The outlines were made using a Micron 01 fine tip black marker drawing a line 1/4" in on all sides. These are all 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square cards. On this heart card we added a twine bow and a little heart sticky gem by Amuse.
This set is full of wonderful sentiments that coordinate with the images. And with the stamped outline stitches - people are going to think you are a wiz with your sewing machine because it looks like real stitching doesn't it!?!
Our first class on Friday night was taught by Donna Cecere. (Hi GF!!) Her project was this lovely set of 3 cards tucked inside a stamped clear box. We stamped on the box with black Staz On Ink then colored the image from the inside of the box with Copics. We colored the flowers stamped on Kraft CS with Copics, cut them out layered them on panels and added stickles and Glossy Accents to the centers. Very cute huh!?!?
Here's Donna on the front left and Julie Masse (one of the organizer's) on the front right.
The third person on the left here with the blue top - is Sandy from Epping, NH - and she gave me this wonderful stamped linen that she made using Waltzingmouse Stamps - isn't it wonderful??? thank you SO much Sandy!!!
Lauren Meader's project was one of her not yet released templates - and we each got the stamp set we used for this project. Whoo hoo! Check her store to see all her wonderful stamps, templates and digital stuff!!
Isn't this a super gift package?!?After a delicious lunch of specialty deli sandwiches, popovers, sugared walnut, mixed greens salad and little pastries (Yum!!!) Monika Davis inspired us with a pretty spring easel card and matching magnetic bookmark (these are popping up everywhere aren't they?? wink wink - see Fridays post!) We used Just Rite stamps and a Martha Stewart punch on this project.
Below is Monika sitting at the front table just prior to starting her class. Julie Masse and Kim Schofield are giving away more prizes that were generously donated by several sponsoring companies.
For the last class of the weekend - Cindy Lawrence taught us how to make this terrific file folder organizer. The stamp set we used is Dandy Days by Our Craft Lounge.
The papers are My Mind's Eye/Little Boy Blue. Look at all the fun sections on this! Can you believe it's made by folding a regular manila file folder!!
Here's Cindy holding one of the WMS Sewing Box Hugs sets that she was lucky enough to win!
Now don't you wish you had come to Stamping Around???
