What Did You Do Yesterday? We Made Cards …

Yesterday was my Tuesday monthly card class.  Curious to see what we made?

This was the first card using the dandelion stamps from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.  We clear embossed these on Watercolour Paper and then washed over the paper with an Aqua Painter and ink colour of choice – yes, I let them choose their own ink colour and no Mary, I didn’t stop breathing!!!!.  This is the pink version I made using Blushing Bride.

The second card also featured watercolouring, inspired by the fun I had making last week’s Just Add Ink card.

The peony from the Birthday Blooms stamp set is just stunning and an easy image to splash some colour for beginner or advanced colouring. The front panel of the card is Shimmery White cardstock – a perfect base for watercolouring.  It has a subtle shimmer throughout that’s very special.  But, we couldn’t resist adding a little more shimmer with the clear Wink of Stella pen.

Love the background?  We put the whole card front into the embossing folder, which means the card is textured front & back – I love this effect!!!

The final card (in what turned out to be a very vertical class!) was a quick & easy masculine card using lots of layers to create interesting texture.  Using a variety of plain, patterned and stamped cardstock is a great way to create a card that is effective, but doesn’t take too much time.  I love the watercolour effect of the balloons from the Balloon Builder stamp set – and who doesn’t love a stamp that perfectly coordinates with a punch!!!

I hope you’ll get a chance to try 1 or 3 of these cards at home.  They were such fun to make with a lovely group of ladies.

If you live in the Bunbury area and you’d like to book into a class, you can find the schedule here.  I’d love to have you and help you to make cards like the ones above to take home.  Kelly x
