Here's the Scoop Class....

Recently, I held a "Here's the Scoop" class.  Attendees came to get the scoop on Stampin' Up! products and to get a scoop - of ice cream!  It was perfect since the weather here in the Sacramento area has been pretty hot this summer.  All of this week's cards (with the exception of Technique Tuesday) will be from the class and I will share the "scoop" with you!  These cards were all inspired by cards I saw in the gallery at SplitCoastStampers but, as always, I gave them a bit of a twist of my own.
Here's the first card we made.  It uses Pool Party, Midnight Muse (my new favorite color) and Summer Starfruit for the colors.  The stamp sets used were Reason to Smile (the promotion in July - I hope you took advantage of that promotion) and Itty Bitty Banners.
Here's the inside of the card.  If you saw my Stippled Blossoms card last week, you will know that I don't like using the Stamp-a-ma-jig - it just takes too much time.  Here you can see that I didn't match it up really well but I don't think it looks bad this way.  I took full advantage on the front of the card where it was intentionally not matched up.
Okay, here's the scoop on this card:
  1. Framelits:  Use a Post-It Note to hold the framelit in place when aligning on a stamped image.
  2. Sizzlets: For intricate designs, DSP will cut well with the “sizzlet sandwich” below. For cardstock, you will need to use copy paper or a metal shim to get a better cut. You can also go back and forth but make sure to tape your cardstock to the Sizzlet so it won’t move. Place the paper face down onto the Sizzlet.
  3. Folders: New folders are larger and may need cutting along the bottom edge if you need it go into the Big Shot sideways.
Sizzlet Sandwich:

  • Platform with Tab 1
  • Cutting Plate
  • Sizzlet
  • Cardstock
  • (Copy paper or metal shim, if needed)
  • Cutting Plate
