July Class Pair

July 18th, 2011

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  It was a busy one here.  Summer Sunday Suppers started at our church last night and I coordinate/oversee the program for 8 weeks.  We had sloppy joes last night and the team did a wonderful job!  So many of my papercrafting friends are in, or on their way to, Chicago today for CHA.  Although it really was the best choice for me not to go, it’s still likely that I’ll be incresaingly pouty as the week progresses.  Happens every Summer.  But I’ve got a little mischief up my sleeve, so be sure to check back later in the week.

Last Thursday evening I held my July Stamp Class.  We created birthday projects featuring Taylored Expressions stamps and the My Mind’s Eye Alphabet Soup Girl 12×12 kit.  For the first project everyone had a choice to make either of these cards:

The two cards use the same paper elements – just opposite sides of the two-sided patterned papers.  One pattern was die cut with a Spellbinders Blossom die.  Then they had the choice to use Moka Taylor Petite Stamp Set of Birds of a Feather Full Size Stamp Set (along with the birdies from the coordinating die.)

Here are close-ups of the two cards.

We paper-pieced the dress and colored the rest of her with Copics.  The Spellbinders tag is popped up on foam tape and KaiserCraft rhinestones cover up the holes meant for brads.

Ink used for the bird cage is Early Espresso.  Ribbon on both cards is SU Pumpkin Pie Taffeta and the cardstock is Peach Parfait.  Images were die cut with Spellbinders Labels 10 and sponged with Peach Parfait ink with the die still in place.  Card layout was losely based on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 125.

Thanks for stopping by.  I have more class projects to share this week so stay tuned.  Have a great day!
