8/6/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

Oh my my, is it really August?

We will celebrate August birthdays on the 27th
David, Jenna & Judy!

We will start this month with a new die 
by Sizzix called Drop Ins.
They have several different styles and they have two words
 that you can drop into the frame and it cuts in in one piece.
Today's card I used the word hello.
We will be stamping the piece behind the frame.
I used watercolor pencils on one and markers on the other.


 And the third a piece of scrapbook paper I had laying on my desk.
How easy is that!

For today's c;ass please bring your basic class kit
pencil w/ eraser
black edger
favorite coloring medium

That should do it, enjoy your week and see you on Thursday!

7/30/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

I came home from class on Saturday and made two shaker cards that won't shake.
Put them aside and looked at the Tim's Perspective stamp set that was sitting on my desk
from last Thursdays card. I used two of the sentiments.
So I began by inking a piece of card stock and had to work really hard to get it smooth.
Why struggle, I pulled out some of the semi gloss paper that I have been using so much.
I also decided it was time to put Tim's new colors to work.
This is what I came up with, pretty happy with the results.
I used cracked pistachio & vintage photo on the background.
I then stamped the numbers with hickory smoke.
the butterfly is inked with fossilized amber and abandoned coral.
The corners are die cut with a Memory Box die.
The card behind the front panel is inked with vintage photo.

So for today's class you will need your basic class kit
any of the above mentioned inks
blending tools
Green wink of stella for the butterfly body

That should do it, enjoy your week and stay cool!

7/23/2015 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

Today's class the focus is on the background.
We are using distress inks, foam blending tools and stencils.
Scraps Galore just got in a bunch of the newer Tim Holtz stencils.
So not only did I need most of them I had to play with them.
4 or 5 card backs are in my trash can,
but I have 5 samples that I am happy with.
All of these are done with one color of distress ink and one stencil.

This is a symmetrical stencil and easy to continue the design across the card

There was no matching up this one but your eye sees it as the same pattern

This one was also asymmetrical, but it did match the flow of the flourishes. 

My final sample for today is using two colors (twisted citron & mermaid lagoon)
and the symmetrical stencil.
Which do you like the best?

Please bring your basic class kit
black edger
spray bottle w/ water
If you own
distress ink and foam blending tool
green marker(stem & leaf)

That should do it!

We will continue planning for August birthdays,
David, Jenna & Judy
check your calendars!

Have a great week and see you on Thursday,

I just paired it with masculine color papers.

Please bring your basic class kit including
watercolor pencils (or favorite coloring medium)
paint brush/water brush

non stick craft mat
