I have made three cards for my card class this Thursday night. All three of them are made using the Stippled Blossoms set. It is a really lovely set, that my friend, Anne Farrar, recommended to me. She made the most gorgeous card that she let me copy.
Stippled Blossoms is called a two-step stamping set. That means you stamp an image with a light colour first and then use the second stamp in a darker colour and it gives a lovely darker outline.
The first card is made with three images from the Stippled Blossoms set and then fussy cut. Fussy cutting is a fancy word for 'hand cutting'! I put the background through the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and cut the oval out with the Oval Framelits. I then stamped the greeting with the set: Memorable moments. It's a great set, as you can stamp any age greeting to make a card for a special occasion.
The second card is an ode to two retiring colours; Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy. It was super easy to make. I just stamped the greeting from the set Field Flowers and the flower from Stippled Blossoms.
For the third card, I wanted to use the paper doilies in the Seasonal Catalogue. I stamped the background using the Netting background stamp. The two colours used were Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.
As I mentioned, I will be holding a class this Thursday night (7pm, 30th May) and I will repeat the class on 22nd June at 2pm. We will be making 6 cards with matching envelopes for $20.
