Autumn Spice Card Class

These are the cards I designed for my next card class. I had to postpone the class for a week. I will be having it next week, instead. The nice thing about it is I can tell the ladies that are coming they can see what they will be making if they visit my blog. I usually don't have the cards done before I have the class. I do think it would be great if I did have them prepared ahead of time. I do believe it helps people decide easier if they would want to attend the class or not.

I still think it is funny, how a card that I think I am not going to like, ends up being my favorite. With that said, that is exactly how I felt about the very first card you see in this post. I just wasn't sure how I was going to get it to all go together. The other thing I was concerned about was the stamped image. I knew there wouldn't be a lot of time for the ladies to color it in. After I stamped the image I used the spritzer tool all over the image. Lastly, I used a stampin' sponge and went around the edge of the top note. I am happy with the end result.

I have seen some other demonstrators criss cross their ribbon on their cards. I wanted to try it sometime. That is exactly what I did on this card.

For this card, the Autumn Spice DSP is the main focus. I just added a few things to it to embellish it and make it into a Fall card.

Last, but not least, I tried to make it look like the stamped image is on a placemat. The new embossing folder "Square Lattice" gave it the textured look it needed, as well as, cutting the edges and making them look frayed.

This should be a fun class. As long as my class attendees are happy, that is what counts. As always, all supplies are Stampin' Up! except this time I used color pencils to color in the image on the last card.

Thanks for looking, leave a comment, and it is your turn to...........Go-n-stamp!!

I love all of these Chris -- awesome cards for Fall class! I haven't had a chance for this yet, as my ladies want to do Christmas this month -- but hopefully next month. Thanks for the great ideas.
