Class 5, Summer Blooms
Our last class for the event was Summer Blooms. This set does not include a stamp, but consists of layering stencils and a die. I have to admit, I was kind of lost, skipping what is usually the first step, stamping. But as you can see by the finished cards, it was pretty okay not having a stamp to start with. And our teacher Angela Simpson was so fun to work with.
For our first card we made used not just the Summer Blooms stencils and die, but also this super delicate gazebo die. This die could also be used as a birdcage or church, I think. With the right elements you can make it anything you want to really. Here's how we used it with this set.
This time we made a horizontal oriented mini slimline card using the Mini Slimline Frame dies, and heat embossed the sentiment in the center of the window. This sentiment is from the Heart Smiles sentiment stamp set from the kit.
For our extra credit project, we again used the gazebo die with the foliage but in a totally different, and extra cheerful way, inking each of the leaf sets in a different rainbow color.
