What you receive when you purchase Stamp Club 5, Background & Borders.

Stamp Club #5 - 18 Stamps
Stamp Club #5 - 18 Dies

Set 1 - Clean and Simple
To kickstart my projects, I went straight in with some inky Distress Oxide Blends and die cut a few simple word panels. Add a little white/black in splatter and sequins to finish. 
Top Top - die cut your word on both panels to ensure perfect colour alignment. 
Set 2 - Die/Stamp Repeat Patterns
If you look closely you will see the card on the right is a stamped pattern and the card on the right is a die cut pattern. The ink blends and words are a little different but how fun is this to have such similar repeating pattern sets! 
Project 3 Die Embossing Plates
By using the circular die embossing plates, you will create a wonderful pattern. You can then add colour with Nuvo Aqua Flows to make the design pop. Simplicity is beautiful. 
Set 4 - Repeat Patterns + YouTube Tutorial 
Do you ever obsess over one element in a set? That's what happened to me when I stamped our this 1/4 inch ladder stamp and I couldn't stop! haha 
Repeat stamp using any stamp platform multiple times. Watercolour and die cut the tag to create these great tags. 
The pattern is so effective and is my favourite project. Not only is it easy to replicate, you don't have to be an amazing colourist to have fun with stamps. It would be great if you are into journaling as well! 
I could have carried on for a week straight making cards with this set. Seriously! 
I've shared about half of what I've made. There was just to much for one blog post, so I'm sharing part 2 tomorrow. Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hop that I've given you a few ideas with this instalment of Stamp Club.
Your next stop on the hop will take you to the incredible Laura Bassen!

  64. My name is Thomas White, from United states, i have been Herpes positive and it is just like been through hell; well special thanks to God almighty for using Dr Twaha, the greatest Herbal doctor in curing my herpes disease. I was diagnosed of this disease in the year 2004. Although I was taking my medications I was not myself. Until a few weeks ago. My friend came to me and told me that he saw many testimonies on how Dr. Twaha  cured people Herpes disease. Although I never believe in herbs, I said to myself "seeing is believing" I took his name and searched it on GOOGLE, I saw many testimonies myself. Quickly, I copied his email: drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com I emailed him, he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he sent me a message  and told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the cure for me and he told me that it will cost me some money which i sent to him because I need the cure urgent,  He bought the items and prepared a cure for me, then he sent the parcel to me through courier delivery service. I paid the courier services, I got my parcel, it was a bottle of ointment as described by Dr,Twaha After taking the ointment he told me to do, the herpes test and the result came out negative. Quickly I messaged him and told him what happened he congratulated me. I promised to tell the world about him.

  65. I GOT CURED OF HERPES WITH THE HELP OF DR OGU I Am from North Carolina, United State. I caught genital herpes from my ex boyfriend who never had any symptoms of herpes . I had it for 4 years ,and it has literally affected my life before I got cured. People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation, herpes has long term effects on health. The stigma attached to this virus by ignorant people is ridiculous. Most people have herpes in one form or another but they might not be aware of it. I would like to advise people on how I got rid of my herpes by using Dr OGU herbal medicine. I saw a comment posted by a woman from Germany on the internet that she got rid of her herpes with the help of doctor OGU. I was so happy when I saw that post. i quickly collected the doctor OGU contact email and I emailed him. Within 1 hr he responded to my email. i explained things to him and he told me not to worry that he will help me. i ordered for his medicine product which was sent to me via DHL. that was how i got the herbal medicine and i used it as i was told for the period of 6 days which is twice a day ( morning and at night before going to bed) .after 8 days, i found out that the herpes was no more and this was also confirmed by my doctor. if you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cure, kindly contact doctor OGU Patrick via this email ; drogugusolutionhome@gmail.com or text him via: +1 719 629 0982 .

  72. Being Herpes Patient can be one of the most difficult experiences you go through in life. You may feel scared, sad or even angry – this is OK, and a completely natural part of coping with something that can be life changing.
    It will probably take a while for the news to sink in. My name is Janey cooker and i am from the United States, I remember spending so much money buying drugs from hospitals hoping that I will be cured from HERPES INFECTION, but all to no avail. I contacted so many doctors and they prescribe medicine for me which they indeed tried their best but was unable to provide for me a possible cure, luckily i saw a comment about a herbal doctor, (Oyama) am always forever grateful after using his herbal medicine i was cured if you are out there kindly reach him WhatsApp or email +2348108264684 droyamasolutiontemple@gmail.com
