April Mighty Stampers Cards!

This cute little Sock Monkey is one of the cards that we created at April's Mighty Stampers meeting. This card is a hinge card with the hinge on the left side of the card. We also did a technique called gun metal on the chipboard frame. The ribbon is dyed with Taken with Teal.

Stamps: Sock Monkey, Smarty Pants
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Basic Black, Whisper WhiteInk: Going Gray, Taken with Teal, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Silver Encore
Accessories: Chipboard, white grosgrain ribbon, silver brads, Glassy Glaze embossing powder, white gel pen, Crafter's tool kit, aquapainter, heat tool

This is another type of hinge card. This one was featured in Stampin' Success (a magazine that Stampin' Up! sends to the demonstrators). Isn't this adorable? The colors are from a color challenge on Stampin' Addicts. This card also uses a technique of rubber band stamping. Check out the top portion of this card. Do you see the rubber band stamping? Cool, right? There's even a little rock and roll happening!

Stamps: Good Friend
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Accessories: Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, Soft Subtle brads, Scallop edge punch, White embossing powder, sponges, dimensionals, 1/16" circle punch, heat tool

This one in my favorite! I just love the way this card turned out. The faux alligator panel and the "chomp" out of the right corner are the best!

Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Glassy Glaze embossing powder, bone folder, heat tool

Mighty Stampers is a technique class that I teach every 2nd Tuesday of the month. We learn 5 techniques and make 3 cards. I also give out the directions to each technique so that you can have a refresher once you get home. Email me for more information or to reserve your spot in the next class!
