I recently returned from an awesome vacation to the Rocky Mountains where I was able to reunite with family and kick back and relax. It gave me an opportunity to re-energize and rejuvenate. It was exactly what I needed.
Soon after I came home, I taught another class in Clermont, FL for the Clermont Woman's Club. These women are fantastic and they love to stamp! We had so much fun. Every month we meet at the Woman's Club historic home in Clermont. If you would like to join us for class next month, please contact me! We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 10:00am. Space is limited, so please act quickly. Click here to see where we meet for class.
One of the projects we made at our last class was this super cute card. This was an opportunity for me to introduce the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (that's a mouthful). This punch is brand new and was just released in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog (#122464). For less than $24, you get 3 punches in 1! This punch offers so many crafting opportunities, I highly recommend this punch as a staple to your crafting supplies - you won't be disappointed.
For the card above, we only used two of the three punches, creating two layers of flowers on each stem. By using different sheets of scrapbook paper we were able to add dimension and interest. To hold the layers together I added a rhinestone brad in the center and popped them both up from the card with a Stampin' dimensional.
To add a little more interest, instead of stamping blades of grass with ink, we created our own grass by looping Pear Pizzazz ribbon along a strip of Sticky Strip. The Sticky Strip (very strong, double-sided tape) was all that was needed to secure the ribbon to the card. It became such a "wow factor" and everyone loved creating something "unexpected".
Again, if you have interest in joining me for class, please let me know. If you can't come to this class, I have several other classes I teach each month at different venues. I'd love to have you join us!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all of you who have (and who are) selflessly serving our country. I appreciate you!
