These are the the final two cards for my Sale-a-bration class tomorrow. I added a little bling to the So Many Thanks card, that of course is optional. It's fun to use a new accessory and break out of my comfort zone so to speak. Now I'm off to create a little hostess club sneak preview for the ladies coming tomorrow night. There are still three spots available, contact me today to sign up!
Woo Hoo! I finally figured out how to get a photo off of my camera and upload it right side up! Yes, it's the small things that bring me joy :) Anyway, here are two of the four cards for my Sale-a-bration class this Wednesday. I had planned on making four samples tonight, but my wonderful hubby commandeered me for a spontaneous date night. What a guy! So the other two samples will be whipped up and posted tomorrow. They will feature the Forrest Friends and So Many Thanks sets. All four cards are made using sets which are FREE with a $50 order now through March 31st. So many great ideas and so little time! Ok, my stamping time out from date night is up, have a great evening!
I stumbled upon Martha Stewart's blog the other day, and it is a treasure chest of great card ideas! She is one talented lady and I used her ideas for two of the cards for Tuesday's class. Even though all of the greetings on these cards are for Christmas, they can easily be changed for a winter birthday, anniversary or just because! RSVP to save your spot! Also any kits that were ordered for the previous class will be ready to take home Tuesday. See you on the 14th :)
Here's my take on a card one of my stampers brought over as an example. The original card had the En Francis stamped on vanilla and layered on an Espresso circle. I decided to simplify the layout and stamp directly on the Poppy Parade background. I'm liking the Poppy, Espresso and Vanilla color combination!
This is my first attempt at Soot Stamping and I have a mixed review. The effect is really fun but I'm not sure I did a very good job of taking the soot off of the paper with the stamp. I couldn't find my clear sealer and used hairspray instead. It seems to have done a pretty good job of sealing the soot so that it doesn't rub off the card. Plus it smells much better than acrylic sealer! I'm going to play around with this technique before Wednesday's class and try to perfect it a bit more.
My upline Lee Ann showed me a card she created using the Two Tags die to make a magnetic bookmark. I thought that was a really cool way to use the die and came up with this as a twist on a card I make a couple of weeks ago. Though this card doesn't have any greeting on it now, it would be easy enough to swap out snowflakes for a greeting. Ok, time for bed. That is if I can sleep through the bass rumbling coming from my hubby playing his new video game in the basement :)
Just one of the great general greeting cards that will be part of my class on Wednesday. I'm working on creating samples and posting photos of the other three designs. Check back later tonight for the rest of the designs!
