“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 3rd July 2014


Crikey where did the month go?!!!
Tuesday was the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, and I can't help but add more items to my “Wish List”!
Unfortunately I squealed so loudly with excitement {for the new Catty} that I lost my voice for 3 days!!!
This weeks craft class, we had 2 new ladies attend, Lynn and Joy, which brought the class number to 5.
Both of Thursday’s cards feature the “Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies”, and are used in two different ways …


First up we did a Spinning Sliding Card, which is a c.a.s.e. of a card I saw in Jacque’s swaps, but sorry, I do not know who the original artist is.
The original was in Crisp Cantaloupe, but I went with either Coastal Cabana or Strawberry Slush ...


This card was a very good practise, as Monday night I am teaching this to the “Women Connecting” Craft Class, and there will be 35 ladies there!
I needed to know in advance if there would be any problems teaching this intricate card to such a number!
This card is all about the layering, and of course the 2x 10c pieces of real money!
Colours used are Coastal Cabana {or Strawberry Slush}, Crumb Cake and Naturals White, with stamp sets featured “Flower Shop”, “Something To Say” and “Wetlands”, and punches “Pansy”, “Word Window”.



The second card we made is a gorgeous shabby chic mason jar of butterflies, with the words “Live the life you've imagined” from the “Really Good Greetings” stamp set.
The mason jar is made using the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, and is cut in Vellum, and backed with Naturals White.
The butterflies that spill out of the jar were cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, which cuts and embossed at the same time, along with the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set and matching “Bitty Butterfly” Punch.
The finishing touch is the Stampin’ Glitter “Dazzling Diamonds” on the butterflies’ wings.

The colours used in this card are Soft Suede, Naturals White and Marina Mist, which go so well together, and were an inspiration I drew on from a card that Jacque had made at her recent class her in Nelson.


Next week, we use the “Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies” again, this time to make a ship {from “The Open Sea” stamp set} in a bottle … stay tuned!
