Week 9

Card 1 - Embossed Embroidery

It has been quite some time since we did any embroidery cards in class so I thought it was about time to change that. In fact it had been quite a while since a lot of us had done any embroidery and it was quite a challenge...we were all a bit rusty I think.  The 3D is from Card Deco and comes in a variety of colours on the sheet.

The embroidery was quite detailed and time consuming but a beautiful design.

Underneath the 3D of flowers is an embossed section. This was done using a Marianne Designs  open passe-partout template and the Cuttlebug.

I finished it off with a single bow and a tag using a Starform sticker for the greeting.

Card 2 - Brick Wall by Jenelle

Jenelled designed this card for class and it's another beauty. The card is all Bazzill Basics in Brown and French Vanilla. The image was stamped, cut and inked and then pieced together to form the brick wall design.

String was wrapped around the top layer and tied with a small tag attached.

A very simple easy design and yet a challenging card because of all the pieces and accurate measurements.
I do apologize but I can't recall the brand or name of the stamps used.

Thanks for stopping by

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…
