Painted Poppies class projects

Painted Poppies class


Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I run craft classes in my studio on Mondays at 10am, Thursdays at 1.30pm and Saturdays at 2pm, every second week.

This week we will be making 2 cards and a gift bag using the Painted Poppies bundle plus a few other items from the Peaceful Poppies suite from Stampin' Up!

For the first card I created the background with our sponge brayers and flicked on water to create the splatter effect. You can't see in the photo, but I used Wink of Stella on the poppies and also a little Shimmery Crystal Effects.

For the second card I used one of the gorgeous sheets of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper on the card front and used one of the dies to cut out the wreath. Another of the dies was used to cut the white decorative circle for the sentiment.

For both cards I created an insert panel with Whisper White cardstock and stamped one of the poppy images in the corner to finish it off.

For the third project I was inspired by a presentation at the Stampin' Up convention in Sydney in November, where the presenter (I forgot to write her name, sorry) made a box in a bag. Mine is a bit different in that I added the birthday sentiment on another die cut label. This uses one half of another sheet from the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper. You can make 2 of these from one sheet.

If you are local to me at Park Holme, South Australia, you might like to check to see if I have any spots left in one of my classes this week.

If you'd like to make these projects yourself and need some supplies, here are the supplies I used:

Clearance Rack Update!


The Clearance Rack has been updated! Lots of goodies have been added at great discounts, so be quick!

I noticed that the "old" Sizzix versions of some embossing folders are on there - cheaper than ordering the "new" versions that Stampin' Up sells.

I've ordered some bits and pieces this morning to take advantage of the bargains, so go on and have a look now!

Beautiful Friendship for Kylie's Training Group Blog Hop


Thanks for stopping by my blog today. It's time for another blog hop with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world who are part of Kylie's online training program.

My card for the blog hop is one that we created in my last class for the year, focusing on the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.

For this card I used one of the smaller floral images in the set, stamping the trio of flowers on a piece of Whisper White that has been die cut with one of the smaller Stitched Rectangle dies. I stamped the small leaves in a bunch at the bottom of the flowers so that they didn't appear to be "floating".

Behind this piece is a layer of Rococo Rose cardstock that has been embossed with the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. To make the 3D effect stand out more, I used a sponge dauber to apply some Frost White Shimmer Paint to some of the raised areas.

The band and sentiment come from the Band Together stamp set and Detailed Bands Dies bundle, which also has lovely floral images in it. I matted the embossed layer onto a Whisper White layer that I had cut the band out of so as to have no wastage.

I'm happy with the way this turned out, and the ladies enjoyed making it.

Here is the list of people taking part in the blog hop, be sure to hop around and visit different blogs for ideas and inspiration:
