All Occasion Card Class

Hello again. I hope you were able to follow the blog hop on Thursday. Wow - there are so many talented ladies out there! Today I wanted to post pics of three of the cards we made in the All Occasion Card Class from last weekend. We actually made six cards and I will post pics of the other cards later as I will be using them in Stamp Club this week.

Here's a clean and simple birthday card I will be using for a child's birthday:

This card uses the cheery and bright colours of tempting turquoise, real red, pumpkin pie and daffodil delight. The whisper white layer is embossed with the stripes embossing folder. The real red and daffodil delight strips are embossed with the polka dot folder. The happy birthday image is from the set Bring on the Cake and can be used for any age. Mini brads accent the corners that have been punched out using the ticket corner punch.

This next card uses some new techniques I have been trying out:

The colours used here are soft suede, pretty in pink and the Beau Chateau DSP. The DSP was trimmed using the new Adorning Accents edgelits die. The sentiment is very vanilla layered on pretty in pink that has been cut using the second smallest die from the Labels Collection framelit. This small piece was then embossed using the oval frame from the Designer Frames Textured Impressions. It was pretty fussy work trying to keep the embossing folder centered on such a small frame but the effect is sooo pretty! The tiny bow was created by tying a fork bow. I love doing these bows. The basic pearls have been coloured using a permanent marker and add a nice little touch to such a delicate looking card.

Finally, this card was made as a sympathy card but could be used for other occasions as well:

The idea for this card came from Pinterest (my newest addiction!!) and the origin was from the blog of I modified my version to be SUO (Stampin' Up! only). The colours used are are bashful blue, certainly celery and whisper white. It is hard to see in the picture but the centre of the card has been scored twice vertically with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. The right side has been embossed using the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. The flowers are from the set Love & Sympathy. We coloured the flowers using markers, stamped off on the grid paper once and then on to the card stock for a faded look. The second flower was stamped directly onto the card stock after colouring. The butterflies were made using the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings embosslit die. Some basic pearls accent the scored centre of the card.

I hope you like these projects. My next post will be of the cards made in Stamp Club this week. Thanks for stopping by!!
