June 2010 Stamp Class

Another month passes. School is out for the summer, and many folks are taking long vacations. We just have a short trip to Palau this year so I will continue to offer classes for those who remain on island.

This first bridal card (above) uses the scallop square die cut on my Big Shot machine. It makes for a smaller card but it's lovely. And if you mail the square card in a regular envelope, it won't cost any more than regular postage. Some of the gals in class added glitter instead of the versamark shading and it looked lovely as well!

Rich Razzleberry and Pretty In Pink are a fabulous color combination. The Petal Pizazz stamp set and large silver brads complete the card.

A sand shaker card! Even adults cannot resist the urge to shake this card whenever they hold it. LOL. Remember the trick to putting together a shaker card easily is to add the dimensional dots closely so that no sand can slip through any holes. To add the sand, remove the adhesive's backing on THREE sides only so that you can pour in the sand and then when it's all perfect, remove the backing from the last side and seal the sand inside!

The hydrangea is a NEW HOSTESS SET in the catalog debuting in July. It is lovely and *so* easy to get a great image. Fast, easy and simple! I love it. We ran the stamped layer through the Big Shot on a texture plate *after* stamping to get the diamond embossed background.

And this last card was CASEd from the Stampin' Up! demonstrator's magazine. It uses the new Pear Pizazz and Marina Mist colors (which I totally love.) And of course, more texture with the Big Shot.

Please join me for my next class! I will be doing TWO classes in July. . .one for Christmas cards, and one to debut the new catalog!
