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.

Cheers
Kez

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?
