May 14 was our monthly Stamping Technique Class where we learnt the technique Faux Tile. To create this unique background, you can use your scoring blade on your cutting machine or a ruler. I decided to use the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored and added the Diagonal plate for the diagonal score lines. I have to admit that the Simply Scored and Diagonal plate took a technique that could have been very difficult because of all of the measuring and turned it into a fun and fast technique. All of the ladies loved how it took a nice card and made it into a GREAT card!!
This was the first card, we used our Stampin' Up! Simply Scored with the Diagonal Plate and scored every one inch horizontally then turned it vertical and scored it every one inch. The cardstock that we used is the Retiring Stampin' Up! Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush. The stampset was a "sneak peak" from the new Stampin' Up! catolog that will be coming out on June 1st, its called Bright Blossoms
And that is it!! I am already getting ideas for the June class, we will be stamping with bleach and I am sure it will be another fun class!! If you are interested in attending class, there is always room or if you would like to just purchase the cards, let me know by email.
Take care, Enjoy the holiday weekend, hopefully it will be nice weather wherever you are. We had some big thunderstorms move through this afternoon, alot of wind gusts and rain but lucily no real damage. We did loose two pine trees that just blew right over by the roots.
