Sept. 12 Class Projects


This is the card we made at my September 12 class. I used a base of Pink Pirrouette card stock and layers of Riding Hood Red card stock and Stampin' Up!'s new Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I stamped the butterflies from "Dreams du Jour" in Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the 1-1/4" square punch and mounted them on squares of Kiwi Kiss card stock that I also punched out with the 1-3/8" square punch. I tied some white taffeta ribbon around the Riding Hood Red/Bella Rose layer and mounted my butterflies on top of that layer. The sentiment is from "Heard from the Heart" and was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink. My ladies really loved this card. I really like it too. At first, I was really unsure about Kiwi Kiss, but I'm really starting to warm up to it. The next project we did was Jackie Topa's Gift Card Purse. She is an extremely talented and creative lady, and very generously shares her projects. I used Kiwi Kiss card stock, with Jackie's Faux Alligator Skin technique on the front. For the inside of the purse, I used Pacific Point card stock accented with Tangerine Tango card stock, which I punched out with the small tag punch (I don't have any oval punches). I also did Jackie's Faux Suede technique for accents on the front of the purse. I finished it off with a wire handle (26 guage silver wire from the retired Wire Works) and some Ice Rhinestone Brads. The green ones match the Kiwi Kiss card stock perfectly! I absolutely love the way it looks! I know I don't have a picture posted, but I can't seem to get my computer to upload pictures off of my camera. As soon as I figure out what the problem is (I suspect it is a software problem), I will upload the picture. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

What a gorgeous card. I love the butterflys. I never thought that pink and red would go 2gether (something like the inside of a body came to mind lol) but you have changed my mind. Well Done!!

What a pretty card! I keep resisting the the Dreams Du Jour but it's getting harder and harder. Glad your son is back. My nephew just recently finished bootcamp and is going to Iraq in a couple of months.
