Wow what a project this month!

Hi,
Well my classes said they wanted a challenge to make something different, so who was I to refuse! lol Wow what a project this month!

The three classes I ran this month made the same card-I did have another project in hand ‘in case’ they managed to finish this one, but I defeated them! lol

I designed an ‘Angled Crossover Card’, which was in itself a new Folding technique they hadn’t done before, plus stamping all over the base card to look like Designer speciality paper. Then covered the card in lovely butterflies to give it a real ‘WOW’ Factor!

First of all I cut and scored the two pieces of whisper white cs so they slotted together to make the ‘Angled Crossover Base’. Then I used the Garden in Bloom Stamp set which is a 2-step stamp set. First of all I stamped all the outlines of the flowers, stems, leaves and bees using the outline stamps and Black Stazon Ink. Then filled them in with different coloured Inks using the Fill-in stamps from the same stamp set, really good value this stamp set! Once all sides of the base card were stamped all over, I then sponged all over all sides with Pool Party and a sponge dauber. This was very subtle but really enhanced the flowers etc. Once completed, slot the two pieces together to make the cross-over angled card.

To finish off I stamped large and small butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Daffodil Delight Inks. I punched them out using the matching Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. These then had their wings curled using a bone folder, stuck one on top of another to make 4x of each size/colour butterfly and stuck onto the card using Glue dots.

I stamped and fussy cut two Dragonflies from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp set and Wild Wasabi Ink. These were stuck one on top of the other with 2-way glue pen, the wings curled and stuck to card with glue dots. Finally, I stamped Best wishes from Petite Pairs stamp set, punched out with Washi Label Punch and stuck to front of card with a Dimensional and stuck another piece of whisper white cs on back of card to write on.

I hope you agree with me and my classes that it really is a magnificant card, well worth the time and effort to make. Has to be a very special person that receives this card! lol

Best get off lots more to design and prepare for my next Christmas Themed Workshop, oh and my Coffee n Card next week!
Thanks for dropping by!

Coffee n Card Afternoon

Had a lovely afternoon last Thursday at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve when I held my first Coffee n Card session.

A couple of lovely ladies sat and chatted, enjoyed a drink and made a lovely card.  One of them kindly took some pictures for me and here’s me holding up the card we made.  The other lady didn’t fancy her picture being taken, so here’s her ‘hands’ lol punching out a butterfly!

As the afternoon continued, I spoke to other customers at the No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve, as they asked what we were doing. They were very interested and so I look forward to seeing them next time.

My next Coffee n Card Afternoon is Thursday 23rd July 2-3pm, so put the date and time in your diary and pop along. There will be a choice of two projects, either a lovely card using a lovely Stamp Set;  Sprinkles of Life, or a Curvy Keepsake box made into a lovely ‘critter’. Pop back here next week when I will be revealing the two projects for you to choose from! For now here’s a few projects I have made in the past with both the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Curvy Keepsake Thinlits Dies just to ‘wet’ your appetite.
