Brayering February monthly Class

February monthly class is nearly here and have I got some gorgeous projects we are going to make in them.

Both the Friday and Saturday Monthly Classes are already fully subscribed, but there is no reason why you couldn’t join in remotely! Yes, remotely, I have written the tutorials for the two projects and I have made videos showing the technique of sponge brayering as well as how to make one of the cards!

WOW I can here you say, how can I get my hands on these tutorials and videos?  Well, all you have to do is place an order of £30+, once the purchase has gone through, and I have been notified, I will email you both the tutorials and links to the two videos.  Of course you will need to let me contact you, so when placing your order, please tick the box that allows me to do this.  Better still, once you’ve put your order through email me direct with your contact details?  If you live locally to me (Gloucestershire), why not book a 1-2-1 to make the projects at my Crafting Place, (details of 1-2-1 classes on my Classes page), class is FREE when you order £30+ of products through my online shop.

Thank You Card

Hi,

I thought I would show you my latest ‘Thank You’ Card I made and gave to my customers that ordered from me this month.

star of light embossed star of light inside

Isn’t it gorgeous! I used the amazing Star of Light Bundle  and used Copper Embossing Powder  for the swirly stars behind the large stars.  The Large star, which also has a smaller star on top of it (sorry picture not too good) was cut out using the new Copper Foil Sheets!  Behind the Embossed Whisper White, I used the new Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper. It goes so well with the Copper Foil Sheets don’t you think?  Of course the Glimmer paper is just the right product for Halloween too!  Bet you’re wondering where the tiny heart cut outs are from? Well, when you cut out the intricate stars, these hearts are left behind.  So instead of throwing them away, I’ve used some on this card, and the rest I will put into a gorgeous shaker card!

The Inside of the card is simple but so effective, again using stamps from the Star of Light Stamp Set and Pumpkin Pie Ink.

All of the new products are in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue, which, if you do not have yet in your hands, you can contact me and I will send one out to you straightaway.  Of course if you can’t wait to get your hands on it, you can click on the Autumn/Winter Catalogue Link above, and have a look at all the gorgeous new products you can get hold of today!

Place an order for these products I’ve used today and I will send you (once your order has gone through) a FREE Tutorial on how to make not just this card, but the shaker card I made using the left over cut outs!  You must leave your contact details when placing your order, giving me permission to contact you otherwise I won’t be able to send you these Tutorials.  Of course you will also get an exclusive ‘Thank you’ Card made by me, for placing the order with me too!

Below is a table of all the products I used to make this card.

Enjoy and place that order today, to get the two FREE Tutorials and a lovely Thank you card! Remember to allow me to contact you when placing your order!

It’s My Party Suite

Hi,

I hope you enjoyed my cards I showed in our recent Pinkies Blog hop, using ‘It’s My Party’ Suite from Stampin’Up!  This suite is amazing and I LOVE IT! The stamp set has so many lovely stamps including lovely sentiments, everything you need to make gorgeous cards, whether for younger children or adults. There is also gorgeous Designer Speciality Paper (DSP) which is 12″ x 12″ so plenty to make lots of cards, boxes and gift wrapping.  Then there is the cute little Party Punch Pack which when you see them you will fall in love with them.  The great thing about them is that the stamped image is slightly bigger than the punch so when you punch them out there is no white area surrounding it – so much more realistic.

Here’s the first card I did in my blog hop participation, a Slider Card.

slider card pulled up slider card inside slider front

I taught this in two of my classes this weekend and everyone thought it was amazing. They said that even though it took concentration to make lol they really enjoyed it and would be making more.  This will be easier for them as I have made a video and a written tutorial for them lol.  You too can have access to the video and a copy of the written tutorial by placing a £45+ order with me by clicking on the products from the listing below. As soon as it goes through I will email you the video link and tutorial. Remember don’t tick ‘NO contact’ when placing your order, as I won’t be able to access your details so won’t be able to send the tutorial or video link to you.  Don’t forgot also for every £45 you spend between 5 January and 31 March which is Saleabration time, you can choose a FREE Product from the Saleabration (SAB) Catalogue. There’s stamp set, gorgeous DSP, embossed vellum and Project Life Cards.

Here are the products I used to make this gorgeous slider card.

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

 

We didn’t have time to make the other card, so we will make that one in next months class. Here it is though along with the products I used to make it. Again click on the products below to order from my online shop and if the order is £45+ you not only get to choose a FREE SAB product, but I will email you (once the order has gone through) a link to the video and a written tutorial.

Finally, my last one to show you used Party Wishes Stamp Set along with the Party Punch Pack and it’s a Side Stepped Card
