last months village lesson card

IMG_7712 (Medium)Today as I am finishing off the preparation for next weeks village lesson, I thought I would show you what the ladies made last lesson. This one is the first, and tomorrow I will post the other two cards.The pretty white background paper is a specialty paper, already embossed, and with a lovely shine to it, and the dies ( for the leaves and the border were from kaisercraft. the bird is my trusty stampin up bird punch,and the sentiment is Stampin up Curly cute stamp.Just a bit of ribbon to finish.Roast in the oven for lunch, housework done and now before I sort out the vegatables for steaming I must pop out and wash my car which is lost under a layer of red dust! Til tomorrow….

A hodge Podge of stampin Up!

Here is a card I designed for a previous village lesson, using mainly stampin Up products. The embossing folder is Couture Creations Cottage florals, and the rest of the products used are all stampin Up – Poppy Parade, so saffron, whisper white, old olive and certaianly celery cardstock,Decorative labels punch, bird punch, Four frames stamp set, language of friendship stamp set ,little leaves die, and a flower punch. I added liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers.What I like about this card is the fact that once I had stamped the bird, it cut out perfectly with the punch, and the pattern lifts it. I had a lovely morning over at paper Flourish setting up our August lesson – I love it when a plan falls into place and I am looking farward to teaching that class! Now, back in the craft room I am working on Fathers day cards, only another dozen or so to go… Til tomorrow….

More English Rose

Here are the other two cards i made while I had the Kaisercraft English Rose paper out. I used Stampin Up cardstock ( pink Piroutte) for the bases, and my Stampin Up bird punch, Martha Stewart lace doily punch, prima flowers, hand rolled flowers, ribbon and bling. Settling back into work, what a rude shock to the system! Many books in the stockroom still in boxes, but I have been given some help, so we should be caught up by next week! Til tomorrow….

Blossom Party

Todays card uses Graphic 45 Once upon a springtime patterned papers, stampin up bird punch, and stampin up sizzix dies – leaves and Blossom Party. I also used bazzil cardstock, and a big rhinestone brad, and some lace. I had a totally different card in mind when I started this one, but it kind of took over!Tonight will be some baby cards to go in the market boxes. Til tomorrow…
