PERFECT PEACOCK CARD CLASS

HEY BLOGGIES,

We had so much fun today at our PERFECT PEACOCK card class.  It was the first time for everyone to come to class at my new location out in the country.  They all commented how quiet and peaceful it is.  That is one of my favorite things about our new home.  The peace and all the nature.

Here are the cards we created today before we had our YUMMY LUNCHEON.

ANOTHER DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

I have another DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD CARD for you today.  This is such an easy card that packs a big WOW!!

I used this sketch by Elizabeth Harris at SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY:

AND for MOJO MONDAY SKETCH here:



I explained a bit more about this card on my previous post HERE.  I am loving this type of card because it is easy to make and packs a big WOW!

Here the two side panels are opened but the top is flipped back in the closed position.

Here the top is flipped up and you can see how the two side panels are just half the size of the card front.
This style card is my thank you card for everyone who orders from me during August.

Thank you for visiting today.  Please stop back again soon for more creations.,

PERFECT PEACOCK

HEY BLOGGIES,

I just opened my new PERFECT PEACOCK large single stamp from SU! and couldn't wait to start using it.  I tackled a HUGE IDEA for my first card with this adorable stamp:

 First photo above is the peacock stamped on very vanilla and the tail stamped on a piece of patterned paper and then fussy cut out and added with dimensionals.  I also added some light grey shading with my aqua painter and ink.  The sequins are random colors from a generic pack I had.  The body is wisteria wonder using the aqua painter again, and then shading added with a marker.

 Then I began auditioning background layers to see which one I liked,  Here is pink pirouette.  OOOh, I like this soft look.

 Next I auditioned wisteria wonder.  That looks very soft and nice also.  Makes the peacock body stand out more, don't you think?

 Next I tried rose red and I am really liking this.  It is a big more saturated in color than the other two I previously tried.  Yes, this is definitely on my list.

 I ended up going with calypso coral.  And I created my sentiment with that same color.  I think it brought out more brightness of the sequins and was a good contrast to the pink roses.  I even added some coral in the rose shading to bring that color in more and have it stand out.  What do you think?  I believe ANY of those layers would have made a wonderful card and I might even make some more and do each of those colors.



Thanks for stopping by.  I will share the other cards we make in my Perfect Peacock card class this weekend, so please stop back by, won't you?

YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY

hey bloggies,

 YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY is the perfect card for my hubby for our anniversary this week.  I used the splatter stamp from GORGEOUS GRUNGE by SU!  for the background and then the sunshine  rays behind the light bulb in crushed curry.  The light bulb was fussy cut and put on dimensionals, with the heart in the middle in melon mambo ink.


Made this larger so you could see the details of my card.



This is another card that was quick and easy card with the background and sentiment stamp from this set.  I stamped the background rays 4 times to make a circle and put the sentiment in the middle on some DSP and layered grey behind it.  I added some square sequins randomly around the card to finish off a clean and simpole card,.

I MISS YOU.......WATTS & WATTS

HEY BLOGGIES,

Another fun light bulb card to share with you today.

 I had so much fun cutting the paper for the light rays from the light bulb.  The polka dots on black is one piece of paper.  The solid color rays are cut pieces  placed around the stamped and cut out bulb.

 Candy dots were placed randomly around the card and in the middle of the heart on the bulb.

The banner is pupped up on dimensionals for added texture.

Here is the inside of the card finishing off the saying, "I Miss you...Watts & Watts".  That cracks me up!!  LOVE IT.  Some hearts finish off the inside.

I made this and sent it to my Grandkids in Utah.  They were here a few weeks ago to visit and I am really missing them.  I wanted them to know how much I love and miss them!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back again to see another card with this set.  I am having so much fun with this set WATTS UP  by SSS.

WATTS UP?

HEY BLOGGIES,

Today I have a different kind of entry for you - this is not a Stampin' Up! set that I used but I fell in love with this set when I saw it and just have been having the best fun using it!!

 Isn't this light bulb just the cutest?!!  I am loving it and have made three or four cards with it this weekend.  Stay tuned for more postings this week using this stamp set and papers.

 
 I used some generic sequins on this card to add some shine or bling which it just needed since it is a light bulb shining, right?  I love this striped paper and cut it to have the chevron part just a little bit off center.  I also made the main piece a little bit taller than the card for some visual effects.  I just basically thought it needed to look like this.  What do you think?


Here is a closeup of the banner popped up with dimensionals.  Another look I felt it needed and I love how it looks,.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back again to see some more cards with this stamp set.
