August Stamp Class at Jami’s

August 19th, 2010

Happy Thursday!  Tomorrow night I’m holding my monthly stamp class, but this one is a little different since it’s a Stampin’ Up! New Catty Night.  Even though I’m no longer a Demo, there are still things I want from SU, so I figured I might as well host a Stampin’ Up! Class and take orders as hostess.  *SPOILER ALERT* If you are attending class tomorrow night and don’t want to see the projects we’ll be making, then close this window NOW!  Everyone who wants a peek – stick with me. 🙂

These cards are SUO – something I rarely do anymore.  First up is a pair of samples featuring my favorite stamp set from the new catalog – Aviary.  Card base is Daffodil Delight and dp is Sunny Garden.  I must say that Daffodil Delight really is a very nice yellow and a great replacement for YoYo which was so rarely used because it was just too primary and bright.  These are not *my colors* at all, but I do try to step oustide my comfort zone for classes as I realize not everyone is all about reds and pinks like I am!  LOL!  I do think these cards are cute and fun!


Since I am going to have such a full house tomorrow night I created 2 versions of this card so I could split the images and inks a bit.  Each person will make just one of the two shown above.  Inks are Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight.  Sentiments are from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

The next sample features an a la carte stamp called Elizabeth.  I fell in love with this image the moment I saw it.  Here it is paired with Shimmery White cardstock (my fave!) along with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive for an elegant feel.  Again the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.


The frame image was stamped in Old Olive and then lightly watercolored with Old Olive ink and an aquapainter.  Satin ribbon in Razzleberry and three SU self-adhesive rhinestones finish off the design.  Can I just say HALLELUJAH that SU finally got with the program on the self-adhesive rhinestones and pearls!!!  I think that was the missing element that drove me the most crazy when I was a Demo and doing all SUO classes.  I cannot live without my bling!  I must say that these rhinestones are top quality and super shiny.  I wonder if they’ll ever add colored ones?  Baby steps…baby steps!  LOL!


My class is 100% full, but if you’re a SoCal local and would like to be on my e-mail list to be notified about future classes – or if you’d like to place an order through my SU class –  just click the *contact me* button in my sidebar and shoot me an e-mail.  Thanks for stopping by.  I’ll see you tomorrow with the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge.

    I knew that Aviary set would be the first set you ordered from the new catty! It is way up there at the top of my list. Have fun!

    Those are definitely cute cards and stamps! I’d probably pick them out, too, if I was buying SU! stamps. Gorgeous flourished sentiment frame on the second card, and I love the Razzleberry and Olive combo for elegance.
