Another Stampin’ Class, another night of fun! I enjoy getting out of the house, and having a fun night with the ladies that come to my PaperCrafting classes! Of course, I love papercrafting, but the camaraderie and friendship are so special to me. The ladies always love the projects we make, and I wanted to share one of those projects with you now:
I love the look of a Black & White card with a pop of a bold, bright color. Melon Mambo, this deliciously bright pink, does the job! It really Pops against the B&W! This card follows the rule of thirds: a color should be repeated 3 times. I used the Melon Mambo for the flower, the ribbon and the enamel dot accents. This is a simple card to make but it really says “WOW!”
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut to 4-1/4″ x 11, then scored to created a standard size card with the fold at top. A piece of Basic Black cardstock cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ was adhered to the face. A small strip of Black DSP from the Neutrals DSP stack, cut to 2″ x 3-3/4″ was adhered along the right side about 3/4″ up from the bottom. A strip of Whisper White was stamped with Black Archival ink and the stem from the Grateful Bunch stamp set. The flower was stamped in Melon Mambo ink and cropped out using the Blossom Bunch Punch and popped up on a stampin’ dimensional. A piece of Melon Mambo ribbon was tied around and this layer was also popped up on dimensionals. A few enamel dots in Melon Mambo finish off the card!
Easy peasy, but oh, so striking!
The Ladies had so much fun.
And they were so proud of the finished projects they made! Nothing makes me happier than to see someone who has never stamped before complete a project they can be proud of! I love sharing my passion for papercrafting, and the tips & techniques I’ve learned along the way with others! Classes are a great way for me to do that.
I wish everyone reading this could come to my classes! If you are in the Scranton, PA area, you can! If you don’t, well, it probably won’t be very convenient, but…..maybe you won’t have to! I am going to start on-line classes in June! Yes, you read that right. So that means that no matter where you live, you can still stamp with me, via video! Cool, right?
I’ll be sharing more info on that shortly, and you, my blog readers will be the first to hear about it! But in the meantime, you can send me ideas of things you’d like to learn! I’ll be happy to take your questions and suggestions and turn them into classes!
And I’ll be sharing the 2nd project we made in a few days so stop back. And remember, if you want to order any of the supplies I used to make this project, please shop my online store here. Thanks! And feel free to pin this project or share it with your on facebook if you like it.
See you, soon!
