These are the projects that I’m teaching for my April workshops!

 

This fun little card uses the Nursery Neccessities stamp set.  Its a baby set, but for this card I’ve made it more generic.  I think you could send this card for any happy occassion. 

To start the focal point, I punched the Large Star Punch through Brocade Blue card stock. 

Then I created a dry embossing template with the (small) Star Punch.  To do this, I simply punched through a piece of thin chipboard.  Then, using the an embossing stylus, I raised the smaller star centered inside the larger one. 

Next, to define the raised section, I sponged Brocade Blue ink, keeping the embossing template in place as a guide.  Then I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter with a 2-Way Glue Pen.

 

I placed the star on an Always Artichoke scallop with a Dimensional, then punched a hole through the scallop and threaded the grosgrain ribbon through.

 

  

To finish it off, I stamped the small star from the stamp set with Bashful Blue Classic Ink onto the same color card base and stamped the saying with Always Artichoke.  Then I dry embossed the small star overlapping the stamped images.

 

 

 

 

 

 I stamped the big pretty flower from the Doodle This stamp set twice on Glossy White card stock.  On one of them, I added color using a Lavender Lace Classic Pad and an Aqua Painter.  Then I cut out both flowers using our wonderful Paper Snips.  They are my favorite scissors!

I again used the 2-Way Glue Pen & Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to highlight parts of the flower.

A dimensional pops the flower up away from the page.

 

 

The saying is from the Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons.  I think it would have looked better if I had used the black one.

But I LOVE the swirly doodles in this set!!

  

 

 

For the 3D item this month, I made a gift enclosure.  It holds a Jamba Juice gift card, but you could also put other things inside like a tea or Kool-Aid packet, or orange flavored lollipops.

I love the Tart & Tangy stamp set in the Occassions Mini Catalog!  It is SO cute!  And its so convenient that the images fit perfectly in the circle punches.

The stamp set also works so well with the Enjoy Every Moment set, that I used on the inside and with its jumbo wheel, Daisy Dash.  I like how the flowers on the wheel look with the Scallop Circle punch and the punched scallop edge on the flap.

(Enjoy Every Moment & the Daisy Dash jumbo wheel are part of this month’s promo.)
