Bella Blossoms Class recipes & Video Tutorial

I held this class last night at my home. Bella Blossom

To see how I made these cards, check out my VERY 1st and VERY amateur video tutorial. Don't mind my sarcasm (if you can catch it) and don't mind the reversed images. I shot this 1st one from my laptop! I am not sure video is my cup of tea.....maybe with some practice! and a video camera would probably help. (I know I am my own WORST critic) Enjoy!


Left: Pink Pirouette, dauber Rose red; Ribbon Pretty in Pink

Right: Tangerine Tango, dauber More Mustard; Ribbon: Pumpkin pie

Left: Rose Red, dauber Bravo burgundy; Ribbon Rose red

Right: Lavender lace, dauber Elegant eggplant; Ribbon: elegant eggplant

Left: Baja Blue, dauber Night if Navy; Ribbon: White

Right: So Saffron, dauber More Mustard; Ribbon: very vanilla

I stamped the small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope using the same sponge dauber technique. We learned how to do this at Convention last July.

for the rest of the Recipe:

Stamps: Bella Blossoms of course, plus All Holidays
Paper: Stampin' Up! small note cards with envelopes, whisper white, so saffron, baja breeze card stock & dsp, tangerine tango, rose red, lovely lilac, pretty in pink, old olive
Ink: noted above
Accessories: ribbon to match noted above, ticket corner punch, old olive marker for the stem. accent and elements tin, top note, baja in color ribbon, jumbo eyelet


Club card spolier!

And some other versions....using the exact same paper provided in the club card packet.  I only changed up the stamps.

Stamps:  Good Friend, Loads of Love, Flight of the butterfly, Absolutely Fabulous
Paper:  Chocolate chip, tempting turquoise, whisper white, Rainbow sherbet dsp
Ink:  chocolate chip, tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie (bird beak)
Accessories:  Scallop die for the Bigshot, markers for coloring, slot punch, glitter, ribbon


How about some texturz?

I ran this through the Big shot, following the instructions on the multipurpose platform and using the texturz impressions and silicone rubber mat.  Make sure you get these if you are ordering the texturz plates.  I did NOT spritz my card stock with water or alcohol, but I did add a card stock shim to get a deeper impression.  Water or alcohol?  yes apparently you can spritz your paper to get a deeper impression.  and alcohol??  it just dries faster.

Recipe: All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Holidays and wishes
Paper: bashful blue, pacific point, riding hood red, whisper white
Ink: pacific point, old olive
Accessories:  Sizzix texturz plates & mats, ribbon

A sneak peek and a swap

This one does double duty!  I made this for a swap I am in for Sale-a-bration samples.  Don't ya just Love it??  I do!  Am I getting you excited to shop and earn some Free stamps???  

The inside of the swap card was a little different since I was in a "get it in the mail fast!" time crunch.  I can't wait to see what the other ladies have made.

Stamps:  Sale-a-bration Polka Dot punches, fundamental phrases, curvy verses
Paper:  Lots of dots DSP, so saffron, chocolate chip, whisper white
Ink:  chocolate chip
Accessories:  PUNCHES!!!  5 petal flower, wide, small and large oval.  silver brads, dimensionals


Changing it up #2- Club style

Each month members of my Stamper's 10 clubs gets a card to make in their packages.  I can't stamp images for them so I decided I would show how to take the exact same components and make 2 very different cards.

Here is the Original design of my December club card:  

I took out Pocket silhouettes and made this card with all the exact same components.  I did not paper piece the birds, instead I turned the card horizontally and trimmed the designer paper as a layer and stamped on it.   I left off the button and decided it was best suited for another card.  

For this version I skipped the paper piecing the birds, and layered with the designer paper scrap. 

So what do you think?  I like all the versions!

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Thank You kindly, Love you much (original design)
Paper:  Riding Hood red, whisper white, chocolate chip, baja blue card stock and designer paper
Ink: chocolate chip, baja breeze
Accessories:  3 flower punch, button bouquet, silver brads, silver cord, paper piercer, ribbon,
