Good Karma


Here is the second of three cards for my June Class. However, I couldn't make up my mind on wich card to actually present to them, so I have two samples and will let them choose which one they would like to make.

I like Monochromatic cards and try to have at least one easy to make card for my class each month. 
This card is shades of Grey and white. 
I always seem to have difficulty making masculine cards and thought this one might work. 

I love this elephant and all the stamps in the set. I can see many more cards created with it. You can check out all of the stamps included in this set below.



Rock Candy True Fusion Ink was sponged onto a whip Cream Base through the Starburst Lines Stencil.

Blue Skies Hot Air Balloon Birthday Card


Hi everyone. It's June and time for another of my Monthly Card Classes. Here is the first card of three for my class to make.

I decided to play around with my Gel Press this month for the background. I try and keep it simple with little mess for my classes. 
FSJ's Gel Press is 8.5 x 11 in size, which is perfect for designing FOUR card bases at the same time.  I also used FSJ Liquid Colors and their fabul,ous 6" brayer. So much fun with this brayer with minimal lines.  

I used three FSJ Stamp Sets. The main image is from "Blue Skies", the trees from "Nature Grown" I also used the Happy Birthday and the flying birds for the June 2018 Bloom Box called "Set Sail".

All images are Heat embossed and the entire card is splattered with Sparkle Silk. The clouds are die cut and sponged with Pan Pastels. 

I used the Summer Pretties Punch to make the flower. This punch is retiring the end of this month. BUT, it's on sale for only $8.95 for those of you that would still like to pick up on it. Just click the link for it at the end of this post.

Challenges:
Always Happy Birthday - Summer Birthday
Altered Eclectics - Mixed Media
Craft-Dee Bowz - Hand Made Bow
2 Sisters on the Blog - Colors-Green, Light Blue & Lavender
The Crafters Cafe - White, Twine, Black
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Cottage - Anything Goes
DiesRUs - Sunshine or clouds 
Happy Little Stampers - Use Dies
