This morning I have a lovely group of ladies joining me for my new Friday morning class, as they will now be on their way here I know it will be "safe" for me to post this as I know they won't see it just yet!!
I decided to use a Springtime theme for this class - everyone got to take home their own Happiness Shared stamp set after the class. These stamps are a"clear" mount set, I have found the best way to get my stamps to cling to the block is by trimming a little of the sticker and keeping my stamps and blocks clean with some stampin' mist. A few minutes of preparation can make all the difference to your stamping.
This card is coloured with Stampin' Write markers and a blender pen. The images in the Happiness Shared stamp set make colouring simple even for a new crafter as there is shading in the areas that are darkest. The satin ribbon and card base are Certainly Celery and I added a matching flower brad with a rhinestone, the edge is punched with the Scallop Border Trim punch.
For this card a border is stamped around the edge of the card to create a frame. This time the flowers are coloured with Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils, they have lovely soft leads in them and Whisper White card is so smooth I used a flat tipped cotton bud to blend and smooth the colour together. The sentiment is form the Curly Cute stamp set.
This card is a really quick and simple design, but the addition of the Black card really makes this one "pop".
This is the matching "gable" box - they are really easy to make and are a useful size too.
This is the gift box and card together.
All of the projects together.
I hope I have provided enough inspiration for the class an everyone leaves inspired by their new stamp set.
