Saturday class cards August 2013


The first two cards above are all the rage at the moment with the easy “sunburst technique”. The gorgeous butterfly card is made using instructions from the fabulous Tami White, using the Stampin’ up Bitty Butterfly punch and Papillon  matching Potpourri Stamp set.


The first card is made by stamping the flowers / leaves in Whisper White craft ink, then using the matching framelits, make a mask with the Big Shot. The mask is placed over the matching flower / leaf and sponging over with classic ink. Very effective.

The third card was sent to me by my lovely up-line Vicki Were, I cased the card and we made it in class last Saturday, using Crushed Curry as the main colour, and sponging all edges. This used the lovely stamp set “Happy Day”.


This set of 3 cards are made using the new Pansy punch and matching Flower Shop stamp set. The original design was by Rhonda Price, she used the Fancy Fan embossing folder, I changed it to using the Woodgrain Embossing folder.


The first card is made using strips of cardstock, layered onto a plain piece of card, this was then run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder. In this case the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder. The ribbon is the new 2013-2015 in colour Ruffle Stretch Trim, with the ribbon stretching, it made it a breeze to attach to the back of the cardstock circle. The clay rose was coloured with Coastal Cabana to match the ribbon.

The next card was cased from Patti Long Bossi and also uses the new Pansy Punch and matching Flower Shop Stamp set.

The last card is loosely cased from Pamela Staples,  and was fun to make. Once again it uses the Pansy Punch and Flower Shop Stamp set. This time the flower was stamped on vellum using Versamark and embossed with White embossing powder. The flower was coloured in on the back side of the vellum with Stampin’ Up! markers.
