Hearts come Home and Night in Bethlehem

 Lots of techniques in this class. The first is applying ink with an aquapainter on to shimmery white cardstock. The colours used were night of navy, dapper denim and bermuda bay. The starry effect is splatters of wink of stella. The stamp set is Night in Bethlehem.

A second Night in Bethlehem card using a sponging technique with pool party, and soft suede inks.
I added some rhinestones to the stars for extra bling.

Thanks to Monica Gale for the original card that this one was cased from. You can view it HERE. As you can see her card was done in Basic Grey. I wanted to use the gorgeous night of navy gingham ribbon. Whisper white re inker with water was flicked across the card with some wink of stella.

The last card was cased from a video on You Tube HERE. I used flirty flamingo, berry burst and fresh fig inks. The starry sky was made with tombow mixed with water. This was flicked across the cardstock and then I applied some dazzling diamonds for bling.

Season Like Christmas

Season Like Christmas class this morning and we all got very inky fingers.
First up is a rustic card using pear pizzazz, old olive  and soft suede ink pads with a bit of gold embossing to highlight the central tree.

The second card is stamped with old olive, garden green and soft suede. A bit of paper tearing adds to the rustic look with some rhinestones for bling coloured with the old olive blends marker.

Another simple single tree stamped in wild wasabi and garden green with cherry cobbler for the sentiment. I added some gold embossing to the baubles to make them stand out more.

Thanks fo to Michelle Last and Teri Pocock for the inspiration for this card. Always artichoke, garden green and early espresso were used for the trees. Pool party, pacific point and night of navy were used for the sky.

Painted Harvest

There are so many easy but eye catching cards that you can do with this set.
The first card is very simple but a touch of Gold Embossing with those tiny spots just finished it off.
Colours used for the sunflower were Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie.

I used gold Embossing Powder for the centre of the three sunflowers in the next card and for the sentiment. The gold Mini Sequin Trim just set it off.

This colour combination was the favourite with my class ladies -  Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate.

I loved the colour combos in the last two cards and I used these for my Customer Thank You Cards last month. Melon Mambo with Berry Burst in the first and Tempting Turquoise with Dapper Denim in the second.

Hearts Come Home Bundle

I held a class recently using the Hearts Come Home Bundle. We made a similar version of the card below which was cut out using the Lots Of Labels Framelits.
The sentiment comes in the set. I highlighted one house with red and yellow cardstock behind it.
The retired Gorgeous Grunge Set was used for the starry sky.

The second card is an example of a simple thank you card that you can make with the stamps.
It was cased from the Catalogue.
I love the plume of smoke stamp which adds character to the card.

The next card was the most popular in the class. I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for the layers of snow and applied Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
The stars and moon were die cut using a Die from The Card Front Builder Set.

The last card was also cased from the Catalogue with an added white scallop oval frame added
