Butterfly Card & New Techniques

Happy Sunday everyone!

This is blog post 2 of 3 .. I’m going for a hat trick today 😉

I have been playing around all morning with the different/new techniques I learned yesterday when I attended  the Card Making Workshop at Stampers Grove Thanks to Yvonne for teaching and James & Emma for hosting the workshop in their craft store

The first card I made is using a new butterfly trio stamp set that I bought whilst I was at the class, it stamps beautifully!



and here is the card I created, using the new folding and cutting out technique from the workshop

and here is a different view so you can see it from a different angle..

I made the next card yesterday in class, and today I finished it off by applying holographic embossing powder and some colour to the body, this is another gorgeous stamp.. you can find it here

the technique here is you stamp the image direct to the card base, then cut around the wings with a craft knife to give your card added dimension… cant wait to try this again, I will need to have a nose in my stamp vault to see if what stamps would lend themselves for this type of card 🙂

I also made another one of these cards using a stampin up heart stamp

Then I had a go at a pop out card, this is supposed to be a stack of presents, you could also do a stacked cake..

I had so much fun learning things yesterday, now to put them all into practice!

I’ll be back later tonight with Shabby Sunday
