March Technique Class - Direct to Paper with Sponge Daubers Cards

This week we had our monthly Technique Class with the Direct to Paper with Sponge Daubers.  What a fun technique, not only did we learn how to use this technique BUT we found out how munch fun it was and that it gives us a softer image.  When you stamp using ink pads, the image is crisp and clear.  With the DTP-Sponge Daubers the image is softer, almost like a watercolor image.

Here are the cards that we made, along with the instructions and supplies used.

 Here is the Fancy Fold Card - Pleated Skirt Fold
This fold can be challenging but with a few score lines and folds, you can create this lovely girly card!  Here are the dimensions and directions:

Taking the DS paper which measures 7 3/4 x 3, On the right side of the paper make a tick at 1 ¼” along the short end and at 3” on the long end, line this up at an angle in your cutter and cut that corner off.  Line up the uncut edge and score at 3”, 3 ½”, 5” & 6 1/8”. Fold accordion style on the score lines, back and forth.  Trim to 7” so that once it is folded it will fit on the Hello Honey layer.  Add some adhesive to the back of each pleat to hold the folds in place. Add some adhesive to the front pleats to also hold them in place. Complete the project.

Here are the Supplies:
