Monthly Class - July...

Hi all

Today I am here to share with you the makes from this month's monthly class!  I used the lovely new stamp set, Awesomely Artistic which just loans itself to make beautiful collage style cards so I tried to give you some other ideas too but I must confess collage nearly won, every time!!

We started with a project which was this delightful little gift box which opens up to create a bowl like design.  It is hard to explain but hopefully you will see what I mean in the photos below.

 



 
 
We then went on to make this card which is a simple banner card but the glittered wings of the dragonfly gives it a little sparkle (any excuse to add glitter and we used it quite a lot in this class!)

 


 The second card we made is an anniversary card but this time in Island Indigo.


The third card we made is in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz and using a greeting from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit.

 
And then a few more cards just for inspiration.
 
 
 
 
 
 

I hope you like them.

Stamp, Stick & Create - July

Hi all

Today I am just dropping in to share with you the cards we made in this month's Stamp, Stick & Create.  I have quite a few of the lovely new stamps which I haven't, as yet, had much time to play with so I took the opportunity to use a few new stamps and bits for this month's class.  The first stamp set which literally arrived a few days before the class was Garden in Bloom and the stamp that I love the most is the bumble bee so we created this.

 
 

We lightly coloured the Honeycomb embossing folder with Crushed Curry ink before running it through the Big Shot.  We had fun with this little bee!!!

The next set we used was Birthday Blossoms, this set was actually a present from a friend on my birthday and I love it.  We used the stamp with the lots of little blossoms on it and stamped it directly on to the Tip Top Taupe card front and then painted it in with Mint Macaron, I adore these two colours together.

 
 
Finally I used an old favourite, Petite Petals but used the new Elegant Dots embossing folder for the background, the new Pretty Petals DSP stack and the new Greetings Thinlits.

 
 

I hope you like them.
