Time seems to be flying by of late but I have been busy creating & will be sharing again as of this week. Of course, the free tutorials will still be available with the cards.
Today’s card is one I did playing with one of the techniques from the current Technique Treats – Split Negative & Spotlighting, so I thought I would see what I could come up using my extra piece left over from the Split Negative Technique, as you always end up with an extra piece.
As I couldn’t find “Teeny Tiny Sentiments” at the time of creating my card, I printed “Bon Voyage” direct onto Very Vanilla Card in Early Espresso Ink & punched it out with one of my new favourite toys – the Classic Label Punch.
If you haven’t purchased any of the Technique Treats, be sure to pop over to the Technique Treats Page to find out what it is all about & to purchase your favourite Treat. We have had great feedback which is always good to hear.
I’m very late with our Treats today – heaps of trouble with my internet but have managed to fix it. Hope your all survived the weather last night & today. I think we were on the edge of it although it was fairly heavy. I think the Bay got most of it. We even ended up down the beach again this morning much to the delight of Belle.
My winner for our Free Tutorial of their choice is Kathy. Congratulations Kathy & thank you for your lovely comment. I will be in touch to see which Tutorial you would like.
Our Techniques this month concentrates on Split Negative (which is traditionally done in black & white) but we have stepped out of the box this month with our colours. The 2nd technique is Spotlighting. Again, a great one to play around & create with. This month our cards have used the “Traveler” Stamp Set.
As with all Techniques, June will certainly take you out of your comfort zone. I know they did with me, as they are a little different to what I normally do.

Our card today is the 2nd one we did in our class last month. Again, it is a very CAS – Clean & Simple Card, but one I am happy with.
I stamped the Globe Image onto a scrap of Very vanilla CS in Memento Black prior to punching out with Extra-Large Oval Punch. I also punched a piece of Basic Black CS with the same Punch & adhered to the stamped piece but just showing a small amount of Black down 1 side.
A piece of Crumb Cake DSP from the Neutrals Stack was layered onto a piece of Basic Black CS before a strip of Basic Black CS was adhered across the middle. The punched Ovals were adhered to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Crazy About You” onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS, cut down to size, cut into a Banner Shape one end & adhered to the strip of Basic Black, tucking the end under the punched Ovals.
This piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.
To finish the card, I adhered 3 Basic Back Candy Dots to the bottom right corner.
In one of my classes last month we created a couple of cards for Dad or for the male in your family. They were very simple cards, but they were meant to be this way. I think with male cards we tend to try & overthink them. It is best we keep them CAS – Clean & Simple.
I stamped the engine image from “Traveler” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS using Memento Black Ink. The image from “Gorgeous Grunge” was stamped either side of the engine in Crumb Cake Ink.
“Happy Father’s Day” is from “Crazy About You” Stamp Set & is stamped direct onto the same card in Memento Black Ink.
I adhered a piece of Basic Black from the Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the card before layering onto a piece of Basic Black CS & then to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.
3 Basic Black Candy Dots were adhered to the bottom left hand corner of the card.
It was my uncle’s 70th birthday last Saturday & decided to try & create a special card for him.
We had a bit of a special family gathering to celebrate his special day! Along with him turning 70, it was also my cousin’s 58th & my aunt & uncle’s 60th Wedding Anniversary. Lots of chat, laughter & old photos – some of which I had never seen, especially from my family & growing up!
I decided to use a set that I love but hasn’t seen much ink – “Traveler” Luckily this set will be staying in the new catalogue, so it gives me more time to play with it.
