Triple Time Stamping with Flower Shop

The triple time stamping technique has been around for a little while, and I finally got to try it out with the new Flower Shop stamp set.  This was another card that we made at my class during the weekend.  We used some on the new In Colours to make these cards too.  And thanks to Karen Rogers blog post, I was able to use her metric measurements to make these cards.


Stamps: Flower Shop, Express Yourself (Hostess Set)

Cardstock: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush & Coastal Cabana or Crisp Cantaloupe & Coastal Cabana

Ink: Strawberry Slush & Coastal Cabana or Crisp Cantaloupe & Coastal Cabana

Other: Pansy Punch, Candy Dots, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive/Tombow

Thanks for dropping by.

Another Washi Tape Card and the Label Love Stamp Set

On Saturday afternoon I had my monthly card class.  We had three new ladies join us our class.  We had lots of fun using some of the new products from the new catalogue.

Here is a card we made featuring washi tape and the new Label Love stamp set with the matching punch.   This is cased from Leonie Schroder


Stamps: Label Love

Cardstock: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush

Ink: Bermuda Bay

Other:  Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape, Bermuda Bay Twine (from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit), Artisan Label Punch, Dimensionals, Adhesive

The washi tape is so quick and easy to use.  I have used the Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape for this card, but it also comes in another colour which is great for more masculine and not so bright projects.

Washi Tape Card

Sorry that it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted.  It has been school holidays so I have been busy with my kids.  During that time I also had a couple of Kid's Craft Classes which went really well.  The kids enjoyed the classes and I did too.  If you would like to see what we made, click here If you have a group of children keen to make what we made in the holidays, please contact me and I can hold a repeat class during the weekend.  I hope to do have classes again during the next holidays (September) with some new things to make, so if you would like to take part, please let me know and remember to ask about them closer to the time.

I have also been getting ready for my monthly card class which is this coming weekend.  One of the cards we will make will feature washi tape.  I love this new colourful, repositionable tape.

I will post the card will be make in my class once I have had the class, but I wanted to have some other samples cards using washi tape too, so this is one of them.  I have CASed it from Sharlene Meyers.

The washi tape adds some colour to the card.  I also like the way a few simple lines scored with the Simply Scored Tool adds some texture to the card.

Stamp Sets: Express Yourself (Hostess stamp set)
Card Stock: Island Indigo, Whisper White
Ink: Island Indigo
Other: Gingham Garden Designer Washi tape, Simply Scored, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Kids' Holiday Craft Class

My children are still at school this week.  Their holidays start next week, but some schools get a three week holiday are already on holiday this week.  So this afternoon I held my first kids' holiday craft class.  The children had a lot of fun and enjoyed making these two projects. 

Project One: Pen/pencil holder - They decorated their holders with some owls made from a punch, did some stamping and sponging and used the "Big Shot" to create some texture on their branches.

Project Two: Box - They were each able to make one of these boxes.  Once they put it together, they used stamps and punches to decorate it.

I am also holding a repeat of this class next week on Tuesday 16th July.  More details are here.   

If have a group of children (minimum four) who interested in making these projects, but are not able to make the class, please let me know and we can try and arrange another time to do it, at my place or yours.
