"Create With Kathe" Craft Class For Thursday 2nd April 2015


This weeks “Create With Kathe” Craft Class was all about my new “Berry Basket” Bigz L Die, which was featured in both projects.
We made a “Berry Basket Flower Pot” Card and a “Punch Art Easter Berry Basket” …

Project 1 “Berry Basket Flower Pot” Card

 

The cardbase for this card is Naturals White, with the card insert either Crisp Cantaloupe or Wisteria Wonder cardstock.
The Flower Pot is cut with Sahara Sand {my new favourite!} cardstock with the “Berry Basket” Die, and then embossed with the “Decorative Dots” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The dirt is a strip of Soft Suede cardstock  ... it is all in the details!
As the Fringe Scissors were on a Weekly Deal that week, these were used to cut the two layers of grass {Garden Green cardstock}.



The ladies had a choice between orange toned flowers, which was a combo of Tangerine Tango and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, or purple toned flowers, which was a combo of Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
Just about ALL the ladies chose the first option!
The flowers were stamped with the “Flower Shop” stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe or Wisteria Wonder ink, then punched using the “Pansy” Punch.
The centre of the flowers are So Saffron cardstock, and I tried out my new Stampin’ Glitter in Gold – loved it so much I just had to order the Silver in!
The butterflies are stamped with the "Butterfly Basics" stamp set, then punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch, and layered, before 3 small Rhinestone Basic Jewels have been added to the centre of the butterflies.



The sentiment “just because” is stamped in Garden Green ink, and is from the stamp set “A Dozen Thoughts”.   This is the perfect sentiment, as it can carry a whole range of cards … thinking of you, birthday, bereavement, sickness, friendship etc.



For the card insert, the “Petite Petals” stamp set is stamped in either Crisp Cantaloupe or Wisteria Wonder ink, and a little flower from the “Itty Bitty Punch Pack” is punched  in the darker cardstock {Tangerine Tango or Elegant Eggplant}, and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel is placed in the centre.
The finishing touch is the “Confetti Heart Border” Punch which is featured as negative detail on the card insert.
Wah-lah … “Berry Basket Flower Pot” Card done!

Project 2 ”Punch Art Easter Berry Basket”


We also made an Easter Basket with the “Berry Basket” Bigz L Die, with a cute little bow, made with the “Bow Builder” Punch.
Easter is the perfect time to get out your Punches, and experiment with some Punch Art. To get some other great Punch Art ideas, check out Pinterest
This bunny is based on the Punch Art Easter Bunny I made last year …



I used a variety of Punches to create the Easter Bunny, 1” Circle, 2” Circle, Boho Blossoms, Extra-Large Oval, heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Large Oval, Owl Builder, Petite Petals, and “Circles Collection” Framelits.
The little bunny is holding a sign, stamped in Old Olive featuring the “Crazy About You” and “Perfect Pennants” stamp sets.
Wah-lah …”Punch Art Easter Berry Basket” done!
