Create With Kathe” For Thursday 6th November 2014


Last weeks Class, we made two projects {well actually 3!}, an xtra cute Purse, made from the “Top Note” Bigz Die, in a lovely floral pattern, with a matching 3”x3” card, and a Christmas card featuring the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and matching “Wonderful Wreath” Framelits…

Project 1 “Top Note” Purse + Matching 3”x3” Card


This xtra cute Purse is made from the “Top Note” Bigz Die, and cut 3x in Soft Suede, and 1x in a patterned cardstock {I chose the “All Abloom” Designer Series Paper Stack}.
The patterned cardstock is cut back to the faux stitch line, and adhered to one of the Soft Suede Top Notes.


The inside of the purse or gusset comes from a mini paper bag, which is cut to 3” in height.
The flower is made by using the “Blossom” Punch, x4 in Strawberry Slush {or Pool Party, or Naturals White}, and then crimped x10 times in the Paper Crimper. The fibres of the cardstock are then broken down, so you can split each Blossom into 2, petal by petal {take it slowly!} = 8 Blossoms.


The Blossoms are then placed furry side up, adhered with a Mini Brad, then a Very Vintage Designer Button is threaded with Linen Thread, a bow tied, and adhered to the Blossom, over the Mini Brad.
The Blossom is then adhered to the Purse.
The closures for the Purse{s} are self-adhesive Velcro Dots.
For the mini card, Soft Suede cardstock is cut 3”x6” and folded in half.
Two pieces of Naturals White cardstock are cut to 2, 7/8”x2, 7/8”, then corner rounded with the Project Life Corner Punch.
The smudge or watermark stamp from the “Work Of Art” stamp set, and is stamped in Strawberry Slush {or Coastal Cabana}, and without re-inking the stamp, it is stamped again a second time on the cardstock to form two different shades of  pink.


Repeat this step for the inside of the card, by first stamping the stamp off to remove the bright colour ink, then restamping on the card insert.
The words “Just For You” are stamped in early Espresso.
A Heart is punched with the “Sweetheart” Punch, using matching pattered Designer Series Paper, and is backed with contrasting cardstock {Strawberry Slush}, and adhered with Dimensionals. A small Heart in contrasting cardstock is punched using the Heart from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
The small Heart is then adhered to the Sweetheart Heart, and a small Pearl Basic Jewel is added to the centre of the Heart.
I have added a small Heart to the card insert as well, along with a small Pearl Basic Jewel.


Wha-lah … “Top Note” Purse + Matching 3”x3” Card done!

Project 2 “Wondrous Wreath” Christmas Card


I wanted to demonstrate to my ladies, how one stamp set can be used to make an entire card, and the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and matching “Wonderful Wreath” Framelits is perfect for this.
We created a faux door by stamping the Naturals White cardstock with the “Hardwood” stamp in Sahara Sand, a separate smaller piece is also stamped, then cut into 4 rectangles to form the panels of the door.
A Brad from the Antique Brads is used to make the door handle.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, the Wreath is first stamped in Old Olive, then Garden Green, then Real Red to make the glorious multi coloured Christmas Wreath, which is placed on the door.
Some yummy Real Red Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around the Wreath and tied with a bow.
The sentiment “Happy Wonderful Christmas” is coloured using Early Espresso and Real Red Stampin’ Markers, and stamped onto Naturals White cardstock.
The sentiment is then cut using the “Apothecary Accents” framelits, and 2 pieces of Real Red cardstock are also cut using the same Framelits, and placed behind the sentiment to give a red border.
Adhered with Dimensionals, the final touch is my now signature Glimmer Paper Candy Dots in a lovely sparkling Red.


As the cardbase is Naturals White, there is no need for a lining, so for the card insert, the words “May happy moments & cherished memories surround you with joy this season” is stamped in Early Espresso directly onto the Naturals White cardstock.
The “Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border” Punch is used to cut a strip of Red Glimmer Paper, and is placed as a border on the bottom of the insert, for a bit of bling!


Wah-lah … “Wondrous Wreath” Christmas Card done!
