Second Quick Card 2012

I was under the gun to get this card done. I thought I had all morning to finish putting something together but I ran out of time. Read my other blog if you want more of the back story of what made me lose so much time on Friday.

Quick Card - Memory Box Die

Related Posts with ThumbnailsI looked all over for this die at one of my friends studio last week. I think this is the only thing she didn't have. I gave up and hours before my card class was suppose to start, I found it in my stash of stuff. Not sure when I got it since I don't buy a whole lot of supplies anymore but I had it. It's a simple card and one the ladies at the Senior Center could do super fast. Memory Box branch die, flower punch from the Japanese dollar store.

Clean and Simple or CAS

Related Posts with ThumbnailsI've been helping a friend organize and clean up her very large craft studio. She has almost everything rubber stamp and scrapbooking related. Last night I went over while she was out of town to borrow the new Memory Box branch die. I was sure if anyone had it, she did. I wanted to make a sample invitation for an up coming event. So I called head to make sure someone was home to let me in and began my search. After a few text messages to people who have been in her studio, I was amazed she doesn't have it yet. It must be so new she hasn't seen it.
I did find this flower stamp set that comes with a matching die cut. Very hard to line  up the die, so I ended up cutting it out by hand. You can't tell they are pop dotted up from the photo but that does add a little something.  This card is in honor of Susan from simplicity who does the best CAS cards. I really want to put more embellishment on the card but keeping true to CAS had to resist the temptation.

Simple Washi Paper Card Class

Related Posts with ThumbnailsI will be doing a "Simple Washi Paper" card class at Cranberry Hill in June. We haven't confirmed the date yet but we have penciled in
Sunday, June 3, 2012 from 1:00 - 3:00. Class fee is $20.00.

I've done this class in the past and it's a great one for beginners. You learn basic iris folding and what to do with all those washi paper scraps you can't throw away. The cards are simple and fast which is always fun to make.
