Sketch Card number two! Toucan!

The next of my sketch cards I'd like to share is the ZOO Babies Toucan card.  Again it featured the Postage Stamp Punch for this one we used the one inch square punch to create a mask -we had done this in Technique class a couple years ago.  we punched out sticker paper with the Postage stamp punch and then adhered it to a window sheet and punched the center out with the one inch punch.  Then you line up the edges of the window sheet postage stamp over the punched out Postage stamp you are using on your project.  We used a sponge dauber to sponge Wild Wasabi ink into the window and then stamped the Toucan and the "wish big"  We repeated nine times and then I had everyone start in a corner and work their way out and up to aline the images.  I had used our adhesive sheets to back the Whisper White card stock so it was like we were adhering a sticker.

Sketch Card number one

 Here is the first of the three cards we did at my last Sketch Class.  I featured the much under used Postage stamp punch.  Crumb Cake and our lovely new Blue Lost Lagoon.  There is also a new embossing folder for the background and Polk-a-dot Pieces Stamp Set.  This seemed like an easy sketch until you try to get all your rows straight then ugh!  I did a sort of Umbra effect by stamping three shades of blue and stamping one twice three time each color. 
I think it is Lost Lagoon, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana.

June Hostess Club

 Embarrassingly late posting last month club project.  This was a big hit with my club stampers.

We used the Bundle that contains Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and Flower Fair Framelits Dies.  We cut one of the large flower and two each of the other flowers.  Fringe scissors were used to grass up the front mountain.

Technique Class for June-

Starburst Card-Cut in half on diagonal one piece of DSP 4 1/2  x 1.5 and two different patterns of  DSP 4 x 1 1/2, 3 x 1 1/2 2 x 1 1/2.  Place a small punched circle one third of the way down from the top edge and one third of the way in from the left of a card stock piece 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Arrange the wedges of DSP in a star burst pattern with points toward the small circle.  stagger and alternate.  Cover the center with a stamped embellishment of some sort.  Trim all the edges of DSP that hang over the edges of the cardstock panel.  Mount on card stock mat and embellish as desired. 
I don't know where the time goes-I'm so behind on my blog posts!  I vow to do better!  Today I'm arriving back from convention and finally got my picture to load on to my computer so I'm sharing my Technique card from June.  It is a starburst technique that was so much fun to do.
