My April SU Class

April 4th, 2009

Class last night was so much fun!  I feel so fortunate to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and have such a wonderful group of ladies for customers! We made 3 projects last night.  I already shared the cards we made with Oval All (see below). 


Here’s a card using the new stamp set Sense of Time with the Bleach Technique.  I love the white ghost look of bleach on Almost Amethyst cardstock.  The base of this card and the grosgrain ribbon are both Night of Navy.  To stamp with bleach simply take a folded up damp paper towel and pour some Clorox bleach on it (I’ve been told that bargain bleach does not work as well) and use that as your stamp pad.  It takes a few seconds for the bleach to take effect on the cardstock once you stamp your image.  Watching it is like magic.   It’s fun to see the result on different colors of cardstock as the bleach has different results on each color.

Our third class project was this fun basket and Easter bunny.


The basket was created with Textured cardstock run through the CB or Big Shot with the Top Note die and attached to a small kraft bag that I cut down to 3″.  This was inspired by a bunch of these I saw in the SCS gallery.

The front was stamped with white craft ink with the large flourish image from Baroque Motifs and the Easter sentiment from All Holidays was added.  I saw the punched bunny in the SCS gallery of girl3boys0 and immediately had to figure out how to make it!

Once I had it figured out, I made this punch guide for my customers.  Click on it to enlarge.  I hope it makes sense to you.

For my April 15th afternoon class we’ll be making the Oval All card and the Sense of Time Bleach card along with a different third project (since it be after Easter.)  I do have some openings for that class, so let me know if you’d like to attend.

I hope you’re having a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
