“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 10th July 2014


 Another week done and dusted!

Saturday I had a Work Shop with Bev and her friends, and we made the sliding spinning card that I test ran on our Crafty Ladies last week {will do a separate post in the coming days}.

THEN Monday night I taught at the “Women Connecting” Craft Group, and we made 2 sliding spinning cards.
The ladies had the cards done and dusted, and we finished up early.
As the class is steadily increasing in numbers, I had to make up 35 kits of each card, which made 70 kits in all to be made!!!
I have just had to order new blades for my Stampin’ Trimmer!
{I will do a separate post in the coming days}.

This brings us to our weekly “Create With Kathe” Craft Class on Thursday.
We made 2 cards, the first a d lovely floral card featuring the “Vivid Vases” stamp set and the Blendabilities Pens, the second card was a ship in a bottle, where we carried on with last weeks theme and used the Apothecary Accents Framelits to make the bottle.

Project 1 Floral Card featuring “Vivid Vases” Stamp Set



The card base is Naturals White, layered with Basic Gray cardstock, and then Coastal Cabana cardstock, which has been embossed with the “Decorative Dots” Embossing Folder. The corners are rounded with the Corner Rounder Punch
Naturals White cardstock and Background Designers Series Paper Stack in Coastal Cabana are punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and then sponged with Crumb Cake.
Random splotches from the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set in Coastal Cabana are stamped on the Naturals White Tag.
The “Vivid Vases” stamp is stamped on Whisper White cardstock then coloured with the Blendabilities Pens, and then fussy cut and adhered with Dimensionals to the Naturals White Tag.


The “Hey There!” from the “Just Sayin’” stamp set are stamped with Black StazOn on Vellum, then cut with the “Word Bubbles” Framelits.
The rose is made using the same Background Designers Series Paper Stack in Coastal Cabana and the Spiral Flower Originals Die, and several flowers are punched using the Petite Petals punch, and placed either side of the flower and in the middle of the spiral flower.
The finishing touch is the colouring of the Linen Thread, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons and the Pearls using the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker.
Inside the card, the words “Everything with be OK, even if we can’t see what OK is yet” is stamped from the “Really Good Greetings” stamp set, using the Basic Black and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Markers, and of course another splotch form the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set in Coastal Cabana.
Wah-lah Floral Card featuring the “Vivid Vases” stamp set done!

Project 2 Ship In A Bottle Card



I first saw a similar card on Pinterest, which gave an awesome Tutorial via "Stamp With Bernie" on how to make the bottle using the Apothecary Accents Framelits.
I followed the instructions and then made a template in clear plastic, which the ladies used to draw around the edges of the Apothecary shape, to create the bottle.
The card base is Soft Suede, which has been sponged in Crumb Cake.
The next layer is Marina Mist, which has been stamped randomly with the stamps from “The Open Sea” stamps in Crumb Cake, and the edges are sponged in Marina Mist, with one corner being rolled, and then sponged.
The top left corner has a square of Crumb Cake cardstock which has been faux stitched with the Piercing Tool and the “Essentials” Paper Piercing Set, and placed behind the rolled corner.
The bottle is Whisper White cardstock, and is cut using the Apothecary Framelits, and then the Bottle template is placed over the shape and drawn around, and then fussy cut.
The bottle is first outlined in Black with the Basic Black Stampin’ Marker.
The ship is from “The Open Sea” stamp set, and is stamped on a slant in Black StazOn, with the sails lightly coloured with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Marker.
The sea and a touch of the sky are sponged with Marina Mist.
Once dry, the remainder of the bottle is sponged with So Saffron, and when that layer is dry, the edges of the bottle are sponged in Chocolate Chip.
The bottle is adhered with Dimensionals, and Bakers Twine is tied around the neck of the bottle.
A bottle top {you can pick up a bag of 100 at the grocery store for around $3} is then squashed in the Big Shot and the gum seal removed.
Stamped on a scrap of Naturals White in Black StazOn are the words  “1 great life.” from the stamp set “Something to Say”, and is punched out using the 1” Circle Punch, and then sponged in Chocolate Chip, this is adhered to the squashed bottle top.
The Crop-A-Dile is then used to punch a small hole through the metal, which the Bakers Twin is then threaded through.
The bottle top is adhered to the card with a Dimensional and the finishing touch is the Crystal Effects which is added the surface of the bottle top to give a raised and glossy effect.
This is then left overnight for the Crystal Effects to dry.
The inside of the card has a piece of Naturals White cardstock which has been sponged with Crumb Cake, and has an anchor stamped at the bottom corner, this is adhered with double sided sticky tape to the card-base.
Wah-lah Ship In A Bottle Card done!
