Beautiful Wings Birthday Card

Here is the third and last card for my April Card Class.
Since the first two were more time consuming, I needed to make the last one quick and easy for them to make. 

I cut a scalloped border on the bottom of a white panel and stamped the April Bloom Box Stamp with the two daisies across the bottom with Cool Pool Ink.

The Happy Birthday, from Embroidered Greetings was stamped at the top with Blue Lagoon Ink. 

The Butterfly is a three step stamp and I used Turbo Teal, Cool Pool and Blue Lagoon inks to stamp all layers. I actually stamped two butterflies and glued them back to back for more stability. 

Splattered the card and butterfly with Cool Pool and Turbo Teal Silks. 

To finish off the card, I tied it up with Journey Beach Breeze thread and some Blue Skies Sequins.

Beautiful Day Pink Daisy Card

Thanks for stopping by. Here is the second of my three cards for my April Card Class.

My card uses the Love Life Stamp Set that is in the FSJ April Bloom Box. Unfortunately, this beautiful set is only available until April 31st. 
This is similar to one of the cards in the kit, but I put my own spin on it. 

The cardstock and ink for the flowers is Outrageous Pink. It's actually from the Be Amazing Collection.

White cardstock was dry embossed using the FSJ Diamond Netting Folder.  Then splattered with Gold Silk. Some was also splattered on the sentiment tag.

The Flowers were stamped with thTe Outrageous Pink True Fusion Ink and the leaves were colored in with the Journey Color Burst Pencils

The Fern leaves were cut with Sweet Pear Cardstock using the Timeless Foliage Steel Rule Die. 

The tag was cut from Everyday Tags, a Die Set that will be retiring the end of June. 

The Sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I added some of the Clear Pigment ink around the edges of the tag also, and used the same Gold Embossing Powder. 

As a finishing touch, I added Journey Lemongrass Thread under the one flower and added Journey glaze and Sparkle cuts in the center of each flower.

Gold Gilding Flakes Cards

Well, I've been away for the past three month and now I'm back with my class cards for April. 


Gilding flakes are fun to play with but can be quite messy if you're not careful. I have found out through, that the Leaf Foils from Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ), are less messy then other brands. The sheets are larger and easier to handle. This is perfect for teaching my classes where so many people will be using it at the same time.  And for those of you that do mot like MESS. 

First step in this card was to cut a piece of FSJ White Liner Sheets, 3 3/4" x 5". 
1" X 4" strips of FSJ Sunday Adventure Prints were cut from 3 different designs of DP, as well as two colors of cardstock.
These strips were then placed on the sticky piece of white liner sheet leaving a slight gap between strips. Then the Gold Leaf foil was worked into all of the sticky gaps. 
When finished, it was then layered onto a Forest Green Matt.

The sentiment and mat were cut from the Treat Labels and Piercing Dies. 
The Happy Birthday is from the NEW FSJ stamp set, Inside and Out..

The flower and leaves were cut using the Blooming Details Die Set with Lemon Grass & Bubblegum cardstock and Mirror Gold Cardstock.

Die Cuttin' Divas - 3 Dp's, 2 Embellishments, 1 ribbon/Bow + at least one die cut.
