Card Class in the Studio

It's true...I taught a card class last night.  I wanted to feature some new products in the studio and designed a class making cards.
These are 2 of my sample cards using the new Send It Clear cards by Clear Scrap.  I used Tim's umbrella man Sizzix Die and a sheet of acrylic, then inked with Ranger's alcohol inks.    Only the top half is attached to the front of the acrylic card so that it opens as a gate-fold card. 

The card on the right has only one flap attached for demo purposes, and again I used a flower die to cut the multi-layered flower from that same sheet of acrylic, using alcohol inks as my colorant.  Don't you just love how Ranger's inks matched the scrapbook paper?  Me too.

This one looks similar, and yet the alcohol ink technique is different.   This person attached both flaps on her card, choosing to turn the 2 pieces of scrapbook paper to showcase both sides.  Clever girl.  I think these might've been made by Joyce, but that's just a guess.

I know this one looks very similar to the above card, but it was made by someone else, who also turned her papers in the very same way, but if you click on the photo you'll see the petals of her flower are standing up, not curled down.

One of those photos shows Joyce's card and the other is Mary's.  I'm pretty sure about that.

This one is definitely Sharon's because I recognize the cuffs of her sweatshirt.  She chose to have her outer papers match.  Don't you love the intense colors on her flower?
This one is Lynda's and her flower has a monochromatic look.  I like that.  These acrylic flowers can be manipulated so easily with your fingers.  No heating required.  Her petals are raised far more than mine...just personal preference.

We also made cards using Japanese Washi Tapes, Fabric Tape and Lace Tape.   I didn't photograph mine, but the 4 cards below were all made by Michele.

Wish you could've joined us.
