Pop & Fizz - February 2024 Class

Here are the cards from my Pop & Fizz class.  The stamp sets and products are from On-line Exclusives (Simply Sparkling and Fluffiest Friends) and Sale-A-Bration (Heartfelt Hellos, Trusty Toolbox DSP, Sunny Days DSP).  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

Card 1: Fruit Soda

The Simply Sparkling stamp set available through on-line exclusives includes all of the stamps that were used on these cards.  I used the strawberry and cherries, but there are more fruits in the set too.  The bubbles were made from the coordinating dies and you will see more of the cool shapes in one of the cards for March’s class.

20240217 cherry soda card

20240217 strawberry soda card

Tips:

  • Make the most of your cardstock by using the Smoky Slate card stock backing piece to die cut the bubbles from before you attach the stamped Basic White cardstock.
  • Use the small blending brush on the Petal Pink Classic ink pad to add color to the soda can. Apply to cardstock in circular motions.
  • Use the Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends on the leaves and Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends on the fruit so that it has a soft look.

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Simply Sparkling*
  • Dies: Simply Sparkling*
  • Sunny Days DSP 3 x 4” (SAB item)
  • Poppy Parade cardstock 8 ½ x 5 ½”

Card 2: Toolbox

Here is a card for the guys.  This sample is for father’s day, but it can easily be made for a birthday, retirement, thank you, or other occasion by just swapping out the sentiment.  The tools were cutout from paper included in the Trusty Toolbox DSP.  This is a panel card, with the left being 3 ¼” wide and the right 2 ¼” wide.  Photos of the front and opened card are shown below.

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Heartfelt Hellos (SAB item)
  • Basic Black cardstock 4 ¼ x 11” scored at 3 ¼” and 8 ¾” for card base, 1 x 2 ¾” for backing for sentiment

  • Classic Ink Pad: Copper Clay

 

Card 3: Gardening Cat

This is a rocker card.  You may have seen them being made with various circle dies--this one uses Deckled Circles.  They are fun to stand up on your table or desk and tap on the end to rock.  Because the cat is mounted slightly to the right, the card at rest leans slightly to the right.  You can adjust to the center by using a smaller sentiment.

20240217 cat rocker HMD card

20240217 cat rocker HB card

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Fluffiest Friends*, Heartfelt Hellos (sentiment; SAB item), Biggest Wish (sentiment)

Card 4: Honey Bear

Here is the cute bear from the Fluffiest Friends bundle. The arched opening and all of the other shapes (branch, leaves, grass, and hive) were cut using dies in the bundle. 

20240217 bear card

Tips:

  • Stamp the bear on Pecan Pie paper and just accentuate using blends.
  • Stamp the honey pot section of the bear image on Basic White cardstock. Then cut out the image with snips.  With a craft knife, cut around the front arm of the bear to create a flap to tuck the honey pot underneath and attach with a dimensional. 
  • Color the bee hive opening with the dark Daffodil Delight blend so that it is more visible.
  • Attach the bee hive to the pool party card front using a dimensional at the top of the hive.
  • Attached the bear to the pool party card front using mini dimensionals along the bottom left corner of the arched opening.

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Fluffiest Friends*, Bee my Valentine (for sentiment)
  • Fluffiest Friends Dies*
  • Pool Party cardstock 5 ½ x 8 ½”
  • Basic White cardstock 4 x 5 ¼” for inside of card
