Petal Potpourri Tulare Class Thanks Card

Hi Stamping Friends!!

I am having a blast designing cards for my upcoming classes. I miss designing for my monthly card club, so this has been a real treat for me. If you are interested in coming to my Tulare classes on February 15th, visit this blog post for more info... BEST. DAY. EVER.

Stamps: Petal Potpourri
Paper: Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Best Year Ever DSP
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Hello You Thinlits, Flower Medallion Punch, Best Year Ever Ribbon, Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon, Honeycomb EF, Large Pearl (retired)

The class will be featuring the Petal Potpourri stamp set, Flower Medallion Punch, and Crazy About You stamp set. I've also been adding the Hello You Framelits to the cards even though those are not a required class purchase. 

If you do buy the Hello You Framelits, there is a great tip floating around the internet about how to use them. I would credit the original Stampin' Up! demonstrator who "discovered" this trick, but I'm not sure who found it first. There have been all kinds of gals sharing it, so I'm going to share it too...

Create a Big Shot "sandwich" using an unscented dryer sheet, card stock, wax paper, and your Thinlit die (in that order). Sandwich it all between two clear plastic plates and run it through your Big Shot using your magnetic platform. Works like a charm. 

I used to despise intricate and detailed Thinlits because the card stock would get stuck inside the die or it would stick to the plastic plate and would tear trying to pry it off. Not anymore!! Can't wait to try it on my new Butterfly Thinlits!! A BIG thank you to the inventor of this little tip. And thanks for sharing it!

If you do not live in the Tulare County area and cannot attend the class, there is always Option B which is available anywhere in the U.S.
