Week 2 class cards

I know I've been slack at updating the blog the last couple of weeks but I'll try to get it up to date this week. I had a nasty toothache last week and it made it hard for me to get anything done. i just couldn't concentrate, but thankfully it's gone now so I can try to catch up.

Firstly here are the cards we made in our second week of classes.

The first is a vintage card using  Madison Avenue papers from My Mind's Eye.

I've used Pretty Dress Shop and Sisters Lace on this card for the background and the punched strips down the side. These strips were punched with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch.

The 3D is a Reddy Die Cut and I've used girlfriends J'Adore paper for the distressed piece of script behind the 3D.

The locket is from Spellbinders "Timeless Heritage "

Card Number Two was also made using Madison Avenue Papers from My  Minds Eye.
My inspiration here was two cards made using the same papers but in totally different styles.

For this card I've used Pretty Dress Shop and Sisters Lace again and Girlfriends J'Adore but the reverse side this time for the background.

 I've used Spellbinders Labels 16 for the centrepiece of the card and Just Rite stamps Nested Sentiments All Occasions.

I added ribbon behind the sentiment and then added 3 pearls for a bit of "bling".

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.
Dorothy's card is simply elega…
