Oct Stamp Club

Yesterday was my monthly Stamp Club with my wonderful & fun friends!! I said this yesterday, but I just LOVE doing these club parties!! They are so much fun & it's a great time to just let all the stress just go away!

This month we did 3 projects...the first was a total fluke! I had seen a YouTube video on "Double Embossing", where you use 2 different embossing folders on one piece of cardstock to have to different patterns. It was so pretty but when I did it...it looked like poo!! LOL! She used watercolor paper and I think that was the difference! Anyway...I thought I would Google double embossing and see if anyone had done it with cardstock but found this video and fell in love with this technique! So this is what we did and I actually like this better than the first idea!! (All products in these projects are Stampin Up!)
And here are the directions I used....
I absolutely love this card!! I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder, silver embossing powder & Cherry Cobbler ribbon....

Our next project was an altered DVD case! These would make perfect Christmas gifts, birthday gifts or just as a thank you!
 And here is the inside....
I have seen these used as coupon holders too! Coupons on one side, shopping list on the other! Way too cool!! :)

And our last project was OMG so cool!! We used the Snowflake die from Stampin Up! and made snowflakes out of soda cans!!! Ok and beer cans too! :) Just cut open the can (be careful edges will be sharp!), run through your Big Shot (clear plate, die, can layed flat, clear plate, shim) So So cool!!!
Aren't they pretty?? These are Coors Light, Arizona Tea & Grape soda cans. So many different possibilities! So many colors!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed today's projects!! Be sure and come back tomorrow for Imagine-ation Monday and my last Halloween card of the year! :)

Until next time...
