Card Class at the Glitterpot

On Saturday my mate Pam and I did craft class at the Glitterpot with Jane Gill. The morning class was using Woodware's Bubble Butterflies stamps (both sets designed by Jane) and the afternoon class was using a stamp called 'Lady June'. Again a Woodware stamp and designed by Jane.

The first card can be called a 'scrapping ' card (using the oddment card left after cutting an square card out of an A4 sheet of card. The butterfly was stamped onto parchment/vellum and then coloured using various gel pens. The flower was made of 3 layers, the large being cut from a die and the other 2 actual flowers, secured with a brad through the centre. The daisy stamps were made from a stencil that Jane made from acetate and completed with a greetings stamp.

The butterfly on the second card was using the large butterfly stamp from the new single's collection from woodware. The butterfly was stamped onto black shrink plastic. It was shrunk down and then decorated with gems, glitter glue, nail heads etc. The flower was handmade from 6 scalloped circles - 2 in each size. The circles were then cut into 8's and each piece was curled using flat tweezers and then stuck onto 6 small daisy punches, then layered into the flower.
The stamp was from a Hero Arts greetings collection. The backing paper was from GP stash and ribbon added. The edging was cut from a Martha Stewart edging punch. The butterfly was then added to the flower using silicon glue.

This card is an A5 card. The image was stamped onto an aval cut with a Nestie and the mounted onto toning scalloped oval. The image was coloured using watercolours which I hate. messed up the face but hey ho!!. The ovals were then layered onto a doily which had been coloured using ink. Backing paper was added to the card and some ribbon. Gems were added to the hat. The greeting comes from the same stamp set. All finished off with a feather.

The last card was done as a mono-chromed card. The image was stamped onto white card and a frame was put round the image. backing paper was added to the card and the image was placed on the card.Gems were added and a bit of red lipstick to add some colour to the card. Butterfly stamped onto card and 3d'd it onto the card. I love this card but then I love black and white.

Thanks for reading
