September 2012 class projects & supplies

Thanks to all who came to the Sept. classes and hope you enjoyed your cards.  If you have questions please contact me, jlowder1@bellsouth.net or call me 336- 764-3546


Set:  Just Believe and your choice of words


Card: So Saffron Rocks are of a brown. If you see streaks, I added those with the edge of my scissors. You’ll need one more ¼ sheet of cardstock to do the front so that you can adhere the ribbon to the back. If you use trim then you can do all of this on the front of the actual card.

Cardstock, So Saffron for the card. ¼ sheet of cardstock, same color for the front. Scraps for the tag. Any brown to tear to make the mountain from where your tree will grow.

Ink: Brown, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze

Accessories: Sponge, ribbon or trim, stampin Dimensionals



Set: Fine Feathers and words of your choice.

Card: Vanilla cardstock card

Accent side piece, designer paper or make your own. I used Vanilla. I’ll post a photo of handmade piece. I like it better with dragging color and then adding feathers.

Colors used: Pool party, C. Celery, Lucky Limeade & Indigo from ’11-13 in colors, Not Quite Navy. Stamped feathers in Not Quite Navy.

Peacock feather. I stamped in your favorite green above and then dabbed with Indigo. Once you cut it out, daub around the edges with Indigo for darker look. There is one stamped on envelope as well as inside the card

Words stamped in Indigo. Feather is raised up. On some I added a reinstone in center of feather.

On one you can see I stamped the feather very lightly in background. If you don’t have a light touch, you’ll need to stamp off first and then stamp randomly.

Accessories: Clear stampin block; daubers, stampin Dimensionals, perhaps a reinstone

Stamp Sets:   Pleasant Poppies, 2012;   A Happy Hello is from All Year Cheer 1, retired.


Cardstock card: Night of Navy with white insert with poppies. Front is any designer paper in bashful blue.

Poppies: I stamped the poppies on the circle as well as the white strip in black craft ink with clear embossing powder so you could color in.

Ink: Black craft pad, markers in Bashful blue (or colored pencils with blender pen), C. Celery or your choice.

Accessories: Clear stamping block F, Ribbon or trim, circle punch 1 3/8 and 1 ½, Designer paper, Stampin DImensionals, perhaps texture plate r folder, embossing buddy, clear embossing powder

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.
