August Class Projects

Hi,

I held my penultimate classes this weekend and they were great fun if not emotional.

As from October I will no longer be running my monthly classes at Sue’s Crafting Place, Bishops Cleeve but will be doing online videos/tutorials so I can reach a wider audience.  My hubby and I are also starting a new adventure together with our family so this seems the best time to make changes to my business.  I hope you will continue to support me and may be those of you who couldn’t come to my monthly classes will now be able to participate!

Here are the projects we made this month, I hope you like them and as ever if you want to order the products click on the various products which will take you to my online shop.  Remember spend £30+ with me and allow me to contact you and you will get unlimited access to the videos for these projects and the PDF tutorial will be emailed to you once the order has gone through.  Don’t forget to use the August Hostess Code in order to receive a FREE gift just from me!

My inspiration this month came from Dawn Griffith, a truly inspirational lady and fellow Demonstrator. Click on the two links below to see her projects.

June’s Class using Brand New Stamp Set!

Hi everyone,

June’s Class is upon us, a bit delayed due to me being on holiday!

As many of you will know we have a Brand New Annual Catalogue that came out on 1 June – whilst I was on holiday! lol So I’m all behind, oops sorry!

This months class is using two brand new stamp sets from this new Catalogue and as soon as I saw the Bright Wishes Stamp Set with the gorgeous and very detailed Wishing Well, I knew I had to have it!  I love watercolouring, and have done a few classes using watercolour pencils and blender pen and aquapainter.  However we never really had many detailed stamps to show off using the watercolouring techniques.  Now, we have so many I am going to be spending lots of money buying them all and teaching my class members how to get the most out of them – even those who aren’t keen on colouring hehe.

This month’s class is a prime example! My two projects are two very different cards and two different colouring techniques.  The first one is a Card with a box inside. When you open the card, it reveals the Wishing Well beautifully coloured in with Watercolour pencils and blended using a Blender Pen.  Gorgeous and brilliant because it folds flat so fit a normal size envelope and cheap to post! lol

This card would make a lovely Father’s Day or Birthday Card, or even if you added a bit more glitz a gorgeous female card!

The second card (thanks to Shelly Godby) is again using the Bright Wishes Stamp Set as well as Happy Birthday Gorgeous! Stamp set.  This card is a Monochrome Card and is using one of the Brand New In-Colors, Lemon Lime Twist! It is so vibrant, so bright, it’s amazing! I must admit when I first saw it, I wasn’t sure, but like most things once you get your hands on it, oh my goodness, you are soooo glad you did!!!

As you can see I’ve made this card as a birthday card, but again it would make a lovely Father’s Day card, or if you changed the colours a female card.

I am sure you will want to get your hands on these new products, so why not go to my online shop or contact me to get your hands on a hard copy of the Brand New Catalogue sent to you.

If you fancy making these two cards, place an order (minimum £30) via my online shop and once the order has gone through and you’ve allowed me to contact you, I will email you the tutorial for both cards.

Below are the products I have used to make these two cards.  Just click on each photo to place the order.  Remember to use the June Hostess Code (if your order is over £150 DO NOT USE IT) and I will send you a gift just from me to thank you for your order (you must give me permission to contact you, otherwise I won’t get your details).

 

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

May Hostess Code and this months class

Hi,

Yes I know I’m running a little late with issuing the May Hostess Code! lol  What can I say, but I’ve been so busy playing with some of the amazing pre-order us lucky Demonstrators get to order before the new Catalogue is released in June!  You are going to be amazed at how fantastic this new Annual Catalogue is! So many beautiful new stamp sets, all NEW Designer Series Papers which are to die for! On top of that there’s the new ribbons, new embellishments – oh and of course this year we have 5 yes 5 brand new In-Colors!  You have got to see them! I even bought a new dress which has matching flower colours to the new Lemon/lime Twist! lol

So why not place an order with me today from the retiring Catalogues to ensure you get a copy of the Brand New Catalogue when it’s released on 1 June! I will personally post one to you along with a bespoke card showcasing some of the gorgeous DSP and one of the New In-colors, along with a very useful bookmark again showing all the new In-colors, so you can mark your favourite page of stamps etc!  Remember to use the New Hostess Code (find it on my right side bar) and you will also receive a FREE gift from me (may even be some of the new Ribbon or embellishments!).

This months class is a small affair as alot of people are away or busy, so I have decided to make a more technical card – A Pivot Twist Card!  I made one of these months ago before they became the latest trend, but because it can take longer than some of my cards to make in a class, I have not been able to teach this one.

However as I say I only have one class of four coming on Saturday, so I thought now is a great opportunity to showcase the card!  Thanks goes to both  Tuppence coloured (here’s a link to her blog Tuppence Coloured) for her inspiration as well as Frances Martin (here’s a link to her Frances Martin) for help with making the pivot mechanism easier to teach).  I have written a tutorial and made a gorgeous card which I am looking forward to teaching tomorrow.

If you would like to get your hands on the tutorial so you can make this on-trend and amazing Pivot twist Card, then place an order (£20+) with me via my online shop using the new Hostess Code (M4S6FNBU).  As soon as I have received confirmation of your order, I will email you your Tutorial.  If you would like a Copy of the Brand New Catalogue, once you have placed your order, email me with your full details, including your postal address and I will post one out to you as soon as they are available.

I am also sorting out all the gorgeous new Ribbon and Dsp ready for you to get your hands on a Share of them all.  So if you fancy having a share of them, please email me with your details so I can let you know when they are ready to purchase.  Check back here in the next couple of weeks for more details.

Below are the products I used to make this gorgeous Pivot/twist Card.

High Tide Cards using Brayering and Sponging Techniques

Hi,

What happens when you put the High Tide Stamp Set together with the Brayering and Sponging Techniques?  Well, you get these amazing results! Two beautiful cards that we will be making in my Classes in April! Aren’t they just amazing! Thanks to Serenestamper for her inspiration for the sunset card. Here’s the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdO0djZ7VUo.  The second card I created myself and had a lightbulb moment! lol I had seen a few cards using either the Wink of Stella Pen https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141897 to create glisten on the sea or whisper white craft ink https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=101731 to create waves.  However I wanted more texture and suddenly thought, ‘Clear Embossing Powder’! https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=109130 Well as you can see it made a fantastic card with lots of texture on the sea! I love it!

Here are the two projects, the first one was inspired by Serenestamper and the second one was my creation!

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!
