Card Making Class 19th November 2017

Card Making

So today I held my craft class as Asda community room, Mount Pleasant, Hull and we made 2 Cards, the first a pretty birthday, thank you or just because card.

To make this card you will need

 

  1. Using the whisper white, stamp one of the full flower and 2 of the upright flowers in flirty flamingo ink.
  2. 2 step stamp the leaves 3 times in emerald envy ink, stamping off for the first stamp and full colour on the patterned stamp
  3. Die cut these out.
  4. To the right hand side of centre die cut the large patter from the basic black card stock
  5. Using the matting layer of flirty flamingo die cut the flowers with the insert and layer it on the stamped images. Being carful only to cut the flirty flamingo card where it won’t show through.
  6. Wrap the ribbon around the bottom of the basic black card and adhere it to the back.
  7. Stamp your chosen sentiment in Versamark and heat embossing power to help it show up on the black background.
  8. Matt and layer the basic black on to the flirty flamingo card and layer that on the White card base.
  9. Arrange your flowers and leaves where you would like them and add rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.

 

The second card that we made today was a christmas Card using the Thoughtful Branches, which is no longer available from Stampin’Up, but gives a lovely snowy scene by stamping 3 times without re-inking to create the dimension of the forrest.

I am planning my next class in January so please message me or email me to book your place.

Autumn Winter Catalogue

SO THE AUTUMN WINTER STAMPINUP CATALOGUE WAS LAUNCHED ON THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER

THERE IS LOTS OF CHRISTMASY STAMPS AND ACCESSORIES IN THERE AS WELL AS SPOOKY BITS FOR HALLOWEEN, SUCH AS A CAT PUNCH. I HAVE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE USING THIS PUNCH FOR A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CARD.

HOWEVER,  I LOVE CHRISTMAS AND EXCITED TO HAVE MADE A START ON MY CHRISTMAS CARDS, MY FAVOURITE OF ALL THE NEW BITS IS THE  CHRISTMAS QUILTING BUNDLE


I AM NOT A QUILTER, BUT JUST LOVE THE PATTERN AND THAT I CAN USE IT FOR CHRISTMAS CARDS IN TRADITIONAL COLOURS OR MIX IT UP FOR EVERYDAY CARDS. THE PAPER STACK AVAILABLE MATCHES PERFECTLY TOO MATCHING PAPER STACK

Wedding Favours

StampinUp is all about sharing ideas. Heidi from flutterbyheidi is certainly one of the people I watch often on YouTube and practice her techniques. This week I came across an old video she had done as part of her ferrero Friday videos. I didn’t have flamelits set that she used in her demo, so I changed it up a little and used swirly scribbles instead.

All you need for this wedding favour is-
7×7 cm square of wild wasabi card stock
4 small swirly scribbles die cuts from peekaboo peach card stock
Aprox 11cms of flirty flamingo ribbon

Score the wild wasabi card at 1 and 2 cms on all four sides,
Cut off 3 little squares as shown on photo below
Glue and fold in the flaps to make a little tray.
Add the swirls to each side then attach the ribbon around the edge.
Add chocolate and it’s done!

Peekaboo Card

My inspiration for todays peekaboo card comes from Dawns stamping thoughts, she is on youtube and her videos are really clear and straight forward for what looks like quite a complicated card. Here is a link to the video.

This is my video showing the card working

I have used

Sweet Sugarplum card stock

Blooms and Bliss DSP

Oval punch

Perfect pairing (which is no longer available) but there are plenty of other sentiments to choose from.

Peekaboo Slider Card

Hi, today a Peekaboo Slider Card, with inspiration from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on YouTube I made this card. Originally I made the birthday one, one of the ladies in my class put flowers on the front of hers, and I thought I like that.

Thomas Train Easel Card

A friend of mine was asked to make a card for a 3 year old who loves Thomas the Tank Engine, who doesn’t! As I have said before I am not the most creative of people so I popped on to pintrest and youtube to seek inspiration. Patsy Waggoner had a great video and blog with just want I was looking for click here for her video. I play with Punch Art from time to time and pleased that I had the punches I needed.
