March Class Projects

Well, it has been one of those week's and I've not had any chance to stamp for just me! I did complete two cards for my class this week and here they are.

This first one was born from my desire to use Technostampers' sketch challenge #8 and I wanted to use a new stamp set from the Occasion's Mini. I think that this is one of my favorite stamp sets! I love the elegance of it! The sentiment is a little amiss because it is a single line stamp and I used my marker to color one part at a time per line and use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line it up. After I stamped, then I punched! ;) The center image is black embossed with detail black EP and I forgot to use my embossing buddy and you can really tell. That Afternoon Tea DS paper is just so yummy!

I was inspired by girl3boys0 on SCS, here. As you can see, I used the same layout, just changed up the colors and stamped image. I used Porcelain Prints DS paper for the top layer, I find myself using this DS paper frequently as I really like the soft elegance. I showcased the SAB rub-ons. They are soooo very easy to use and are so sharp on both the DS paper and the textured c/s.

The bottom panel is some paper from my Pallet O'Prints. I am still using that up! You can earn some similar paper by hosting a workshop (or placing an order) that qualifies for a level one hostess item. The Prints Pack designer Series Paper (111827) is on page 19 of the Spring-Summer Collection 2008 catalog.
