Class Cards in more detail.......

*This is a BUTTERFLIES & FLOWERS promotion post. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

Good Morning all,

How are we all today, well I hope?

As you know by now we the ladies made two lovely cards at my last workshop based on these two cards and the theme this month being Butterflies and Flowers. Now I don't know about you but I love these two subjects and never have any trouble coming up with inspiration for it and there are some fabulous stamps, dies and stencils out there at the moment. We also heavily featured Anna Marie Designs Dottie backing card in the cards and many of the other samples so you will see this also featured over the next few weeks.....

To give you a little more detail about the cards........
In the first card that they made the ladies stamped the dottie background with Anna Marie Designs Special Birthday Stamp. They also cut away an embossed background and used Diamond Sparkle Medium to stipple foil over the top of it and also the butterflies and flowers. 
The gorgeous dottie card is Lavender lace and the butterflies dies used were Cheery Lynn Butteflies.....

The second card they made was a stamped and paper pieced card using the lovely Jane Gill Stamps, I have to say I always love Jane's stamps, they are so usable.....

An aperture was cut in the dottie card and then the main image of the Burst in Bloom was stamped in the centre with Onyx Black Versafine ink and then embossed with Wow Clear sparkle powder.
They then coloured the image with Pro-Markers and then the stamped and embossed image of the flowers on the dottie card was cut out, stipple foiled with the Sparkle Medium again and 3d'd on to the card.
The dottie used on this card was Powder Pink.........

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration and I will be back on Saturday to bring you some more. Have a go at the give-away, leave your comments each day...... there is always a winner!

Have a great day, big hugs......
