Back to School!

For our August club meeting we crafted three different projects.  The first was a standard sized card using the I Think You're Great stamp set.

Item Description
Item #
Tangerine Tango Card Stock
Schoolhouse Designer Paper
Writing Notes Clear Mount Background Stamp
I Think You’re Great Stamp Set
Cucumber Crush Stamp Pad
Handheld Stapler
Whisper White Card Stock
Soft Sky Stamp Pad
Punch Corner Project Life

1.      Cut the tangerine tango card stock into two pieces to form two card bases.
2.      Cut whisper white card stock to a 4x51/2” piece.  Use the soft sky stamp pad and the writing notes background stamp, stamp the piece.  This should be trimmed to 3 ½” x 5” piece and the corners rounded using the punch corner.
3.      Kissing technique:
a.      Ink up the “hi!” stamp with cucumber crush stamp pad
b.      Using the “scalloped” stamp “kiss” the stamp against the scalloped stamp which will create a patterned stamp
c.       Stamp your image onto spare whisper white
d.      Cut out using scissors
4.      Trim your choice of the Schoolhouse Designer paper to 2” x 4” and trim with the triple banner punch.
5.      Trim another piece of designer series paper to 1” x 6” and trim with the triple banner punch.
6.      Layer the banners onto the background stamped whisper white piece and staple the “hi!” piece, and two banner pieces together.
7.      Adhere these to the tangerine tango card base
8.      Use your choice of Washi tape onto the bottom left corner of the background stamp.
