Affection Collection

This is the most gorgeous stamp set EVER! I am totally in love with it. Now I know that it's a long way off valentine's day but I had to make a couple of anniversary cards this week and I was just so thrilled with this new set (in the new seasonal catalogue - 127946, in wood or 127949, in clear).
I enjoyed making these cards and the gift box so much that I'm sharing them with you at my next class. Oh, and by the way don't you just love the deep pink of that card stock? It's 'raspberry ripple' one of the new 'in colours', I adore it.

Late July Class projects

Framelits Twitterpated
Apothecary Art Framelit Card
Stampin' Up! Apothecary Art
Apothecary Art Framelit Swing Card
During July I ran two card classes due to holidays and stuff - mainly my ladies demanding an extra class!  I was really dying to use the gorgeous Apothecary Art stamp set and wanted to also show case the Framelits die cutting set again as I just love the versatility of this piece of kit.  Both these products are available from the Summer mini catalogue which is only going to be available until the end of August, so don't miss out.
The first one is a very simple mat and double layer card - this is what is so fantastic about this stamp set, you only need to stamp it onto one layer and then colour it using ink pads and a blender pen.  I finished this one off with some pearl jewels and a bit of our beautiful pleated satin ribbon in Baja Breeze (again this is in the Summer mini - don't miss out!).
The Second card was a bit trickier looking but really quite easy using the Big Shot - I so love my Big Shot!!  I have to thank Michelle Last for this design (check out her gorgeous blog).  I used another two images from the Apothecary Art stamp set, one on the front and one inside.  This is a lovely finish to the card by lining it with a layer of Twitterpated designer series paper and then stamping and cutting out the little plaque to write your message on.  I used Stampin' Write markers to colour this and put a few little pearls on to accent it.

Flying high for Dad!

Stampin' Up! Up, Up and Away stamp set, framelits labels collection die set, Bigz Dies Two Tags

I have been dying to use some of the products in the new Summer mini catalogue and so I couldn't wait to put together these lovely cards for my May class in Howden.  Inspired by Father's Day I wanted to use some bright and funky colours as well as the gorgeous 'Up, Up and Away' stamp set.
On Saturday 26th May you can attend my card making class in Howden (click my Classes tab for details of location and times) and make these two cards and a gift card holder for Dad.
I've used rich razzleberry card stock as my main colour with old olive and pacific point as my accent colours.  I've also used the brand new Framelits Labels collection die for the Big Shot to cut out the super layer in white on the left hand card and I've used the Two Tags Bigz die to cut out the old olive layer on the card on the right, this die was also used to make the gift card holder insert.
It should be an exciting class as each project uses dies, stamps, inks and markers and a bit of cutting too!
