I have been making cards for classes but I don't know why I have been forgetting to take pictures of them before I take them to the store to display them! So today I took several pictures. You'll see some of my new creations and also some great pen pal cards I have received this month. I will be posting pics of the cards I get from now on. I should have been doing that all along!
So this first card I is very simple. I did this in my Misting with Markers class this month. There's a great tutorial on SCS found here. The cardstock is all from Stampin' Up. The top layer is raised with dimensionals and the scallop circle is done with a scallop punch. The dragonflies are on white cardstock and then placed under the green layer. Very simple card....
The next card is from the same class and also done using the same technique. I love this card and how the colors turned out. I forgot to mention that I use Staedler markers. I love them! They have pointed spongy type tip instead of a fiberous tip. It's great because it will always keep the pointy tip.
This card is for my Pearl Ex-Painted Pearls class this month. Again here is a very easy tutorial. I had a hard time finding Future Floor Wax initially until I found out they changed the name and now go under the name Pledge with Future Shine. Very easy and fun technique. Using the pearl ex gives the cards a great shimmer and the nice thing is that you don't have to seal the card with you are done. The floor wax does that for you!This card was also for my Pearl Ex class. It was easier to do than the first because it has bigger open spaces in which to color. The scallop circle is done using my Cuttlebug and the "thank you" is raised with a pop dot.
This one is from the Misting with Markers class. I used Tapestry stamps for the background and a stamp that has 4 different sides on a wooden block. I can't remember where that one is from; sorry! The butterfly is stamped on purple cardstock and then cut out and adhered to the card.
I wish I could take a better picture of this card, but my camera isn't the greatest. These butterflies are so cute and I love the size of the card. It's 3x6". The scalloped circles are cut out with my Cuttlebug and the purple circles are punched out. The butterflies are stamped on white watercolor paper, colored and then cut out. I used a lid to one of my bowls to make the curved cut on the front of the card.
This one is from Pearl in Montana. I love that little bee and the little details she added. Thanks Pearl!!!This one is from Bergen in Ohio. The ladybug looks like it was punched out. It's so cute! And then happiness is done on a separate piece of cardstock and adhered under the top layer. I'm pretty sure she used an oval punch on the top layer. Thanks Bergen!!!! And this card is from Liz in Texas! I love monkeys! He is super cute!!! Thanks Liz!!!!
