Last few places on the Stamptacular and a class card

Here is another card from Saturday's technique class. We has a great afternoon and I think it's safe to say that the faux dry embossing technique was the big success of the day. Everyone loved the results they got with it. They soon got the hang of the Stamp-a-ma-jig and seemed surprised at how easily they got such a professional look.

The ruffled ribbon technique was a little more of a challenge. We had a few broken threads and threads that pulled all the way out, but by the time everyone had practised it a few times we were getting there and again they loved the finished result.

If you missed out on the technique class, there's still a chance to snag one of the last few places at our Stamptacular on Sunday. A goodie bag, 3 full projects, light lunch, refreshments, bonus project and free prize draw, all for £30 or £27 if you bring a friend! Please email me straight away to guarantee your place or use the Paypal button on the right for immediate, secure payment.

Stamp sets: Sincere Salutations, Fine Flourish
Cardstock: Rose Red, Regal Rose, River Rock, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: Rose Red, Not Quite Navy
Seam Binding Ribbon: Rose Red
Bigz Dies: Top Note, Beautiful Butterflies
Embossing Folder: Vintage Wallpaper
Other: Clear Rhinestones (or Basic Pearls, lol)

The card blank is an A6 landscape of Regal Rose, matted with Rose Red card. Very Vanilla and River Rock card were cut with the Top Note die and the sentiment stamped in the top right of the Vanilla layer with Rose Red ink. The River Rock layer was cut to a little less than half and run through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder before adhering to the Very Vanilla layer. Ruffled Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around the join and secured at the back before popping these layers up on dimensionals on the card front. Two butterflies were die cut from Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze card using the Beautiful Butterflies die. They were both stamped with the Fine Flourish using Not Quite Navy ink. A Clear Rhinestone was used to secure them to each other before popping up on the card front with dimensionals.

Admission - I forgot to pack the Clear Rhinestones on Saturday, so we improvised with Basic Pearls (I always have the Basic Pearls or Rhinestones with me because they're perfect for every project) and used a glue dot to secure the two butterflies together.

Please remember to pop back tomorrow for the SUDSOL blog tour:
