7/22/2014 class @CP2

Today we are getting back to basics,
stamping and stenciling.
I love these Penny Black sets, I only wish they included the mask
 from the cuts made to the stencil.
Note to self email Penny Black with this idea!
But have no fear I just hand cut mask's for today's card.

Does anybody know what I used to create the dots and squares on these samples.
Yes this is a test to see if you are reading the details, haha!

Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft mat
ball point glue pen
black edger
I used the following inks and foam blenders,
wild honey
spiced marmalade
barn door
peeled paint
peacock feathers
broken china

That should do it,
have a wonderful week!

7/15/2014 class @CP2

Today we will be celebrating Linda's birthday!

If you haven't noticed, lately I have been on a die cutting kick.
Well today's card has no stamping and it's all die cutting.
A couple of weeks ago Bette showed me a card her daughter sent her.
The front is cut off at the bottom.

Hard to see in the scan but you get the idea.

So this is what I came up with. The front is die cut on an angle,
I used the sparkly butterfly, and die cut sentiment.
 I will bring a sentiment stamp for the inside.

A warm summery card. 
Still playing with other ideas with these dies.

Please bring your basic class kit
ball point glue (die cut sentiment)
larger tip zig glue (glittering the butterfly)
edger if you would like

That should do it,
enjoy your weekend and do something crafty!
