Punches Part I

Pin It
Hi Everyone
This week in our technique classes we will be discovering some of the cool things that you can do with punches. We will make samples of a few basic objects such as handbags and cupcakes (got to make sure you girls have your bling fix!) and then we will make the 2 cards show below. The first one is the frog. This is the basic card, but we will jazz it up a bit more.

Then the one I know many of you have been wanting to try, with a dress and a handbag. Just wait until I show you some of the cards I have made for our more advanced punch classes, you will be hooked on punches as well as stamps!

Below is one of the cards from last weeks watercolour class. This card uses 5th Avenue, Oval All and the Inspired by Nature stamp sets. I've also used the crimper to add extra texture to the background. We had a great time with this technique. All you do is emboss your image, spray it with water and then drop ink onto it. The ink will spread out in the water giving you some amazing results.

An Update on Classes

Pin It
Below is a photo of my Mother's cat Cleo. She is sleeping in what was my Door Prize Draw bag. I now have to make a new one as it is well beyond repair even with sticky strip!

Here's a peek at what we have been doing in our recent classes. Tomorrow we are going to be trying all types of watercolouring techniques. Below is my first atempt at watercolouring on actual watercolour paper rather than cardstock. It is fabulous to use and makes blending so much easier. I am certainly hooked!

Last week we learnt the Spotlighting and Reverse Spotlighting techniques that you can see in the 3 cards below.

Time to Catch Up Again!

Hi there - I know I said I'd put up more photos from the Spring Mini in a couple of days, but as usual, I got too busy!
I just love the Great Friends set that I have used below. This card was lots of fun to make & pretty heavy by the time I had added all the layers. I've used Kiwi Kiss, Basic Grey, Whisper White & Basic Black. I also used the Fresh Cuts stamp set to make the strip of script under the ribbon.

Guess what? It's the Great Friends set again, along with some of the gorgeous Walk in the Park designer series papers.

This super cute card is made with using the Forest Freinds set. Notice the new flower brad too.

A Few Samples From Our New Spring Mini Catalogue

Pin It
I've had a great time playing with all the new stamps and accessories and they were certainly a hit at my launch party yesterday. Here are a few samples that I have made. If you would like to know how to make any of them, please feel free to Contact Me

I have more that I need to photograph, so keep checking over the next few days.

This is the card that we made at my launch party. It uses the new Great Friend set, which is so versatile and very well priced at just $37.95!

Sense of Time ($46.95) is a fantastic set for scrapbooking and for more masculine cards, which can sometimes be challenging.

I love the simplicity of this card using the Tree Trimmings set ($28.95).
