Our 2nd card last Sunday was still playing with the new “Hearth & Home” Thinlits, but used in a different way. So many ideas, so little time. The ladies loved this card & thought it very different to the first one we created.
We played with our Heat & Stick Powder, along with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter by using it on our sky to create little, tiny sparkling stars. Not sure if you are able to see the shine, but when the card moves certain ways, it lights up. We also randomly scattered small Rhinestones around the card, just to give it a little more shine.
This class is going to be repeated in November, so be sure to check out the Classes/Workshops for dates & times.
In our Technique Class last Sunday we played with the fantastic Hearth & Home Thinlits These are sold as a bundle which include the Stamp Set – Happy Scenes. The stamps are small enough to go behind the window. We used the fantastic all occasions “Lovely as a Tree“.
I will admit when I first saw these Thinlits Dies I saw an old bush gate……. and my mind started thinking…… I even managed to make it a little rustic & worn – just like the gate out home. So of course, to go with the gate, I had to create a real bush Christmas Card.
I still think I went a little overboard on the stars but out home the stars are really that bright. After I had completed the card, I then realised that I should have created the Milky Way! Mind you, I went a little green with the green too as it is very dry out west & they are still in one of the worse droughts since the 60’s, so I’ve been told. There isn’t even any dust left on the land for the wind to pick up.
Again, this class is going to be repeated in November. Be sure to check back at a later for the dates.
We played with the Festive Flower Builder Punch last Sunday in our Technique Class & will admit we had lots of fun creating our flowers. I can see myself using this punch for all sorts of occasions – not just Christmas.
We also teamed Real Red with Pool Party which I would never had done, but after seeing the colours for the DSP – Home for Christmas which is in the new Holiday Catalogue. I am loving the colours & are a bit of a WOW!
This class will be repeated this month, so be sure to check out the dates & times over on my Classes/Workshops Page. If a time doesn’t suit, please contact me to arrange another day & time.
Today’s card is our 2nd card we created last Sunday. I am loving this card & thankfully the ladies did too. They especially loved how you can use your ornaments to create an entirely different card.
Again we used the Delicate Ornament & Embellished Ornaments Bundle. While creating this card, I suddenly realised that there was a small flower in the middle of one of the Ornaments – thank you Stampin’ Up!. We stamped the image a couple of times in Real Red for the flowers & again in Old Olive for the leaves before fussy cutting the images & layering on top of each other. I love to use my stamps different ways & love to show the ladies the same.
We actually coloured the Rhinestones with a Yellow Permanent Marker.
We played with the Delicate Ornament Dies & Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set Bundle last Sunday in our Technique Class. The ladies absolutely loved the cards. I am in 2 minds about these cards that I am showing you today. As I created a silver & gold card – couldn’t decide which I liked better, I let them choose the colour they preferred.
The cards were basically cased from the HolidayCatalogue, Page 14 but with my own touches added to them. In fact, most of our products used to create our cards are from the Catalogue.
Be sure to pop back in a couple of days & I’ll show you our 2nd card from the same class.
