Tuesday Class

Well what a colourful set of cards this class I LOVE them all :-)

The first card is a take on the catalogue one I just added some of the new dotty ribbon to the top.  I adore the balloons with the white chalk marker to make the shine look real!  My class card was the stripy skirt but one lady wanted to try the flowered skirt and we could not beleive how different they looked (both gorgeous).  It was easy to line up the different stamps and I deffo think I will be making lots more in different colour variations..









The next two cards were from our Team Retreat Day session at Peterborough and this next card below was designed by my lovely demo friend JoJo Poskitt it is just so effective and the layout is just so pretty.  JoJo designed it as her swap card (20 ladies all made 20 cards then we all swap so go home with 20 different cards - its fabulous) I asked if I could use it for class as my Mum was lucky enough to win first prize in the raffle and won this stamp set and framelets bundle!! 






This last card was also from our Team Day and was one of the kits that Monica Gale (my fantastic upline) designed and the room was buzzing when we saw it, I am loving the fancy fold and the papers, flowers and greeting.  The day was just marvelous all round.  My class ladies thought both cards from the day were fabulous and enjoyed making them both.










Another great class thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and another class at the end of July so winner winner for July all round.

It is my other half Martyn's birthday tomorrow, was my neice Hannah's birthday Monday and one of my lovely class member Kay's birthday on saturday so a busy month so far for birthdays.

Tuesday Class

Another lovely class with my ladies a lot of banter and chat today the class just flew past us, I made homemade scones and we had them with naughty whipped cream and jam and strawberries yummy.

I made this clever little box card on the Gift Bag Punch Board once you get the hang of where to punch and score it puts together quickly and looked cute with the cheeky birds, butterflies, snail and watering can (I am loving this hostess stamp set).  I prepped the class with the flower punch as silver sparkle added on flaps did not realise it has now sadly retired.  Coloured in with the markers and the DSP is from previous catalogue as prepped before my new order had been done so had to use what had in stock.  My ladies loved it and I measured it so that it fits in a standard C6 envelope when folded flat.

 This card again was used with last catalogue's 3 way punch as my order had not gone in when prepped class the new version of this 3 way corner punch is available and just as lovely as this one.  The vivid vases stamp set is great realy summery and available with the punch as a bundle to save some pennies if ordering it together.  I have copied this card off Pinterest and just changed some of the colours used I love the way the white ink looks with the petals inked in yellow very summery.

It's them cheeky birds again in their cute welly boots running away from the water coming down the strawberry plant.  I made the water with one of the flower petal stamps from the vivid vases set was wondering how I could create the water then just spotted it and thought wow that's it lol !  Coloured with markers and added some Wink of Stella to the water to make it glisten.  A simple card albeit a lot of fiddly cutting out as we made the strawberries 3D by stamping twice and fussy cutting them out.

Tuesday Class


My cards for this weeks class were inspired by my fabulous upline Monica Gale who showed us some new colouring techniques at our monthly training session.



This card was made using some of the lovely Sale-a-bration free DSP card which is embossed in silver - gold and rose gold in different patterns it is super to use with inks.  This technique was made using the sponge brayers in 3 different coloured inks to get the colouration from light to dark.  Topped with a vellum circle cut with framelets and the sneakers from the Sale-a-bration stamp set was layered on top with silver thread looped inbetween the layers.  A simple ribbon and greeting from the Panda set finished this card off a treat.

This card was made with one of the new bundles available from the Sale-a-bration products, for a £90 order you could receive this fab embossing folder and matching basket stamp set (These will both be carried forward into the new June 2018 Catalogue if you miss them in Sale-a-bration).  One of the new colouring ideas show by Monica was to pain your stamped images using the re-inkers and simply drop a drop onto an accrylic block then paint with a blender pen onto the image (and a little goes a long long way).  The image was stamped with Versamark Ink then embossed with white emboss poweder and set with the Stampin' Up! heat tool.  The basket weave embossing folder is so so nice and the texture is lovely and thick.  The edge was fancied up with the border punch and all seated on a Daffodill Delight card blank.   Just great for Easter.

These gorgeous little silver boxes are available in packs of 12 and are so quick and simple to put together, we embossed it in the bog shot with the basket weave folder which made it pop 3D and look amazing.  The basket stamp was used again so it matched the card above to be sent as an Easter treat.

This one was the class sample made by me to show how it all went together.


This one was made by my mum at class and she wrote my neice's name on to fill with easter goodies.


This one was made by Esther who carefully cut round the handle as she wanted to pop the butterly on which looked super cute.

It goes to show with a few alterations how different one little sample could be with different peoples ideas on their own projects.
