In Class - March 2014

I had a special request to feature Core'dinations in this month's class.  This thick cardstock has a canvas texture on one side and is smooth on the other.  The real fun comes from sanding, tearing or distressing the product to reveal a monochromatic colour inside.

In this first card we used the Early Espresso colour, embossed with the Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and sanded to reveal the natural lighter tone beneath.

The butterfly is from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set and is coloured with blender pens in Pacific Point and Bashful Blue tones.

In the second project, we used a strip of Gumball Green Core-dinations.  This time embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sanding of the Core-dinations panel subtly highlights the honeycomb lines. The colours worked in perfectly with the Watercolour Wonder designer series paper (DSP) from the current Occasions catalogue.

The sentiment comes from the Million and One Stamp set.  I love it's florish!  It has been heat embossed in black on top of the DSP to help it stand strong against the floral backdrop.

The third project we created was a Sympathy themed card.  Last month, by special request, we created a card in this theme that had a decidedly feminine feel.  I wanted to give participants a chance to create another that might be suitable for either gender.

This project features the Fine Feathers Stamp Set.  The colour pallette is warm neutral browns, very vanilla and a pop of Soft Sky blue.  I can't take credit for this design.  It is rare that I CASE a card so closely but I fell in love when I saw Nadine Weiner's original project and thought it was just perfect as is.

Our next full class is scheduled for May 31st. Full details to be released in my April e-newsletter later this week. To secure your place please email me with your booking as soon as possible.
