“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 1st May 2014


Thursday’s Class was all about Butterflies and the colour “Purple”!!!
And in attendance we had Bev, Kay, Lizzy, and Marion.



It was the last Thursday of the school holidays, and my hubby took the day off to help out with the kiddies.

I have to be honest, I had a meltdown at 12.15pm as our 2nd project was completed and consisted of Vellum being sponged with Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant.
I then stamped with Elegant Eggplant the “Wildflower Meadow” stamp, and then embossed with the “Wildflower Meadow” Embossing Folder.
My next step was to punch some flowers using the Petite Petals punch in Elegant Eggplant.
I used a Candy Dot Brad Bases and Pearls, and the peace-de-la-resiance was a spritz of “Smooch Spritz” … and the whole card buckled and the colours ran!!!!
I was devastated, so had to quickly re-hash a card I did back in December, and from my Post entitled “3 Sisters, 3 Cards … “.

Project #1
Our first project this week was a 8”x8” card featuring the Swallowtail stamp, the butterfly has a base of Naturals White cardstock, embossed in Black, and coloured using the Blender Pens in shades of Purples of Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant, and the accent colour was Rich Razzleberry. The butterfly is then fussy-cut.


The Crumb Cake cardstock is stamped using the “Hardwood” stamp in Sahara Sand.
Wisteria Wonder cardstock is embossed with the “Honeycomb” Embossing Folder, then hand-torn.
A second Butterfly was cut in Basic Black to form the shadow.


Finally the coloured Swallowtail Butterfly is added, adhered down the middle of the Butterfly with strong tape or glue.
The sentiment is StazOn Black on Rich Razzleberry, layered on Basic Black cardstock, Burlap, and Victoria Crochet Trim.


The flowers are punched using the Pansy Punch, and then crimped 8 times to break the cardstock fibres down, then the flowers are split, so 3 flowers become 6. The flowers are braded with Candy Dot Brad Bases and a Pearl along with a Petite Petals flower punched the retired but available on Clearance Rack “First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper”.


The card is anchored in the corner with a Candy Dot in Rich Razzleberry.
The card is then spritzed with “Smooch Spritz” – and no … the card did not run!!!

The peace-de-la-resiance is the Crystal Effects is used on the body of the butterfly and on the accent colour on the wings.
On the inside of the card, in Wisteria Wonder my favourite “Very Vintage” wheel is used, along with punched flowers in Rich Razzleberry and Pearls.
The sentiment is from the “Hello, Lovely” stamp set, and is first stamped in Wisteria Wonder, then the words “Thank You You’re The Best is stamped in Elegant Eggplant, then fussy-cut and layered on Dimensionals.


Phew … card done!

Project #2
The second card, is also in shades of Purple, this time in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant, and has a card-base of Naturals White.
First stamp the Swallowtail butterfly in Wisteria Wonder, then emboss 2/3 of the card with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, which will be available in the new Catalogue!!!.


Layer flowers stamped from the Mixed Bunch (and punched with the Blossom Punch} and Flower Shop {and Pansy Punch} stamp sets in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.
Brad with a Cady Dot Brad Base and add a Pearl.
Punch a couple of leaves with the Bird Builder Punch in Wisteria Wonder.
The sentiment ”Happy BIG Day” is from the Chalk Talk stamp set and matching framelits
On the inside of the card using Stampin’ Markers in Elegant Eggplant and Early Espresso, colour the words “Make A Wish” from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set.


And finally add a couple of dots and stripes, also from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set in shades of Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.
