The first project I had for the girls to make was this adorable little purse made out of a sheet of 12×12 designer paper. I am not sure where I found the directions, but I know it was shown at a SU! regional. It has two pockets, maybe one for some treats and one for a card? I haven’t made anything to put in mine yet, but I can totally picture this being great to use for a little girl’s birthday gift! I used the paper "Flowers for You" on this one, but each of the girls chose their own paper (all different), and they came out great!
The next project I had for them to make was the following card. I had seen some beautiful brayered cards on Karen Barber’s blog HERE, but I don’t live in Ohio, so I can’t stalk Michelle Zindorf for personal lessons like Karen did, so we went a little easier. (Just kidding Karen, I loved the story on your blog!) 🙂 If you haven’t heard me talk about Karen’s blog before, let me give you a refresher…she is Amazing and I really want to be her when I grow up in my stamping life!! Anyway, we used Summer Sun to brayer the background, then sponged on Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red for the sunset look. The flowers at the bottom are embossed using Black Craft Ink and clear embossing powder.
I also showed the girls how to make this cool card/gift card holder. The "h" is one of the sticky cuts, it shows up better in real life. We just stuck it on our designer paper and used Dazzling Diamonds to cover it and still see the designer paper through.
Christine brought a card for us all to make. I don’t think you can tell from the picture, but the entire portion of the card stamped with pears is embossed with a nice clear coating. We used Watercolor Wonder Crayons and aquapainters to color in the pears. Love this card, thanks Christine!
Donna brought a fun little project too…SU will be offering some cool laser cut note cards next month, so Donna created her own version and we all made one. Very creative, thanks Donna! In case you didn’t see her link to the right, HERE’s Donna’s website, another beauty!!
