Petal Garden and Blooms and Wishes

At the last class we used some papers from the Petal Garden DSP pack to make a pop up card, pairing it with sweet sugarplum card and ribbon. We used the Blooms and Wishes stamp set.  We also used this stamp set to make another card, trimmed with Powder Pink ribbon. The third card used dies from the Seasonal Layers set and I forgot to take a photo of the fourth card before giving it away!!
The next class is planned for Friday 4th August and I will be putting through a group order after the class.

Today's class

In the class this morning  we made two cards using the 'Beautiful You' stamp set and two using the 'Nailed it' stamp set - both sets are from the new spring summer catalogue.  I always find it difficult to make cards for men so this new set is perfect and I was pleased to find a tutorial for making the tool chest on Queen B Creations blog.

21st birthday

I made this card recently using Island Indigo card and DSP from the Blooms and Bliss pack (I had to buy a second pack of this paper as I was afraid to use it all up!) I cut the 21 using the Large Numbers Framelits and then painted over them with the clear Wink of Stella brush to make them glitter.  most of the flowers were made with the Petite Petals stamps and matching punch, although the larger flower was made with a retired stamp and punch.  The leaves were die cut from Mint Macaron card using the leaves from Botanical Builder Framelits set. I am entering this card in the Simon Says challenge (Anything goes), Allsorts (Let's celebrate) and Die cutting divas (Anything goes)

Moon Baby

The first stamp set I ordered from the new Spring Summer catalogue was 'Moon Baby' and I have made quite a few cards with it already.  This is one of the ones we made at the January class and as I had got the 'Any Occasion' set from Sale-a-bration we used it for the sentiment.  The image was coloured using the new watercolour pencils and the Aqua painters. I painted over the moon and stars with the Wink of Stella brush to make them shimmery - although it doesn't show up all that well in the photo. I am entering it in the Simon Says challenge this week as it is 'Anything Goes.'
