Cottage Crafts Class for August 29th

Posted by on August 6, 2008 in Birthday, Flowers | 1 comment

Here are my projects for a class I’ll be teaching at Cottage Crafts (San Jose, Ca) in September.

A pretty simple card using a new set I received at convention. It was inspired by another sample from the “Art From the Heart” CD. I used markers to color the stamp and distressed the edges of the cardstock with the “Cutter Kit” tool.

Stamps: Inspired by Nature
Paper: Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive

This one was inspired by “mudflapmomma” whose card can be seen at It uses the stamp set Party Hearty (a set we were able to earn free a while back) and the colors are Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip. The top of the cupcake is trimmed and layered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Little pink beads are added with Crystal Effects (not the easiest little guys to apply but I think they are worth the trouble 🙂 The polka dot paper is from “Bella Rose. If I can find some white candles, I think it would be cute to tie one to the ribbon. The stamped piece is layered on Close to Cocoa cardstock for a little contrast.

This one was cased with slight changes from “Michelle TX” whose card can be seen at
The images from “Stitched Exotics” are stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery and Ballet Blue (all the color families are represented :-). Layer with Cardstock Vellum, add brads and ribbon, stamp your sentiment (from Sincere Salutations) and layer to Ballet Blue cardstock. Pretty easy and a lot of fun to stamp with such bright and vibrant colors.

This one was inspired by Julie Davison whose card can be seen at
The leaves from “Happiness Always” (level 3 Hostess set from the new catalog) are stamped in Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the lacy leaf off once on scratch paper for a softer look. Add Black Gingham ribbon, layer onto Basic Black and then Kiwi Kiss cardstock. This is probably the fastest card I’ve ever stamped 🙂
