In Class - December 2013

This month's class was all about colouring!  A friend loaned me her For the Birds stamp set which has a variety of cute images that are just perfect for showcasing colouring techniques.

This first project used blender pens and our Classic Stampin' Ink Pads as the colouring medium.  My tip for picking colours to use in colouring-in is to find a pretty designer series paper (DSP) pattern and match in with that colour pallette.  The DSP chosen for this card is from a now retired paper pack called Birds of a Feather . The wagon was stamped onto the Raspberry Ripple cardstock and then cut out and pasted in place to achieve that strong, bold, even finish.

We used the Birds of a Feather DSP again for card two with the same blender pen colouring technique.  This time however, we deviated from the standard A6 card design and played with the new Stampin' Up! Circle Thinlet die to create this fun flip card.  Below is the card when opened.

 For our third project we tried our hand at some water painting.  Now i am not by any means a painter, or an artist by traditional definition, but the Stampin' Up! tools make it so easy and fun to colour!  In card three we used water colour paper and aqua painters to decorate the imagery in this card.

We usually only create three projects but I wanted to give my participants a little something extra in light of Christmas being just around the corner.  So we also made this little gift tag too.

Next class is pencilled in for the 11th of January.  We will practice a little more colouring in this upcoming class.  If you are interested in attending or finding our more information please don't hesitate to contact me!

  1. Jenn - I love all 4 of your adorable watercolored projects. You do a great job. I really like the cute baker's twine embellishment with the button or punched pieces. I'll be trying that and maybe casing your cards. Love the paper pieced wagon too. TFS... Barb
