For You

First of, I would like to announce that if you wanted to take my Sympathy Cards class, but wasn't able to attend, I had scheduled an additional one for Sunday, March 1st, 12 pm to 3 pm. To see the cards, please click here. Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up.

OK, now onto the new cards.. These will be card one and card two for my upcoming "Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug and Nestabilites" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three cards at this class, and I am still working on the third one. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, February 26th, 11 am to 2:30 pm
Thursday, February 26th, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up.

Both of these cards look much better in real life. I had hard time taking photos of the cards because of the shimmer of the metallic cardstock, and doing it at 2 o'clock in the morning sure did not help..

These cards measure 6" x 6".

I created the grid on the background with the Scor-Pal. The Butterflies are from the Cuttlebug die-cut and emboss combo set. Dew Drops on the butterflies bodies. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, embossed with White Embossing Powder. Circles were cut and embossed with Nestabilites. Corners are the punch by EK Success called Photo Corners Fancy.

This card wanted to stay "simple" and I just had to let it be ;-) . I wanted to make this style card for a long time!! I used Nestabilites Label One dies on this card, just LOVE THEM!! First I created the opening with the largest die in the set (cut and embossed), then I cut and embossed another shape with the second larger die and heat embossed the image in the center. Then I placed the layer with the image in the center of the card, that created the illusion of the frame but really the gold that you see is showing from the bottom layer through the opening. Hope this makes sense.. The stamp is from Inkadinkado. The corners were done with the same punch, I think I found my new favorite..

What gorgeous cards! I would definitely attend your classes but I live in Tennessee so the drive would be a killer.

Thank you for sharing your talent. :)

Wow! So beautiful!!!! (As always!) Love all the textures on the first one, and love how you used the label nestabilities to make the frame for the second one. And, I really like what you're doing with that fancy photo corner punch!!!
