Jill and I are a bit obsessed with our card making, stamping, scrapping hobby as of late. So this is a way to share it and give us a bit of a push to produce and not just sit and natter when we are together.
I will tell you right now that I am going to have to get better at my photography skills for blogging but here goes.
Since Valentines is right around the corner Jill & I decided to start off with some Valentines cards. Not everyone wants five Valentines cards so a few could be used for anniversaries or even birthdays or for a note card.
Our first card is a funky, happy hearts and buttons card. The image is stamped and then coloured in using Copic markers, blending the larger hearts. We've matted the image and then added buttons for a fun touch.
This card would be a great Valentines for kids, a friend or to be used as a note card for any occasion.
Our second card is our Love card. We have used the Cricut and the Cuttlebug to make this card as well as the Friskers corner heart punch and added some pretty touches with some sheer ribbon and rhinestones. The background is hard to see in the picture but we used a paper with glitter stars.
Our third card is one of my favorites so far. We have used stamps for the images and used the Copic markers again to colour it in. This card is done in really rich jewel tones and we have added gem stones to the ends of the feathes and the swirls in the heart scroll at the top to add a bit of punch.
This card could be used for a variety of occasions as well.
This is our first Happy Birthday card. This card has been stamped with a birthday cake image and Happy Birthday and then heat embossed. It is mounted on really funky sparkle paper.
This is my favorite card so far. This is our "I love you more than....." card. I used these stamps for an anniversary card for my husband, Marc. I substituted the ice cream for a cameo of Mickey Mouse as everyone knows how much I love Mickey and all things Disney.
So that's the line up of cards for the first class. We are holding this class twice - Tuesday, Feb 3, and Thursday, Feb 5, both from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. If you are interested in joining us - everyone is welcome. The cost is $20/person which includes all supplies, refreshments and a door prize. All you need to bring is yourself (and maybe a friend)!
We took a Copic advanced class at "the store" today and can't wait to try some of the new techniques that we learned. We are especially excited about airbrushing with Copics and matching our embelishments to the Copics we are using. Now to get Marc to buy me that compressor..........
