“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 26th March 2015


This week we had Class on Tuesday 24th March 1pm>3pm, and on Thursday 26th March 1pm>3pm, and again 7pm>9pm.
We had 3 new ladies join us this week, and we had “such fun”!!!
AND … we do it all over again next week!


Our first project is a clean and elegant “Thank You Card with Emboss Resist”, featuring the “Lotus Blossom” stamp set, and the second project featured my new “Berry Basket” Die, and I took inspiration for the colours via my good friend Sally Rice ...

Project 1 “Thank You Card with Emboss Resist”



Techniques covered are Emboss Resist, Embossing, 3 Layer Stamping, Scoring with the "Simply Scored Scoring Tool", Die Cutting, Negative Detail, Punching {the ladies had a choice between the new “Ornate Tag Topper” Punch, the “Scalloped Tag Topper” Punch and the “Angled Tag Topper” Punch}, and layering with Dimensionals/Vellum, Cardstock.



Embellishments include the Pearl Basic Jewels, Rosette Trim from the Artisan Embellishment Kit, and Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon.
Stamp sets featured are “Painted Petals” and “Lotus Blossom”.


On the card insert, the “Lotus Blossom” is stamped in Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, and Blushing Bride stamped off once.   Followed by Clear Stampin’ Embossing Powder.


I have also designed a Gift Card Holder, using the “Top Note” Die, which is cut twice in Whisper White cardstock, the smaller section is stamped with the “Lotus Blossom” stamp.
Wah-lah … “Thank You Card with Emboss Resist” done!


Project 2 “Easter/Thank You Berry Basket”



The card base for this is Sahara Sand, with the side panels of the basket having an overlay of sponged “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Series Paper, in Soft Sky.



The flowers are in Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Island Indigo, and are cut using the “Spiral Flower Originals” Die. Love this colour combo, which is inspired by Sally Rice.


The little bows are in Island Indigo cardstock, are we used the cute little “Bow Builder” Punch a bunch of these bows!


The leaves that surround the flowers are Garden Green cardstock and cut with the “Flower Frenzy” Die.


For the Tag, which is Naturals White cardstock, and has the word “Happy” cut in Island Indigo cardstock with the “Hello You” Thinlits. And the word “Easter” is from the “Crazy About You” stamp set, and stamped in Island Indigo ink.


For the second Tag, I have cut the word “Thanks” with the “Hello You” Thinlits, and the wording “for all that you do” is from the “For Being You” stamp set.
The finishing touches are the flowers, punched with the “Petite Petals” punch, and secured with a Candy Dot Brad Base, and a pearl added from the Pearl Basic Jewels.


The ribbon is Lost Lagoon, and matched back perfectly with this colour scheme.
Tune in next week, when we use the “Berry Basket” Die again, this time to make a “Flower Pot Card”.


Wha-lah … “Easter/Thank You Berry Basket” done!
