“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 22nd May 2014


Thursday’s Class we had a test run for my upcoming Work Shop, which was this past Sunday, where we case’d a card designed by Jacque Williams.
In attendance we had Bev, Kay, Lizzy, and Marion, and Lizzy brought with her some yummy homemade Ginger Slice – soooooo good!

The ladies first made a card that featured not one, but three different Embossing Powders, Clear, White and Gold, and all the cards looked amazing.
The second project was a case of a card designed by my Mentor Jacque, featuring the “Wetlands” stamp set and the Painters Tape technique.

Project 1 Floral Card
The cards base is “Pool Party”, and the stamp sets “Secret Garden”, “Happy Watercolor” and “Chalk Talk” are all stamped on “Coastal Cabana” cardstock, with Versamark and Embossing Powders; White for the flowers, Gold for the sentiment, and the “En Francais” background is Clear Embossing Powder stamped on to the Pool Party base.


We did some hand painting with the Aqua Painters in Tempting Turquoise and Coastal Cabana for the flowers.
The flowers are then cut out using the “Secret Garden” framelits, and the long stem from the “Happy Watercolor” stamp set is fussy cut.
I chose to add a sentiment {in Gold Embossing Powder} from the “Chalk Talk” stamp set, with the wording “I am so grateful there is you in the world”, and on in the inside of the card, also in Gold Embossing Powder are the words “Thanks so much” from the “Wetlands” stamp set.


The card is finished off with the gorgeous "Watercolour Wonder" Washi Tape, and the finishing touch on the card, are the abundance of gorgeous Pearls.

Project 2 “Wetlands” Card
The “Wetlands” stamp set is the perfect stamp set to purchase, as it can be used for a masculine card, birthday or bereavement, and is such a versatile stamp set.


The ladies knocked this card out in 20 minutes, and although they all started with the same products, each card looked slightly different.
The card base {11”x4”} is Crumb Cake, which is stamped with the Hardwood stamp {also} in Crumb Cake, and the edges are then sponged with Crumb Cake.
The smaller piece of Naturals White card-stock {4,3/8”x2,7/8”} is stamped with Sahara Sand with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, to represent the sand.
Painters Tape {the green roll – I tried 3 different types before I got it right!} is then laid on the Soft Sky Ink Pad and then onto the cardstock {to resemble the sky}, follow the same process, but this time with Sahara Sand {to resemble the sand}.
The birds are stamped with StazOn Black, along with the sentiment.
Sponge the edges with Crumb Cake, and then add Stampin’ Glitter “Dazzling Diamonds” to the feet and shadows of the birds.
Strands of Linen Thread are tied with a bow around the card, and then the card is Dimensionaled onto another piece of Naturals White card-stock {4,½”x3”} which is 1/8” larger, which is also Dimensionaled onto the card base - Phew!
The inside of the card has a lining of Naturals White {5,3/8”x3,7/8”}, sponged in Crumb Cake, and some more birds stamped with StazOn Black.
Wah- lah … Wetlands card done!
