Occasions Class Projects

One of my customers wanted to host a stamping class for her friends and coworkers.  She wanted to make cards for a few different occasions.  These are the cards we made.  I had a great time stamping with her friends!  I hope her guests enjoyed themselves too!

This was my favorite card that we made that day.  I love the flowers stamped on the First Edition DSP and the color combination that we used.
  • Stamps: Field Flowers, Thank You Kindly
  • Paper: First Edition DSP; Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Ink: Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant
  • Tools: Extra-Large Oval, Decorative Label and Scallop Trim Border punches

This simple, yet elegant wedding card was a quick card to make.  We used on the of the images to create an all-over pattern of the lower portion of the card.  The satin ribbon is a perfect touch for a wedding card.
  • Stamps: Friends Never Fade, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Paper: Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Ink: Baja Breeze
  • Accessories: Very Vanilla satin ribbon

The Sunflower seemed to be the favorite stamp of the day.  I even sold a few!  This was another simple card to make.  I like the effect of the sunflower stamped on the Natural White card stock, especially paired off with my favorite designer paper ever!

  • Stamps:  Sunflower, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Paper: Spice Cake DSP, Pool Party, More Mustard and Natural White card stock
  • Ink: Early Espresso
  • Accessories:  Pool Party ruffled ribbon
  • Tools: Eyelet Border punch

Sympathy cards are always the hardest for me to design.  This card was inspired by a card made by another demonstrator.  The grass was stamped twice, without re-inking the stamp in between, giving a faded look to some of the strands.

  • Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Petite Pairs
  • Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron and Whisper White card stock
  • Ink: Old Olive
  • Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon (retired)
  • Tools: Modern Label and Large Oval punches

Happy Stampin',
