Another card making class!!!

I had a FABULOUS time with my stampers:  Nanci, Andrea, Rhonda, Shelley, Debra and Kayla today!
Here's the first card, using a technique called Triple Layering technique I copied from Gloria Plunkett at:  http://www.designzbygloria.com/my_weblog/2012/07/very-cool-cards.html using the Reason to Smile stamp set.  Don't you just love how it looks?
 Here's another one using the stamp sets, Mixed Bunches and Oval All.  I LOVE how the stamps match the punches exactly!
 Now comes a technique I call, the "moving box."  I used 2 double sided papers cut to 3" X 6" and scored at 1.5" on each side. Then, layer them like a "t" and then fold it like you would when you are packing a moving box.  I accented the plain squares with the stamp set "A Fitting Occasion"


 I wasn't sure what kind of card people needed, so I gave them the choice of a birthday, baby, or wedding card. I used the technique called "Shadow Box" card and thought it would look even cooler if you embossed the front or left it alone like with the baby one.  They could choose the Square Lattice" like in the bday one or the "Perfect Polka Dots" like in the wedding one.
 To give you an idea of how the Shadow Box cards look like, here's a top view of them.  And they fold so you can mail them! How cool it that?
And of course all of my stampers came away with a gift from me!  These are candy holders full of M&M's with a topper made from a piece of cardstock folded in half before I punched it with the scallop circle so it became a card that you can sign inside of it.  Oh, and of course, everyone had Rice Krispy Treats...that's a given!

My next class will be on October 6th.  Hope you can make it!

Well, thanks for checking in!
