June 2011 class projects will be a lot of fun.

June 2011 class projects:

Card 2: Eastern Blooms Bedazzled

CARD: vanilla 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, fold over. Also 1 piece 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 for inside the cover, to cover the front of the card, backside

Set: Eastern Blooms for the 3 flowers stamped in Rich Razzleberry; Petal Prints for the open leaves stamped background, any words of your choice

Ink: 2010-2012 In Colors: Pear Pizzaz & ongoing color: Rich Razzleberry

Accessories: 1 3/8" square punch, scallop punch is an option; Dazzling Diamonds; clear packing tape.

Instructions: Punch out your squares or windows of your choice. Cannot be larger than the packing tape is wide. Place a piece of clear packing tape behind the windows, one piece across the back. I cut out the flowers and place them in the windows on the packing tape. Now pour on Dazzling Diamonds and shake off the excess. Using a roller, go over pressing the glitter into the tape, again tap off the excess. I placed the additional piece of vanilla in behind the window to cover the tape. Many did not want to do that so it looked like a window which is also very pretty and see thru. Hope this makes sense.

Card #1: Herb pots

Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Herb Expressions/R; Happy Together for the vine on the pots; Itty Bitty Backgrounds/R

Card: Cajun Craze layered with Marina Mist ( 5 1/4 x 4")
& W. Shite 2 1/2 x 4 5/8"

Designer Paper, cajun craze or your choice is 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"

Flower Pots: about 1 3/4 x 1". I free hand cut pots. Top rim uses the Window Word Punch.

Ink: Black, Marina Mist, Cajun Craze

Accessories: colored pencils, Large Oval Punch, XL decorative Label punch, daubers, twine or raffia, Window Word Punch

Card #3 Inches in Pink and Purple

Now the inchies are just so much fun and you'll have enough inchies background to go home and make a couple more cards. This card is in Melon Mambo with accents of Concord Crush. This is a fun process.

Sets: Just any sets you wish, words, images, solids and with open spaces, even alpha stamps.

Card: Melon Mambo with Concord Crush 2 1/4" x 3" and a Melon Mambo square 1 1/8 x 1 1/8" whisper white to do your stampin on.

Ink: Concord Crush marker. Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Daffodill Delight, Wild Wasabi, Blushing Bride. Images are all stamped in Concord Crush.
Accessories: Pop Dots, Crimper, Ribbon or yarn, Modern Label Punch

Instructions: Using the stamp pads as stamps, stamp with edges or solid part of stamp pad on a big sheet of paper or even a half sheet will be more than enough. I used all colors listed in Ink. Ten using the strong color, in this case, Concord Crush, I stamped my images on the background colors. No order, just random and in this case in one direction since I was using words. You'll need more images than you think so close is good. Now cut this background paper into 1 inch squares. I prefer using my paper cutter for this, no waste. Then mount your inches in any fashion you choose.

For the greeting, stamp on Whisper White. For the background, punch one more label in Concord Crush, cut in half and separate. Using a marker to edge anything not backed by this additional piece.

Thanks for stopping by.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog.

It's still a learning experience. If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month. For class dates go to my Stampin Up events calendar: http://www.joanlowder.stampinup.net/

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
