Forever Friends - June 2021 Class Sneak Peek!

Hi friends!  June's class is all about friends--people and critters.  We'll be using more of the the new stamp sets and products from the Annual Catalog.   Here is a sneak peek of the class cards:

20210626 Class sneak peek

You will be making 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs).  Your kit will include envelopes, paper, embellishments, and dimensionals to make the cards.  The modified class format is “stamp and go”.  Here is how it works:

  • Sign up for a time slot to stamp (up to 4 people each)
  • Come to my house to stamp your images, cut/punch/emboss as needed, pick up your kit, and pay for class. Please wear a mask.
  • Finish your cards at home. You will need markers/coloring tools in addition to adhesive to complete the cards at home.  On my cards, I used Stampin' Blends to color the images.  Here are the colors used this month: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Bronze.  These colors can easily be changed to accommodate the ones that you have.  

The class fee is $25.  You can also choose add-ons at a special price.  If you would like any of the option(s), let me know and I will order them for you:

        FREE with A & B: Choice of a pack of dimensionals or liquid glue ($5 value with shipping and GET)

Here are the time slots available, up to 4 people each.  You will be able to finish stamping prior to the end of the hour.

Summer Fun - May 2021 Class

Here are the cards from my Summer Fun stamp and go class.  They feature the new In Colors--Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent and Polished Pink--from the new annual catalog and other new products.  These cute puffins and woodland creatures will make you smile!  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

20210522 May class cards

 

Card 1: Woodland Creatures Party

This stamp set is designed to be stamped in 3 sections so that you can make a small tree or tall tree.  On this card, we created 3 separate sections by scoring at 4” and 6 ¼”, which creates an accordion fold.  Then used the Stamparatus to line up the images so that when the 3 sections are stamped, it becomes a tall tree when the cardstock is unfolded.  See the photos below for the folded and unfolded images.  Then color away!

Card 2: Puffin with Cake

This little puffin is dancing in with a cake to celebrate a special occasion.  The cake was stamped with the puffin and also on a separate piece of basic white cardstock.  Then the plate and cake were cut-out (excluding the candles) and attached with a dimensional over the stamped cake image.  Color the images.  I also used Basic Black Stampin’ Blends to touch up the black on the puffin as needed.  The large flower flourish was attached with liquid glue (or you can use a glue dot).  Ready to celebrate!

Card 3: Party Puffin

This little puffin is ready for a party.  The little wrapped fish he is carrying was stamped on a separate piece of white stock and cut out.  Color the images including touching up the puffin with basic black as needed.  The string the fish is hanging from was drawn using a black fine point pen/marker.  Then the fish was attached near the end using a mini dimensional.  What a special gift!

Card 4: Best Puffin

This little puffin says you’re the best!  It’s a panel card, scored 2 1/8” from each side along the 8 ½” edge.  The DSP on the left panel was attached flush to the edge (the side closest to the heard).  The right panel was stamped with flowers.  The heart was punched from Basic White first, then the puffin and words were stamped.  A stem for the flower was drawn with a dark green marker and the images were colored, including touching up the puffin with basic black as needed.  The little flower was attached using liquid glue.  So sweet!
