WOYWW 269

I forgot today was Wednesday so I'm a bit late with my WOYWW picture (click HERE for details).  I'm preparing for my class in The Fair Ladies Craft Emporium - so busy cutting, folding etc, to get all the wee packs made up.  I just hope I don't forget something vital - all my classes so far have been held at home, so it's easy to pop up to my craft room if there's something else we need - and I've a head like a sieve these days!!

Notelets set

I made up some of the coloured poppies into a wee notelet set using two of the new 'In colours' - Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  The paper is from the 'Moonlight' paper stack and I've used the Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write marker for stamping and the ribbon is also Blackberry Bliss.  The box was made using the envelope punch board and holds the four cards and envelopes (4" x 4") and is held closed with the co-ordinating belly band.  I think I will maybe make up a few of these sets in different colours/designs for our next craft fair!

Blendabilities

I have been trying out the new blendabilities pens by trying out a variety of colours on the same image.  Unfortunately this stamp is no longer available, but I thought it was a good one to use to try out shading with the new pens.  The first one is using Cherry Cobbler, the second Rich Razzleberry, next one is Daffodil Delight and the final one Coastal Cabana.  Sorry the photos are not particularly sharp, but my camera doesn't seem to like to take very close up photos!!  The lighting isn't exactly great either - all of the images are stamped on white card, but the first three were taken without the flash.  Although the colours match exactly with the card, ribbon etc of the same name, they also co-ordinate with some of the other colours - for example, the Rich Razzleberry also works with the new Blackberry Bliss card and the Daffodil Delight with the new Hello Honey colour.

Maritime

This is one of the cards we made at the class on Friday morning, using my favourite set of papers from the new catalogue - 'Maritime'.  The background card is Night of Navy and the anchor is from The Open Sea set of stamps.  We also used the banner punch to do the wee flags down the side.
