Rainy Days and Mondays!

We seem to be having another rainy Monday here – so much for the British Summer!
Today I am going to show you a couple of the cards the lovely ladies who came to my class on Saturday made.
This first card is a version of a card I have shown you before – I just love this image from the Summer By the Sea Stamp Set and the ladies enjoyed making this unusual shaped card. The card is Always Artichoke and Natural Ivory and the image has been coloured using watercolour wonder crayons in So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke. The image is mounted on a layer of Natural Ivory stamped in Pretty in Pink on Natural Ivory using a stamp from the Pocket Silhouettes Set.
Next we made this card using the adorable Crazy for Cupcakes Stamp set. The colours used are Brocade Blue, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip. The background was created using the Canvas Background Stamp and one of the small flowers from the One of A Kind Stamp Set. The icing on the cake was stamped twice and mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals, while a glow from the candle was added to the base layer using a sponge dauber.

The colour combination makes this card suitable for either a man or a woman.

I am so lucky that I have such a lovely group of ladies who come to my classes. If you would like to join them the next monthly class is on Saturday 22 August at 2pm when we will be making cards for all reasons. Between now and then there is also the first to the two Get Ready For Christmas Parties. on August 15th – that is shaping up to be a lot of fun and I may have some sneak peaks for you later this week. Don’t forget you need to book this all day party by the 1st August – at the party you will make at least 35 Christmas Cards, a Christmas Planner and at least 10 gift tags. You can find out all about the Get Ready For Christmas Parties here.

Thank you for stopping by
