More Birthday Cards with Stampin' Up!

Hello friends! Today I would like to share two more birthday cards I created for my Stampin' Up! Birthday Card Classes last summer. This duo of cards was created using the Perennial Birthday stamp set

I offered two different techniques on the cards. In the card above the flowers were stamped with Staz-on black ink, and filled in with water colors. I did experience a slight degree of "black bleed" in spots, but overall i think the card looks fine. For the class I had the students use in on daubers and this worked much better.

In the card below I tried stamping the leaf and berries stamp in a circle. I used a small circle taped to the card front using painters tape and stamped around the circle. I then stamped additional leaves and the floral elements on white cardstock. I fancy cute those and added them to the front of the card using dimensional dots (formerly known as Pop Dots!). 

Thank you all for stopping by today. I am off to work on projects for the Aiken Christmas Craft Show. 

One More Go At This...

Hello friends! Remember back in April and May when I shared that I planned to begin blogging again? "Best-laid plans" would be an adequate description of that scheme. Here it its October and I am trying once again.4

I have been very busy over the last few months with paper crafting, traveling, and most recently, getting injured. I have started hosting card making classes at my home, as well as a monthly get together when our Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin kits arrive. I recently held a Christmas Stampin' Bingo party, which was really great fun! 

My plans for the fall include more Birthday Card class (next week), several Christmas Card classes, and a Christmas Tags get together.

Today, in an attempt to ease back into blogging, I am sharing some of the birthday cards created in my classes over the last few months.

My PLAN is to return and share more with you soon.
