June 2018 Class – Climbing Orchid

A big THANKYOU to all who came to my classes last week.

We made four cards using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and  Orchid Builder matching Framelits. This beautiful set has carried over from the last catalogue. I bought it a long time ago but only got the chance to play with it recently.

The first card I cased from “Short Cake Scraps”. We used the double layered stamp to create this lovely card. The card base was made using Fresh Fig card stock and card front was on Very Vanilla. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:


The second card was inspired by a card in the new  2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (pg. 24). I used blushing bride for the card front and stamped the orchid in Melon Mambo ink. The Ruffled 3D dynamic embossing folder created a beautiful background.

Products used to make this project:


The third card is my design. I think the Old Olive matches so well with the new in-colour Grapefruit Grove. Everyone had their own choice of greetings. ‘Thinking of you’ covers a lot of occasions.

Products used to make this project:


The fourth card was inspired by a card on pg 21 of the 2017-2018 catalogue. We distressed the edges of the card front for a little extra texture. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:


Everyone loved the cards they created and are looking forward to the next class. If you would like to join us, please see the class schedule. There won’t be a July class as I will be away but we’ll be back on deck in August.

Which adhesive should you use?

One size fits all is a great concept for things like elastic belts, but not so much for adhesives. There’s a reason Stampin’ Up! offers nine different adhesives. Each adhesive has its own merits and everyone has their favourites.

Here’s a brief rundown of each adhesive:

AdhesiveWhat it isWhy we like it
Fine-Tip Glue PenLiquid glue with a pin in the cap to keep the tip clear and flowingThe thin stream of glue is great for a strong hold on tiny accents.
Foam Adhesive Strips22.9 cm long strips of double- sided adhesive foamPerfect for shaker cards or spinner cards.
Trim to the length you need.
Mini Glue DotsIndividual dots of adhesiveSticky dots of glue provide strong hold for small elements.
Multipurpose Adhesive SheetsTouch-and-peel adhesivePress an element such as a die cut onto a sheet, pull it up and adhere.
Multipurpose Liquid GlueLiquid glue in a dual-tipped bottle: narrow and broad tipsHolds cardstock, large embellishments, small embellishments and glitter
SNAIL AdhesiveDouble-sided tape in small caseLightweight and portable adhesive can go with you anywhere.
Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini
Stampin’ Dimensionals
Double-sided adhesive foam dotsAdd instant depth. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on smaller pieces.
Tear & Tape AdhesiveEasy-to-tear double-sided tapeNo measuring or cutting—just stick it to your project, then tear.

Tip: See the chart on p. 203 of the Annual Catalogue for more suggested uses for each adhesive
