Today was my monthly class and my theme was "Everything Floral". Seven fun ladies stamped, embossed, coloured and laughed lots whilst making the 3 cards for the afternoon.
Here is my table all set up ready to go...
The first is always the easiest to get them all started. Using the "Petal Promenade" Designer Series Paper. A real favourite of mine and will be very sad to see this go early in June to make way for more beautiful Designer Series Papers coming in the new Annual Catalogue 😉 Just a greeting from the "Stitched All Around" Stamp Set stamped in the middle and the little edging poking out at the bottom is from the "Flourish Thinlits" Dies. Popped up on the Whisper White Cardbase with Stampin' Dimensionals and you are all done!
The second card is called a Fun Fold Buckle Card and would like to Thank Terri Gaines for this inspiration. Very effective and yet, still quite easy card to put together
The last card is using the "Country Floral" Embossing Folder which is not available at this point in time but will be from June 3rd when our new 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue begins. Also the "Climbing Roses" Stamp Set
The floral stamp is inked with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder and then coloured with Stampin' Blends. It is all quiet around the table with the colouring concentration.
I created a template to add to the embossing folder which, when run through the Big Shot, only embossed around the floral stamp leaving the top un-embossed.
The greeting is from the "Humming Along" Stamp Set, which is retiring soon so if you like this one grab it quickly, and punched out with the "Story Label" Punch also available in the new upcoming Annual Catalogue.
Here are all most of the class creations bar one which Gail was still working on...
And here is Gail's finished masterpiece 😍
Lots of laughs during the course of the afternoon, especially when Ann brought out her "small" roll of dimensional tape 😲 She certainly will not run out in a big hurry!!!
Thanks everyone. I had a ton of fun, yet again. Let's do it all again next month
My next class in May I will have a go at the Colouring Tissue Paper Technique. I have already mentioned to the ladies not to wear white to next month's class 😆😆😆
