May Stamp Night Projects - Elizabeth, Bumble Bee, Tri-Fold


Here’s the projects I created for my May stamp nights.  The first one features the Elizabeth stamp.  I’m really going to miss Concord Crush!  Stampin’ Up! has told us to hang onto these retiring colors though...they renovate their colors every 5 years or so, and we may see one or more of these colors become part of the core colors in the future (crossing my fingers for Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz!).

Then, I had a request for a punch art project, so I found this bumble bee using the Ornament Punch...isn’t he cute!  This is the recipe in our Technique book:

Ornament punch  - body
Large Oval punch - wings & stripes
3/4” circle punch  - head

I also made a 3x6 card and a 6x6 scrapbook page (we do 3 projects and a technique page).  My stamp night ladies can choose the card or page.  I also added a paper flower to the page. 
  

The flower is made with:
2 3/8” Spiral punch - 2 shapes
1 3/4” Spiral punch - 3 shapes

Spritz shapes with water to break down the paper fibers, crunch, uncrunch, stack, put brad in the middle, crunch up around the brad, ta-da...a flower!

Then, I made a masculine version of a Tri-Fold Shutter card to be used for Father’s Day or some other occasion for a guy.


For the Tri-Fold card:
 Score a 5 1/2 x 12 cardstock at 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10”
 Cut 1 1/2” in from each long side only between the 2” and 10” score lines
 Alternate mountain and valley folds on small strips and alternate on middle.
