So Very Grateful — Project #3

So Very Grateful Easel Card
This was the third card we made in this month's Stamp of the Month class.  It is an easel card — it folds down flat to mail it and then the recepient can prop up the picture for display.  We use a doily behind the stamped image which I think adds a special touch to this card.  I cased the layout for this card from fellow demonstrator Julie Davison, making a few slight changes to make it my own card.  I hope you enjoyed this stamp set as much as I have.  Watch for cards this week using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit from my Big Shot class.

So Very Grateful Project 2

So Very Grateful Strawberry Slush
This is the second card that we made at my Stamp of the Month Class.  I love doing different fold cards and I believe I cased this fold from Linda Bauman.  It just give the card a different look — the little flap on the left side of the card lifts up to expose the panel of Whisper White cardstock to write you message.  I used the Distressed Dots Embossing Folder from Sale-a-Bration brochure.  The flower image is colored in using markers.  Another card that is quick and easy with a fun look.

So Very Grateful Blushing Bride
I love the simple elegance of this stamp set — So Very Grateful — it can be found in the Occassions Catalog.  So Very Grateful was my Stamp of the Month set at class last night.  For this card we stamped the image with VersaMark stamp pad on Watercolor Paper and used Black Embossing Powder.  Then we used lots of stamp pads and Aqua Painters to watercolor the image.  I love using the watercolor paper — I feel like an artist when I use it — it makes watercoloring easy for anyone to do.

Check back tomorrow for another card that we made at my Stamp of the Month Class.
