June Card Class "New Friends"

Happy new Stampin’ Up! Catalog Year!  It was a busy June so I missed posting this before the month ended.  In June’s class we used a mix of old and new--a few critters with some florals too.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

20190623 June cards


Card 1: Elephants and Balloons

Let’s start with the card that features “old friends”.  This pair of elephants is celebrating a special occasion with these bright Poppy Parade balloons.  All stamps used were from the Little Elephant stamp set and the shapes were punched using the Elephant Builder punch and Balloon Bouquet punch.

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Little Elephant
  • Crumb Cake cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2"
  • Bermuda Bay cardstock 2 1/8” x 5 1/2"
  • Basic Black cardstock 3 1/4 x 4 1/4"

Card 2: Floral Impressions Panel Card

This card base uses one of the new In Colors – Purple Posy.  To create the panels, it was scored at 3 1/4” and 8 3/4” along the 11” edge.  Fold toward the center to create two panels—they are not uniform in size.  I wanted the larger panel to fit a 3 x 4” piece of designer series paper (DSP) to maximize the number of pieces I could cut from a single sheet.  And the DSP used is the beautiful new Perennial Essence DSP that is inspired by impressionist images.  The sentiment piece was attached with dimensionals only to the left side of the card.  The light colors of the flowers in the background on the whisper white cardstock were created by first stamping off.
