All Occassion Card Class

To everyone that attended my All Occassion Card Class, thanks so much for attending! I hope everyone enjoyed the variety of cards & techniques presented at my first fall card class!

Here is a photo of the cards we created.

The 1st card was created with the new Build a Bear stamp set, Beary Best Friends & sentiment, Beary Nice Wishes from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. We watercolored the images by first stamping images with Stazon, on watercolor paper (makes such a difference!) Then colored in with Aqua painters & stamp pads. Customers could choose whether they wanted a boy or girl bear. Both are "Beary" adorable!!! Cardstock: Brilliant Blue & So Saffron. Designer paper: Tall Tales.

The next card was created with the new stamp set On A Pedestal! Love it!!! It was one of the first sets I spotted in the new Idea Book & Catalog that I had to have!!! And, when customers saw that I brought Big Shot Texturz plates, they just had to try them out on this card! And, new Striped Grosgrain ribbon...so gorgeous!

The next card was created with the new stamp set Sweet Centers from the Holiday Mini Catalog! This set features 6 stampes which coordinate with the new treat cups. There is a variety of stamps which can be used for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day, & the very adorable Hot Air Balloon! We used the treat cups (fits perfectly in this stamp set) with a hole punched with the 1 3/4 circle. Then we punched a 1 1/4 circle in the back to access the candies! Too cute!!!

And, the next card was a big hit! We used the exclusive Stampin' Up! embossing folder, Elegant Boquet, with Whisper White cardstock. Then, used the awsome technique, ruffling designer paper. To create this look, we used the scallop punch down the side of a 12" piece of desigher paper, then crimped it. Stamped a sentiment, punched with Wide Oval punch. Then put sticky strip on back of the oval, and stuck the designer paper on back, tucking & bunching as you go along. Awsome technique which was created by fellow demonstrator, Jan Tinkenberg.

The designer paper used is "Night & Day" from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Cardstock is Rich Razzleberry & Black. Rich Razzleberry ribbon!
