I held a small SU class this afternoon and will have a bigger class tomorrow evening.  While I’m waiting for Curt to arrive home from a business trip to Arizona, I thought I’d pop by and share one of the cards I designed for these classes.  When I was ordering supplies last month, I decided it would be fun to work with the 5″ x 3.5″ note cards on page 157 of the catalog.  Something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now is create a card using the Sticky Sheets and clear microbeads.  I was thrilled when SU came out with the Sticky Sheets as I had previously purchased them from different sources to create beaded pens, cards and lots of other projects.


I wanted to use one of the 11 stamp sets I have that will be retiring at the end of the month.  I’ve always loved Wild About You and it seemed the perfect choice for this card.  The alligator (Kiwi) and bird (Tangerine) were stamped on Whisper White cardstock and then covered with a piece of Sticky Sheet that had been cut the same size as the cardstock.  Once the protective layer was removed the stamped piece went sticky side down into a tray of clear microbeads.  It’s hard to get a good photo, but this looks so neat-o in person!  Patterned paper is the Kiwi Kiss Patterns dsp and it’s layered onto Tangerine Tango that was punched with the scallop edge punch.  Super easy card with a WOW result!  I’ll be back in a day or two to share the rest of my class projects.


Please be sure to stop by tomorrow for Cupcake Friday and to play the TECC sketch along with us!
