To create my panel, I dragged Crumb Cake & Sahara Sand down a piece of Whisper White stamping the silhouette flower direct over the inks. I love the look of the panel as it come up looking a little like wood, don’t you think?

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.
Today’s post is the 2nd card we did in our Technique Class last Sunday. We had a play with the Aqua Painter, Re-Inkers & the Shimmery Card.
It is taken from one I saw on Pinterest a little while ago. I did a couple of minor changes including the colours. This is my version of the “Gatefold Latch Card“. I had never created one of these cards previously, but somehow I think I will be doing more of them.
The ladies loved both cards we created which always gives me a great feeling. It is great to hear that they love their cards as sometimes you try & create them, never knowing if they are going to over well or not.
Of course, as with all card classes, especially Technique Class, no 2 cards ever end up the same. I love how this happens. We all start our with the same kit, but end up with entirely different results.
This card will be the 2nd card repeated for one of the Technique classes next month, so be sure to check back next week to see the dates this class will be held in July, by clicking onto the “Classes” Page.

…was one of the stamp sets we used on our Cracked GlassTechnique Class a couple of weeks ago. This technique gave such a lovely aged effect to the whole stamp set & card that we did a little bit of sponging as well. I used the current challenge (at the time) from Sunny Challenges & Creations to create our card.
The classes are held every 2nd Sunday afternoon from 1.00pm to whenever we happen to finish.
I am really enjoying the classes as it is getting me out of my comfort zone & also using different stamps, along with colours & styles. I think it is important when doing classes that you cater for everyone’s likes, not just your own.
One of our techniques last sunday arvo was the “Reverse Spotlighting“. what a fun, fun technique & we all enjoyed creating this card. Not only was the technique used on the card, but we created an “Easel Card” as well.
Bottom of Easel…
Aren’t the colours gorgeous on this card. This is the first time, this stamp set has been inked, but think it will be seeing a lot more ink somehow, as it stamps such beautiful images.
I love the way this card turned out. It is one of the cards we created in our Technique Class on Sunday – Bleaching…. What a fun technique! I know I will be doing more of this one….
Some people find it hard to create a male’s card, so we will be mixing our cards so that we cater for males, females, kids, etc as well as ocassions. I find what works the best for male cards is to stick to basic layouts – can’t go wrong!
