Do your kids love craft but you don’t want to do it with them or don’t have the skills? Come along to my weekly or monthly kids classes.

Another card from the class. This was made by a 7 year old.

Please stay tuned for my video on how to make these cards using the masking technique we used in the class.

If you would like any information on kids classes or adult classes please contact me. I’m always happy to answer any of your questions.

Happy crafting.

Simple vellum card

My vellum card class was a huge success. Most participants had not used vellum before and enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about vellum.

This is a very simple but stunning card we made during the class. If you live in Brisbane and would like to know more about my classes please contact me. You can also attend the card and scrapbooking classes by mail.

There were only 3 layers on the card. The base Whisper White cut at 14.8 x 10.5 cm, folded and scored down the middle. The Daffodil Delight measures 14.3 x 10cm. The vellum is 13.8 x 9.5cm. The vellum was run through the Bigshot using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder. To adhere the vellum to the Daffodil Delight cardstock I used double sided tape but the tape was covered with the co-ordinating Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon.

One thing with vellum is because it is see through you have to be careful where you place your tape or glue. This card was easy to hide the tape. I just used the ribbon.

This is just a stepped up version. Of course this card is stunning by itself. It didn’t really need any thing else added to it. A friend asked me to make a card for her and I used the elegant design and just added the birthday details. 

Why don’t you try vellum on your next card and show me what you’ve done?

Happy crafting.

Stampin’ Around Wheels

What is one of the most overlooked Stampin’ Up! products? In my opinion it’s the Stampin’ Around Wheels. I just wanted to show you how beautiful they are.

This is a cute little card I made with the Baby Tee wheel when my friends had a little girl. It was so easy. I just used my ink pad to ink up the wheel and I rolled it three times over the whisper white card base. I then rolled it once over a piece of pink pirouette cardstock and cut out the three pink jumpsuits. I added a bit of colour with my stampin’ write markers just to add a bit of detail. Girl was then stamped onto the lower left hand corner.

The cute little coat hanger is from the Hung Up Cute clips and I think it just adds a fun detail.

Why not have a go and use a wheel on your next card. It’s so very effective. Don’t you agree?
