Week 3 Class Cards

Card number 1 was something I'd been requested to teach a while ago. It's a Bookatrix card made using the Bookatrix board from the Glitter Girls in the UK. I just love these cards, especially for those special occasions (weddings, engagements, 21st birthdays). They really are something extra special and honestly are quite quick and easy to make.

For the card I've used Bazzill Basics cardstock in white and two shades of purple and then the final layer is vellum. I finished the edges off with Starform stickers in gold.

On the right side is a gold foil scalloped oval from Spellbinders small scalloped ovals. Decorated with roses and a blossom from Green Tara.

On the left side is a Kanban Sentiments Topper

 Card number two was inspired by a card I received at Christmas from one of my students.

For this card I've used Bazzill Basics cardstock in a pale grey and coal. I've then used Crevat DS paper from  Kaisercrafts After Five range.

I used double sided satin ribbon for accents and a label from Spellbinders with a Hero Arts stamp.

The flower is made using Bazzill Basics coal cardstock with a Spellbinders small scalloped circle. The concertina flower is made using Kaisercrafts Tuxedo from the After Five range.

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.
