November 2010 Class projects

I am short on time tonight but I didn't want to wait any longer to show you what we made at our last class.

Mini milk carton bird house. I inserted a battery powered tea light inside to get the glow. I posted two pictures so you can see how it looks with the light on and off. Isn't it just adorable. Thank you to the person who originated this idea and posted it, allowing us to copy and share!

Love the look of this card with the penguin looking at Santa flying over. If I find the blog of the demo who shows how to create this penguin I will post it for you soon. The stamp set is from Wandering Words and Serene Snowflakes.
Cute little snowmen. The stamp set is called Line Up.

This is a card I tried copying the original that is in the catalog. I think it came out cute (not counting the oops in the corner when it fell into my blue ink for the snowmen) but I think I love the one in the catalog much better. Don't know why they look almost identical except for a few small changes.

Well there you have it. November card class. If you have any questions of instructions for any of the projects you just seen please send me an email.
Thanks again for stopping by.

September Workshop 2010

Here they are, the projects from this months workshop. I hope you enjoy and if you would like to recreate any of the projects please email or phone me and I can either prepare a kit for you to take home or we can schedule a time to get together where I can show you step by step how to recreate these beautiful projects.
This card I have been seeing online and just love how cute it is! The only stamp used on this project was from the Watercolor Trio and that was just to stamp Happy Birthday inside. We used the Modern Label punch for the drawer fronts, half of the Curly label punch to create the look of legs on the front of the dresser, Two step bird punch for the leaves, Scallop edge border punch and the Itty bitty shapes punch pack for the flowers. On each of the flowers I added the new Basic Pearls and the drawers I added dimenionals and brads

The Because I care card I cut a mat the same size as the whisper white paper then trimmed the middle out. I then laid my mat on the white card stock and sponged with Crumb Cake. Next I stamped the flower from the Because I care set and 5 of the small flower that comes in the set. I took my real red marker and just scribbled my color across the flower not being careful, just quickly covered the flowers and then did the same with the old olive marker for the leaves. After that I carefully cut out the flowers. Using dimensionals I pop up the 5 small flowers. Glued the large bodied flower to my card, stamped my sentiment and added the ribbon and brads. ***My brads were not originally black. Because I needed black and didn't have any I dipped some dark blue brads in versa mark and then into some black embossing powder and heat set them. Taaaa-Daaa black brads!!*** After all was said and done I took a white gel pen and added the dots to each of the flowers.

The box was created using the Box #2 die for the Big Shot. The embossed image on the belly band came from the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder also for the Big Shot along with the Little Leaves sizzlit die for the leaves under the roses. The roses were made using 3 punches from the Fancy Flower punch. I had found a great tutorial online for them, the lady did an awesome job giving step by step instructions. Then added the sentiment on the Word Window and Modern label punch. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Another great set to have!!

This final card was our quick and easy card. The stamped images are from the level 2 hostess set called Apple Blossom. We used old olive, early espresso and Cajun craze ink, old olive satin ribbon and a clear rhinestone brad. Very cute and super simple!

That's it. Those are the projects for September. If you have any questions or would like better instructions please let me know.

Thanks again for stopping by. I hope that if your in the area you will join us next month for some fun and stamping. Until then HAPPY STAMPING!!

August 2010 Workshop

Here are the projects for this months workshop. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. I hope you enjoy what we created this month!

Cute little frog and lady bug for those little critters in your life. We used Always Artichoke, basic black and whisper white for the frog and real red, whisper white and basic black for the lady bug. The frogs punches consisted of small oval, large oval, 1 3/4" circle, 1/4" (non stampin up), 1/2", 3/4" circles and the retired flower trio punch. The lady bug punches consisted of 1" circle, 1 3/4" circle, 1/4" (non stampin up) circle and 1/2" circle. The bodies are 2 1/2" that can be cut using the circle scissor plus.

This anniversary card Was created using very vanilla card stock, basic back, and the new daffodil delight. The flower image is from the Friends never fade stamp set and the Happy Anniversary image is from the teeny tiny wishes set. We also used the curly label and eyelet border punch along with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.

Hooo Loves you? I love you. =-) Aren't these little owls too cute? My vision of the female and male were different from the other ladies at the workshop, but that's ok. I thought the little orange vested one looked like the female but the ladies flipped the green vest over which had a floral print on it and said their girl was the green floral printed vest. Even my girls disagreed with me. I thought the orange color and design looked like a summer dress. Oh but anyways it was fun and lets get onto what was used! The card stock used are chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, old olive, pink pirouette, soft suede. Punches used are two step owl, scallop edge and two step bird punch. Stamped images are from Three little words and Things I love. We lined them up using the stamp a ma jig.
This final card we used early espresso, marina mist, certainly celery and whisper white. The stamped images are from the Aviary set and teeny tiny wishes. We used the scallop border punch, Filigree designer brads and the square lattice embossing folder.

My daughters card

Here is a card my daughter put together. I needed to make a card for my folks for their anniversary but was so caught up in the normal day to day things that I just couldn't find the time to sit and create a card. My daughter wanted to make something with my things and so I asked if she wouldn't mind making g-ma and g-pa a card. This is what she came up with. The only help she really got from me with this card was showing her how to use things like the stamp-a-majig, big shot and tying a ribbon. she chose the colors and design etc. I think it came out awesome. I am very proud of her and very thankful for her help in completing one of my tasks! Good Job Ali!!

July 10, 2010 Workshop

I'm sorry it has taken so long to post new projects we've done. June I didn't have a workshop because we went on vacation and this month I had my normal monthly workshop but left the next day to visit family in Oregon. So I have fallen behind. So anyways here are the projects created for July's Workshop.
This card was created using the Elements Of Style set from the Summer Mini. The colors used were very vanilla, soft suede and crumb cake (originally called kraft). For the ribbon I ran a line of sticky strip across under the very vanilla and used my piercing tool to lift the ribbon as I pushed down the other side to create these pleats.

This card is so cute! I just love the awning over the store window. Stamp set used here was the Sweet Scoops also from the Summer Mini. Colors used were Pretty in Pink, whisper white, chocolate chip, creamy caramel (now retired) certainly celery. I also used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the ice cream scoop with the cones. If your not good at lining up the two and don't have the stamp-a-ma-jig then you could always stamp the cones then from another piece of paper stamp the ice cream cut them out and pop dot them above the cones.

This little note pad was created using the Beautiful Butterflies Big Shot die. I used printer paper for the inside sheets and chip board for the front and back cover. To hold it all together I used a 1 inch book ring with some rich razzleberry ribbon to fancy it up.

The final card I used some of the new colored paper. This color is called marina mist. The outlined flowers were created by stamping with versamark sprinkled with white embossing powder then heated until set. I did the same thing with the solid flower on whisper white card stock then using a sponge added some certainly celery and marina mist to make the flowers pop. This stamp set is called Fast & Fabulous. It is a level 2 hostess gift.

I hope you enjoyed these projects. If you have any questions please feel free to email me or if you would like dimensions. Thanks for stopping by.
