Card Class Projects

Hi All

We had our 2nd class today at Basingstoke Sea Cadets and Community Centre so I would like to share the projects we worked on using Build A Birthday and Butterfly Basics stamp sets.


The cityscape is created by using the edge of the stamp pad and only inking parts of the stamps. You can also use the masking technique to achieve the same results. I thought the scenery would look great as a 'polaroid picture' which is why the measurement of the Very Vanilla card is 10cmx13.5cm.


Excuse the ink marks as the card fell straight on top of the ink pad during class! It's a quick and simple male card which is CASEd from our last team training with Queen Pip. By using torn paper to mask the top and bottom edges, the images looks like Washi Tape or you can use actual washi tape for an even quicker card.


The wire mesh and fern were stamped for the background before the main floral image which was then coloured using Stampin' Markers. The mats on the picture is Lost Lagoon but the ladies used Mint Macaron on the day to match the lovely Dotted Lace Trim. The Triple Banner punch was also used for the sentiment.


We prepared a 4th project which was Barry's swap for Telford but we ran out of time so Barry talked through the card and how to build up the scene.

Hopefully the ladies enjoyed the class as much as we did. What do you think of our projects?

Thanks for stopping by

Barry & Jay
