18 May 2012 – May Stamp Club – No. 2

Here’s the 2nd card that we will be making on Saturday.  I cased this one from here.  Isn’t it lovely!!  and not as hard as it looks.  I coloured the pearls with the Poppy Parade marker.  Slightly messy but might work better if I had stuck them onto the card first.  We’ll do that on Saturday, so that we don’t need up with red fingers like I did yesterday!

Stamp Set: Happiest Birthday Wishes (will be sad when this one goes as it’s a hostess set)

Ink:  Poppy Parade

Paper:  Attic Boutique DSP, Pool Party, Whisper White

Accessories: Lace Ribbon border punch, pearls, whisper white grosgrain ribbon, Pool Party Ruffled ribbon.

Back for the last one tomorrow.

 

26 September 2011 – Class Cards

Hi everyone,

Isn’t spring a lovely time of year!!  Not too hot, not too cold, just right!!

Here are a couple of cards that we did at my recent stamp club.  The girls enjoyed making them!!  The first is a petal card, thanks to a great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by Beate Johns (click here for the link).  I felt it wasn’t too hard to make and looks pretty good, if I do say so myself!!  I love this paper too!! (and the Perfect Pennants die!!)

Here’s a picture of it open.

The other card that we made used my other favourite new paper, Mocha Morning Specialty.  I love the velvet feel to a couple of the pages!!

I did case this card but I can’t find where from, but thank you!!

I used markers to ink the stamp and I think it came out really well.  I love this technique!!
