My monthly stamp a stack class is always so much fun. I really enjoy having people come to my home for an afternoon of creativity, inspiration and fun.
Here are the cards we made at my March stamp a stack class.
This first card may look familiar to you if you read my blog post on March 21st.
The cute bunny focal point of this card is layered on top of one of our Stitched Shapes Framelits which is a product I featured at this class.
On the card I posted March 21st I had fussy cut the carrots. However, after borrowing the coordinating framelits from a friend, I decided that I needed to order them and I'm so glad I did.
The next card featured the Balloon Adventures stamp set. Although there are lots of cute stamps in this set, I absolutely love the cloud stamp. That is why I covered the back of this Marina Mist card stock with a whole bunch of fluffy clouds.
I LOVE the sentiment on this card! Did you know that when you send an unexpected card and note to someone who is down you are sure to lift their spirits?
It is always such a wonderful gesture to take the time to let someone know you care and I think the best way to do that is in a hand stamped card.
The next card featured the stamp set Special Reason with the coordinating framelits.
I only used a square of gold foil to add a shiny frame to this beautifully detailed cut out flower. The words on this card were from one of our saleabration stamps called Avant Garden.
The final card of the bunch was this Beautiful You Birthday card. This card showed the paper piecing technique. This technique is done when you take an outline image and stamp it onto patterned paper. You then cut it out and place it on top of the same image that has been stamped somewhere else. This technique is perfect for the Beautiful You stamp set as shown in the sample below. In just minutes, you can create a whole closet full of patterned dresses in various colors for this stamped fashionista.
I used the Soft Subtles Paper stack to create a variety of colorful dresses so that each of my guests were able to make this same card using three different color schemes.
I think everyone had a blast making this card, it was definitely a class favorite. I asked the ladies, which color did they like the most? Everyone choose a different one. I guess they all look nice. It made me think that when you find a dress that fits as nicely as this one does then you should buy it in every color, at least thats what I would do! So I guess that rule applies when stamping dresses for this beautiful fashionista too!
Do you recognize these colors?
The first one is Sweet Sugar Plum, the Second one Peek A Book Peach and the third one Flirty Flamingo? These are all a part of our 2015-2017 In Color Collection. I think all three of them are beautiful!
Speaking of a beautiful trio, I'm so glad these wonderful ladies were able to stamp with me this month.
At the end of class on Sunday, Pam received a text message from her twin daughters. They were at a friends house getting ready for the prom. Earlier that week I had met with them to help design a simple card to help number their tables. They were so kind to send a picture from the event and show me how the cards coordinated with their table decor and theme.
They did all the work and I think the table looks beautiful. Hopefully people noticed their hard work! I just noticed as I was uploading this picture that everyone shown here is on their phones! I wonder if they are texting each other asking if they want to dance?
Pam's daughters looked SO beautiful. I'm so happy they sent this picture to share with us. These girls are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. They are growing up so fast!!!
We all enjoyed seeing their beautiful smiles and gorgeous dresses.
I'm not sure if it was their photo that inspired us or the fact we had been stamping dresses that day, or because I had been up since 3:30am because I was on worship team at church that morning but we were all a little giddy and decided to send a prom picture of our own back to the girls.
As you can see, we all really had a great time at this month's class. Sharing creativity and inspiring others to create cards to spread aloha is one of my favorite things to do and its extra special when I get to do it with such fun and fabulous stamping sisters and friends.
