I didn't want to post any of my projects until after my class, which was last night so here are the two projects that we did. I do want to shout out a HUGE thank you to Britta (Camsmom on SCS). I CASEd her this month. I just loved a couple of cards she posted that incorporated SU's special this month and they just looked so fresh and springy!
I have never done a square card before; I know what was I waiting for???? LOL! I guess I was waiting for this card. This was a direct CASE from Britta, I couldn't even begin to image making a change to it! Punching out those little dots with my 1/16" punch got a bit tiring, but so worth it! This uses the Petals d& Paisleys Designer double sided paper. It is the same sheet, just flipped! I used the white gel pen on the paisley. I just LOVE that gel pen! I stamped the "hello" on Shimmery paper, it doesn't show real well, but I still love the feel of the Shimmery paper, just like silk.
This card I did change up a little bit, (Britta's card here.) I used the Petals Jumbo wheel on Shimmery cardstock. I only have a hand full of the jumbo ink cartridges, so it caused me to modify the color combo, shifting to Lovely Lilac. I used markers and huffed for the flowers on Shimmery c/s. You can't see it, but I stamped off So Saffron using the bold flower from Polka Dots & Petals stamp set, as I didn't want those flowers to detract from the stemmed flowers, just fill in some of the white space. Used more of the Petals & Paisleys Designer paper for the Round Tab Punch. Used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the "joy" from the stamp set in the right place.
Both of these cards are simple just so springy! Thanks Britta, I just love your work and appreciate you sharing on SCS!
