Craft workshop cards

This is a selection of cards made in workshops at Craft Inspirations in Sutton Coldfield. How Shirley comes up with all the ideas, I'll never know.
I've actually done this wrong, because I kept looking at the original card while it was closed. The opening should be on the left hand side, so imagine the card turned upside down and that would be the right way, and the blank space would be the back of the card.
This was created using a Dreamweaver brass stencil 'LJ849 Bare Trees' and black and white Dreamweaver embossing pastes. Bazzill lilac and purple card was punched using EK Success 'Dotted Wave'. Sentiment from Craftwork Cards and scalloped circles done with nesties run through the cuttlebug.

This stencil was again from Dreamweaver 'LL431 Sundae' and embossed with Dreamweaver paste. Colour was added with Colourbox Queue Fluid Chalk and stencil brush, except for the top part which was glued and glitter sprinkled over. Card candy then stuck on as the cherry, this and the sentiment are from Craftwork Cards. Dark brown ribbon. Paper was cut with Go Kreate 6x6 'Square Pointy #1' dies that are compatable with the cuttlebug. Pink bazzill card and Bo Bunny Double Dot 'Chocolate Dot' Pink and brown circles made with nesties.

The next two cards were made with teenagers in mind. Pink pearl card had been matted and layered with plain black card and Bo Bunny Double Dot 'Strawberry Dot'. The black card has Bo Bunny Double Dot 'Pink Punch' wrapped round, strawberry dot paper was punched using EK Success 'Swiss Cheese'. Black scalloped squares done with nesties as was the white straight edge squares. White squares had pink colour queue fluid chalk rubbed on, than stamped. Images are from Inkadinkado Inchies '98780 Special Thoughts' Small circles were done using smallest round nestie after being stamped.

This the one for a teenage boy. Blue co-ordination card was sanded around the edges as were the two circles (blue and light blue) Stars were cut using nesties and then put through the cuttlebug using the 'Tiny Bubbles' embossing folder. The card for the stars was also co-ordination, and again was sanded over. The image used is from Woodware 'FRCl058 Boy Zone' and was stamped on to a white circle that had been edged with a blue Colourbox QueueFluid Chalk pad. Derwent watercolour pencils were used to colour the image, and a metallic sakura pen for the wording.

A brayer was used to do the sand, Adirondaks Sunshine Yellow, sea Pool and sky ?, using the masking technique. Plain and scalloped oval were cut from nesties, the images are from Woodware 'GRCL212 Sunny Days'. The girl was coloured using Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. Stickles was used for her hair slide. Yellow Bazzill was used to mat and for the scalloped oval.

This is something a bit different from the norm. Image is again from Woodware 'GRCL212 Sunny Days'. Flags were stamped 8 times on to red, yellow and blue scrap card. then each cut individually, beach huts were stamped 4 times on the same colours and mounted on to white circles cut with nesties, each circle was edged in the same colour as whatever hut was on it. Then it was layered on slightly larger black circles again cut with nesties. Co ordinating ribbon was threaded through. The front of the card done in the same way, but with boats and wording instead. I'm falling asleep and I've only got two cards left to put on, but I'll finish off tomorrow and do a very quick blog hop as I know I have something to pick up from Susan.
