June 2018 Class – Climbing Orchid

A big THANKYOU to all who came to my classes last week.

We made four cards using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and  Orchid Builder matching Framelits. This beautiful set has carried over from the last catalogue. I bought it a long time ago but only got the chance to play with it recently.

The first card I cased from “Short Cake Scraps”. We used the double layered stamp to create this lovely card. The card base was made using Fresh Fig card stock and card front was on Very Vanilla. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

The second card was inspired by a card in the new  2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (pg. 24). I used blushing bride for the card front and stamped the orchid in Melon Mambo ink. The Ruffled 3D dynamic embossing folder created a beautiful background.

The third card is my design. I think the Old Olive matches so well with the new in-colour Grapefruit Grove. Everyone had their own choice of greetings. ‘Thinking of you’ covers a lot of occasions.

The fourth card was inspired by a card on pg 21 of the 2017-2018 catalogue. We distressed the edges of the card front for a little extra texture. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Everyone loved the cards they created and are looking forward to the next class. If you would like to join us, please see the class schedule. There won’t be a July class as I will be away but we’ll be back on deck in August.

Heartfelt Thanks

I have had a difficult month and a half. I had to say goodbye to my precious 19+ year old Puss and then had shoulder surgery.

I would just like to acknowledge and thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts, prayers, visits, help, gifts and beautiful cards that I received. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness.

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

April 2016 Card Class

This is the set of cards that we made at our last class. Everyone had a nice time and loved the cards that they created.

This beautiful card was inspired by Stamp & Create by Sabrina from Pinterest. We used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and cut out all the pieces twice, then layered them to achieve this ‘paper tole’ effect. I love the simplicity and elegance of white on white.
