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!

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!

Sweet Treats - January 2023 Stamp Class

Hope you are having a great start to 2023!  Here are the cards from my Sweet Treats stamp and go class.  All of the cards feature the Dandy Designs designer series paper from Sale-A-Bration plus something sweet—milkshakes, sundaes, cherries and cute little owls.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

Card 1: Chocolate Milkshake

This card features the Share a Milkshake bundle with two-step stamping along with the Dandy Designs designer series paper (DSP).  The glass was stamped in the lighter color first (Fresh Freesia), then the darker color (Gorgeous Grape).  Next the milkshake top was stamped in Soft Suede followed by the straw stripes in Gorgeous Grape.  I used the Fresh Freesia blend to fill in the rest of the straw.  The sentiment is from the Share a Milkshake stamp set too.  Finally, the heart topper was cut using one of the Share a Milkshake dies.  Milky dots in petal pink were used to dress it up further.  You can change up the colors of the milkshake to your favorite flavors and/or to match any DSP.  Perfect for any celebration!

Card 4: Sweet Owls  

These cute little owls are from the Adorable Owls Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  The panel card design hides a surprise owl under the first one.  To make this card, attach the basic black cardstock to the right panel using liquid glue or stampin’ seal.  Then fold the left panel on top.  Attach the 2nd basic black cardstock of the same size to the left panel using dimensionals and align it with the right side of the basic black cardstock that is attached to the right panel.  Now the bottom panel is hidden until the left flap is opened.  I colored the owls using Stampin’ Blends—but water color pencils or markers will work too.

A Fishy Card

Hi there!  It’s been a while since my last post—we’ve been wrapped up in house projects and my stamp area hasn’t been that accessible.  I finally cleared an area and worked on some cards using my favorite set from the mini catalog--Catch You Later.  It reminds me of my only pet—a fish with the original name “fishy”, ha ha.

It’s a simple layout that can be done in many colorways.  I decided to use the Pattern Party DSP with coordinating cardstock and inks.  After coloring, I accented the fish with Wink of Stella Clear.  

These guys just make you smile!
