Last class till I get back

Our last class before I headed overseas was all about going over techniques that we had done over the year. It also showed how you can make one design work quite differently just by changing the background.

The is  the Emboss resist background. Stamp and emboss first, then sponge over the embossing. We used Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron and Old Olive


This background is created by Smooshing.  We popped 3 colours on to an acrylic block and then spritzed with water.  Then we smooshed the card over the block. I love this technique, never have two cards the same.


This technique was created using our blends. Draw lines across the card diagonally one way and then the other to form a checkered look. Then with the pen tip end draw a contrasting coloured line across the card. So simple.

Now I am planning classes for when I get home. I have a few in my head and looking forward to getting my hands on my supplies when I get home.

All dressed up

I have been going a little crazy scoring and folding and making cute little dresses. This has all come about because of my dear friend Liz Collett who is so very good at Origami. She is always coming up with fantastic creations. She showed me these little dresses and I have not been able to stop creating them every time I have some spare time.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with them all. Some of them I have added as gift tags, What else can I do with them. Come on now give me some suggestions and I'll reward you with a little dress.

A selection of cards

We have had some lovely classes lately, although we missed some of our dear friends that haven't been able to make it for a while. Hopefully they will be back with us soon. These are some of the cards we have been making over the last few weeks.

Some lovely colours

The colours on our cards are quite yummy. I love the new Gorgeous Grape, I think it could be a new favourite. These were our class cards.


The striped umbrella has been stamped with the new Poppy Parade. I quite like this red, although when you put it against Real Red it shows such a different hue. The Pool Party background came from the new Love What You Do stamp set.


Early Espresso was stamped on Early Espresso card. I love stamping same on same. The vellum was embossed in Early Espresso as well. We used the blends to colour the flower and we also coloured the Rhinestones to match using the blends.


The Tree Rings make a great background and works well with the Calypso Coral flowers and ribbon. The stamp set we used here was the new Love What You Do stamp set.

The cards we made - love em!

Another week gone by in a snap, I don't know about you but this year seems to be flying by. It won't be long before everyone is planning Christmas in July.

This weeks cards we used left overs from a couple of classes back, I love it when you can make more than one card out of an embellishment.

This one the "friend" has been cut out of the frame. Such a simple card don't you think? The images are from the retired Lovely Inside and Out stamp set


This Wild Wasabi card is using the left over snippet of last weeks embellishment. The background is also using the retired Lovely Inside and Out stamp set.


Everyone loved this card, it was so soft and delicate. It was suggested that it would make a lovely baby card.


The Soft Sky piece above  was the left over from our Daisy card a few classes back.

The kit, makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs, the folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)

 Kit includes:
* 16 printed card bases and 16 printed envelopes
* 8 sheets of laser-cut labels
* 13 calligraphy practice sheets
* 50 adhesive-backed sequins.



If you want to continue on the Calligraphy road then I would highly recommend purchasing the Calligraphy Essentials Clear-Mount Stamp Set.
