“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 15th May 2014


Thursday’s "Create With Kathe" Class was all about colour and techniques.
In attendance we had Bev, Kay, Lizzy, and Marion.

I did NOT take the evening Class off, as Jen and I had a “Card Off” challenge, that lasted till 1am, + we went through a whole packet of Chewy Caramel Tim Tams!!!
After many giggles, we were down to the last one, which Jen kindly offered to me, however when I slid the packet open there were 2 left, so we had one each, more giggles and … ahhhh Bliss!!!


Project 1 “Quilt Card”
I made my first Quilt Card last week for my Mother-In-law Nola for "Mother's Day", and used the "Tea for Two" Designer Series Paper, available on Clearance Rack.


Thursday's class, the card base is Naturals White, and the “quilted” cardstock featured is “Watercolour Wonder” Designer Series Paper, which is also featured on the Baby/Child's Card {next project}.



Cut 20x 1"x1" squares, and adhere to a piece of Naturals White card-stock cut to 4"x5".
Before adhering, I scored the cardstock at the 1" mark, e.g. on the 5" side, score at 1", 2", 3", 4" and on the 4" side, score at 1', 2",3", this keeps the squares straight and inline before the embossing takes place.
The Embossing Folder is the “Square Lattice” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and after running it through the Big Shot twice, the lines of the Quilt tend to merge to look more quilt-ish!
The teacup is from the “Tea Shoppe” stamp set, available on My Digital Studio Download. It is the gorgeous colour of Tempting Turquoise, and fussy cut, then adhered to the Quilt, leaving an opening at the top for the teabag and sentiment note to slip in.


The sentiment is from the “Chalk Talk” stamp set, and the background is Tempting Turquoise, “I’m so grateful there is you in the world” is hand coloured with Stampin’ markers in Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Coral and Old Olive. Layered on Dimensionals, and then stapled to the teabag – yes that is a real teabag, the ladies had a choice between Peppermint or regular!
Inside the card, the teacups are coloured with Stampin’ Markers L-R Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Coral and Old Olive.


The wording “for everything you are to me” is stamped in Tempting Turquoise and from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set.

Wah-lah Quilt card done!

Project 2“Baby/Child’s Card”
Recently my good friend Sally gave me a whole heap of gorgeous swaps, and amongst the cards was a cute Baby card, with no name on it, so I apologise in advance to the original artist, and if this design is yours, please let me know.
I have case’d, yet altered the original quite a bit, first changing the card to a finished size of 4”x4”.


Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 12”x4”, score at 4” and 8”, cut the corners on the diagonal to leave 12” of Crumb Cake cardstock across the bottom of the card, and 4” at the top {hope that make sense!!!}.
The “Watercolor Wonder” Designer Series Paper is cut 4”x4”, then cut diagonally to form 2 triangles.
Adhere to the flaps, turn one piece of the DSP cardstock over, to reveal the reverse pattern.
Using Tempting Turquoise cardstock and matching Stampin’ Pad, stamp a Lion from the “Zoo Babies” stamp set on to Naturals White, stamp a second lion and fussy cut his head and adhere on Dimensionals.
Using the Circles Collection Framelits, cut a circle {around the Lion}, then adhere that to a 1 ¾” Scallop Circle in Tempting Turquoise, adhere with 2 Dimensionals.


Tie a bow with Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon, and run it behind the Lion emblem, and around the card.
The card that slides out of the 4”x4” card pocket, has a card-base of Crumb Cake layered with Naturals White.
An Antique Brad is placed through Tempting Turquoise cardstock, punched with the Artisan Label Punch.
A cheeky little Monkey, also from the “Zoo Babies” stamp set is stamped in Daffodil Delight.


I deliberately did not add any words to this card, so that it could be used as a baby card or as a child’s birthday card.

Wah-lah … Baby/Child’s Card done!
