If you have a chance, review the videos before class. You will know all the tips and tricks in advance.
Here are this week's projects.
Floating & Fluttering Card:
Do you remember the first time you heat embossed something? I certainly do!!! Heat embossing sealed the deal with me and stampin. I wanted to emboss EVERYTHING (and did)!
Ya, I should have used my embossing buddy… ya…
In the video, while making the purple butterflies card, I applied a bit toooo much Wink of Stella. Well, mistakes happen to all of us, right? The inside purple butterfly is VERY sparkly.
This bundle has so many good things. Remember the card we did a few years ago where we made stamped pieces seem like they are floating. It was a great card and sooo much work. This stamp set does most of that work for you!
We will use just the detailed butterfly die and the word label. This card is a 101 card and very easy. It's great for any occasion.
Did you know VersaMark ink can be used as a watermark with stamps? Usually we use Versa Ink to heat emboss. If you don't put the powder onto the wet ink, the ink will slightly darken your paper. See the soft suede paper under the butterflies above? Grace's Garden Card:
Why did I hold this set for so long and not use it? HAKNOW!
I love this bundle. I'm so happy we will be using it in April. If you have any interest, get it soon before it's gone.
Notice the rounded corners? I've had the trio punch for a long time. You can use it on your card if you like the look (I do).
The Brick & Motar embossing folder is a perfect fit here. To highlight a few sunbleached bricks, I used a dauber and white ink. The white ink might take a bit to dry. Do this step last and assemble. The white ink might smear and transfer if you ink heavy.
The little kitty and bird – OMG, adorable!
If supplies remain after class, they will make rounds as a Project Box.
