What a fun class! -Faux Plaster


First of all, I would love to thank all of the lovely ladies who joined in for both classes on Saturday!  We had 8 wonderful ladies in the technique class, and 9 in the afternoon album class.  You all made it such a success and a fantastic day!  It was a real pleasure meeting you all.  I hope you will join in again on the next class.  Stay tuned for details...

I do have two more kits left that are for sale.  If anyone is interested in the kit, written instructions and video tutorial, please contact me.  If there is enough interest, I will do another class! Let me know what you think!

Over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog, the challenge this week is to use flowers in your project.  For me, this is a very easy one as I LOVE flowers!  ... AND I have lots of dies and paper in my stash. :)

The card I am sharing this week is part of the set of cards from my most recent class - fundraiser.  The technique we did is called Faux Plaster.  I first learned about this technique on SplitcoastStampers technique forums.  You can find their tutorial here.  I did make a few adjustments to the process, but the basic idea is the same.

Here is the card I am featuring for this week's challenge:

The background was created with the Sizzix Rose Vines embossing folder and the Faux Plaster technique,  The flower on the bottom left corner was made with Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppies stamp and die.  We ended up running out of time in the class, so we used an acrylic flower that we painted with Distress Paint instead of making our own die cut flower.  That will be fun in another class :)

Here are the other cards and the box that were part of the class:


The tag was cut with an EK Success Punch, edged with Abandoned Coral Distress Paint and tied on with raffia.  The stamp is from Stampendous.


Cut and divided panel.  Stamped with a CTMH Sentiments stamp.  Raffia bow.


Distressed edges with a touch of Citron Distress Paint to make it pop.  Sentiment stamped on vellum with embossing powder and heat set...popped up with foam tape and pearls added.


Divided vertical panels.  The butterfly is cut from  MemoryBox dies.  The sentiment was die cut from Elizabeth Craft with StickIt on the back.

This is the box that holds all the cards.  It is a "Book-Style" box, with a belly band closure.  The Ovals are cut from Spellbinders Nestabilities dies.  The butterfly is punched with a Stampin'Up Punch from one of the panels we created.

I hope you enjoyed looking at our fun project and that it inspires you to Use Your Stuff!  Please join our challenge this week and show us what you create with flowers!

Until Next Time...
Happy Scrappin'!
