Tuesday Night Card Class: January 25, 2011


Full Heart Punch Flower

I made this flower using the Full Heart Punch for the petals and the Blossom Petals Punch for the leaves!

To make a petal, punch out a heart and then fold it in half. A Stampin' Dimensional keeps the petal closed, but still allows for a 3D effect.

P.S. Have you noticed how often I am using the Red Glimmer Paper lately? I love it!

Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Ink: Real Red
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla
Specialty Paper: Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper, Red Glimmer Paper
Punches: Full Heart, Blossom Petals, 2" X 1-3/8" Oval, 1" Circle
Accessories: 1/2" Pear Pizzazz Stitched Poly Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Pages (or you can use Sticky Strip)



Eat Chocolate

Swipe your Crumb Cake ink pad over the raised polka dots for a vintage effect!  A few inches of satin ribbon adds a bit of sheen.

Stamps: Eat Chocolate
Ink: Crumb Cake
Markers: Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Punches: 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, 1-3/4" Circle
Accessories: 5/8" Early Espresso Satin Ribbon
Sizzix Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Tuesday Night Card Class: Jan 18 at 7 PM



Butterfly Card

What do you need to get started with stamping?  A stamp set, two or three ink pads, and card stock!  And when you're ready to take your projects to the next level, step it up with some of our fabulous punches.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Love Patterns (Special Promotion)
Punches: Butterfly, Scallop Edge Border

Pastel Shimmer

This card uses Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Stampin' Pastels on Glossy White card stock!  Be sure to let the Shimmer Paint dry completely before applying the pastels.  (If you're impatient, you can speed up the drying process with a Heat Tool.)

Also, it's not noticeable in the photo, but I distressed and then peeled apart the Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The end result is a tissue-thin layer with a soft texture!

Stamps: Elements of Style
Ink: Black Staz-On, Basic Black
Card Stock: Glossy White, Confetti Cream, Cherry Cobbler, Brushed Gold
Stampin' Pastels: Soft Suede and Early Espresso
Other: Sponge Daubers, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint



Springtime Vintage Floral Card

Stamp the main floral image in Not Quite Navy ink.  Next, run a Blender Pen over the outline while pulling the color in toward the center to get a watercolor effect.


Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Springtime Vintage
Punches: Eyelet Border
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon: Very Vanilla
Other: Blender Pen

Here is what the Springtime Vintage DSP patterns look like.  I am in love with the colors and the floral patterns
