This little piggy....

Up until this month, my new piggy set had not touched ink!  SO I set to work with it and whipped up a bunch of customer thank you cards.  Thank you Kristine McNickle for your design that I haved CASED here. 

There are four different pigs in the 'This Little Piggy' stamp set.  They are super cute!  I enjoyed colouring these little guys with my aquapainter and ink from the ink pad lids.  The watercolour card works very well for this technique.

The sequins used are from the Iridescent assortment in the annual catty.  I am using the new ombre ribbons heaps.  Lemon Lime Twist is featured on these cards.

The 'Pinewood Planks' dynamic Embossing Folder is very cool and can be used across multiple occasions/ styles.

Nadia and I have space in our scrapbooking class next Fri (1/09).  Beginners welcome.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

My class participants made this project last month.   Well I think it was last month LOL.  ALL the stamps you see in this project are in the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' set.  There are 32 stamps in the set. 

In choosing the colour scheme, I was inspired by the coordinating 'Foil Frenzy' DSP.  I chose:  'Soft Sky', 'Lemon Lime Twist' and 'Berry Burst'.   

The balloon and label border stamp both have coordinating punches.  I used the layering oval dies to mat the top sentiment (and on the back of the box).  The Embossing Folder is 'Petal Burst'.

See that sweet felt bow?  Super cute right?  They come in the new in-colors and you get 20 in a pack.  The card folds down and we made an envelope (using the envelope punch board).

Have an awesome day!  x

Life is a Beautiful Thing

Nelson's July Extravaganza has been and gone.  It was another awesome day.  Five demonstrators taught a different project each so all the guests left with five handmade items. 
I taught a double front card this time using the gorgeous 'Colorful Season' bundle.  The colour scheme is:  Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.

When you open the card an extra panel is found.  We die cut this sweet chair for the second panel on a wash of 'Tranquil Tide'.

'Just Breathe'- what an awesome sentiment.  This was gold embossed.  How sweet are those Powder Pink blossoms?

The final Nelson Extravaganza for the year is November 25th.  Please contact me to book in.  It's a fun day for sure.

My next card making class is Friday 18th August (one space available).
Our next scrapbooking class is Friday Sep 1st.

Thanks for visiting today. x
