Beginner Class Winter Session Week #3!



I taught my beginner class two new techniques last week during my beginner class. We are almost half-way through our 8-week class time already. Time flies when we are having fun. So for the first card, I showed the girls how to use a Clear Block to stamp a background obviously called "Clear Block Stamping":




All you do is tap, tap, tap the clear block onto an ink pad to get it wet and stamp over a cardstock piece. This is better-achieved when you place a Stampin' Pierce Mat under the cardstock piece to give the stamping a little bit of cushion. Once the block image was stamped, we added a silhouette image fand a sentiment. This is a quick & easy 10 minute card!




Card #2 took a little longer to create because of all of the stamping. This technique is called "Triple Layer Stamping":




We started out by sparingly gluing the 3 white layers on top of each other and stamping all of the images. So you are actually stamping 3 layers at a time. This creates a little bit of white space around the outside of each layer so that's why we take the layers apart and glue the colored cardstock in-between each layer:




Pretty neat huh? I have a step-by-step tutorial that teaches you how to create this card and the tutorial includes all the measurements you'll need. Click on the link below. Have a good day!
