Hi everyone, we have a lot of exciting events happening at the Paper Garden for the month of April. We're so happy to have Linda Carnell owner and lead designer for A Muse art stamps teach classes on April 13th and 14th, we still have some openings so please call the store if you're interested at 916-487-2737!
Also, we have a make and take on Tuesday from 11:30am-1:30pm... I still have to figure out what we'll be making!!! Speaking of make and takes, every Saturday from 11am-2pm we have free make and takes that will be geared for brides! Please come by and see all of our cool ideas!! We welcome anyone, you can also use these ideas for birthday parties as well as any kind of celebration.
Here's two of six cards that I made for the upcoming asian card class-- have you signed up yet? We hope to see you soon.
This is a fun pocketfold that is just a half of an 8.5 X 11 cut the long way. I stamped celebrate from the cat's pajama's and then stamped the impress branch with impress cherry blossoms in pink and orchid pastel. I then scallop the edge with the marvy paper trimmer using the scalloped edge(love this tool!!!) and used doubled sided ribbon to tie it together. With this invitation you don't need any kind of hole punch, the ribbon will hold the pocket together.
I just used a portion of the stamp and then stamped this sketch butterfly onto cardstock by rubbermoon and then stamped it again on washi paper and cut it out and then raised it.
I then took a piece of black cardstock and stamped it onto a black piece of paper with brilliance moonlight white and used the yellow scallop circle marvy punch and stamped "best wishes" (it fits inside there really well!)
This last card is not for the asian class, it's just one I made for the super simple card class. I stamped a stampendous flower in color box chalk tangerine and pastel pink all over and used doodlebug gemstones to go in the middle. I then used a small tag punch and stamped with love by memory box and adhered it to ribbon. So simple!
