June Card Class

Hello everyone! Wasn't the Sweet November Stamp previews fun?! That Amy is just amazing! Remember that they go live for purchase at All That Scraps TOMORROW at 10 EST!!

Now, on with the show! Haha!

This month's Card Class uses the NEW "Splendor" designer paper and some uber-cute NEW stamps from Close To My Heart! My first class is already full, but my class on Wednesday the 16th is still pretty open, so if you live in the Seattle area let me know if you'd like to come!

For this first card, I totally CASE'd it straight from the Summer Idea Book! When my customers first saw this example in the Idea book, they all "Ooooo'd" and "Ahhh'd" and wanted to learn how to make the fun flower. So easy too! Just use a circle punch to punch out 3 circles and fold them in thirds to make a cone shape. Then glue them together by using a scrap of paper behind them. Fun, fun!

This second card is another CASE from the Idea Book. I totally LOVE this card!! The "Over The Rainbow" stamp set is so great and versatile. I've been way into clouds lately too. Aren't those NEW Splendor Designer brads the perfect complement?! Love 'em!

This last one I had quite a bit of trouble with. I really, really wanted to show how to do "stamp kissing", but I just couldn't pull it off with this stamp. Oh well. But! for this card class, I asked the attendees to bring some supply or embellishment that they've had hanging around forever and don't really know how to use it, or how to give them a new life.
So for this card, I used the good-'ol metal rimmed tag that was the "had-to-have" item years ago and the often forgotten clear apoxy "bubble". I combined them together to give a nice focus on the sentiment and also add balance to the card. Can't wait to see what things everyone brings to share. I will take their items and try to make cards using them in fun ways. I hope that this will be a great learning tool for them to feel more comfortable with using "iffy" products.
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! It was FINALLY sunny here! Bye bye rain!
