 I hope you get some inspiration from my cards! They were a lot of fun to make and all very quick and easy!

Card Monthly Class - Stampin'Up! Work of Art

Time to give you details about my Card Monthly classes this month. Things have been a bit topsy turvy here as we are in the process of painting the lounge and dining areas, which is where I teach classes! We will be in the kitchen this month!

For Card Monthly in September you will create 5 cards using the Stampin'Up! set "Work of Art". I've created 5 different occasion cards to demonstrate how to get the most out of this set. It always pays to do a mental calculation before purchasing a stamp set to see if you can get maximum use out of it. If you can come up with five different occasions or techniques using the stamp set then it will be a worthwhile addition to your stamp collection.

Here's a teaser of some of the cards for this class.

Class dates - Thursday September 18 at 7.30pm

Giggle Greetings Cards and Blendabilities.

I have had this stamp set - Giggle Greetings 131062, for quite awhile - well before Blendabilities came along and I'd always put off using the set as was unsure on how to colour them using markers only. Well that is no longer a problem now that I have Stampin'Up! Blendabilities markers! Colouring is breeze and so much fun! These cards are so much fun to give and always get a chuckle from the recipient!

The clean and simple matts make the stamped image the card feature and mean a full card set can be created in no time at all.

And here are some alternative colours that I tried out when I was running a Blendabilities class last weekend.
I quite like the dog coloured using Smoky Slate pens. the bowl is coloured using Night of Navy pens.

Thanks for looking!

A Much Better Version of my Original Attempt at a Concertina Fold Card!

As promised here is a much better version of the Concertina Card I posted here. That was the one I made while away on a scrapbooking retreat last month. Here is a far better result in my opinion. What do you think? Using the Basic Grey ink pad makes a huge difference!

I am much happier with this version of the card!
