March Card Making Class

On 7 March, I held my second card making class at the local Community Center (Springdale) & it was even more fun than the first one, cos I wasn't so nervous! This time I decided to show a couple of different cards for inspiration & take a bunch of different Designer Series Paper, matching inks & cardstocks & a bunch of stamps & matching dies & just let the girls go to town! It was certainly a lot easier for me, but I think I gave a few too many options as it took a while for everyone to get started. We'll try for a happy medium next month!

Here are the four cards I had as inspiration:

The metallic purple cardstock & white, gold & black washi tape are from my stash. I have also used:

On the first card: 
  • Whisper White cardstock, It's my Party Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • Party with Cake stamp set
  • Banners framelits/dies, Banner Triple & Washi Label Punches
  • Mint Macaron & Melon Mambo inks 
  • Melon Mambo/Black Baker's Twine & Rhinestones 
 On the second card: 
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • Number of Years & Papillion Potpourri stamp sets & Blushing Bride ink
  • Floral Frames & Large Numbers framelits/dies, Itty Bitty Butterfly & Elegant Butterfly Punches
  • Lovely Lace Embossing Folder 
  • Rhinestones & Wink of Stella (on the number 1)

This is the inside of the first card in the above picture. I have used the Party Pop Up Dies & Whisper White cardstock. Behind it is a black print layer of It's My Party DSP.

Here we have:

On the first card
  • Oh Hello stamp set & Silver Glitter Tape - SAB items - only available until 31 March! 
  • Butterfly paperclip & burlap with lace trim from my stash 
  • Garden Green & Whisper White cardstock, & Love Blossoms DSP
  • Arrows Embossing Folder & Blushing Bride Ink
On the second card
  • Botanical Gardens DSP - SAB item - only available until 31 March!  
  • Bloomin Love stamp set & Rose Wonder dies
  • Love Blossoms DSP & Rose Red ink
  • Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake & Gold Foil cardstocks
  • Decorative Label Punch
So I took along all those goodies, plus a few extras eg Dimensionals, Tear & Tape adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot & Precision Plate, Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist & some extra cardstock.

And here's what the girls came up with:

Carol's Creations:

The first card:
  • Blackberry Bliss & Rose Red cardstock on a Whisper White base 
  • Decorative Dots embossing folder 
  • Rose Wonder thinlit on Love Blossoms DSP  
The second card:
  • Hello Honey cardstock base layered with Blackberry Bliss
  • Wildflower Fields DSP  - SAB item - only available until 31 March! 
  • Hello Honey cardstock embossed with the Decorative Dots & punched with the Elegant Butterfly

Irene's creations:

The first card:
  • Whisper White cardstock base layered with Rose Red cardstock & Love Blossoms DSP 
  • Rose Wonder small rose thinlit cut out from Whisper White & Rose Red layered
  • Rose Wonder label thinlit stamped with Rose Red ink, sentiment from the Rose Garden Stamp Set 
The second card:
  • Hello Honey cardstock base with Whisper White banner 
  • It's My Party DSP & Banner Triple Punch 
  • Mint Macaron Candy Dots 
  • Party with Cake stamp set & Hello Honey Ink

This is the inside of Irene's second card, where she has used the Party Pop Up thinlits with Whisper White cardstock & a layer of It's My Party DSP underneath.

We also had Mary create two lovely cards in our class, but I forgot to take photos of them! Both of her card bases were Whisper White. One had a layer of Lost Lagoon cardstock with the Bloomin Heart thinlit cut out on top with a Crumb Cake design from the Love Blossoms DSP. The other card had a layers of Blackberry Bliss and colourful chevron type design from the Wildflower fields DSP & a small rose from the Rose Wonder thinlits in Hello Honey.

All of the ladies made lovely cards! I'm so happy to be sharing my goodies around & making some people smile, the ladies who make the cards & the lucky people who receive them. Stay tuned for next month's cards - we were talking about doing some fun fold cards & some heat emboss/watercolouring cards, so we'll see what I can come up with! It should be fun!!
