So here I am finally posting the cards from Monday night. I decided to do a box for my girls this time as well and instead of the class being 2 hours which it normally is it turned out being 3 hours. I was excited to have one of the girls from work come and try making cards for the first time. She had a great time and did a really good job with her cards and box. She was a really excellent student, listening and watching the others for hints on what to do next.
For the box I used the pizza box idea from Split Coast Stampers. The base of the card was made with soft suede card stock, then the layers are made with not quite navy, and some of the new DSP from the Occasions mini catalog called Botanical Gazette. It has a belly band made with very vanilla and another layer of the DSP. I layered up the modern label punch of very vanilla with cherry cobbler. The sentiment is from the Totally Tess stamp set. The the ribbon is made with the center being brought together with a circle rhinestone Brad.
The first card we did was a punch art card. The base of the card is concord crush. I did a layer of whisper white with a layer of Baja breeze on top. The tulips are made with the two step bird punch. I use the wing for the flower and cut the stem for the leaves on the vase and stems for the flowers and sponged the little wings the same color as the card stock which is daffodil delight and perfect plum. The sentiment is from the Oval All stamp set. It is layered up on the two large petals of the new build a blossom punch.
Our next card is made with our new thanks for caring stamp set, also from our new mini catalog. The new DSP called Springtime Vintage was used on this card as well. I used the 2 1/2 inch circle punch for the sentiment with rose red ink and always artichoke. I also use the vintage flower adornment in rose red and the always artichoke seam binding. Of course the girls are always happy when I put a bow on the card. I sponged around the top layer. The bottom layers are always artichoke and baja breeze.
For this card we used the hostess set of punch and used the new tulips embossing folder on rich razzleberry card stock. The black layer is embowed with the elegant lines folder. I stamped the sentiment twice and layered up the little heart on the end.
This card is made with the new Naturae Walk Stamp set. Iwas hard to limit myself to these cards as there is so much wonderful stuff from the nwe Mini Catalogue that I wanted to share. We used the faux silk technique of stamping on tissues paper and crumpling it and gluing it to the card stock. I was able to use the new bevelled window pane on this card as well. What great colors together. I used some more of the Botanical Gazette and embossed it with the tulip folder and sanded it to distress it.
I have some more cards to show you but better wait till tomorrow for that. It took me so long to do this post that now it is time to make supper.
Till next time.
