April Class


We'll be waving our flags this month in class as we make two lovely birthday cards using the Pennant builder punch.  The colour schemes won't be red, white and blue though but the cards will be great for male and female birthdays and we'll even be making a little gift box to match the ladies card using the Pillow Box Big Shot die.



I'm sure we'll have a fun crafty morning, so if you want to join us please drop me an e-mail before Wednesday so I know how many kits to make up.

A Commissioned Card

I just thought I'd share a card with you that I was asked to make.  My sister has been invited to a wedding and the bride and groom are both anglers. Their wedding invitation had a 'two people in a boat fishing' theme and she wanted to send an acceptance card along similar lines.
As this is a commissioned card I was able to use some items that aren't Stampin' Up! and some that are but are from 'retired' sets.
So, the gorgeous fishing owls were made using the two-step owl punch (current catalogue), their wings were made using the 2-step bird punch (current catalogue), their boat is Stampin' Up! designer paper from a retired series.  I made their fishing rods using cotton buds; snipped the cotton ends off and then coloured the stalks with permanent black marker.  The water was made using the scalloped edge border punch (current catalogue) and the sentiment 'aint love grand!' is part of a hostess stamp set which you can earn by hosting a party.  Inside the card I stamped another sentiment; 'Thank You' which allowed my sister to say thanks for the invite.  When I finished the card I thought - OMG is it too childish? but my sister re-assured me that it was just what she was hoping for - phew!  Being an angler myself I rather liked the fact that the lady owl caught the fish!!
