Trevor is now Bronze 3

This is a card I made for one of my team Trevor. He has recently promoted to Bronze 3 and has a lady called Jo in his team.

Congratulations Trevor

The inspiration for this card came from yesterday's post and I just turned the layout and added some linen thread and a different greeting.

French Foliage

Gosh I can't believe I haven't posted this week. I have been busy and then when I went to take some photo's the camera needed recharging! anyway photo's now taken and I have a few spare minutes wilst tea is cooking. Thursday's are a quick turn around for us...Hannah finishes school at 4.30 and then we have guides at six and I have a class at 7.30!

I overlooked this stamp set in the catalogue for a few months, but having seen the possibilities I so looove it....

Last week I had a work shop for a lovely lady called Bev, who asked for anything but the "big shot". Bev's group of ladies take it in turn to host a party every few months or so, and are seasoned crafters so they need a bit of a wow!!

I demonstrated the flower card we made at my last Friday class and everyone had a go at making the flower...and then this is the card we made.

The lovely effect for the leaves comes from using a baby wipe and the re-inkers which we can now buy for £2.75 each. the effect is stunning isn't it.

Ladies I am glad you enjoyed the morning and I will see you again in June.

I held a workshop recently for a lady called Mo, and she has now joined the Stampin'UP! family. So welcome to my team Mo.....

I made her this card, which will hopefully arrive with her starter kit at the end of the week.

At Mo's workshop we used the butterfly embosslits, so with this card I combined them togther with a similiar layout that I have been using this month.

Diamond wedding Anniversary card

I made this card for my mum and dad to give to their friends later on this month. I was really pleased with the result and used the same layout as with a previous card of mine. The flourish image is from Elementary Elegance and was heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The mocha morning papers give the card a luxury feel.
The numbers were cut out using the big shot and then coated with Crystal effects.

Happy Birthday

Donna recently joined by team of caro's stampers and I sent her this card for her birthday and to welcome her to Stampin'UP!

I know she loves the heat embossing, so I decided to give the melon mambo embossing powder a try, isn't it striking.

I hope you had a lovely day Donna XXX

Friday Class project 1

Last Friday evening so my Friday 2 card class at Chapel Hay Methodist Church.

At this class you make 2 detailed cards and some times a bonus project! I love the challenge of designing this class as it's for a smaller number of people, but I can incorporate lots more in to it than in my Monday class.

Here is our first card. (completely in my own design)

I was so pleased with the finished project. One of my favourite colour combinations of Rose Red, So saffron and Wild Wasabi. I have managed to use the sale-a-bration papers too! This card has lots of layers and distressing and a little bit of cutting out! sorry Ruth.

Right I need to go and do some planning for future events now but I will be back tomorrow with our second project. X

Monday Class Card 5 and 6

Here are the last two cards of the evening. It was a really enjoyable class and the larger room we were able to have made the evening much more fun. It was lovely to be able to walk round and sit with my ladies on their table and have a chat whilst they were crafting.

Card 5

This card used the medallion background stamp. Isn't it lovely.

Card 6

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the cards we made this month at class. Our next is Monday the 2nd April so if you would like to join us please let me know.
