    Card Class May 2021 – Butterfly Brilliance

    I’m excited to share that I designed all of the cards for this class that we had last month. We used the Butterfly Brillance bundle and the Very Versailles stamp set.

    Vintage Card

    I used Pool Party and Crumb Cake on this card. I love the two colours together.

    Combining the Crumb Cake colour, sponging and distressing makes it easy to create a vintage look. I used the Very Versailles stamp for the subtle background as well as a butterfly.

    The die cut butterflies were also sponged to age them and the card was finished off with a few pearls on the greeting and some linen thread.

    Elegant Card

    I love the combination of Blushing Bride with Night Of Navy! Don’t you think it goes so well together?

    I used a few layers to give a bit of depth to this simple card. The card base is Basic White, the second layer is Night of Navy and the background white layer was stamped in Blushing Bride.

    I used an ‘E’ size Stampin’ Up! Acrylic block for the subtle rectangle background then stamped the beautiful foliage from the Very Versailles stamp set.

    The butterfly was die cut using the Brilliant Wings Dies and embellished with gold thread and gold faceted gems.

    The greeting was stamped using the Art Gallery stamp and it fit perfectly into the Treasured Tags Pick a punch.

    Fancy Fold Card

    This is a super simple but amazingly effective fancy fold card.

    I used Mint Macaron as the base and stamped the Butterfly Brilliance stamp on the front. The inside strip was decorated with the limited-edition Butterfly Bijou DSP which sold out super quickly!

    The centre flap has the Very Versailles background under the Brilliant Wings Die cut butterfly which is finished off with some Basic Pearls.

    Splash of Colour Card

    I used Magenta Madness as the bold base card and stamped in in matching ink once again using the Very Versailles stamp for the background. We added a strip embossed with the Painted Texture 3D folder.

    The different colours on the butterflies were created by sponging different sections in different colours and stamping on the Basic White using the Stamparatus. We then die cut the images and used dimensionals to pop them up.

    The biggest butterfly has a small die cut for extra texture and it’s finished off with Wink Of Stella for some subtle sparkle.

    If you would like to join us for classes, we’ll be using the Artistically Inked Suite in July.

    Card Class April 2021

    I held my April card classes last week and we made the following cards using the Handsomely Suited Bundle. They were fun Covid-safe classes, with five groups of ladies over three days.

    I cased this from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalogue but made a few changes.

    This card is so stylish and is a great masculine card. The handkerchief was stamped using the tip of the Tie stamp and hand cut to fit.

    I cased this card from Stamp it up with Jaimie.

    I changed the colours of the DSP and ties. This is another simple but very effective masculine card and the ladies at class had fun changing it up more to make them individual.

    I love seeing the creativity of my happy stampers when they finish their creations.

    I cased this next card from Juleen Henderson.

    We used the retired Cable Knit Embossing Folder as it was highly effective. I love the simplicity of this card but you do need to think about the order of layering before you stick pieces together.

    I found popping the collar up on dimensionals looked great and made adding the centre strip easier.

    I wanted to use this bundle to show that you could make feminine cards with it too.

    This was my design after lots of playing. I wanted to use the bows in the bundle but ended up using ribbon. The V can be cut using the dies and the Dainty Diamond embossing folder added a lovely texture.

    I used the button die to cut silver foil for the necklace and the stitched strip as the waist band on the dress. I hope you like it.

    They were the four cards we made at class but here’s a few more that I made as samples to show the versatility of this bundle.

    I came up with this design while playing around. It has a lot of pieces and detail that was layered. I added a double lapel using contrasting Very Vanilla for the collar.

    The detail in the pocket is lace ribbon and the necklace was made using gold cord, a tiny flower from the Hydrangea Dies and a Pearl. I used the Ornate floral 3D embossing folder to add texture to the jacket.

    I even added some skin tone above the collar.

    I hope you like my card.

    This card was very simple, the bow used as the embellishment is from the Handsomely Suited dies, I ran it through the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder for extra detail.

    I had fun creating this card at my last retreat. I cased it from Danielle Howard who cased it from Pinterest.

    I made a few changes and added my twist. I love the simple, clean look of this card.

    The tee-shirt with red bow tie gives it a ‘Sheldon’ look. The lapel and pocket was covered in packing tape before cutting it out with the dies, this give it the shinny look.

    The main part of the suit was run through the Subtle embossing folder.

    The ladies from Wednesday night class – thanks for allowing me to share your photos.

    I love seeing your variations of the cards. Creativity was flowing!

    I hope you enjoy this collection. If you want to come to my classes, please contact me.

    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,

    Prized Peony Bundle

    I’ve used the Peony Dies to create this beautiful 3D Peony flower. It’s a lot easier to make than it looks. I’ll share a few tips with you along the way.

    I’ve used Magenta Madness card stock and sponged with Melon Mambo ink to give a little more dimension to the Peony.

    I hope you enjoy creating with the Prized Peony bundle as much as I do.
