A few weeks ago I had a class booked in with a group of regulars and we made the cards shown here today. We made one that was CASED straight from the Stampin’ Up! idea book and catalogue and the other was using my free stamp set pick from my salebration sales. The idea book and catalogue is a fabulous resource and one demonstrators and customers use over and over again. It provides fabulous colour combinations (some, like this one you would never think of), fantastic design ideas that are easily transformed for whatever products you have on hand. It also provides great and usually easy designs that you can simply copy like we did as well as tons of ideas for embellishments and scrapbooking. With a new catalogue due to start here in Australia in September I thought it would be a great idea to have a class early in September to launch the new catalogue and teach you some of the great things you can do with the catalogue. There will of course be make and takes, using new and existing product and you will get your own copy of the catalogue to take away as well as the chance to take advantage of some great offers that I will have for you for the night. This promises to be a relaxed evening of stamping, catalogue flicking, good food and great company………e-mail me if you want to get in quick! The date will be formally released in the next couple of weeks (probably a Friday night) but because of my limited space here, will be for a limited number of attendees……we are after an intimate, fun night. E-mail me to register interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now back to the card…LOL…..a beautiful bashful blue, certainly celery and soft suede card using the wordplay stamp set and the big shot, embossing folder and sizzlet die. There is a gorgeous little rhinestone brad on the ring in the sentiment. I have been wanting to make this one forever…..and it is as cute in real life as it appears in the catalogue.
The other card is one I made using sahara sand cardstock, once again some embossing folders and sizzlets appear and of course a mini library clip. I am addicted to these and if they retire….watch out, I’ll be racing to buy them all up before they go!!
