August's Class Projects

I had my monthly Class yesterday, the day after I hosted aPampered Chef party. Whew! But at least I only had to clean the house once! ;)

The first project we did was this card using the Double Rainbow technique from Technique Junkies, (LOVE that newsletter!) I originally was making this for my Brother's birthday (he's stationed in Korea right now.) I showed it to my DH and he scrunched his nose and commented on it being really "orange". Hmmmm, well, the Pumpkin Patch Spectrum pad only has one orange, the other colors are Really Rust, Ruby Red, More Mustard and Old Olive. That doesn't seem like too much orange to me! Besides, look at all that black and green!!! *grrrr* *deep breath* So back to the drawing board for his card, but I still liked this card and the technique used so I used it for my class.

Stamps: With Gratitude; Ink: Pumpkin Patch Spectrum, White CRAFT, Basic Black, VersaMark; Paper: Green Galore, Basic Black, Glossy; Accessories: Brayer, Crop-A-Dile, Black eyelets, White Emboss Powder.

One of my regular customers is pregnant and due in a couple months and I had talked to her about doing a pocket card for birth announcements. I decided to do a pocket card this month to show her how easy they are. (Wouldn't you know she couldn't make it this month, but she came to my PC party and I showed her there.) ;)

Here is the inside layer pulled up so you can see. Perhaps I'll send this one to my brother, certainly I couldn't go wrong with green and blue could I?!

Stamps: On the Spot B/G, Seeing Spots, Little Pieces, Hugs and Wishes; Ink: Brilliant Blue, Certainly Celery, Old Olive (that little pieces circle punched out on the center of the blue circle); Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Brilliant Blue; Accessories: Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain and Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Rounded Tab punch, 1/2" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Sticky Strip.
