Sheltering Tree and Big Day – cards from February card class

By | March 30, 2015

Hi there

I got a bit busy last week preparing for our Creative Inkers Extravaganza.  I left a few too many things to do in the last week which meant no blogging time!  Before I can show you the project I taught I need to do a catch up on what I’ve taught at my last two card classes.

Here’s what we did at our February class.  The first card uses the set Sheltering Tree from the Occasions Catalogue and the second card uses Big Day from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

I found this card design on Debbie Henderson’s blog and fell in love with it.

It’s not just a pretty card – it’s a card with a perforated bookmark attached.  I’d purchased the perforating blade when it came out but had never used it.  I think this is such a cool card and I can’t wait to trail some other designs.  I did change the inside image to the one Debbie had used otherwise I kept the colours and general layout of the images.

Stamp – Sheltering Tree, Crazy about You
Card Stock – Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink – Old Olive, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso, Momento Black
Other – Perforating Blade, Early Espresso Bakers Twine

I also CASED the second card from a fellow team member Kathe but made a few tweaks to use the new ColorBox Chalk ink from the Occasions Catalogue.

To get the ‘legs’ of my blackboard I used the Square Framelits so that they were even and cut through both layers at the same time.
Stamp – Big Day, Hardwood
Card Stock – Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Naturals White, Chalkboard Paper
Ink – Rose Coral Chalk Ink, Crumb Cake, Black Momento Ink
DSP – Lullaby
Other – Banner Punch, Square Framelits, Early Espresso Baker Twine
