Card in a box class

These cards were created last year, for a class I ran last year. Laziness has prevented me from posting these pictures but here they finally are. This wasn’t quite a stamp-a-stack class. Participants made 10 cards, two of each card (although the 5th card is missing because I’ve already sent it).

This is such a simple card. I love, love, love stampsets with matching punches or dies. Petitie petal stamp and punch and the wonderous wreath stampset and dies made this card so easy to create.

I think this is one of my favourite cards in a long time. It is so simple and so stunning. Again the matching stampset and punch make this card so effective. Three flower stamp sets and three matching punches, flower shop,

Just an interesting way to use the Wetlands stampset.

Embellished events is the perfect stamp set for any occasion. It has a sentiment and image for every occasion.

Do you have trouble creating cards for the men in your life? I know I do. It’s one of the most challenging crafty things I do. My husband likes the cards to be very simple, very square and without fuss. Why not come along to my class on the 19th of December where we’ll make some cards for the men in your life as well as a whole heap of other cards as well.

This was an extremely simple card to create.

Cut a standard card base using Naturals White cardstock, I find this much better for masculine cards as it isn’t as harsh as Whisper White, with a top layer of Naturals White  measuring 10cm x 14.3cm.

Using World Maps  or a similar background stamp, stamp onto the top layer using Basic Grey ink.

Distress the edges of the top layer by using the edge of your scissors at a 90 angle and rubbing vigorously.

Further distress the edge by adding Crumbed Cake ink to the edge.

Using Memento ink stamp feathers from Four Feathers all the way along one edge of the card.

Finally stamp you sentiment along the bottom of the top layer.

This is not a standards size card for Australia although it still fits into our C6 envelopes. The Hexagon Hives die creates this beautiful background. I just stamped the Four Feathers stamp set over the whisper white in Lost lagoon, smoky slate and hello honey then added a few of the feather onto of the Hexagon Hives die cut out. Super easy.

This robot card is a CASe of a card in the catalogue however I did change it slightly based on the cardstock and supplies I had at home. Don’t forget to substitute from the example for what you have. The original  is on page 86 of the catalogue for those of you playing at home.

These are very easy cards to make. If you would like any further information about these cards or attending classes please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.

This simple card was created with a whisper white card base, a strip of whisper white (5cmx10.5cm), a strip of strawberry slush cardstock (5.5cm x 10.5cm), and a strip of paper to stamp the 3D flowers on.

1. Emboss the whisper white card base with the woodgrain embossing folder.

2. On your small strip of whisper white stamp one of the petite petals stamps all over, making sure some of your image goes off the edge of the whisper white.

3. Adhere the stamped whisper white to the strawberry slush cardstock then adhere this to the card base.

4. Stamp one flower from petite petals, flower shop, and beautiful bunch.

5. Using the co-ordinating punches punch these flowers out. Petitie petals punch, pansy punch and fun flower punch.  

6. Use your thumb to curl the flower petal up. This is achieved by pulling your thumb from the centre of the flower to the edge of the petal. The more dimension you create the more realistic they look.

7. Adhere the 3 flowers to each other using dimensionals.

If you have any questions or would like to book a workshop please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.
