One thing that hasn’t changed for 2018 is my Crafty Creations Classes at the Caloundra Community Center in Queensland Australia. We are a small group, with one new lady, of 11 women who meet every Friday to have fun, make a card or craft item and then share a cuppa at Myrtles Pantry.
Tomorrow is Australia Day so no cards but these are our creations for last week. We used the free stamp set Heartfelt blooms from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
The stamp was inked up with Cherry Cobbler before randomly stamping on Whisper White CS. Then we cut it into 3 unequal parts and mounted it on to Basic Black CS. A piece of Emerald Envy Ribbon was tied across the front with matching bow before being adhered to Emerald Envy CS.
To complete the card the sentiment from the same stamp set was inked in Emerald Envy then run through the big shot with the Stitched Oval Framelit and using Sticky dots tucked under the bow. Just a few pearls finished the card.
This stamp set is the first for Stampin’ Up! using their new line of Distinktive Stamps (Patent Pending) which are stamps that lay down the inks at different levels to get a photographic image.
