Pretty Flowers Photoplay Class

Hi Angels!

We have finally made it to the final pictures for the Scrapbook & Cards Today Cardmaking Event from last weekend.

Photoplay designed an exclusive flower set for the event and I made these pretty floral cards.

We added swashes of watercolor to some watercolor paper & diecut several flowers from the colors we chose. I also die cut flowers out of patterned & solid cardstock scraps and added stamped centers & words. Since I had several extra watercolor flowers, I opted to make my last card with them instead of stamping a background. I think the black & white polka dots sets them off nicely.

All the classes were so much fun and I can’t wait for the October event.

In the end I created 40 cards from the kits & sponsor products. Here’s a look at all of them together.

These cards are sure to bring lots of smiles when I send them out.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We are enjoying an evening with our granddaughters.

Hummingbird Beauty

Hi Angels!

I had a quick mini class today recreating the bunny card from a week or so ago. Lots of fun visiting.

Hero Arts taught us a class on Sunday with the Color Layering Hummingbird set & their Reactive Ink.

They all came out so different & beautiful. The first card we did a “batik” to the background, very easy. The second card we just did a direct to paper background and the final card is a watercolor wash after smooshing the ink on some acetate. The bird & flower on the final card are watercolored with the ink too. Inks that work in a variety of ways keep creating interesting.

One more class to share from last weekend’s event.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fun Birthday Card with Cathy Z

Hi Angels!

I have officially completed all my cards from the weekend & got a bit of organizing done today too.

Our first class on Sunday morning was with Cathy Zielske and Your Next Stamp with a fun birthday set. I had stamped/embossed a few extra images so decided to make a double set.

These cards feature alcohol ink markers & color blending with distress oxides. Love clean & simple design. I added a bit more texture with some embossing folders.

Just a couple more classes to post. I guess I’d better get busy on some new projects.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Bright Day

Hi Angels!

I’ve been laying low most of the day with a migraine due to the weather going through but I still got some organizing done in the studio and prep work for my weekend classes.

While I was prepping with the Scrapbook & Cards Today Rainbow stamp & die set exclusive to our weekend, I made this card.

We received the Heidi Swapp Favorite Things 6 x 6 paper pad with our sponsor goodies, so I pulled the background paper from that pad. I die cut out a variety of the 2 smallest bows from the rainbow dies to create the border & pulled the sentiment from the matching stamp set.

Easy and sure to bring a smile when received.

Thanks for popping in!
