Colouring Class

Hand-Delivered-1---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards we created in our colouring class in June.  Yes, I am a little behind in sharing with you but hopefully we can catch up.

We played with the Stampin’ Blends of Pumpkin Pie & Hand-Delivered-1---InsidePink Pirouette (retired) but one which everyone has.   We used the gorgeous Host Set Stamp Set –  Hand Delivered which has a lot of potential.  In our class we got to colour our balloons 2 different ways.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes a list of supplies & measurements (metric & imperial).

Hang in There

I’ve had a bit of a play with one of the 2016 SAB sets – “Honeycomb Happiness“.  This is 002ewm-blogsuch a cute little set with lots of possibilities.

I did start to case a card from the current Catalogue, but it sort of went off on its own, although I am happy with it.

I wanted my chick to look like it was poking it’s head out from behind a hole in the wall which is why I embossed the card with the Brick EF & added a circle around the chick.

I’ve used my Blender Pens to colour the Chick & Balloon Images.  I also applied Clear Wink of Stella, although you can’t see it in the photo.  It is very hard to capture a good photo of the lovely soft shimmer & sparkle it adds to your cards.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Card in a Box

A couple of weeks ago I had a request to create a card for someone who was in hospital.  Janet especially asked for the type I012wm-blog had given her for her birthday.  Mind you, I had to put my thinking cap on as to what one she was talking about.

After talking for a few minutes, I was told the lady loved singing, was a member of a local Musical Group, had written about 60 songs & could paly a couple of instruments.  After hearing how talented this lady was, it could only be one type of card.  One with lots of music notes, etc  & somehow include flowers.

Not only had it to be a Card in a Box, but big enough for about 20 people to sign, so I sat myself down & played around until I was happy with a template that fitted into an A4 Envelope (Aus).  There are heaps of tutorials on how to create these cards, but none the size I wanted.

For the back, I adhered a Treble Clef to a piece of Whisper White Card – enough room for everyone to sign or write a small message.

For the notes, I printed them direct onto Whisper White Card & fussy cut them 001a-wm-bloguntil I thought I had enough.  My piano keys were created by drawing lines with the Basic Black Marker, punched so many pieces of Basic Black Card using the Word Window Punch, cut off the tops & adhered to the Whisper White Card.  Not being  musical person, I had to actually check out the layout of a piano prior to adhering my keys (I did learn the piano when a kid, would you believe).

After adhering all my notes & flowers I decided it looked a little funny so I took the flowers down & cut some grass from Old Olive Card using the Fringe Scissors.  I then repositioned the flowers along the top of the piano & a couple throughout.  Much better!  The flowers 011wm-blogwere cut from Real Red & Daffodil Delight Card by running through the Big Shot using the Blossom Party Originals Die (Retired).

On the back of the card I typed “Wishing you a Speedy Recovery” & left it blank so that there would be more room for messages & signing.

I’m really happy with the card, especially the pops of Red & yellow.  Janet said the Music Group couldn’t believe it when they saw it – they loved it!  I only hope the lady that received it loved it too.

Would love to know what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Today’s card is one we will be creating in my Volunteer Class this afternoon. 
 
As with most of Friday’s card, it has been CASEd (Copied & Shared Everything) from Pinterest.  L.O.V.E this site!  Thanks Vicki for your inspiration!
 
It does use one of my favourite retired stamp sets, but that is the beauty about my Volunteer Class – I get to play with some of my retired products again.  The card can easily be recreated with current products.

Technique Classes…

Our classes for the new year are now back up & running.  It was great to catch up with everyone, have our normal “Show & Tell” & hear how everyone did at Christmas & New Year. 
 
To showcase some of the gorgeous SAB products you can earn this year, our 1st card was created using the DSP – Sweet Sorbet.  To earn FREE products during SAB, all you have to do is append over $90.00 excluding P&H.  SAB begins Tuesday, 28 January, but as a Demonstrator I get to pre-order.
 
To start the new year, we did a little bit of “Heat Embossing“.  I like to go over techniques every now & then so that we can familiarise ourselves with them and it helps with the new crafters who have joined our group.

I found out that one of my ladies & friend who comes to our Technique Class spent some of the school holidays in hospital.  I created this one especially for her. 

In fact I’ve add the “Swallowtail” Stamp sitting on the shelf for some time, but just couldn’t get an idea in my head to use it.  I have seen some lovely work using this stamp, but I don’t usually use a stamp until an idea pops into my head. 

Determined to use the stamp & not really knowing what I was going to do, I grabbed the stamp, a couple of colours & played.  I’m happy with the result.  It is a very simple, easy card, but effective at the same time.

Thanks Bronwen for getting me to use this lovely stamp & hope you are feeling much, much better.

It was my turn to set the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations this week.  I’ve been very easy in that there is no 2nd part to the challenge, only the sketch. 

I wanted to do a simple little card as I seemed to have gone to all white cards of late.  Funny how we go through stages, but to be honest this is my style & the one I love creating.  I also need to stock up on my “Get Well” Cards as I sold a lot of them at the Handmade Expo last month.

I’ve also used one of my new stamp sets I purchased in the last month – Summer Silhouettes.  It has taken me a long time to obtain this set AND I love it.  The set makes for simple easy 5 minute cards while creating something with a bit of a “WOW”.

Inside Card…

What a great challenge we have over at Sunny Challenges & Creations for you this fortnight.  Once again Gwen has been very easy on us whereby she has given us no sketch, but that we are to create a card, scrapbook page or 3-D item with the theme of “Get Well“. 

This is the type of card that we usually leave to the last moment to create, but one that we should all probably have in our box of goodies for that special person who may not be feeling on top of the world & knowing that you were thinking of them can pick them up no end.

After creating 2 cards, yep you read right – TWO – I went to post the challenge, only to discover that I had the wrong sentiment, so back to the drawing board for me.  I then completely went in another direction & created one for the male, which we don’t see too often, but can be a difficult one to create.

Would you believe I don’t own a “Get Well” stamp.  I just about pulled my shelves apart looking for one.  There is nothing worse than looking for something you think you have.  Anyhow, not to be outbeaten, I then grabbed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, typed the sentiment in Early Expresso Ink & printed out.  So now you know what will be in my next order along with any other sentiment that I think I may need in the future…….

In fact, my card all started from a small piece of Always Artichoke Cardstock & went from there.  For the layout, I took the layout from Mary-Jo’s current challenge.

I’ve just rememered that it fits my online group’s challenge over at Latenight Stampers as well.  How good is that? Not starting out with much at all & I’ve completed 3 challenges with the same card…..

We would love for you to play along with our challenge this week.  To get you started, why not pop on over to Sunny Challenges & Creations, see what Gwen, Kris & our Guest Designers have created.  Create your card, etc, post to an online group or forum, then link back to Mr Linky.

Remember if we have over 10 entries, then we can give out 2 Ray of Sunshines…….
