Sympathy card

I made this card as one of my entries for the show. Had to make a 3D sympathy card. So I stamped the flower image from Butterfly Basics , coloured it in then cut it out and using dimensionals placed it on the stamped ferns.

Tomorrow is the Methven A and P show. So if I haven't blogged much this past week its been because I have been getting my entries ready for the show and organising my girl Guides to help sell catalogues at the show too. I sponsor two of the cardmaking sections in the show so these are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd cards for the prize winners.
I have used the Hooray It's Your Day Project kit available in the occasions catalogue.
The Congrats stamp is from a Sale-a-bration stamp set called simply Wonderful.

Card using Bow tie punch

Today I taught this card in my card class. It's the same as the post from 21st February but in this card I have used totally different colours to make it more masculine.
But then one of the ladies in my class decided to turn the dsp over and she made a card with the Calypso Coral showing. I liked the effect so much that I made a card for myself.
Great getting ideas from my "students".Thanks Adrienne.

Sheltering Tree

My first go at inking this stamp set Sheltering Tree. This stamp set has been one of the top five selling stamp set for February. A member of my team set me a challenge to use a colour family that I very rarely use. That is shades of orange. I thought well the trees are turning here indicating Autumn is round the corner so that is why this tree is inked in shades of orange.
This stamp set has lots of pieces to it.
Here is the other card I made.
