My March SU Class

March 10th, 2008

Friday night I had my class for March and I wanted to share the projects we made.

This first card uses Boho Backgrounds – one of my new favorite sets.  It’s hard to believe how versatile this little set of four stamps is, but I’m telling you…you need it!  It’s all the little details that make a card special and on this card we added piercing in the bottom corner and along the green strip, a tiny rub-on in the corner, a ribbon slide from the new silver hardware kit, a silver diamond shaped brad to the turned back corner, and a green rhinestone brad.  Card base is Groovy Guava and the designer paper is the new Afternoon Tea.


Next is a clear card – the base is made from an overhead transparency.  I hope you can see it well enough.  We stamped little hearts with white Stazon around the edge of the card front.


The folded Orchid layer is attached inside the clear base and the white folded layer is attached outside.  This allows everything to be adhered without any adhesive showing anywhere.  The technique used on this card is Faux Stained glass and I saw it on a card by fellow SCSer Leann who got it from Scrapnextras here.  This is a simple and fun technique of overlapping outline images and then coloring in some or all of them.  The stamp set used for this card is the free SAB set Merci.  You can still get this (or one of 5 other sets) for free by placing a $50 Stampin’ Up! order this week! For this card we colored with blender pens and ink from markers scribbled on a CD.  We also made samples using glossy cardstock and markers (no blender pens).

Our third project was an adorable little Bagalope Basket that I found on my friend Cami’s blog.  Her directions are excellent so I won’t try to re-create them.  Click here for details.  We used Kraft envelopes and Afternoon Tea designer paper along with an image from Big Flowers and a white flower rub-on from the Occasions Mini.  We used the slot punch to create a place for some Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi ribbon to slide into in the basket handle.  I did my scoring at 1″ – Cami shows 2 variations.  Another really fun and simple project.  We also stuffed these with some Easter grass and chocolate eggs.


This was a really fun class…I have really GREAT customers!!!

This week I need to focus on lots of details for StampMania which is getting really close and of course I also have to prep for my luncheon on Friday. I’m so excited – all 6 ladies said *yes* (just one has to come late).  My wonderful friend Darla (the Pampered Chef Consultant) even offered to help me with cooking! 🙂  Good and busy week ahead.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Jami, these are all so pretty! I’m more tempted by the Afternoon Tea paper than any papers I’ve seen in a long time. Just gorgeous! I love your stained glass background, too. I wondered at first which designer paper that was–it looks great!!

  8. Debbie Olson Says:

    So lovely, every one of them, Jami! That top card really catches my eye though–love the colors and that little background set. I’ve been tempted by that set, but I figured I really didn’t need more stuff, you know? Still. . . Hmmmmm. . .

  9. Debbie Olson Says:

    Well, Jami, great minds must think alike! (Or else I was channeling you as you played with clear cards! :-D) These are all beautiful; I especially love the little Bag-a-Lope. TFS!
