Craft Afternoon

I held my regular monthly craft group of Saturday and had a wonderful group of ladies come along.

We worked on four cards. I was really surprised how different they all turned out.  As usual with the classes the instructions given out are all the same but depending on the interpretation of the instructions and different papers used the cards  were so different.

For the first card we used a selection of Designer Series Papers, the smaller tag from the Bigz Dies, Two Tags and the You Mean the World 2 me stamp from the Word Play stamp set.

Some ladies used a black stampin write marker to draw a stitching line and others used a piercing tool and black pen to create stitching. 

The next card was designed for a childs card. 

We used papers from the Designer Series Papers - Big Top Birthday

The birds were made using the tail from the Bigz Die - Elegant Bird and eyes using the crop a dile and a white gel pen.

The next card was made using Poppy Parade card stock and ink, a flower from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and the flourish from the stamp set Elements of Style.

Both of these cards were made using Poppy Parade ink, but the right hand card had more ink used for inking the flower.  They are both so different.

The final card was from a training day with Jacquline.  She showed us how to create this card using the Bigz Die - Elegant Bird. 

This one was a real hit with the ladies, they were quite impressed with the die and how we were able to create 2 quite different cards using the same die.

Well done ladies, it was such a great day.
