Happy Friday everyone! I just got done doing 4 Christmas in July Stamp a Stack Classes this week and I'm now excited to get my Pre-order in on Monday for the Holiday Catalog! But first, let me continue on sharing my cards from July classes. This one was my second favorite of the month. I layered up Smokey Slate, Hello Honey and Pool Party card stock. For the focal point of the card, I used Very Vanilla and stamped out the sentiment in Smokey Slate from the stamp set Big News along with the candles in Pool Party, randomly at the bottom. I used a piece of Lil' Sweetie DSP over a piece of Tangerine Tangelo card stock.
I stamped the flag in Pool Party and fussy cut it out and stuck it to a toothpick. I fussy cut out the Silver Glimmer paper into a banner as well, and stuck it to another toothpick and tied a bow to the front of them. Really fun card and can't wait to pick out some other colors and make them in different ones.
Good Tuesday to you all! Here is my favorite card from July's card class. I pulled out the Six Sided Sampler since it hasn't been used in a year! I saw this flower and knew I needed to make it. I used Crushed Curry to stamp the gingham stamp 6 times for the flower and once for the saying in which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I added each petal with Dimensionals and then a Early Expresso circle to the center. (I embossed it with the Dotted Embossing Folder). I ran the Early Expresso layer on the card through the Stripes Embossing Folder.
I wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine around it all and tied a bow. I added a cute little Crushed Curry heart to the bow.
Okay, so here is number 3 of the 4 we made. This one is the Double Slider card and it uses 4 pennies to make it move.
Again, using the Cherry on Top DSP stack, along with the Fabulous Four Stamp set and some of the beautiful new ribbon. I folded a piece of Cucumber Crush in half, used the Word Window Punch to punch in on both sides for the pennies (the slider mechanism) to slide up and down in. Then I layered the DSP onto that and punched it again over the exsisting ones.
I added a penny underneath each of the slots, and then added a Dimensional on top of each one, then placed another penny onto the Dimensional and that became my sliding mechanism. I then layered up all the pieces of the focal point and stuck it down on top of the pennies that I placed yet one more Dimensional to each to help keep it in place.
If you would like to see how it's made, the video is by Dawn Griffith and can be found here:
