Next Class.... Thursday,February 9th.

Here are the samples of the 3 cards we will be making at my next Stamp Class. I had a request for wedding cards so we will be making 2 wedding cards and 1 Valentine's Day card.
This card (above) uses the new stamp set, Love and Laughter from the new Occasions Mini catalog. You can view this set by clicking on the Occasions Mini catalog over on the right side of my blog. I used Whisper White cardstock, black ink, and white vellum cardstock as the overlay. I stamped the dress image and sentiments on the whister white cardstock. Then, using the vellum, laid it over the top of the card giving it a soft subtle look. I also used Stampin Up's 5/8 inch white whisper white satin ribbon for the bow at the top of the card This card is so simple to make but gives an air of elegance that is just right for any bridal occasion.

The second card uses Concord Crush and Very Vanilla cardstock. The butterflies are cut out of Pink Pirouette cardstock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die on page 216 of the Idea Book and Catalog. I used Elegant Lines (pg. 219) embossing folder to emboss the Very Vanilla Cardstock. Basic Pearls were added (page 198) on the butterflies.

This Valentine's Day card was so much fun to make.It's a Pop Up card (see next picture for inside). I used I {heart} Hearts set (pagae 46) on Whisper White and Ruby Red cardstock. I used Ruby Red, Regal Rose, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red ink for the hearts. The Lace Ribbon Border punch (pg. 211) was used to make the white border across the top of the card. I also used some scraps of designer paper to punch out a few min hearts using the minin heart punch on page 210.

I cut out several hearts from the I {heart} Hearts stamp set along with a large heart punchusing the Full Heart punch on page 210. The pop up secret will be taught during this class. The sentiments "with all my (heart)" come from the set With All My Heart, page 47.

This class is $5 and will be held on th 2nd Thursday of February. Reply to this post or send me a note if you'd like to attend.
