...December's Class Projects

These are all of the projects my Stampin' Class completed this last month. Our class was entitled "Awesome Acetate" guessed it...we used acetate in every project. This card was made using a scrap piece of acetate to make a reflection. It a CASE from Beate, and can be seen HERE along with the Reflection Tutorial. I'm not going to go into too much detail as far as the making of the cards goes, but I will give you the colors of paper and ink, measurements, accessories, and stamps used to complete each project. The colors of cardstock used were Chocolate Chip (4-1/4" X 8-1/2" and 2-5/8" X 3"), Bordering Blue (4" square), Old Olive (3-1/8" X 3-1/2"), and Very Vanilla (2-3/4" X 2-3/8"). The images are from the following sets: "Wanted", "Sanded", and "All Holidays". The ink pads used were Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Bordering Blue. The accessories list was quite lengthy, but here they are: Acetate, Aquapainters, Sponge Daubers, Brown Sharpie Marker, Silver Brads, Ticket Corner Punch, Designer Label Punch, 1/16" Handheld Punch.

This was our second project we created...a Magic Card. This photo on the left shows it in its closed position, and the one on the right is its opened position. The complete tutorial with pictures can be seen HERE. The cardstock used in this card were Basic Gray (10-1/2" X 8-1/2" ), Real Red (5-1/2" X4-1/4"), Whisper White (5-1/4" X 3-3/4" and 5" X 3-1/2"), and Acetate (5-1/4" X 4"). The images used are from the set "Baroque Motifs" and the "Baroque Border" wheel. The ink colors used include Black Staz-On, Real Red, and Basic Gray. The accessories for this card were: Paper Cutter (with scoring and cutting blades), Stamp-a-ma-jig, Coluzzle Cutting System, Scissors, Hobby Blade, Adhesive, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-a-Dile, Red Organdy Ribbon, Copper Cording, and the 1-1/4" Circle Punch.

I just love this technique, but I will never demonstrate in a class EVER ladies know exactly what I mean! LOL! This class definitely gave my ladies a chance to really get to know their paper cutters. We were cutting and scoring like women possessed! Several of them learned how to read their cutters, too. They learned where the 1/16's and 1/8's measurements were found. I was so proud of them!

And our final project was a Clear Sleeve Nugget Box. The photo on the left shows it in its closed position, and the one on the right shows it opened. The complete tutorial can be seen HERE. We used the following cardstock and dimensions: Bashful Blue (5-1/4" X 5" and 2-13/16" X 2-5/8"), Wild Wasabi (2-1/4" X 2"), Purely Pomegranate (2-7/8" X 2-3/4" and 2-3/4" X 1-1/8"), Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper (3" X1" used to wrap the individual nuggets, and 2-5/8" X 1"), and lastly Acetate (7-3/8" X 3-1/16"). The stamp sets used for this one were "Label Classics" and "Sincere Salutations". The only ink used was Black Staz-On. Luckily, there weren't as many accessories with this one. The list includes a Paper Cutter (with scoring and cutting blades), Adhesive, Scissors, Dimensionals, and Hershey's Nuggets of your choice.

Well that's it for today! Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to get these on here before it was too late! I have another class in just a couple of weeks, and I hope to post those as soon as they are completed. Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all tomorrow!
