Stair step card #2

My Funky Folds class the other night was a big hit... It took my stampers a bit longer than they are used to though!!
BUT I did warn them that it was an advanced class!! This was the favorite of the night... they all loved the Fifth Avenue Floral card, but who can resist cupcakes??

this is a side view.. again I got the idea off of Splitcoast, but altered the dimensions to fit my theme... and I wanted it to fit into a "regular" envelope.....

Coloring was with a mix of inkpads, and markers.. the image was stamped in basic Black and colored with chocolate chip, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink, shadows where done in Shara Sand

The cupcake was stamped 2 times using Regal Rose classic ink, once on Regal Rose cs and once on US white, then cut out. the Flowers were also punched in Regal Rose.

the center step has the sentiment....

I think this is my favorite part of the card... I just love those cupcakes from the hostess set " The more the merrier" They were colored and cut out, then placed using dimensionals.

Card base 5 ½ x 8 ½ (Pretty in Pink)
Cut 2 ¼ inches in from 7/8 to 6 3/8
On the wider side, Score up to cut line at 7/8, 1 ¾, 3, at 4 ¼ all the way across and up to the cut line at 6 3/8 .
mountain fold the section that only has one score line.
Mountain and valley fold the score lines, with the center fold down,
Layer and add embellishments

I used Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose with this card.
what do you think? which one is your favorite card from this class???
want to come to one of my classes? let me know!

fabric shopping

So have you every went to the store to get something and found lots of other things that you just had to have? I went into a Quilt shop here in Florence call Wend-Daze ( I think) it is just north of Fredmeyers on HWY 101. I have always loved that store, but don't go in very often... I have way more fabric already than I know what to do with!
BUT look what I found... I can't wait to make some supper cute purses with these!!
Oh and I just went in for the pink, and the chocolate color. That chocolate is so perfect... it is so dark!!

So as soon as I get them all made I will share a pic with you... who knows I may even make up so to sell!!

Directions for Stair Step card

Stair Step cards
You can make these cards many different ways, but here are the dimensions to recreate this one that we made at Funky folds class ( 4-12-10)
Card stock size 5 ½ x 11 score at 1,2,4,6 and 8 ½ ( Rose red )
mountain and valley fold score lines
Layer cardstock or Designer paper onto card base.
Add embellishments.

Coloring technique used this month, water coloring with markers. Stamp image in basic black, on US white cardstock then let dry. Using marker color of choice, draw a line next to the image lines. Use a blender pen to move color. Repeat for darker colors. When finished with lightest color move onto a darker shade.
Check back to see the other stair step card we made... I like it even better and think you will too!
Want to come to one of my classes? email me for details.
