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!

Cool Treats Class - March 2021

Here are the cards from my Cool Treats stamp and go class.  They feature new products from the mini catalog--furry spring friends and frozen treats.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

20210320 class cards

 

Card 1: Little Lamb

As a kid, I remember reading Little Golden Books.  These books had gold with designs on the left edge and spine.  That was the feel I was trying to achieve with this card.  The DSP with the gold scrollwork is from the Ornate Garden DSP.  The sweet little lamb has flowers that fit the large and medium sized flowers from the Confetti Flowers Border punch.  So I punched these flowers out of real red and flirty flamingo cardstock and attached them to the garland.  This is a very versatile card that can be used for many occasions—baby, birthday, spring, Easter and more.

20210320 Lamb card

Here is the recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Springtime Joy, So Sentimental, Special Someone
  • Sahara Sand cardstock 8 ½ x 5 ½”
  • Whisper White cardstock 2 ¾ x 2 ¼”
  • Real Red and Flirty Flamingo cardstock for flowers
  • Gold foil 2 ½ x 3”
  • Ornate Garden Specialty DSP 2 x 5 ¼”
  • Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels (small)
  • Ink Pad: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stampin’ Blends: Gray Granite (light and dark), real red (dark), old olive (light and dark), Petal Pink (dark)
  • Confetti Flowers Border punch

 

Card 2: Bunny and Flowers

The design of this card was inspired by Cindy Baughman.  She gave me a fall card using DSP that was folded this way.  The base of the card is cardstock measuring 4 ¼ x 5 ½”. A 4 x 11” piece of DSP scored at 3 ¼” and 8 ½”, folded at score marks was attached to it using the 4 x 5 ¼” side.  The 3 ¼” flap is the top flap.  The Ornate Garden DSP has gold accents on many of the pieces so it gives the card a warm glow.  See the opened and closed versions of the cards below. 

A piece of 1 x 4” DSP was attached to the edge of the top flap, then the framed image with the bunny, flowers and sentiment was attached to it using dimensionals on the top half.  The bunny was stamped on whisper white cardstock, cut out with snips and attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment can also be swapped out for Easter or Spring.

Card 3: Triple Scoop Ice Cream Cone

The colors used on the ice-cream scoops on this card were based on the colors on the Ice Cream Corner DSP, which was used for the background.  The Ice Cream Builder punch was used to punch out each scoop plus the cone.  Wink of stella was colored on the sparkles for some shine.

  • Ice Cream Corner DSP 4 x 5 ¼”

  • Ice Cream Builder Punch
  • Wink of Stella Clear

 

Card 4: Cool Treats

This card features the ice cream cones and ice cream bars from the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  For the one on the right, I used the layout from the mini catalog on page 48 as my inspiration.  The polka dots were made with the eraser tip of a wood pencil stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I modified the size of the DSP and background so that no DSP was wasted.  The other card layout is more traditional and lined up—all of the paper sizes are the same. The Triple Banner punch was used to punch the ends of the whisper white cardstock with the sentiment.  The cool treats on the DSP were colored with Wink of Stella to add shimmer
