February card class - "Man Oh Man"

This month's class focuses on cards for men. We will be making 3 cards and a gift box (using the Boutique Boxes Designer printed kit from the new mini catalogue).

The class is on Saturday 16 February 2013 at 7pm. Cost is $20 and includes prepared kits for each project, ingredient lists and light refreshment. Instructions for each project will be put on the blog after the class.

Paper Arts Pals Challenge 151

This card is based on a challenge by Paper Art Pals to create a card using their sketch:
PPA151 SketchMy design uses the Parker Patterns DSP from the new mini catalogue from Stampin Up, as well as the new Natural Trim Ribbon.

This card is also part of my February class - "Man Oh Man".

Instructions from January "Oh So Sweet!" Class - Part 4

 The 3D project was a 2013 Desk Calendar using the "Feeling Sentimental" Stamp set from Sale-A-Bration 2013.
It was cased from a desk calendar by Diane Barnes (Check out her original using punch art to decorate)


·        Island Indigo – 21 x 14.8cm, 6 x 2cm, 3.1 x 1.2cm
·        Sycamore Street DSP – 13.8 x 6.4cm (SAB 2013)
·        Tangerine Tango – 14.2 x 6.9, 5.2 x 6.1cm
·        Sahara Sand ink
·        Whisper White – 5 x 5.9cm
·        Island Indigo 3/8” Ruffled Ribbon
·        Feeling Sentimental stamp set (SAB 2013)
·        Calendar

1.       Score the Island Indigo 21 x 14.85cm card on the long side at 7.5cm, 15cm, 17.5cm and 20cm. Fold the card at each score line and, using Sticky Strip, attach the 1cm to the other end of the card, making a triangular prism.
2.       Layer the 13.8 x 6.4cm DSP to the Tangerine Tango 14.2 x 6.9cm card. Attach the Island Indigo ribbon across the front of the DSP and card, using Sticky Strip, then attach to the desk calendar front.
3.       Stamp the Wheel image from the “Feeling Sentimental” Stamp set (one of the sets available from Sale-A-Bration this year) using Sahara Sand ink on the Whisper White 5 x 5.9cm card. Attach this to the front of the desk calendar.
4.       A month by month calendar was produced on the computer, printed and trimmed and stapled to make the month-by-month pad. You can also purchase these from various places (which I found out after preparing for class). Cover the top of the pad with the Island Indigo 6 x 2cm card, scored at 1cm on the short side, then attach to the front of the desk calendar.
5.       Attach the 2013 from the printed calendar onto Island Indigo 3.1 x 1.2cm card and attach to the front of the desk calendar
