Sue Wilson Lift Your Spirits

Last card from my new die class that I held on Tuesday, it is being repeated on the Saturday 27th January.

I created the cloud effect by using the Stitched Hills and Clouds did set. I took one of the cloud dies and run it through on some scrap card to create a mask and then using Cosmic Shimmer Cloud Ink Clear Day and a smoothie blended the ink over the mask.

The hot air balloon has been cut out of some scraps of Foundation card and the grass has been created using the Hill dies from the Stitched set. The sentiment die is also in the set. I cut down the front of a 5″ square card blank to make a more 3d style card.

Hope you like it, back tomorrow night with a card from Kerry from her Woodware class.

Young At Heart Class

The cards today are from my Young At Heart class for a couple of weeks ago.  First one uses a mask from That Special Touch called Nordic Christmas together with one of the Sue Wilson Dies Here Comes Santa Snow Globe Scene. The mask has been coloured with Creative Expressions Cloud Chalk ink Misty Grey. I filled the shaker cup with Creative Expressions Glitter Jewels Iced Snow. Mark Richards Glitter Domes were added in the corners and the sentiment is from Creative Expressions Santa Sentiments.

Next one uses a stamp set from Hunkydory called Snowy Snow Globe. The Snow acetate behind is also from Hunkydory and comes in a A4 pack. I used a Creative Expressions Cloud ink Clear Day around the edges and the snow was created with the Glitter Jewels as used in the first card. The colouring was done with some Promarkers. Sentiments are in the stamp set and I used Stazon Ink for the one on the acetate.

Last one for today and probably my favourite because I love using Fluffy Stuff. The stamp is from Craft UK and is called Santa and Pals (those stamps are on a Buy 2 get 1 free at moment) and its coloured with Promarkers. I used Woodware Fluffy stuff in White on his moustache and bobble, which you apply and then heat with a heat gun.  I stamped the image twice and then cut out the moustache and nose to create a 3D effect but you don’t have to. The background was created using a sponge and some of the Cloud ink I used for the second card.  The little snowflake stamp was stamped with Silver pigment ink and is in the Santa Sentiments stamp set. I also used the Ho Ho Ho and Santa Claus is coming to town stamps from the same set. Finally I added some Glamour Dust for a little twinkle on the snowflakes and a White gel pen for detail on his hat and nose.

This class is being repeated on Saturday 21st October at 2.00pm . Have a fab weekend and hopefully you can get a chance to craft.

Quick and easy cards

The cards today are from my class last week. The idea was to make some quick and easy cards that could be mass produced if you have a lot to make this Christmas.

First one uses a Sue Wilson die from this years release called Lace Snowflake. I die cut the middle hexagon in Foundations Blue pearl cardstock and then added the snowflake die in the middle of the other hexagon to sit on top. Finished off with a little gem in the middle and a sentiment from Woodware A Heartfelt Christmas stamp set.

 

The second card for today uses the Woodware Classic Baubles stamp set and has been just stamped in Gold pigment ink and then the sentiment from the new Woodware set A Christmas Cheer stamped on top in Black ink. A stamping tool is brilliant for this large stamp. Cut all your card to size, ink and stamp all of them in Gold, change stamp to the sentiment one and position where you want it. Ink in Black then stamp all of them again. You will end up it a lot of card fronts done in no time at all. I finished off by adding some Black pearls from Mark Richards in the centres and matted on Black card. You could of course do different colours and change it up if you have more time by stamping in Black ink and cutting out the baubles from some other cardstock ( I used Foundations Gold Pearl) then paper piecing them back on. You could do flat if you are worried about postage or on foam pads as I have done. Stamping and embossing with some Wow powders would look gorgeous as well.

That’s all for today, will pop back tomorrow with the other card I made for this class.
