“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 20th March 2014


Well Thursday’s class seems so long ago now…
Since then I have attended a Scrapbook Layout Class with Jacque form Auckland, this was all day Saturday 9.30am till 5pm, and I was completely shattered afterwards.
Yesterday (Sunday) I was in so much pain, I could hardly move.
Tonight {Monday 31st March} I taught at Women Connecting my Noah’s Ark Double Slider card, which I will post about tomorrow.
Tonight was also the cut off date for the Stampin’ U! Sale-A-Bration promotion, I placed an order, and 5 minutes later, someone else sent an order in via email – grrrrrr!!!
I did quite well though, what with my own order, the Hostess Reward and the Sale- A-Bration rewards, this order, I received $541.20 worth of products, and the difference to pay for this order was $81.47 … not bad eh?!!!
Gotta say, I ♥ Stampin’ Up!

For Thursday’s class, we made an Easter Bunny "Punch Art" Easter Egg Box, and a Gift Card Holder …




Easter Bunny "Punch Art" Easter Egg Box

I adapted the pattern for the Card In A Box, and used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch for the closure.


The cardstock was “Naturals White” and stamped with the “Hardwood” stamp, using a masking technique, as the top of the box is stamped randomly with the “Petal Parade” {Sale-A-Bration} stamp set.


The Fringe Scissors are used to create the grass, and the Banner punch to create the Swag.


For the first box, we stamped banners from the “Banner Blast” stamp set on to Naturals White, and then punched out with the Banner Punch.


On the second box, we used the “Sweet Sorbet” DSP to create the cute swag.
The stamp set “Perfect Pennants” and matching Banner Framelits are used to create the sign the bunny is holding.


The Bunny is created using a number of Punches; Petite Petals, Boho Blossoms, Large Oval, Extra-Large Oval, Small Heart, Owl Builder, Circle Framelits

This bunny is so cute, I just wanted to squeeze his cheeks!


Gift Card Holder

I made these with the class back at Christmas time, but after seeing the gorgeous card that Jen made using the “Perfect Blend” stamp set, I just had to use it too!

Made with the Envelope Punch Board {$38.95}, these are a breeze to make, and so quick and easy.
The coffee cup and wording are stamped with Black StazOn ink, then coloured using Blender Pens.


The “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set is liberally stamped in “Soft Suede” to create a spilt coffee effect.
For the inside of the card, I wasn't fussed on the underside of the DSP, so cut a strip of the gorgeous floral paper from the same pack, and stuck it to the flap that holds the gift card.


One would never know that I had altered the cardstock!!!
Instead of Washi Tape, I have used strips of DSP around the base of the card and tied with contrasting Organdy ribbon.


The sentiment “Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful” is from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set, had hand-coloured using Stampin’ Markers.
A Candy Dot is placed on the corner flap of the gift card holder to “anchor” the project.


I am secretly pleased as to how these two projects turned out!
