Card Class Thursday 7th November

Yay, its card class time again! After taking some time off to have my baby girl I am now happy to say that card classes are back on! We'll be kicking off with some Christmas cards next Thursday!

We will be making 3 cards in total, class will start at 7pm and will cost £7.00 to cover all the supplies.

One of the cards we will make is this little gem!

Please let me know if you plan to come so i can reserve a place for you. I can take a maximum of 8 people so please let me know quick!


Christmas Continued

As promised here are a few more cards i made for Christmas:

This card is made again using the 'Lovely as a tree' stampset and embossing it onto whisper white card stock.

I then stamped 'En Francais' as the background and used a sponge dauber to add a bit of colour.

After that I used a tissue and wiped off any excess ink collected over the embossed area to leave the tree white.

This Card was a simple design, great for using up scraps of card stock and paper. 

THis next card is a great card to make if you dont have any DSP to match card stock or you dont want to spend too much money on too many supplies.

I used 1 stamp set 'Festive Furry" and 2 colours of ink for the snow flakes and created my own background. 
The middle boarder was just a scrap piece of plain card stock that matched the snow flake ink, and the top part was just from trimming down the back ground i created.

Add some bling and a sentiment and its finished!

Christmas is coming!

As Christmas is just around the corner i thought i would get a head start and try out some card samples.

This first card is a fun play copying the design from within the winter catalogue found on page 9. It looks a little wrinkled as i sadly spilt my coffee on it :( Its also still missing the sentiment but i just couldn't make up my mind of what i wanted on it.

The Stamp is from the 'Lovely as a tree' set in the main catalogue. Its one of the most versatile stamps sets and definitely in my top 5 favourites

This next card is one of my new favourites. I found out after i made it i could have just easily googled some measurements, but never mind. This card took me a good hour to make and several bits of scrap paper to get it looking exactly as i liked it.

I used 'Snowflake Soiree' From last years catalogue which is excitingly on sale in the %25 off sale! Click here to see it, its on page 7.

I also used one of my other favourite stamp sets 'En Francais' as the background.

Sadly I hadnt yet bought my new framelets 'Festive Flurry' (page 30 of the Winter catalogue) so i had to make do with last years big shot die for the snow flakes

Stay tuned in the next day or 2 for some more cards!
