February Class

The February class is fast approaching, so I knew I needed to post the pictures of the projects.  We did Valentines in January, so this month we'll be making non-Valentine cards.

The card below is a triple stamp card that we'll make.  I used the Everything Eleanor stamp set and Bravo Burgundy cardstock.  The two ink pad colors I used are Bravo Burgundy and Crumb Cake.  I stamped the images on Very Vanilla card stock.

The second card we'll be making in class is an Easter card.  I used the Everybunny stamp set and some Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper.  

Another card we'll make uses the Just Believe and Papillon Potpourri stamp sets.  The butterfly is punched out and the wings are curved for some dimension.  There will be a selection of greetings from which to choose.  
The greeting stamp ("thank you") I used below is from the Sale-a-bration brochure.  You can choose one item from the brochure for each $50 of Stampin' Up! products you purchase between January 22 and March 22.  The stamp set I used below is from one of the free sets (there are eight stamps in that set).  Even the punch I used to punch it out is a free choice.  If you're thinking of ordering, this is a great time to do so.

If you're interested in purchasing any products, let me know and I'll be sure to get the Sale-a-bration brochure to you.  

Thanks for the visit.

Beginner Valentine Class

I'll be doing a Valentine class at St. John's Episcopal Church in Kirkland at the end of January for beginners.  I designed three projects for us to do.   I am keeping the projects simple since I don't know how many people will be attending yet, and the few people who I do know will be attending have never stamped before.

One card we'll make uses the note cards and envelopes set Stampin' Up sells.  I used the You are Loved stamp set.  It should be a fun, fast card to make.  I used some red glimmer paper to punch a small heart to place in the corner to add a little sparkle.  

We'll also make a teabag card in class.  This little card opens and holds a teabag on one side and a quote about tea on the other side.  The holder for the teabag is made using the Scallop Envelope Bigz.  It's perfect for holding a teabag!  And, I must tell you, whenever I make teabag cards, attendees have a lot of fun looking through all the teabag quotes I've printed out for them.

The third card we'll make uses the Delicate Doilies along with More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The ticket stamp set is from That's the Ticket.   I punched it out using the ticket punch. The heart stamp is from a retired set that I have.
