water and add more as needed.
Supplies (SU only): paper: Bella Rose, Riding Hood Red, Pirouette Pink; ink: chocolate chip, other: reinkers, Pretties kit, bone folder.
Thanks for looking! I won't be back for a week or so. See you later!
Happy stamping.
