Birthday Wheel

Good Afternoon.  I hope y'all are enjoying your Sunday.  It's still cold here and we are supposed to get another 3-4 inches of snow today. :(

I finally joined my first monthly stamp club.  I have been wanting to do this for a while.  I have been researching the different clubs out there and I finally settled on one.   I decided to go with The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard.  I love her stamps and you can chose to join either the stamp club of the stamp and die club.  I chose the stamp and die club.  Each new set of stamps that you will get each month has coordinating dies to go with it. I really liked that idea.  As you know, I do alot of fussy cutting and having the dies is going to make it much easier for me.

I have two sets so far.  I have made a card from each set.  

The first one is Popcorn2stamp and it comes with one image of a popcorn container, three solid and three outlines of popcorn pieces and 7 sentiments plus an oval outline stamp.  

Isn't this hilarious?  I love it.  I stamped and die cut all the popcorn pieces, the container and the sentiment.  All of the 7 sentiments will fit into the oval.  I used papers from Snap by Simple Stories and some black and white baker's twine to make this card.

There is also a companion sentiment set Word4popcorn which has 14 sentiments and three polka dotted popcorn pieces.

The second set that I have gotten is called Spinner2stamp.  This one comes with the spinner base, the triangle shape, the spinner, 8 sentiments and 4 images to add to the triangles.

I stamped the base and spinner with Memento Tuxedo Black and die cut them.  I then used different shades of Memento Ink and stamped 6 of the triangles, stamped the sentiment and images and die cut them.  I used my Xron Tape thingy to add the triangles.  I used a white brad to attach the spinner.  The balloons are from a sticker set that I have had for a couple of years now.  Nothing like using up that stash. :)

The companion set for this stamp set is called More Spinner Ideas 2 Stamp and has 16 sentiments, a spinner with heart in the middle and three triangles with patterns.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I can't wait to see what next month's club set is.  Have a wonderful had and God bless.
