    May 2018 Class – Birthday Wishes for You

    I held three classes last week featuring the Birthday Wishes for You stamp set.

    Thank you to all who came, we had a fun time creating together. Instead of a lucky door prize, everyone got to take the stamp set home!

    The cards we made were cased from Anna Wheaton and Bec Ross. We showcased the stamp set using 3 different techniques.

    This first card uses the Stained Glass Technique.

    The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. The wording is then coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

    Since many adhesives show through vellum, we used 4 glue dots to attach it to the card front, then they were hidden with Rhinestones coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

    Products used in this project:


    The second card we made used the Watercolour Background Technique.

    We embossed the card first using Copper Embossing Powder.

    The background uses Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink ‘swooshed’ on with an Aqua Painter. When this was dry, we used the darker ink by picking it up with the Aqua Painter and flicking it onto the project.

    Products used in this project:


    The third card was made using the Patchwork Technique.

    This is great for using up pieces of off-cuts you may have. The pieces measured 3cm x 8.5 cm and they were stuck onto a Whisper White piece (10cm x 14.3cm).  Then the greeting was stamped and the white accents were stamped on scrap, fussy cut (fancy word for: cut out using scissors) then they were popped up on Dimensionals. The ribbon was attached, then the front was attached to the card base.

    The fourth card was inspired by Su Morh. 

    With Mother’s Day approaching, there was the option of making two cards. These cards were made by texture embossing vellum and die cutting words from the Celebrate You Thinlits set.

    Some of my customers wanted a third option, so we improvised and substituted the greetings using the Happy Birthday from the Birthday wishes for You! This also worked well 😍

    This class was outstanding value for $25 as everyone received the Birthday Wishes for You stamp set valued at $21. 

    I hope you enjoyed this selection of cards. If you would like to join us for our next class, please contact me on 0403 305 785 or email me.
