Nothing “Subtle” About This Card Class!

If you’re interested in card making and local to Bunbury, have you considered attenting a card class?

You can find the class schedule here.

This is what the ladies who attended last night made:

Subtles aren’t my usual go to colour collection, but I really love this soft & pretty combination.


We started with a bang – a peek-a-boo butterfly shaker card inspired by a card I found during my class research

{you can see the original by Melissa Bove here}

Most of the ladies had never made a shaker card and they all commented how easy it was.  You can find the basic instructions for a shaker card here.

Boo!
Boo!
The shake!
The shake!

The next project was a tutorial in using the Gift Bag Punch Board.  Once you know how, you’ll never look back, but there is a knack to the steps!

We jazzed it up with the Banner Triple Punch & gorgeous Pool Party DSP (Subtles Paper Stack).

And the final project for the night was a birthday cake card using the Build A Birthday stamp set.

I was so proud of the wonderful creations the ladies made tonight.  It was a delightful way to spend the evening.

If you’d like to attend a card class, I’d love to have you.  It’s a little cosy, a little messy and a lot fun!  Kelly x

Purple Princess Party Pretty!

Just after I made my most recent Frozen castle & princess card using cuts from the Silhouette Design Store, I had a request for a 4th birthday card that was purple & princessy.  Luckily the new designs look great in other colours and the castle doesn’t have to be made of ice.  Happy birthday to the purple princess receiving this card.  Kelly x

Peppa Pig – the Fairy Princess

Every little princess loves to dress up and Peppa Pig is no exception.  My Peppa Pig Punch Art Picture Tutorial is one of my most popular blog posts, with almost 400 views to date!  I’ve decided to add another Peppa to my collection and make a Peppa Pig Fairy Princess card.  The layout is the same as for normal Peppa, but I’ve added wings, a wand and a crown to make her extra special.  The colours are also slightly different as I wanted to experiment with making Peppa out of current Stampin’ Up! colours. [If I had a preference, it would be the retired Pretty in Pink & Regal Rose combination!].

Since I’m still making every Curvy Keepsake Box under the sun, I had a go at a matching Peppa Pig Fairy Princess box.  A bit of a challenge, but cute nonetheless!  Happy 4th Birthday to the party princess – Willow.  Kelly x

Spinning Santa

This one has been ‘spinning around’ as an idea in my head for a while now.  I finally got a chance to sit down and give it a go and it turned out – yay!

I wanted Santa (in some form) to be suspended in the middle of the Circle Card and there he is!  3D but not!  He’s quite easy – have a go.  Kelly x

Just Add Another Baby!

When Alexa was just 4 weeks old, I joined a playgroup and we have met every week every since.  We started with 9 babies & 9 Mummies and ‘baby, we’ve grown’!  The count at present is 12 Mummies & 20 kidlets.  Sometime this month, we will add our 21st little person.

image

To celebrate the impending arrival, we’ve put together a box of goodies.  Good timing for the Just Add Ink challenge this week, which Is “Just Add Baby“.  No pink or blue here, I’ve gone for bright & bold gender neutral colours since we won’t know if baby is a boy or a girl until it joins us (my money is on boy!).  I used the Flashback DSP as my colour palette inspiration – it’s not quite the traditional subtles of a baby card!

image

This present also gave me a reason to try out yet another Pinterest idea – a baby version of the Curvy Keepsake Box.  Soooooooooooooooooooooooo cute!  The original was by Karyn and can be found HERE.

My love affair with the Curvy Keepsake Box continues – hilarious considering I didn’t think I’d use it when I first flicked through the catalogue.  The power of Pinterest!  The inspiration is endless!  Kelly x
