Shutter Cards......

It was my turn to Demo at Craft Club last night. I had asked my friend Janette, for ideas of something to Demo and she requested a Shutter Card.

So here's the ones I made to Demonstrate. The first one is using the Live Your Dream stamp set, as we were using that Stamp set in my Class today. The tall flowers were coloured in using Stampin Up Markers, Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke. I have a couple of spaces left in my Marker Club if anyone is interested. Email me for all the details.

The papers are Tea & Crumpets.

You can watch a video over at Beates Blog - Fresh & Fun Here.

Or you can see step by step photo's over at SCS Here.

The next two Shutter Cards are using the Soft Summer Stamp Set which is only available until 30th September when the mini catalogue finishes. The papers are also from the mini called Tea Party. The sentiments are Oval All (Punched out using the Large and Scallop Oval Punches) and the Curvy Verses.
For these two I decided to add a back section, which I edges with the Scallop Edge Border punch.
This one is also using the Tea Party Papers plus The Playful Petals Stamp set. I stamped the flowers on the cardstock using versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then they were layered up to make a medallion.
This is the inside with Sincere Salutations sentiment. The two white buttons are from the mini catalogue.
Saying Good Bye to FLAKY FRIENDS.......AND............WINTERGREEN PAPERS.

This was the Make & Take card our Club made last night. One of my favourite Z fold cards.

You need half a sheet of A4 cut lengthways. Fold in half and then fold the front back to the left and crease with the bone folder. The Flaky Friends were stamped on whisper white and coloured in using the Stampin Up Markers - 8cm x 7cm.

The papers were Wintergreen and measured 10cm x 6.9cm.

The Real Red layer was 10.5cm x 7.5cm, each side was edged with the scallop edge border punch. The circle of friendship sentiment was stamped on whisper white in Real Red and cut out using the 1" circle punch, then layered on to 1 1/4" & 1 3/8". 3D foam pads are only added to the far side of these circles layers, that way the front section can slip behind them........

This is the inside. The whisper white layer is 14.3cm x 10cm and each side was stamped with the snowflakes in Sage Shadow. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red.

The Stamp Set and Papers are only available until 30th September and none of the Last Chance List will go in the New Catalogue this Year.

If you have paid for your copy of the NEW catalogue, they will be sent out hopefully by the 30th September. Email me if you want to go on the list.

Thanks for looking,

What a co-incidence! I'm in the process of making one for my eagerly awaited first grand-daughter! I'm glad I didn't finish it, as yours are way better than mine, so I'll be re-doing my earlier one.
Everything you make is an absolute joy.
