January 2019 Card Class Animal Expedition

Welcome back to my card classes for 2019!

This month we made four cute cards using the super cute Animal Expeditions Suite. I used the happy birthday greeting form the new Amazing Life stamp set, I thought this worked really well with the images.

These cards are suitable for girls and boys of any age.

Rhino card

We stamped the rhino and coloured the bird using Stampin’ Blends, then cut it out with the matching Thinlits  ‘Animal Friends‘ die.

The cobbled path was run through the big shot using the embossing plates! I love these as the double the use of my dies! I can now cut or emboss.

Products used to make this card:

Kangaroo Card

I was inspired by a card in the Stampin’ Up catalogue. It’s lovely to have one of our Australian native animals to play with too 😀

The base of this card is on berry burst card stock and the kangaroo is cut out of the cute Designer Series Paper. The leafy cut out is using the dies in the bundle. The wooden elements ad a nice finishing touch.

Giraffe card

I love how the giraffe is poking out of the circle. This was also cut out of the DSP. The frog on the branch was stamped and cut out with the matching framelits and… there’s a die for the old olive branch too!

Don’t you just love all of the coordination that Stampin’ Up! provides for us to make projects so much easier 😀

Products used to make this card:

 DSP Card

This one I totally cased from the annual catalogue. I just used a heart instead of the button and changed the greeting and the DSP pattern.

It features a full card front of the really cute DSP!

I love the leaf ribbon and the wooden elements, do you? They add a different element to the card.

Handy Hint: The easiest way to attach the leaf ribbon is using glue dots.

February Class 2018 – Truly Tailored bundle

This week we made four masculine cards using the Truly Tailored bundle. Thanks to everyone who came, we had a fun class.

This is a great masculine set and the punch is very versatile – see the card with the bow. The shape is cut in half then reversed and joined in the middle then covered with ribbon. The Tailored Tag Punch can be used for many other occasions too.

We used several techniques including heat embossing, textured embossing, inking stamps using markers and creating a design using punched out shapes of Designer Series Paper.
