Next Stampin' Up! Class - 3 September 2011 - Sneak Peek

Hi all,

Hope you're well and enjoying your August so far. I've been really organised and excited about September's Stampin' Up! Class, as it's a card technique I've not tried before. Anyway, I got to work recently when the weather was 30 degrees outside and started designing for next month's class a lot more in advance than I normally do, as these next couple of weeks before the class will be busy ones for me.

Anyway, here's a sneak peek of what the ladies have in store for them in a few weeks time at the next Stampin' Up! Class on Saturday 3rd September.

Sneak Peek

Check back on Saturday 3 September for the complete projects in full.

Until then.

Bye for now,

Today's Stampin' Up! Class - Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder

Hi all,

Another great class with the ladies today, making two cards based on the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder. These two cards were inspired and CASEd by some examples seen online, colours/sentiments were changed to create the below two cards:

Manhattan Flower Card 1

Stamps: Vintage Vogue (P.62) and Occasional Quotes (P.14 - Hostess Level 3).
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.
Pretty In Pink.
Accessories: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Manhattan Flower, 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon - Whisper White, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals and SU Bone Folder.
Card Size:

Someone clever has managed to see beyond the Manhattan Flower pattern to the outline of a "dress". See below for the basic outline:

Manhattan Flower Card 2

Stamps: Occasional Quotes (P.14 - Hostess Level 3).
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
Early Espresso.
Accessories: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Manhattan Flower, Scallop Edge Border Punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Very Vanilla, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and SU Bone Folder.
Card Size:

This card would be appropriate for most occasions by changing the sentiment whether it be a Happy Anniversary, Thank You, Thinking of You or Birthday card. The themes are endless and so are the colour combinations to create this simple and quick card.

Here are the two cards together:

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm really excited about September's Stampin' Up! Class as I have recently designed it for next month and am chuffed at the end results. Check back at the end of August for sneak peeks.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Bye for now,
