“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 25th September 2014


This weeks “Create With Kathe“ Craft Class was all about shades of Gray, along with utilizing products from the Weekly Deals.
Our first project featured the “On Film” Framelits, and a gorgeous bird that has been heat embossed in Silver, with a feather from the “Four Feathers” stamp set, then punched using the Bird Builder Punch, love this effect!
The second project was a fancy fold Z card, featuring the “Window Frames Collection” Framelits, along with the “Bloom With Hope” stamp set.
This layout/sketch is a case via Stephanie David, entitled “For The Birds”.

Project 1 Shades Of Gray Card


The card base for this card is Smokey Slate, which as been embossed with the “Honeycomb” Textured Embossing Folder, and the corners rounded with the Project Life Corner Punch.
The sentiment “Thinking Of You” is from the “Everyday Occasions Card Making Kit” and had been heat embossed in Silver on Vellum, then backed with Basic Gray cardstock, and cut with the “Project Life Cards & Labels” Framelits. Two small Mini Brads secure the Vellum to the Basic Gray cardstock, which is then adhered to the card with Dimensionals.
For the film strip, Basic Black cardstock is cut wit the “On Film” Framelits, it is then backed with Whisper White cardstock to give a dramatic effect.
Basic Gray cardstock has been heat embossed in Silver, with a feather from the “Four Feathers” stamp set, then punched using the Bird Builder Punch, love this effect!
A paper Doily is placed behind the film strip, and a small Heart added, featuring the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, which is punched using the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
The finished film strip is then adhered with Dimesnionals.
Some White Bakers Twine is tied around the card and looped through a Basic Metal Button, and tied with a bow.


For the inside of the card, I kept ii simple with a Heart in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper in the upper right hand corner, and along the base of the card, heat embossed in Silver is the cute flower border from the Photopolymer  stamp set "Bordering Blooms" + the corners are rounded with the Project Life Corner punch.
Wah-lah … Shades Of Gray Card done!

Project 2 “Window Frames” Z Fold Card


This card was a quick and easy project, as it is all about layering.
Whisper White cardstock is folded in half, then folded back to form a Z fold.
Smokey Slate cardstock is layered with Designer Series Paper "All Is Calm", which gives a nice subtle effect.
Three Pearl Basic Jewels have been coloured with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and added to the top left hand corner, which has also been repeated on the bottom right hand corner of the larger panel.
For the Window, there are three layers, first in Smokey Slate, which has been pieced using the “Festive Paper Piecing” guide, and the Paper-Piercing Tool and the Stampin’ Pierce Mat.


The second layer in Whisper White is plain {no embellishments}.
The third layer, also in Whisper White, is stamped with the “Bloom With Hope” stamp set in Black StazOn, then coloured with the Aqua Painters in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Strawberry Slush and a small coloured Pearl Basic Jewel is added to the centre of each flower. The stems have been coloured using the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.
The Window Panel is then adhered with tape/glue on one side of the Z fold, to overlap onto the insert part of the card.
For the card insert, layer Smokey Slate with Whisper White cardstock.
Add the sentiment “Happy Birthday” or “With Sympathy” also from the “Bloom With Hope” stamp set.


The final touch are three little Pearl Basic Jewels, which have been coloured with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities, and added to the right hand corner of the card insert, which anchors the projects, and finishes the card of nicely.
Wah-lah … Window Frames” Z Fold Card done!
