Here are a few more cards my stampers have been making at my "All Occasions 10 Card class". Let me know in the comments section which are your favourites, from either today or yesterday's cards.
Using the tree and leaves from the "Season of Friendship" set, I stuck to a Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery colour combination.
This pretty card relies heavily on the added embellishment of a few Flower Brads from the Subtles Collection to give it that extra "oomphh".
And did you notice the pretty sparkles? That was just the addition of the self-adhesive Rhinestone Jewels to the centres of the flowers.
The "grass" area was just cut free-hand from the striped Certainly Celery Designer paper from the Subtles colour Stack.
This was inspired from a Leadership swap card I received in Nashville last month, from demonstrator Heather Casey of Cabot, PA.
It uses the unusual but striking combination of the new In Color Poppy Parade and the returning Baja Breeze.
And I'm ashamed to say that this is the first time I've ever used my Happy Together stamp set, even through I love the little birdies so much. It was one of the free award stamp sets I received last year maybe? maybe the year before? I'm not sure, but as soon as I saw this card idea I just had to pull it off the shelf to play with. Too many stamps, too little time....NOT! No such thing as too many stamps, right? :)
The scallop square punched pieces were raised off the front using Stampin' Dimensionals, and I added a glimmer brad to the centre of the flower image. Oh yes, and I ran a strip of Baja Breeze through the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch for an added accent.
Final card for today was deceptively easy, letting the Big Shot machine and 2 different dies do all the hard work for us.
Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla go so well together (yum!) and I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder as the main layer.
The trio of butterflies were simultaneously embossed and die-cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die. The die size is 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" so it makes great little pieces to add to your projects. With a few Rhinestone Jewels to jazz it all up, stamp your sentiment and you're all done!
I'll be presenting this class Monday afternoon again and there are 2 spots left if you are interested in attending. Just send me an email and I'll be sure there are enough supplies for you to join in!
