“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 12th June 2014


WOWsers we had fun on Thursday!
Both Classes were small, but we had maaaaaany laughs!


Bev made Pikelets and homemade Kiwifruit Jam for our afternoon tea, she is such a sweetie, and she also made a jar of Kiwifruit Jam for Jen, Kay and Marion, and oh Moi! AND it is divine – thanks Bev!
At the evening class we had a newbie, Audrey attend, and we finished not too late {compared with previous nights hint hint Bev and Jen!!!}, although we did eat most of the Chewy Caramel Tim Tams!
Our first project was inspired by a Scrapbook Layout by Jacque Williams, which she taught the previous weekend at our quarterly Scrapbook Class.
The second project, the ladies made 4 cards each, and got to mix and match their choice of colours, Hostess stamp sets {“Simply Sketched” and “Bloom With Hope”}, and techniques: Aqua Painters, Blendabilities and Blender Pens.
I was so impressed with their gorgeous work, that all the ladies artful work is featured below ..

Project 1 “Hexagons and Pennants”


Saying “Goodbye” to my fav Doily, the “Paper Doily Sizzlits L”, and ”Hello” to 2 of the new In Colours “Blackberry Bliss” and “Hello Honey”.
The card-base is Naturals White, with the colours of Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and neutrals Crumb Cake, Soft Suede featuring.
Have to say I love the new “Moonlight” Designer Series Paper Stack, and was pleasantly surprised by the colour and prints, and with 48 sheets in a pack, $14.50 is a very good price!


The sentiment for the 2 sample cards, are hand coloured using Stampin’ Write Markers in Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey, and feature the wording “I Freakin’ Love You” from the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set, and “You've Got Courage, You've Got Strength” from the “Something To Say” stamp set.


The “Word Bubble” framelits are used to cut the sentiment, but as I wanted the tail of the bubble to tilt in a different direction, I showed the ladies, how using the light and painters tape, how to reverse cut the Bubble.



The ladies also learnt how to make an xtra cute flower using Linen Thread.
As with all cards, each ladies card{s} turned out slightly different, which I always love to see, as just with the flip of a 2 sided cardstock, this can change the whole look of the project!

Project 2 “Mini Gift Cards”


The ladies got to make 4 cards each, with the finished size of the cards 3”x3”.
The card-bases were Crumb Cake cardstock, cut 6”x3”, with Naturals White cardstock, cut to 2 7/8”x2 7/8”.
I made up an array of cards ...








The ladies then got to mix and match their choice of colours, Hostess stamp sets {“Simply Sketched” and “Bloom With Hope”}, and techniques: Aqua Painters, Blendabilities and Blender Pens.
As you can see from the list below, we tried many colour combos!
The inside of the cards had either words stamped, or gorgeous images stamped and coloured ...


As a colour/technique comparison, I made up a card using the same stamp, and 3 different colouring combos …


Combo 1 is Memento Ink Pad + Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities


Combo 2 is Memento Ink Pad + Aqua Painters and Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Ink Colours {and Pool Party washed around edges} ...


Combo 3 is StazOn Black + Aqua Painters and Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Ink Colours ...


These cards are quick and easy to replicate, and making a small card for a friend can really lighten {and makin'} her day!
