More Term 1 Classes

The Lotus Blossom set was my very first "must have" from the Sale-A-Bration promotion.  It is so pretty and looks great in heaps of colours.  This card was done with Strawberry Slush and Crumb Cake.  It is such a shame this is in the SAB promo as that means it will disappear forever at the end of March.

Yet another 'male' card for the stash.  This card used the Balloon Framelits and Celebrate Today bundle.  The Star background was created using the Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks.

Term 1 Class Projects

We made this cute little Mini Treat Bag as a Valentines Gift for our lovely hubbies.  It did until just a minute ago have a chocolate in it but I couldn't resist.  The Mini Treat Bag is a die in the Occasions Catalogue that can be used for so many different occasions.  With some Typeset DSP and Cherry Cobbler Glimmer Paper and a hint of love with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder to finish off, I hope all the hubbies enjoyed their little treats - that is if they weren't eaten on the way home??

One of my favourite goodies in the Occasions Catalogue is the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I do hope these go through to the next Catalogue. This card incorporates the Butterfly Basics stamps that co-ordinate with the dies and a little Gorgeous Grunge.  The butterflies are cut from Pink Pirouette and Vellum.  We added an Antique Brad and some twine and a very quick but pretty card.

I am not sure what this technique is called but it looks a little like the good old fashioned tie dying.  We used Watercolour paper and Ink Refills.  The Mosaic Madness images have been done with White Embossing Powder and the sentiment is from Hey You stamp set.   I love how the colours have blended and the best part of this technique is that you get a different look every time.

Classes Term 1

Another set of cards made this term:

Sadly we all need a Sympathy card every now and again and they aren't something you want to
have to make when you actually need it.  To create this effect we used the Window Frame dies to cut a window from a template the same size as the card front.  The image is from the World of Dreams stamp set and the words are from A Dozen Thoughts.  Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Shimmer White inks and cardstock.

We have done a few "male" orientated cards so far this term as I don't know about you but I have a shortage in my stash. This was a very quick and easy card using Balloon Bash from the Occasions Catalogue with Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy.

This pretty little Note Card Holder was created using one of the Gift Card Enclosures.  We added some Tea Lace Doilies some White Jute Ribbon and a vellum rose using the Spiral Flower Die.

Term 1 Class Projects

Well my poor neglected blog is finally getting some attention.  I wish I could clone myself and have an assistant to pick up the slack of things that I just don't get to do.  Oh well, back to reality.

I have several posts coming up with the projects we have done this term. So here we go.

This card uses the Big Day Stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration freebies promotion that ends at the end of March!  The colours are Soft Suede and Lost Lagoon.

The Sheltering Tree stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue has been very popular.  It is so versatile and looks great is heaps of different colour combo's.  This version was tailored towards the males in our lives.

The colours have changed a little in this photo.  I used Gorgeous Grunge and Six Sided Sampler along with the Itty Bitty Accents and Hexagon punches.  The colours are Crumb cake , Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky.  A bit of bling and done.
