Wetlands Seascapes

Had great fun with these ladies. Donna attends my classes but usually just makes one card and then visits and enjoys the other ladies company...the last class she stepped it up...and this one, she surprised everyone, mostly herself by completing FOUR cards! : D

 I created the class using the Wetlands stamp set. Vickie actually sent me a few Pinterest pins to help design the class ~ this is such a great set for masculine cards. Great timing for Father's Day. We worked on a couple techniques, making the seascape cards! Gorgeous!
 I modified the wonderful Goose card to represent our returning Geese in the Spring...the card I was copying was done in Fall colours by Lisa Young.

Starburst Sayings

I've been meaning to send a Thank you to Carrie Marcelin from the Calgary (Canada) Stampin'Up! office for over a year! She is awesome and is wonderful to me. ...I finally got my poop in a group and made this up for her. 
I used the great Thank you set in Photopolymer for the background...I attached the plastic sheet the stamps come on to my largest block and inked the entire set to make the 'random stamped' background.
Mixing circles and my latest favourite, Starburst Framelits, I put together the rest of the card. I even used the same circles to decorate the inside of the card and give space to write my thanks to her!

I was pleased with how it turned out, an original: by Me! : D

Backyard Basics Class

Had a fun class using a retiring set Backyard Basics. Everything from the class on the three cards were on the Retiring Hit List...including this In-Colour that is on it's way out. This is a great set, very sorry to see it going.

Lets face it, although I'm all for change and new things...I'm sad to see all the components on this card on the way out. The embossing folders are favourites and this mini Doily! (boohoo)
