February Card Class

I really loved this class … of course I say that about them all!  I would love for you to join us one day. We meet the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. You get 2 of each of the designs below plus the envelopes. Email me if you’re interested.

The first card was pretty much stolen from the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Blog. I loved how it looked and knew everyone else would too. This is gender neutral, which is hard to do! This card features one of the new Single Stamps in the Collection #4 Assortment. I hand drew a template for the sun and hand cut them. One stamp for like 6 bucks, some paper and glue and you’re golden!

This next card is my favorite because it’s so elegant. This card technique is called Triple-Time. I saw it first on fellow demo, Dawn Olchefske’s, website. She is amazing! If you would like measurements, email me and I will happily send them. You gather all the white and stamp on  it. In this case it was twice – both with background punches! We watercolored the poppies and separated the layers and matted them on the green. Just lovely!

Ok – now my favorite. (did I say that already?) This card uses the new By The Tide stamp set featured in our Spring Catalog. I am in landlocked Utah, but I really love the ocean. Not getting in it – but the sound, smell, seashells and good eats that come from it! This set really reminds me of the time when my family and I went to Nantucket and Maine. It’s too bad that I was too young to appreciate it at the time. Anyway – this is also pretty gender neutral.
