A very little wish....

This is a swap that I received from Carolyn Swift at our last team meeting. I taught it at a class last week. I have added my bit to it by embossing the tag with the stars embossing folder.I liked this card with the use of the scallop tag punch and the fact that it is done in navy and not the traditional red and green colours.
Stamps:Festival of trees,Letterpress Winter
Paper:white, Night of navy,Tree trim paper stack
Ink:night of navy, Versamark,Lost Lagoon,
Accessories: Star punch,Tree punch, silver embossing powder,star embossing folder,lost lagoon ribbon, scallop tag punch,dimensionals, corner rounder punch

Blended Bloom

I pretty much cased this card from Sandi MacIver  as seen here
I changed the colour of the flower and didn't add the extra panel of embossed cardstock.
I taught this in a class last week and the ladies got to choose the colour of their flower. So they could have Coastal Cabana, Cherry cobbler or Rich Razzleberry.
These flowers from Blended Bloom are coloured using the Blendabilites pens.

3D card

I've seen a few of these 3D cards around and thought I'd like to have a  go at making one. This is what I came up with. Using dsp from the Holiday Catalogue and the tree from festival of trees.
I used a piece of cardstock 4 1/2" x 12 inches to make.
The great thing about this 3D card is that it folds down to fit a standard card envelope.
These cards are great for any occasion.
The instructions I used for this card are from here.

Yesterday we had "Party Time" in Christchurch. An excellent day learning new techniques, meeting team members and of course make n takes.
This is one of the cards that we made using the Choose happiness stamp sets. the flower was coloured using the Blendabilities.
This is a journal that we decorated the front of, again with the Choose Happiness stamp set.

Thanks Emma for coming and being so brave despite the tragic news you had received.
