Stamping 101

Hi Stampers,

The first Tuesday of every month we have a Stamping 101 class where we make three projects that use simple techniques to produce quick, yet beautiful items. This month we made two cards and a treat holder. 

The first card used the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder from the Saleabration brochure. The three stamps we used were all from different sets; the diagonal stripe image is from Gorgeous Grunge, the sentiment is from Create a Cupcake, and the flower and the coordinating punch are from the Petite Petals bundle. We used Very Vanilla and Strawberry Slush card stock and Early Espresso ink. 

The second card features the Designer Series Paper from Saleabration, Sweet Sorbet. The stamped image is from Perfect Pennants and we cut it out with the coordinating framelits and the Big Shot. The card stock layers are Crisp Cantelope and Pistacio Pudding. This was our fastest project, I think this card came together in about five minutes. 

Our last project was this Ghiradeli chocolate holder. We used the Envelope Punch Board to get the file tab shape at the top. The image on the front, from Apothecary Art, was stamped twice. The bottom layer was stamped in Coastal Cabana and cut out with the coordinating framelits, then it was stamped again in Wisteria Wonder from which we cut out the centre of the image with the circle framelits. We then used Stampin' Write markers in Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzaz to colour the flowers and leaves. So cute!!

If you're interested in any of the Saleabration items they are available until March 31st. Contact me if you need a brochure. 

Go stamp something!
