Clearsnap Classes at CHA Show

Hi Everyone, 

I know that today is supposed to be Guest Blogger day, but since I’ve been writing about the CHA show all week, I thought I would go ahead and finish up the week with another post on the show. I promise that next Friday I will bring you another fabulous guest blogger, so stay tuned for that. 

While I was at the CHA Summer Show in Chicago a few weeks ago I taught three really cool classes at the Clearsnap booth. My love for Clearsnap’s products are no secret; they have the BEST ink products on the market, so when I get a chance to teach for them, I get so excited and I am so there! 

This is a very cute floral card that you can create in under an hour. It’s a little hard to see in the picture, but the flowers just pop out with some 3D foam tape and a little bit of Flower Soft. I hope that you get a chance to make this card for someone special in your life. If you do, send me the pictures. I’d love to see what you create! 

Thank you for joining me. Until next time…

Step 1.   Cut Blue Belle cardstock 4 ¼”W x 11”H, fold in half. This is your base. Cut another piece of Blue Belle cardstock 4 ¼”W x 5 ½”H. Score ½” and fold on the shorter side, creating a 4 ¼”W x 5”H with a ½” folded flap.  

Step 2.   Apply glue to the folded flap and adhere it to the bottom of the inside back panel of card base. Cut Pollen cardstock 4”W x 5 1/4”H.  Cut two pieces of Avalanche 3 ¾”W x 5”H. Stamp flowers with black inkpad on both pieces. One will be your base image and the other will be your “3D” image. On the 3D piece, emboss with clear powder. Using a paintbrush, color image with Smooch inks, cut out. 

Step 3.  On base image, stamp “happy day” with black inkpad and emboss. Sponge edges with stylist tool and Sky Blue inkpad. Apply foam squares to back of 3D image and adhere to base image. Stamp butterfly three times on scrap piece of Avalanche with black inkpad. Emboss with clear powder, color with Smooch inks and cut out. Adhere to base image. See picture for placement. Adhere Flower Soft to flower center with glue. Adhere base image with Pollen cardstock, and then adhere to card front. 

Step 4.  For the base of the card, cut Pollen cardstock 4”W x 4 ¾”H. Cut Guacamole cardstock 3 ¾”W x 4 ¼”H. Stamp swirl image randomly with Watermark inkpad. Stamp butterfly with Moss Green inkpad. Adhere Pollen cardstock to card base and Guacamole cardstock to Pollen.
