First Make and Take Class

Have you ever had those days when you have good intentions but can’t seem to have things go the way you planned?  Well, that’s how this blog is seeming to go! lol

It has taken me 7 months to prepare, plan and execute this blog and when I’m finally live I post backwards!  My first post was of cards from my second Make and Take Class.  This post is of the cards from my first Make and Take Class.  I guess it’s a learning process and I’d better learn pretty quick:)

I wanted my first class as a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator to be colorful and I think I pulled that one off!  Don’t you just love the new heart thinlet die?  It’s so lacy and pretty.

The heart card was made with crushed curry and whisper white cardstock with razzleberry lemonade designer series paper (DSP).  Super easy.

The birthday cake card was made with the Build a Birthday stamp set.  This set is a polymer stamp-it’s clear instead of foam.  Love, love, love the polymer stamps.  These stamps are great for accurate placement of the image on the paper.  Mint macaron, crushed curry, melon mambo and tip top taupe ink were used to build the cake.  This stamp set can be used as candles as well when you turn the stamp vertical.  It’s all about birthday DSP was used as well.

The next card was probably the easiest.  I wanted to show how you can use up all your DSP paper scraps.  DSP scraps were cut up in different widths and lengths, snipped at the end and taped next to each other on very vanilla cardstock.  I added some cute little butterflies I made with a retired thinlet folder and prettied them up with pearl dots.

Hope you enjoyed these cards and maybe inspired you to pull out your scraps!  Until next time:)
