Class cards ....

... Morning!  Time for a quick review of some cards made at a recent Stampin' Up! class held at Karin's.  All the cards are CASEd, but I don't have details of the originals - if you recognise your idea - let me know and I'll credit accordingly!  These are from the November class.  I'll start with a card for thanks.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Gently Falling, Truly Grateful
Inks: SU - Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Soft Suede; Versamark
Accessories: SU Card - Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White; Card Thinlits Banner die; SU Ribbon; Clear Embossing Powder

This was such fun to make; I learnt a lovely new technique - faux tiles.  I scored the white panel to create "tiles" and then stamped the images randomly over the card.  Next I inked the panel with Versamark, covered with clear embossing powder and, before heating, I used an embossing tool to clear the powder from the scored lines. The embossing really brings the colours up so brightly.  I finished the inside with a panel stamped with a leaf.  This could be used for Thanksgiving or simply a general thanks card, it's gone into my stash.

Next I have another Thanks card - although I think this one is really more for Thanksgiving.

Stamps:  SU - Wonderful Wreath, Seasonal Sayings, Take Care, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU - Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake; Versamark
Accessories: SU Card - Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Naturals; SU EF - Baroque; Circle Framelits; Gold Embossing Powder; Burlap Ribbon threads

This was another really fun card to make.  Julie demonstrated how to make the wonderful embossed background.  We started with a piece of Very Vanilla card and inked the inside of the embossing folder with Crumb Cake so that there was some colour embossed into the paper.  Next I sponged Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke onto the card creating a real depth of colour.  I then randomly stamped Gorgeous Grunge in Versamark and embossed with Gold powder.  Such a lovely effect.  The wreath was inked up with Crushed Curry and then I added Cajun Craze at the edges of the wreath.  I stamped the sentiment and added a ribbon to the wreath and attached to the card with dimensional tape.  The inside has another wreath, using the second generation impression, and a simple sentiment. 

Our final card at this session was made for Halloween and is an inter-active card.

Stamps:  SU - Halloween Hello, Halloween Bash
Inks: SU - Pumpkin Pie; Stazon - Jet Black
Accessories: SU Card - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, Whisper White; SU DP - Witches Brew; Window Frames Framelits, Peek-a-boo Frames, SU Circle punch; SU Washi Tape; SU Ribbon

The panel on the front was made using the Peek-a-boo frame and attaching it carefully to a white panel, so that the panel can be pulled out using the ribbon.  I forgot to take a photo of the stamped panel - it has images of candy and a witch on it!!  This one is in my stash for next year.

That's all for this morning - I'm off to the hair dresser today to have my hair done - I really enjoy being pampered!!  I hope to take photos of the cards I made at yesterday's session to share with you soon.  Have a good day.
