At our last class we all received the beautiful Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and Tin! We made four cards and had lots to take home with what was left over.
Our first card was cased from the catalogue. There was a lot of stamping and a little watercolouring involved. It’s a pretty simple card but looks lovely with the laser cut card.
The embellishments add a nice finishing touch.
For our second card we stamped on watercolour paper and coloured the birds with watercolour pencils and activated them with the aqua painter.
We stamped, coloured and fussy cut the flowers and once again finished the card off with the beautiful Bird Ballad Trinkets.
The Old Olive card stock provides a nice contrast behind the laser cut card.
On our third card we had the option to cut out the centre of the laser cut card to use on another project.
We used Crumb Cake as the background colour.
The birds were cut out from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Shapes Dies and I used the scalloped Lace Trim to create a border around the focal part.
I kept the last card very simple using Pretty Peacock and Very Vanilla.
I wanted to feature the laser card as much as possible and I love the contrast the Pretty Peacock provides.
I cut the top off the die cut to create a banner and to disguise the ‘missing stitching’ and added the Scalloped Lace Trim with another gorgeous flower trinket from the suite.

Don’t forget to make the most of Sale-A-Bration! There’s only a few weeks to go…
We have begun our second Blends Club classes for the year.
Everyone commits to 4 months of classes and will receive 4 new Stampin’ Blends each class worth $31. Everyone received a bonus Sale-a-Bration item for blends club on this round.
Our colours this month were Lovely Lipstick and Pretty Peacock and we focused on these colours alone.
We used the stippled colouring technique. You use the bullet point of the dark blend pen to make small dots on the shaded area then blend with the light pen to get the look you want.
Here’s the cards we made.
The first card was using the Forever Blossoms Bundle.
The second card used the FREE Sale-A-Bration set “Power of Hope” stamp and textured embossing folder.
My product of the week is the Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set. I love design, it’s great as a background stamp.
Discover your inner rococo with the picturesque design of the Very Versailles Stamp Set!
Last Friday I used it at my Library class and we had a fun morning creating these two cards simply by stamping. Thanks for coming to class and for letting me share your photo ladies.

I love this Floral Essence stamp. It can be used in so many ways.
In this video I’m demonstrating the stunning black ice technique. It’s quite simple but very effective. The clear embossing powder gives an illusion of a film of ice.
I hope this inspires you to try it!
