“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 5th June 2014


Thursday’s Class{es} were so much fun!
For the afternoon Class we had Bev, Kay, and Marion attend, and Kay made some yummy Chocolate Muffins with tiny Easter Eggs in the centre, + of course my Sour Worms!
For the evening Class, Lizzy and Jen attended, with Lizzy bringing along some divine fudge, + we had a packet of Chewy Caramel Tim Tams - of course!

Project 1: Wedding Card
Bev requested a Wedding Card, blue themed to match back with a wedding Invitation, as Bev and her hubby were attending a wedding that same weekend.


“Pacific Point “ was an exact colour match, with Naturals White as the card base.
We made a tri-fold card, with the front panel an inspiration that came from Pinterest which so far I have had 886 repins – so sorry I do not know who the original artist was!!!



The first version used Clear Embossing Powder on the front panel, the second card has White Embossing Powder, both feature the retiring “Very Vintage” Wheel.
Tulle in “Café a Lait” is placed over the entire front panel. Then cinched with Bakers Twine and a heart shaped wooden button.
Two birds in Pacific Point are punched using the Bird Builder punch, and Pearls added for the eyes, and 2 little hearts in Blushing Bride are punched using the Small Heart punch, and 2 more Pearls are added.
The second panel features the “You are Loved” stamp set {My Digital Studio}, the large floral heart stamped in Blushing Bride, and on a scrap piece of cardstock, in Pacific Point the word “Love” is stamped, then punched with the Decorative Label punch, another small heart is added and 5 Pearls in total are on this Panel.
In Pacific Point cardstock, and using the Artisan Label punch, a label is punched and hen adhered to the Panel, a hole is made using my trusty Crop-A-Dile, then Tulle is threaded through and knotted, THEN the whole Panel is adhered to the main card base.


{Panel 2}

The last panel has two versions, the first card has a beautifully coloured bird on the third panel , however this  has been changed to a flower {thanks Kay for this idea} on the second card, both of these stamps are from the “Simply Sketched” stamp set.


{Panel 3}


{Panel 3}

Two more little hearts are added with more Pearls, and finally the words “for the new Mr. & Mrs.” Are stamped in pacific point, these words are from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set.
Wah-lah … Wedding Card done!

Project 2: “Masculine Nautical Card”
The second project also has two versions.



The card base is Naturals White which has been stamped on both sides of the cardstock with the “World Map” stamp set in Sahara Sand.




The “Festival Of Prints” {My Digital Studio} cardstock feature, with the accent colours of Island Indigo and Chocolate Chip cardstock.
Stamp set used through out this card are “Just Sayin’”, “The Open Sea”, “Wetlands”, and the “World Map”.
And Dies used are “Label Card Thinlits” {used to make the flip}, “Word Bubbles” and “Finishing Touches” Edgelits.



Punches used are “Banner”, “Extra Large Oval” and the “Postage Stamp”.
The inside Panel is Vellum, which has been cut to shape using the Label Card Thinlits, then stamped in Island Indigo with the birds from the “Wetlands” stamp set. Little banner flags have been adhered to the top, using the Banner punch, and scraps of cardstock.



The finishing touches are on the side panel, which has an Antique Brad through the Compass, Dazzling Diamonds on the birds feet, and the Anchor 
which has been Dimensionaled.



Wah-lah … Masculine Nautical Card done!
