Christmas In July Class

These were the cards that were made at my Christmas in July class.

First is an easel card, using the Apothercary Art stamp set, just to show that you can change the look of a stamp that you might not think about using for Christmas. You can't see in the picture, but the card base was stamped using VersaMark and one of the Confetti stamps to create a watermark effect background.


The second card is a CAS of Monica's  that we made at training last month. I changed a few things slightly, embossing the top part of the card and spraying the bottom with Champagne shimmer mist (made by mixing Shimmer Paint with Isopropanol Alcohol) I don't think the shimmer shows here sadly, but it does look pretty (trust me!)

The final card is actually a gift card holder, it is a nice way to co-ordinate your card and gift and is quite easy to make. I've scored a lattice effect onto the Crumb Cake card stock with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, it's really easy to do.

They have all been made with Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Old Olive cardstock.

I hope this has given you a taste of what to expect from one of my classes. Please see the tab for future class dates if you'd like to come along, I'd be very happy to see you.

Freshly Made Sketches #48

It's my brother in law's birthday next week, so I thought this weeks Freshly Made Sketch would be the perfect starting place. I hope you like my offering, cards for men can be so difficult.

This is the card I've created. Sorry it's a little bit blurry, I'll never make a photographer!

Freshly Made Sketches

I thought I'd take part in this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge using this sketch.

This is my version of it.

I've used a Whisper White card base, Daffodil Delight and Not Quite Navy. I'm not usually a big fan of yellow, however, I really love these two colours together, they somehow look fresh and summery (who doesn't love summer?) I used the square punch to create the fish tail ends to my banners.

A Reason To Smile

I've made a few thank you cards today, using the lovely Reason To Smile stamp set available for this month and this month only. I've used Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade card stock, for a fresh summer look.
