Gift of Kindness Sketch Card

  The second of three sketch cards this month features the Gift of Kindness stamp set.  We again started with a Whisper White panel 4.25 x 1.5.  Starting in the middle we swiped ink across in Marina Mist then to either side in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy.  We stamped over the sponging then cut the panel apart.  Last thing we added a circle panel and our greeting.

Holiday Home Sketch Card



Welcome Stampers!  Today I'm Sharing card one or three I did for my October Monthly Sketch Class.  Sketch Class is to help stampers get comfortable with designing their own cards.  This months sketch was fairly simple but as we have learned from the past simple doesn't always mean it will be easy.  This card required a little extra work with our sponges and paper trimmers.  Each of the three cards start with a panel of Whisper White card stock that is 4.25 x 1.5.  For this card with then stamped our house colored it with Blendabilities and then put a mask on it that we cut using the Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies.  With the mask applied we sponged off the mask with Pear Pizazz and Soft Sky.  Cut three quarters of an inch off the top then one inch off the top stamped and applied to top panel that we had cut stars from.  we then pieced in a Daffodil Delight panel under the stars and mounted it to the front of a Calypso Coral card base.

October Technique- Four Feathers Card


The first Thursday of the Month is always Technique Class at the Power House Studio.  This month we did an Embossing Resist Deconstructed.  We started with a Whisper White panel embossed the Feathers in Clear with Versamark and then sponged on Blushing Bride Ink.  We then sponged Rich Razzelberry over the Feathers to highlight then and used the random speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Black Berry Bliss Ink.  Then we whipped off any excess ink from the Feathers with a paper towel and the last step was to drop a few drops of water from an Aqua Painter on to make water blotches.   We finished off the Card with a Feather that was inked in Rich Razzelberry and Rock-and-Rolled in Black Berry Bliss and one cut from Glimmer Paper.   This Blushing Bride Cotten Ribbon is so sweet it is the just right contrast to our Grunge Card.

Sunflower Just for Fun

Hello Stampers!  Today I'd like to share a card I made just for fun.  I saw the idea to use the Flower Frenzy Die to make a sun flower somewhere on Pintrist and so I had to try it.  You cut out a stack of three of the largest flower on the die then you recut the flower turning it just a little each time on the Die so that you end up with these pointy little shreeded petals.  then I added the Early Espresso center that I had Embossed.  The Greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set.  The Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used for the Background.  Thanks for stopping buy!

Mingle all the Way Thanksgiving Card



The second card for my travel classes in October is also featuring the Color Me Autumn DSP pulling out the Cajan Craze and Soft Suede but this time accented with Gold Glimmer Paper and a soft Suede Feather from the four Feathers bundle.  The phrase for the center is from the Mingle all The Way Stamps Set and then cut out with a frame from the Chalk Talk framelits.  The Linen Thread was added last tied onto the feather after they were attached to the card with dimentionals.

Merry Everything Thanksgiving Card


Happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing a card from my Traveling Class.  These are the projects I take on the road for those that book private classes and I will also be doing them at the area Libraries I teach at.

   This first card features the Merry Everything Bundle which includes the Merry Everything Stamp Set and the Note Tag Punch.  The Champagne Glitter paper and the leaf framelits from the Fun Fall Framlits pack. 

The stamp was inked up in Soft Suede Ink and then Cajan Craze Stampin' Write Marker was added to the lover part of the word YOU.   One trick when making the kits if you cut from the back side of the glimmer paper you can cut through two sheets at one with the framelits.

Center in the Park Card Two Shining Star


For the ladies at The Center in the Park I wanted to limit the number of Supplies they have to bring along to assemble their cards.  This card Features the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set with it included inside and outside greetings.   Since everyone has some kind of Brown Ink I thought we would do a Brown card.  So we are using Early Espresso Stamped in versamark and embossed in Gold on a Baked Brown Sugar Base with embossed Lucky Stars Embossing folder.  The nice thing is I can pass around the Textures Boutique machine and everyone can give it a try.  This card is accented with the new Gold Glitter paper and I used one of the tags from chalk talk to cut the greeting.  I'm happy it turned out elegant not depressing I was worried about using Early Espresso for a Christmas Card but it is very nice sort of neutral classes with some shine.

Card Class at Center in the Park Card one of Two Joyful Wreath



  I'm thrilled to be invited back to Center in the Park to do Card with a wonderfully fun group of hardcore crafters.  This card is very similar to the one I did for September's Hostess Club with it having a wreath and a door.  This time I did it in Christmas colors.  I used Wild Wasabi paper and ink to start.  I then over stamped with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Berries that are topped with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.  The Hardwood Stamp is Chocolate Chip on Sahara Sand.  The Joy is cut from Real Red Glitter Paper.  All on a Cherry Cobbler Cut and Ready Card Base.  There is so much to love about this Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set.  The taps on the stamps the tabs on the matching framelits, the photopolomer that can bee see through to line up leaves, the words in the framelits the word in the stamp set and on and on.  I have a feeling this card will be a hit!
