Card Making Class June Projects
Here’s a quick roundup of what we made in our card making class in June.
The first card was inspired by a card from Sandi McIver. We just changed a couple of elements.
The simplicity of this lends itself to any occasion. The stamp set used here is Southern Serenade, stamped in Memento Black and coloured using watercolour pencils and a blender pen. The layer behind this is Gold Foil and the card base is Cherry Cobbler.
The next card was made using Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set. Isn’t that a lovely name for a pretty set of stamps?
We used a card base of Pool Party, a silver striped layer from Springtime Foils Specialty designer series paper a mat of Pool Party and the picture mat of Whisper White. We coloured the flowers using Stampin’ Blends. Did you know that there are now more colours available in the Stampin’ Blends? Check out page 205 in the new Annual Catalogue.
It’s the simplicity and softness that really make this pretty card.
The 3rd card we made using the Graceful Garden stamp set. This was inspired by a card from Gosia MacKinnon.
The card base was Crumb Cake and the wood elements are strips of Wood Textures designer series paper to create a fence or trellis frame. We stamped the rose on Whisper White, coloured with Stampin’ Blends and cut out using paper snips and mounted on dimensionals.
Chocolate Treat Time
Finally, with a bit of time still remaining we made a quick chocolate treat holder. Using a 5cm (2″) strip of designer series paper we punched both ends using the Scalloped Tag punch (retired). We threaded some ribbon through the holes and attached the chocolate with a glue dot to hold it in place. A really easy and cute way to create a small thank you or a table gift.
Our next card making class is coming up on the 9th July. You can register now at the classes tab above, we’d love to have you join us and make some lovely cards to wow your family and friends.
