I thought it was about time we said farewell to the whites and sombre winter greys, and welcomed Spring with a dash of colour. What better way than with the perfect symbol of Spring... flowers.
For this class I went for bright cheery colours - Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizazz. Each card uses a different stamp from the 'Punched Posies' stamp set.
First up we have this circle of flowers and sentiment. It actually opens up because it's a card. Isn't it sweet? I know this brighten someone's day if they received it.
Next up we have the card that looks like a flower pot. But lift up the flowers and this is what you'll see...
This idea came form one of the ladies that attends my classes. She kindly lent me the magazine she found the idea in (Thanks Wanda!) so I could make my own. I think it is adorable!
Last but not least is this card...
It's a bit difficult to see in the photo but the flowers that I punched out have been embossed using a technique called Inlaid Embossing. It adds a bit of texture and makes the flowers pop. I also love the scrunched ribbon with the glitter brad. Cute, cute, cute!
So there we have it. If you'd like to send Winter on it's way, class details follow:
Dates: Wednesday 16th/ Thursday 17th march, from 7 - 9.30pm.
