Pretty In Pink

The cards for this month's class feature SU's gorgeous range of pinks. Check them out:

This one was inspired by a Mary Fish creation and is not only a flip card but a gift card holder as well.

 Materials used:
  • stamps - Simply Sketched
  • card - pink pirouette, smoky slate, whisper white, subtles patterned paper
  • punches - dotted scallop ribbon border,  2 1/2" circle
  • other - rhinestones, circle framelits, silver trim 1/8" ribbon, delicate designs embossing folder, Big Shot, circle card thinlits 

Although I'm not usually into the brights range, the lovely colour combination and simple design of a card by Alisa Tilsner really appealed to me, so I have cased it for my next project.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Simply Stars, Banner Blast, Four You
  • card - melon mambo, whisper white
  • punches - banner, large star
  • other - white bakers twine, dimensionals, decorative dots embossing folder, Big Shot, sponge dauber, melon mambo embossing powder, heat tool

And lastly some simple brayering on a card that reminds us that we are losing a lot if we look only for perfection.

Materials used:
  • Perfect Pennants, Mosaic Madness
  • card - blushing bride, early espresso, whisper white
  • punches - mosaic, itty bitty
  • other - brayer, dimensionals, rhinestones, sponge dauber, stamp-a-ma-jig, Tombow glue

It felt really good to be crafting again and I was greatly relieved to get these three done in a day - as it's the only day I have free between now and the class! Lol. Teaching and studying are keeping me VERY busy and I usually only visit the craft room to do some homework these days!

I have a couple of weekends to look forward to though - this coming weekend DD15 and I are off to see Michael Buble in concert and the following weekend we are going to Melbourne to visit DD22 and see Wicked! Can't wait!

Thanks for calling in.

Such a great range of cards Kez. I love the flip card as a gift card holder. Your brayering is simply stunning, of course!! Hope to see you in Melbourne if you are attending convention?
