"Create With Kathe" Craft Class For Thursday 9th April 2015



At this weeks "Create With Kathe" Craft Class, we made a shabby chic feminine card with the "Moon Lake" stamp set, and a masculine card featuring the "Guy Greetings" and "By The Tide" stamp sets.
We will be re-making these gorgeous cards at my RE# Class on Wednesday evening, bookings essential!

Project 1 Shabby Chic “Moon Lake” Card



The cardbase for this card is Soft Suede, with an overlay of Sahara Sand cardstock, which has been faux-stitched with the “Essentials” Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin’ Pierce Mat, and Paper-Piercing Tool. The faux-stitch line is then connected with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Marker. And  finally sponged with Sahara Sand ink.


Faux-stitched, this time in a xx pattern has been used on a small square of “Stacked With Love” Designer Series Paper Stack, and adhered behind the rolled corner of the Sahara Sand cardstock. The roll is created by using a cocktail skewer. A gorgeous vintage rosette is then placed in the corner.
Pink Pirouette cardstock has been stamped with the “Something Lacy” background stamp in Pink Pirouette. The edges have the cardstock have been distressed using my Paper Snips, then sponged with Sahara Sand ink.


Watercolour Paper has been stamped in Black StazOn with the bird stamp from the “Moon Lake” stamp set. Using the Aqua Painters and various inks: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Soft Suede and Early Espresso Stampin’ Marker, the image has been coloured, and the Soft Sky has been used to illuminate the image. The cardstock has then been distressed, and sponged with Sahara Sand ink. Three small Pearl Basic Jewels have been added the watercoloured panel – ‘tis all in the details!
The sentiment “Happy Birthday” is from the “Butterfly Basics” stamp set, and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.


Some gorgeous Sahara Sand Lace Trim is adhered to the Pink Pirouette panel, and some Linen Thread is tied with bow, cinching the middle of the Lace Trim.
The Pink Pirouette panel is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, all other panels are adhered with tape or glue.


For the card insert, Naturals White cardstock is stamped with the same “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Early Espresso ink.


A scrap of Tea Lace Paper Doily is placed behind a strip of stamped Pink Pirouette cardstock {again stamped with the “Something Lacy” background stamp set in Pink Pirouette on Pink Pirouette}, which has been punched using the “Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border” Punch.
Some Linen Thread is threaded through the small punched holes and a tiny bow added – again ‘tis all in the details!
Some interpretations of the birds by a couple of my afternoon ladies ...

Wah-lah … Shabby Chic “Moon Lake” Card done!

Project 2 Masculine “Guy Greetings” + “By the Tide” Card


The cardbase for this card is Pool Party, with an overlay of Pacific Point cardstock.
Whisper White cardstock has been scored with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, 1/8” in on all sides.
The sentiment “World’s Greatest” is stamped in Pacific Point ink.
The pond is an interpretation of a Pin I saw on Pinterest by Janine Tinklenberg 
The fish are from the “By The Tide” stamp set, and are stamped in Black StazOn onto Watercolour Paper.
They are then coloured with Aqua Painters and Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise inks. The eyes are enhanced with an extra-fine Sharpie in Black and the Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen in White.
The fish are then fussy-cut, then tied with Linen Thread, and attached to the fishing pole which is cocktail skewer.
Some of the ladies cut their pool, to allow the fish to do their thang!


The finishing touch on the fish is the use of the Dazzling Details, which makes the fish look like they have real scales!
The Whisper White panel is adhered to the Pacific Point panel with tape/glue.
The Pacific Point panel is adhered to the base-card of Pool Party with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


For the card insert, Whisper White cardstock has been punched with the “Spiral Border” Punch.
The sentiments “Happy Father’s Day” or “Happy Birthday” are stamped in Pacific Point ink, and are both from the “Guy Greetings” stamp set.


On the lower right-hand corner, the anchor stamp from the “By The Tide” stamp set is stamped in Pacific Point, on to Whisper White cardstock, then punched using the 1” Circle Punch, then adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I love how my crafty ladies can interpret my designs and make them their own, I have selected a few of the cards made by the ladies, and ALL the fish are doing totally different things!
