July Stamp Class

August 6th, 2012

Happy Monday!  Yes, I am well aware that it is August!  I seem to be running a little behind in several areas of life and I have not yet shared the projects we created in my July stamp class.  Previews for the August Taylored Expressions Release begin tomorrow, so I thought I bet get my act together and get these July projects posted!

First up is a really cute card featuring Under the Sea and the Faux Diamond Dust Technique (kaleidescope embossing powder used here).  The main image panel was inspired by a card created by Baker’s Dozen Designer Shannon.  Her card is much more involved and quite spectacular which was great inspiration for my simpler class card.  Paper is Echo Park.  This card is SO sparkly in person!!


Next up is a simple Genie Bag created with some SU dp and the Taylored Expressions Petal Pop-up Dies.  I adore Genie Bags and will be forever grateful to Jen del Muro for coming up with the idea several years back!  This one is quite small.  I used small white lunch bags from Smart’n’Final and cut the tops down.  The dp panel is 4.25″ x 5.5″ and the handle was punched with an SU oval punch.  I love that you can make these whatever size meets your needs.  The tag is a TE Mini Tag and the sentiment is from the Daisy Bouquet Petite set.


The final project we created was an easel card…my very first easel card.  Yes, I was reading the tutorial on SCS the afternoon of class to pull this together.  LOL!  And I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  The card features TE stamp set Oops-a-Daisy and the Fence Border Die.  The bloom was first inked with a Melon Mambo pad, then the ink was removed from the center with a Q-tip. Then the chocolate ink was added from a SU marker direct-to-rubber on the stamp. I think this would have also been beautiful with Faux Diamond Dust added to the panel!  If you haven’t tried an easel card yet, I’d encourage you to go for it.  It’s really easy and has quite a WOW result!

So, those were our 3 projects for July.  Even though I have a bunch of ideas swirling around in my head for my next class, I’ve decided to skip August.  I’ll be back at in September though!  I hope you’ll come back and visit me tomorrow as I have a new TE stamp set that I’m super excited about!!!


Thanks for stopping by!

    Organic Patek Philippe, unimpaired hyper-rare platinum examples, unbroken of finished provenance, the three prelude lots from Christie’s Geneva auction of finance watches are to appear as out-and-out to straighten amongst the jumping-off place plush catalogue of platinum Patek Philippe wristwatches to believe remained reputation particular hands.
