“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 20th March 2014


At Thursday’s “Create With Kathe” craft class, we had a new crafter attend, the gorgeous Sue.
We had an afternoon filled with giggles, as Bev and Kay were also able to come along and enjoy the fun!
This week we made two cards, the second card I believed would be the harder of the two to make, but these awesome ladies had the second card done and dusted within 30 minutes!

The first card is case’d by a card that I made on Tuesday with my Tutor and Mentor Jacque, who was in town for the day.


I adapted it, as I did not own {yet – they are in my latest Stampin’ Up! order!} the SU Heart Framelits, instead I switched the Hearts out for the Labels Collection Framelits.

The flower was the first item to be made, first punching 3x Blossom Punch in “Blushing Bride”, 2x Pansy Punch in “Blushing Bride” and 2x Pansy Punch in “Always Artichoke”.
The flowers were then embossed with the “Square Lattice” embossing folder. The flower petals were curled with the Bone Folder, then braded with a Candy Dots Brad Base, with a Pearl to finish off the centre.
The flowers were then spritzed with the Smooch Spritz, and then left to dry.
Once dry I then sponged the tips of the petals in “Sahara Sand”.
The background stamp which is heat embossed in Black, is my favourite stamp, the “Hardwood” stamp form the Occasions Brochure, available till 30th June 2014.
And I had to break out my new “Little Leaves Sizzlits”, and at only $11.50, I don’t know why I hadn't purchased these before!!!
These perfectly framed the flower, above the sentiment…
“Sending Good Thoughts Your Way’ is from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set, and is stamped in “Always Artichoke” on Naturals White cardstock.
The inside message first stamped in “Blushing Bride” {for the background}, then with “Always Artichoke” are the words “Thank You You’re The Best” from “Hello, Lovely” stamp set.
Finished off with a sweet little heart in Blushing Bride cardstock and an extra  
Pearl, and this card is complete.


The second card we made, tested the ladies, as they learnt some new techniques along the way …



The card base is Naturals White, with an overlay off the Sale-A-Bration “Sweet Sorbet” Designer Series Paper, and Coastal Cabana on the inside of the card.
The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch is used to create the fancy closing of the card, which is tied with Ruffled Stretch Trim in Coastal Cabana.
The sentiment is from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set and hand coloured with Stampin’ Markers in Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Old Olive.   Stamped on Naturals White and adhered to the Coastal Cabana cardstock, and then placed on Dimensionals.


A window is cut with the Circles Collection Framelits, and peaking through the {Circular} window is the cutest hand painted flower!
The background of the card is first stamped in graduating colours of Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay, using the gorgeous watermark stamp from the “Happy Watercolor” stamp set.
From that same stamp set, the Pansy is stamped in Black StazOn, before starting to colour the Pansy, using the end of a pencil and Versamark, make 3 little round splotches in the centre of the flower, then cover in Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
Hand colour with a Blender Pen and the Pacific Point stamp pad.  
After colouring with the Blender Pen, add 3 little Pearls to the centre of the Pansy.
To finish the card, using the Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder, add the cute little circles to the corner of the card, from the “Happy Watercolor” stamp set.
Wah lah, card done!
