Well, I've been away for the past three month and now I'm back with my class cards for April.
Gilding flakes are fun to play with but can be quite messy if you're not careful. I have found out through, that the Leaf Foils from Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ), are less messy then other brands. The sheets are larger and easier to handle. This is perfect for teaching my classes where so many people will be using it at the same time. And for those of you that do mot like MESS.
Here is the 3rd and last card for my January Card Class.
I also made several variations of this same card. Included in the FSJ Storybook Occasions stamp set are the sentiments, Thinking of You, Happy Birthday, Happy Easter, Wish You Luck, & Be Mine. The images was stamped with Black Fusion Ink and colored with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. The paper is from Through The Year Prints. Two sheets of cardstock weight designer paper for Each Month/Holiday. The embellishments of this card are three green Rainbow Drops in upper left corner and a triple bow with Lemongrass Thread. The background was dry embossed using the Corrugated Board EF. The background around the image was colored with Pan Pastels. Challenges for this card: Bugaboo Stamps - Sketch
Another COLD and snowy day here on the East Coast.
So, THINKING SPRING!!!
Here is my second card for my January Class. This is a NEW stamp set from the FSJ, Bloom This Way Spring Mini. The stamp set is called Spring Botanicals. It's one of the trending new design of stamps for the No Line look. All products are from Fun Stampers Journey. I stamped the two flowers in Summer Days Fusing ink and colored in the light portion with the yellow from the Party Pop PanPastels. The other flower was stamped with Sweet Berry Fusion Ink. No need to color this one since it will be layered. I used the masking technique when stamping the flowers and then masked all the flowers to stamp the foliage. I stamped the pink flower two more times on scrap paper. The light portion was colored in with the light pink from the Confectionary Days Panpastels. and then cut out. The smaller one, I just cut out the smaller part of the flower. I sponged the edges with Sweet Berry ink and them layered with thin foam tape. The "Thinking of You is from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set. Challenges for this card: Crafting by Design - Anything Inspiration Destination - Anything Simon Says -Something New
This card can be for any occasion, but I stamped Happy Valentines Day for my December card class.
This is the third and last card for my December class using a new stamp set and new dies.
All products are from Fun Stampers Journey.
I embossed the background with the Brocade Imprints Embossing folder. You can get this folder free with any purchase of $100.00.
I sponged over it with Oatmeal Cookie Fusion ink. Then I splattered it with Gold and Sparkle Silk.
The stamp set is called "Summer Rose". I stamped it with Rich Coral Ink onto Summer Days Cardstock. I cut it out by hand and sponged around the edges of the rose with Rich Coral ink. The leaves are stamped with Limeade Splash and Kiwi Slice.
