“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 10th April 2014


WOWsiers, what a fab class we had this week, so many techniques, and two new ladies.
One crafter attended, that had travelled all the way from Timaru – that’s 572km or 355 miles!!!
Jenny also brought along her daughter-in-law to be {fingers crossed!!!}.
And, as it so happened, Chrissie recognised me from 23 years ago when I was a student at Nelson College For Girls – small world!!!

This week we made 2 gorgeous cards, a feminine vintage themed card, featuring the “Dress Up” framelits, and a masculine nautical themed card, featuring “The Open Sea” stamp set and Envelope Punch Board.



Vintage Dress Up! Card

The card is all about the layers, the base of the card is “Naturals White”, then Crumb Cake, which is stamped with the gorgeous background stamp “En Francais”, with Classic Stampin’ Pad in “Crumb Cake”, then paper pierced with the “Essentials” Paper Piercing Pack, and then a line is drawn through the piercing with a Stampin’ Write Maker in “Early Espresso” to give a faux stitched effect … Phew!



The top tight corner is rolled with cocktail skewer, and a contrasting piece of “Fan Fair” DSP is placed behind the Crumb Cake cardstock, and an Antique Brad is used to anchor the card.


The tags are made using the “Scallop Tag Topper” Punch.
The base tag is made using the “Natural Composition Specialty” cardstock which is sponged in “Soft Suede”, and then the “Corner” Punch is used to round the edges.
Follow the same steps for the second Tag, which has a base of Naturals White cardstock. The “Fine Feathers” stamp set is then stamped in random with Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake, then sponged in Sahara Sand.
The Mannequin base is cut using the “Dress Up” framelits in “Baked Brown Sugar” cardstock. The Dress is cut in “Fan Fair” DSP, with an overlay of Vellum, the Vellum has been sponged in “Blushing Bride”. The Belt for the dress is a sliver of Fan Fair with a single Pearl.
The Mannequin also a strand of Basic Pearls at the neckline.
The Tag is finished with Vintage Lace, Bakers Twine and a Vintage Trinket Safety Pin.
On the lower right corner, stamped in Soft Suede on Naturals White, the words “Just For You” is from the “Label Love” stamp set, and punched with the matching Artisan Label Punch.


A layer of Vellum is placed over the wording and adhered using 2 Brads from the “Vintage Trinkets”.
The inside of the card is stamped in Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake with the “Fine Feathers” stamp set, and the word “Congratulations” is from the “Happy Congratulations” stamp set, and stamped in Soft Suede.


Wahl ah … Vintage Dress Up! Card done!

Masculine Nautical Themed Card


The base of the card is “Chocolate Chip”, and a File Folder effect has been made using the Stampin’ Envelope Punch Board, the File inside the card is Naturals White, and as also been cut using the Envelope Punch Board.


Clear Embossing Powder has been used on the front of the card, along with the “Hardwood” stamp, which gives a gorgeous wood-grain effect.
Use the Heat Tool to heat set the Embossing Powder.
On a scrap of Naturals White, stamp the Passenger Ledger from “The Open Sea” stamp set, in Sahara Sand, then stamp the Compass in Soft Suede. Round the corners with the “Corner” Punch, and use the “Hexagon” Punch to create a banner. Sponge with Soft Suede, then place an Antique Brad through the centre of the compass, and adhere to the card.


On Naturals White, stamp the Passenger Ledger in Sahara Sand, tear the cardstock on one edge, and sponge with Soft Suede, on the other end of the cardstock, roll around a cocktail skewer, then sponge.
Add some Twine, and tie a reef knot.
Stamp the Ship in Soft Suede, then with the Aqua Painters, add some “water” by picking up colour from the “Soft Sky” stamp pad.
Layer on DImensionals, along with the sentiment “Just For You” from the “Label Love” stamp set, which is punched with the matching “Artisan Label” Punch, then fussy cut the edges, and finally sponge with Soft Suede.
The card {or “File”} inside the card is Naturals White, stamped with the “Hardwood” stamp in Sahara Sand.


The Anchor for “The Open Sea” stamp set is stamped in Soft Suede, the card is sponged in Soft Suede too.
On another scrap of cardstock, this time Chocolate Chip, stamp the Compass in Versamark, and add Gold Embossing Powder, and then heat set with the Heat Tool.
The inside edges of the main card base are taped together to form a pocket for the second card {or “File”} to slide into.
