I hosted a day-long class this past Saturday. It was a great day – lots and lots of stamping along with a little bit of eating and some great conversation. I posted some sneak peeks in previous posts, but now that the class is over, I want to post the projects in full form.
The first project we tackled, which was by far the most difficult and time-consuming, was the card box pictured below. I love the new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper, and it lent itself perfectly to the punch art I wanted to use to decorate the top of the box.
The base of the box is Garden Green (8 1/2 x 10, scored at 2″ on all sides) and the top is the pink rose design from the Mosaic Mood paper (6 x 7 5/8, scored at 3/4″ on all sides). That was the easy part…
The rose took the biggest chunk of the morning to complete. I’d love to say it’s mine, but I didn’t come up with the design – I found the tutorial on Pinterest (click here) thanks to addINKtivedesigns. It uses the Hot Air Balloon punch and about a full sheet of Petal Pink paper. The 3 accent leaves are also created using the Air Balloon punch.
The Very Vanilla flower is made with the Perennial Flower punch and the yellow flower is made with large Daisy punch. The center of these two flowers are faceted gems colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.
I will post photos of the 6 cards we made as the week progresses. All in all it was a great day and I will host another event like this next quarter – definitely with a holiday theme.
And I have to include a piece of business – you still have time to take advantage of the Bonus Days! For every $50 you spend through July 31, you get a $5 coupon code to use in August. If there is something you just have to have from the new catalog, now is the time to get it! Click here or the “Shop Online” link on the right to go to my online store.
Happy stamping all!
