Wow, what a tutorial!!

My clever friend, Bronwyn Eastley at Addinktive Designs, has put out a call for members to join her Addinktive Design Tutorial Design team.

I love her tutorials!  The cards are amazing, and her instructions have great photos and lots of detail.  I purchased the Z-fold card with a Picket Fence tutorial last year and ran it as a class for my regular stamping class.  I realised I didn’t blog about it, so here we go!!

I love the Jars of Love set.  I was a little late to the party getting this set, but I’m so glad I did.  When I did this card as a class, I actually stamped and cut out all the flowers for my 10 ladies.  Yes, ALL OF THEM!!  Did you know that adds up to about a million flowers!  Well, it felt like it!!

So here it is closed, so you can see it does fit into a standard envelope.

Here’s a front on view. (BTW, it’s not the easiest card to photograph!!)

Can you see the Z?

Isn’t it pretty!!

Whilst it was a challenge to make this in a class, the ladies did a great job and really enjoyed it.

I’m going to have to try this one using a different stamp set and see how it turns out.

Let me know what you think!

Happy Stamping

It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of June!  Where is the year going?  I have to say that I am really enjoying doing the Colour Challenges with Colour Inkspiration.  I am “challenged” nearly every time but I love pushing myself and stepping outside the traditional boundaries that I set for myself.

Speaking of challenges, here is another one!  You can choose at least 4 of these colours – Whisper White, Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Smoky Slate and Peekaboo Peach.

I had a couple of attempts with my card for this challenge.  I didn’t like them so you don’t get to see them!  I wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set so I went back to the drawing board and started with a white base.  I then stamped the jars in Smoky Slate.  I actually wanted to use the flowers in the stamp set but I discovered that there isn’t a green in our colours so I couldn’t work out how to do the stems!  Then I realised that there is a fish stamp with a matching framelit so hello fishies!!

I’m not sure what sort of fish they are, but mine are Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach!

There’s a cute sentiment in the stamp set, Best Fishes, so this will be my brother-in-law’s birthday card as he is a wanna-be fisherman.  I wasn’t sure what to do with the sentiment but felt the card needed something at the top as well.  I decided to stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate then stamp it another two more times before inking up again.

Now all I have to do is remember that I have made his card by the time his birthday comes around in September!!

Next up is the amazing Denita Wright-Smee.


Don’t forget that you can share your projects using this combo on our Facebook group.
