Awesomely Artistic

Hi Stampers ,
I've had so much fun playing with this set called Awesomely Artistic that I could not wait to share what I've come up with for my October class !
This is my first Centre Step card and I was so pleased with how it turned out . The art piece was cased from Dawn Olchefske 's lovely card you can find here

It's a bit hard to see but I've made the dragonfly all glittery with IRRIDESCENT ICE embossing powder and used Balcberry Bliss ,Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron inks .
The next card uses the Emboss Resist technique and there are many tutorials on Pinterest you can follow .
 Lastly , I wanted to show my ladies how to achieve a Triple Time stamping look but for this card I decided I liked the look of double time stamping . I've used my favourite colour here - Rose Red . If you like the look of these cards contact me for details for this class.

Hi everyone ,
I've been unwell the past few days but stamping always takes my mind off being sick !
So I managed to put together the Scrapbook pages for the next class on the 23 rd August . If you'd like to come along to it you need to book in real soon so that I have time to order more supplies .
These pages wer cased from  Jacque Williams and Barbara Meyer
Here is my take and please note although this could be used as a double layout these pages will go in separate albums because they are of my grandsons , Sam and Connor .

I have used the Schoolhouse DSP in these pages and I just love it ! I have also used a retired stamp set called Every Bunny and I punched out an oval , used my Brushstrokes Background stamp to add stripes to it for the balloon instead of the Easter egg - cool huh ? I also used the small bunny and cut around the Easter egg . I used my Textured Embossing Folders as a stamp for a great effect to fill up the White space .
For Connor' s page I used Ray of Sunshine to stamp and cut out  the sun and sun rays . I also used the tree builder punch to cut the tree and the clouds . I am very happy with how these pages have turned out .
Supplies Used .
Hello Life
Sprinkles of Life
Everybunny ( retired )
Amazing Birthday
Ray of Sunshine
Textured Embossing Folders- Honeycomb , Elegant Dots , Decorative Dots ,Large Polka Dot and Boho Chic
Framelits - Little Letters , Tags and Labels , Hello You .
Punches - Banner , Tree Bulider 1 1/2 " circle.
Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper
Inks and Cardsstock - Tangelo Twist , Garden Geeen , Pool Party , Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point .

Traveler Tunnel Card

Hello again !
Well I still don't feel too great but managed to pull this card together and am very pleased with how it turned out .
This time I've used Traveler and Lovely As  a Tree stamp sets . I hope you like it .

Upcoming September Class

Hi Stampers ,
Today I wanted to share with you an origanal idea I had to pair the Sheltering Tree stamp and Guy Greetings sets with the tunnel card design .
I was driving out to see a client who lives beside a local lake , some may have heard of it , Kangaroo Lake , and as I drove along the road where the jacaranda trees framed the road i I thought how cool it'd be to design a card using this idea . Of course the jacarandas are not in bloom at this moment so I just imagined how they'd look if they were .
This card will be one of three created at my next card class in September 6 th so if you'd like to create it along with me contact me for details . There are vacancies in both the 10 am and 1 pm sessions at the moment but I ask for an RSVP 10 days before the class. The other cards will use the Northern Lights technique and we will also create a pop out swing card with this same set.
Here is my card I hope you like it as much as I do 

Here is another I created using Watercolor Wings

I'm not feeling the best today . Have lost my voice and am suffering from a virus of some description but I really want to create another tunnel card today so if I feel well enough to pull it together I'll post it later on this afternoon .
Here is a sneak peak of next month's cards

Here is a photo of the pop up card described in the previous post !

Watercolour Wings

August Card Class
In this morning's class 3 different cards were created with the Watercolor Wings , three step stamp set  .
The first card uses the layered embossing technique . This card was created using Gold , Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso embossing powders and Cherry Cobbler , Tip Top Taupe and Early Espresso cardstock . It was delicately finished off with the lovely new Tip Top Taupe lace ribbon.

Next we created a pop up card . I altered a tutorial by Julie Davison  - you can find Julie's tutorial here  . I chose to use my circle framelits for this card so I adjusted the measurements so that the card insert was the usual size .
The Pretty Petals DSP stack was used to make a simple card front , embellished with Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon . The butterflies were stamped in Memento Black , Calypso Coral , stamped off and lastly Watermelon Wonder  and then the large butterfly was embellished using White Perfect Accents .

The last card was a simple card again using the Pretty Petals DSP stack , on sale in weekly deals until Tuesday . The banners were created using the banner punch . The butterfly was stamped using Marina Mist , Island Indgo and Pacific Point . It was then embellished with the Brights sequin assortment.

My group of ladies can't wait until next month when we'll be focussing on the Sheltering Tree stamp set and creating a tunnel card , a pop out swing card and a Northern Lights card . Here is a sneak peak .

I will be placing my pre order for the Holiday Catalogue on Tuesday and my first Christmas class will be on the 3 rd of September which is a Thursday . I will post more details soon and bookings will be gratefully accepted now .
That's it for me tonight so remember to hug the ones you love because none of us are promised tomorrow 😀
