April class - sneak peak

I've been having another play with my goodies and have come up with some cards for the next class.  We'll be using the Greenhouse Garden Stamp set and using the sentiments from the Occasional Greetings set.

The main colours will be Old Olive, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie, though I have thrown in Early Expresso for good measure.

We're going to be making 3 cards - a top fold C6 card.

A side fold C6 card.

And a twisted easel card - these are my favourite at the moment.  So easy to make but look so good.

I've paid my deposit at the venue so it's all systems go getting ready for the class.

It's going to be at the Millenium Hall, Burbage on Saturday 16th April from 1pm to 4pm.

Can't wait! x

My first make

I managed to have a quick play with my starter kit yesterday, it is a friends birthday so an ideal opportunity to get going.  I used Early Espresso as my base card, which is a C6 card with the fold at the top.  I really like this style as it seems to stand better.  The paper is from the Patterns Designer Series paper pack, Pumpkin Pie.  I have used the largest stamp from the Baroque Motifs stamp set with a Real Red inkpad.  I cut a strip from the Real Red card and stamped Happy Birthday from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.

I can see where I could have made it better but for my first attempt I'm pretty pleased.  The colours look really lovely together.  I used the Color Coach to help me.  I didn't think I would like the Pumpkin Pie but actually it does go.

I'm off to have another play now, more pictures to follow

I've taken the plunge

Well, I've decided just to go for it and become a Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  Eek!

My starter kit arrived yesterday and is currently taking over the whole of the kitchen table.  I can't wait to get stuck in and make some samples.  Pictures to follow.

Thank you Linz for taking me under your wing :) x
