Make themed / Father's Day Class

What a fun filled day of classes today. . Three male themed cards were created amongst a lot of laughter, jokes and fun ! I wonder if Betty will come to the next class hey Coral ! Lol !
 The first card was a Z fold card totally cased from Dawn Griffiths here
This is such a great card and really quite easily put together . It was my first attempt at a Z fold  card and everyone loved how it turned out . The stamp set used was One Wild Ride .
I hope my ladies are well rested and ready for Scrap booking tomorrow afternoon ! What a busy week it's been ! 😀

Next was a nautical themed card using Seaside  Shore and this card was cased from Patty Bennet here
I love how Patty showed how to stamp right onto the DSP and create a gorgeous card ! So fun and so clever !
For the last card I wanted my ladies to colour using blender pens because we've yet to do that in class . The boots from the set called Country Livin ' were stamped in Basic Gray ink and coloured with blender pens and Crumb Cake re inkers . Layering circle dies were used to cut out the boots and the matt for the boots .

Thoughtful Branches for my beginners . 😀

My beginners were up for a challenge this week ! I wanted to showcase the Thoughtful Branches bundle because it is only available until the end if this month . I wanted my ladies to see how awesome it is ! It was their first try with the Big Shot and they used it to dry emboss and die cut and created some fantastic cards . They did , however , mention they were exhausted and would require a Nanna nap afterwards !
In all seriousness they all coped extremely well and were asking what date our next class will be . It was decided it'd be on the 13 th and 15 th of September , due to the school holidays . If you would like to attend one of my classes just let me know so I can prepare a kit for you . For my regular classes ladies , I forgot to mention , if you bring a friend new to me  you will get your next class free - you must let me know so that I have enough kits ready though .
 These are the cards we created amongst  a lot of fun and laughter .

For my homework later that evening , even though totally exhausted , I created this card that I had already demonstrated the sponging on by sponging the bottom section in Dapper Denim ink and stamping the bridge image from a set I had yet to use , Wherever You Go . I was stoked with the result and loooovee this card ! We used the new sponge brayers for thus technique ! Fun !

Wow ! What a great day stamping today ! Eight ladies joined me to create three cards using the Thoughful Branches bundle . They loved it so much and almost all attendees purchased this great bundle which is only available for purchase until 31 st August . Contact me to learn more  . 
The first card created uses Rich Razzleberry  , Crumb Cake , Wild Wasabi , Whisper White and Sweet Sugar Plum cardstock , S. Sugar Plum , Rich Razzleberry and White Craft ink . The Crumb Cake piece was embossed using the Brick Wall TEF and then a White craft ink pad was dragged across it to give a rendered effect . The retired emboss resist type DSP was coloured with a sponge roller and S. S Plum ink . The flower was given a Wink Of Stella to give it a nice finish .

We also created a cute apple tree using Real Red and Old Olive this time . To save time I punched out the apples with the Tree Bulider punch - there is a die in the set but the punch  was just that bit quicker .Doesn't it look gorgeous ?  Such a versatile set !

 Lastly we did a little sponging and only die cut some leaves . I saw a similar card somewhere but I'm unable to find it now to give credit so if it was yours give me a shout out and I'll certainly give credit because I didn't change much at all it was so lovely.  Thankyou 😀😀😀
We used the Petal Burst TEF which is fast becoming a favourite of mine . Then the trees were simply stamped in Basic Black Archival and sponged using Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy . Some silver glimmer leaves , retired Pool Party glimmer ribbon and some silver thread finished this card off beautifully .

I'll be running a male themed class on Saturday 20 th August and have had such a great response I will be having a morning and an afternoon class that day . Contact me if you're keen to get those Father's Day or guys birthday cards sorted ! Beginners most welcome .
Everyone was delighted to also be taking home a Holiday Catalogue .  Contact me to get yours now . This catalogue goes live on 1 st September .
Here I am reading mine which arrived on Friday ! Lol !
