    Card Class March 2021

    I held my March card classes a few days ago and we made the following cards. We used the Hydrangea Hill Suite.

    I had five wonderful  groups of ladies attend classes and they all left very happy with their creations.

    For our first card, we used the brick embossing folder for the background, then to get the shimmer around the edges, we used the new blending brushes with shimmer paint.

    The shimmer paint is so easy to use and you get a lovely finish with the new blending brush.

    The flower of the hydrangea was cut out of the DSP using the Hydrangea Dies.

    The card has a lot of detail with multi layers and is finished off perfectly with the Gorgeous Grape ribbon bow.

    We used Rococco Rose cardstock for the base of this card adding a bit of pink.

    The background was created using the Old World Paper Textured 3D Embossing Folder which gives a lovely effect. The stem of the hydrangea was stamped using the two-step stamping in the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set.

    The hydrangea flower head was simply die cut using the Hydrangea Dies. We popped  the petals out and added extra Gorgeous Grape and Basic White flowers for more colour and texture.

    We used Wink of Stella on the hydrangea flower to give it some sparkle and finished the card off using the Pastel Pearl embellishments.

    On this card we used Balmy Blue as the card base then we fussy cut the gorgeous Hydrangea DSP  to use as a background.

    For the stem, we stamped the whole flower image in Memento Black – cut it out with the dies, then added the Old Olive leaf accents which were also cut with the Hydrangea Dies.

    We then layered the hydrangea flower over the the top using the solid image, popping up the petals and covering it with Wink of Stella for that extra bit of sparkle.

    There are some lovely greetings in this Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set – we chose ‘The world is better because of you’.

    What a special sentiment to share with someone.

    This Misty Moonlight card is fairly simple with a little bit of layering. Once again we used the gorgeous Hydrangea DSP cutting it out with the dies.

    We stamped on the base of the card in Misty Moonlight  just to add a little bit of background detail.

    The greeting was made using the Triple Banner Punch and the ribbon was fishtailed to match the shape of the label.

    The card is finished off using lots of leaves and Pastel Pearl embellishments.

    Some new crafters have joined my class –  I want to extend a warm welcome to Leanne and Nicole. 

    Nicole was the happy winner of one of the lucky door prizes from Craft Alive. I met Leanne and Nicole there when they visited our Stampin’ Up! stall a few weeks ago at the Gold Coast Turf Club.

    The last pic is Leanne and Helen showing off the wonderful cards that they made at class. They were very happy with what they made.

    Looking forward to another class with you all…

    I run card my classes on the first Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the month.

    So if you’d like to get creative with like-minded ladies, check out my class schedule for upcoming classes and book one in.

    Happy stamping,
