Online Card Classes: Stenciled2 Day 10

 Day 10 of Stenciled 2 at Online Card Classes had a lesson from Yana Smakula. I've just purchased the die she used in her card, but it hasn't arrived yet, but this blossom die from Paper Rose fit the bill perfectly!

Online Card Classes: Stenciled 2 day 8


I had a bit of a setback in completing my homework for Online Card Classes (it's difficult to make cards while wearing a brace on your hand) but I'm catching up now!

I made these two cards following Jennifer McGuire and Shari Carroll's lessons on Day 8. 

 I used a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop on this card that is sadly discontinued

Sweet Berries for Hero Arts

Yesterday, I went with some friends to the Queen Victoria Market here in Melbourne (for those of you who are not Australian, the Queen Vic is the largest outdoor market in the southern hemisphere).  I saw plenty of strawberries, but didn't actually buy any, so I will have to make do with these berries from Hero Arts!

Elephant and teacups for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a quick and easy card using die cut images from Paper Rose.

I started with a piece of Peony cardstock from Hero Arts and embossed it with the Baby Blue embossing folder, and adhered it to a white card base. I popped out five diecut teacup images from the Sending Hugs diecut set, and adhered them across the card (I popped the one with the elephant  up with foam tape). I finished with a sentiment from the Rainbow Poppies sentiment set.

Online Card Class: Stenciled 2 Day 6

Day 6 was all about dry embossing with stencils. For Kristina Werner Hansen's class, I pulled out a stencil from Tim Holtz that I haven't used in a VERY long time.

For Caly Person's class, I used a mandala stencil from Paper Rose in the background and some flowers and a die cut sentiment from Altenew over the top.

Rainbow alcohol pearls

Last month, I had a couple of crafty friends, Deb and Donna, over for a day of fun and friendship. Honestly, we just talked and talked and talked, but got a little bit of crafty stuff done as well. It was fabulous!

Both of my friends brought products with them that I could play with, so I put some of them together on this card.

Online Card Classes: Stenciled 2 Day 4

Day 4 of the current Online Card Class was about layering stencils. Jennifer McGuire used layering stencils on coloured cardstock, and Dawn Woleslagle used foiling on one of her stencil layers. 

I don't have a very large selection of layering stencils, so I used what I had!
