8/28/2012 class @CP2

This weeks card we are working with an acetate window.
In the past we have done this with circles or various shapes cut
and the acetate positioned behind the opening.
I was watching a video in which Jennifer McGuire uses a piece of decorative acetate.
See the video below, hopefully it works, haha!
So this was the inspiration for this card, the white swirls is where the acetate panel is.
I do own the die that Jennifer makes the felt flower with
and one day we will also be playing with that!
Include in your class kit
temporary adhesive
FYI,  I used
distress inks, broken china & peeled paint with a foam blending tool
chipped sapphire for the edges
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you on Tuesday!

About a year ago or so I just had to have this Tim Holtz/sizzix die and have yet to use it.
My goal this week was to make a card utilizing the rosette.

Killing time on pintrest or looking for inspiration ... 
I came across a pin by Liane, wa la I was inspired!
Here is this weeks card. Thank you Liane!
Make sure you have included in your class kit

Today's technique is water stamping,
we have done this before but I really like the results,
there are so many possibilities!

Kept it simple as far as embellishments go.
 May add a gold peel off sentiment when I decide the occasion.

8/7/2012 class @CP2

Friday afternoon and the sample is done and the class is all prepped ...
decided Sami & I will go for pedicures and out to dinner *Ü*
Tuesday,s technique is call faux chalk board or black magic depending on what site you are reading.
There are two ways to do this, one is with chalks and the other is colored pencils. So of course I had to try both. I do have a preference but I will bring everything so you can choose your medium.

Please include in your class kit
stamping foam or mouse pad (for background stamp)
gold edger, pen or pad
See you Tuesday, enjoy your weekend!
