Long Awaited Class

Firstly, a big thank you to 'my ladies' for jumping at the chance to come to my latest class. The response was overwhelming, especially since my lst class was months and months ago.

We started the night with some 3D projects that I have been chomping at the bit to have the ladies try. Firstly, a standing calender:

I've had this idea since I received one of these calendars from my talented upline, Diane Barnes from Colour Me Happy. Here is the link to Di's instructions on how to make them. I used the same fold concept but I changed the dimensions.

I used a Basic Grey card base, Pretty in Pink cardstock and some Bashful Blue paper, Label Collection Framelits, and little calendars I found online. The butterflies were stamped on Whisper White card using Pretty in Pink ink, and cut with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. They were embellished with adhesive pearls.

As I was preparing the calendar kits for the class, I made some extra kits so that Mia's friends can each make one at her birthday party next month.

The second project was this little handbag, made using the Petite Purse Die:

The kits for this project were in different colours but the one you see here was made with a So Saffron card base and So Saffron paper. The ladies made their own carnation using the new little Scallop Circle Punch. The carnation was embellished and held together with a gold brad. The leaves were cut with the Double Step Bird Punch. The little tag was stamped In Lucky Limeade with one of the stamps from the Sale-a-Bration set, Pretty Petites and punched out with the matching Petite Curly Lanel Punch. The tiny flower was punched from Pretty in Pink cardstock using a punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

The third project was a simple and serene sympathy card featuring the Framelits Window Frame Dies and matching Festive Paper Piercing Pack:

The base is Whisper White and features an image and sentiment are from the Love & Sympathy stamp set . Ink colours used were Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade and basic Black.

The final project of the night was this cute 'get well' card featuring the new Oh, Whale stamp set:

How cute is this little guy? He was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, cut out and propped onto the card using foam dots. He has Pool Party twine tied around his tail. The Tempting Turquoise waves were created using a circle punch. So, so simple. Love it!

Thanks for visiting my Blog. I hope you found something to inspire you. Feel free to leave a comment.

Catch you all soon.
Andrea :)

This is a really sweet card. I love how you offset the waves and the twine on the tail :)
