Another Watercolor wings and Happy Birthday everyone

The weekly card class recommenced last Monday after  little break due to my holiday with the following two square cards. We used one of the new in-colours Mint Macaron for both cards. This shade has become a favourite of mine out of the 2015/16 in-colours

The Watercolour wings set was inked up again with a colour combination of baked brown sugar along with the mint macaron to create this beautiful butterfly.  When I first designed the card the whisper white was blank apart from the sentiment, and was not totally happy with the card. I left it on my desk overnight and when I returned the following day, decided to emboss part of it with the boho chic embossing folder and felt it totally transformed the card and loved the end result. Hope you do too!

Can you spot the thin strip of envelope paper across the middle which co-ordinates very well with the ink and card and is layered onto a piece of mint macaron dotted lace trim?

The second card highlights two new stamp sets Wild about Flowers and one of the new Hostess Exclusive sets Happy Birthday Everyone. 

 Wild About Flowers uses a two step stamping technique to create the flowers and stems separately. Colours used are mint macaron and blackberry bliss. Some flower heads used the second generation stamping technique to get a lighter image

Happy Birthday, Everyone contains many sentiments but I particularly love the beautiful large Happy Birthday font which was stamped in Blackberry Bliss onto a background of 'Hardwood' inked in sahara sand.

Watercolor wings and build a birthday candles

On returning home from our fabulous cruise holiday around the Mediterranean I have been catching up this week with my blog when I realised I had missed posting a couple of cards made earlier this month.

The first of our makes uses the new Watercolour Wings stamp set and co-ordinating bold butterfly framelits along with the new Butterfly embossing folder as a background. 

 We used Baked Brown Sugar and Pink Pirouette for the butterfly which was layered onto a square piece of subtles designer series paper.

 The striped paper is from one of the sheets out of the in-color envelope paper pack. This was overlooked at first when i first browsed through the catalogue. The pack contains  20 sheets of text weight paper 2 each of 2 designs in the 5 in-colours for only £5.50. Although it is designed to make envelopes and liners it is also ideal to layer up and use on cards.

The second card was very quick to create and uses the Build-a-birthday stamps to create birthday candles sat upon three strips of paper taken from the Cherry on top designer series paper stack.  

I will be back soon sharing the cards we made in the classes last week

Sprinkles of life easel card and another build a birthday one

Morning everyone it looks like we're going to have another beautiful day here in Venice, hope you are too, back home. This is my first trip away this year and so far, all going to plan. I will post some photos later. 

Before I left it was very hectic, but I wanted to share a couple of cards we made recently In the classes.

We used the sprinkles of life and build a birthday stamp sets again for our cards.  I can't seem to stop using these stamp sets, they are so versatile from making cupcakes, baskets of flowers and candles. The list of cards one can produce from these two sets are endless.

The first of the cards is an easy easel card using so saffron, pink pirouette and baked brown sugar colour combination.there were two options: a cupcake or basket of flowers.

 These cards went down really well with everyone in all the classes, but the basket of flowers was the favourite one.

There were quite a few elements to making the cards and it took quite a while to complete. punching out all the flowers for the basket one kept them all quiet for a few minutes!

As the easel card was time consuming to complete, I made the second card a quicker one. One of the stamps from the work of art set was stamped five times in alternating colours of so saffron and pink pirouette to create a background. The cake was stamped up in layers using memento black and a few punched flowers added for decoration.

The word 'HAPPY' was written with a white gel pen on the banner on top of the cake and birthday wishes stamped at the bottom right of the card.this was another favourite and lots of ideas were discussed about how simple  it would be to create other similar cards in various colours for different occasions  like weddings and anniversaries.
