So last week while I was lying in bed drifting off to sleep one night I cam up with an idea for a new class. A Quick Cards class. I had been working on my challenge card for the Create with Connie & Julie class and I was using the Happy Moments stamp set. It was hard to create only one card when there were four great images in the stamp set – so I actually made four cards and then started thinking that I could turn this into a Quick Cards class. It would be all cards, quick, simple – something for beginners or those that haven’t done much stamping or when you are short on time.
And here is my first class…
Quick Cards class - March 2nd
Quick Cards Class – Happy Moments
When: Tuesday, March 2nd
Time: 10:00 am and 7:00 pm
You are invited to join me for my new Quick Cards class. This month we will be using the Happy Moments Sale-A-Bration stamp set and doing basic Watercoloring on these quick and easy cards.
You will be making 4 cards with matching envelopes.
Please bring adhesive (like snail) and some scissors (like our paper snips).
The class fee is $10.
Please RSVP by end of day on 2/27.
I hope you can join me and come have some fun!
I wanted to do some more challenges and decided to make a Thank You card. I got the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called For All You Do a couple of months ago. Whenever I saw other people use this stamp set I just loved the results. I don’t think I’ve seen anything with this set that I didn’t like. But now that I have it I haven’t used it much – I’ve been working on all the different holidays for the last few months and haven’t done much with flowers. So I pulled it out last night to use for the challenge I found. I found Pals Paper Arts and they had a sketch challenge (PPA24) and I decided to pair that with a color challenge (#105) from the Stamping 411 blog.
Stampin’ Up! supplies:
- For All You Do stamp set
- Tempting Turquoise card stock, ink and marker
- Brilliant Blue card stock and ink
- Green Galore card stock and ink
- Whisper White card stock
- Basic Grey ink
- Vellum paper
- Big Shot
- SU Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
- Color Spritzer Tool
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
- Playground Designer Buttons
- Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads
- Paper Piercer & Mat pack
I used the Rock-n-Roll technique on the butterfly – inked it with Tempting Turquoise ink and then rolled the edges in the Brilliant Blue ink. I used a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose adhesive on the body of the butterfly to attach a piece of Vellum paper. Then I cut the butterfly out – cutting the card stock and vellum at the same time. The Tombow glue dries clear so it worked well on the butterfly. I pulled the vellum paper up for the wings.
I did realize after I made my card that the Stamping 411 color challenge was supposed to be a kids card but I missed that and just used the colors.
Thanks for stopping by today.
