Told you I was back! :)
|Lovely Lace Embossed Vellum - Silver Accents|
|Lovely Lace Embossed Vellum - Gold Accents|
Here are more of the cards we made at my 20 card class on the weekend and can I just say....it doesn't get any easier!! For the two "Elegant" cards above, we merely ran a sheet of vellum through the Big Shot with the new Lovely Lace embossing folder and attached this to a black card. A strip of black cardstock across the front, then a bit of embellishment and the card was done. As you can see, the ladies had their choice of using gold or silver ribbon, and adding either pearls or rhinestones to enhance their card. It really is THAT easy! But boy oh boy does this card ever have wow factor in real life!
|Watercolor Thank You - Work of Art Hearts|
|Watercolor Thank You - Work of Art Circles|
As for the two "Trendy" artwork-type cards on that come next....when you want or need a card fast, Work of Art comes to the rescue again. We merely stamped three consecutive times (without re-inking in between) with one of the swooshes that come in the Work of Art set. Then the ladies repeated this with either the Work of Art circle stamp or the heart. The new Watercolor Thank You provided the perfect sentiment. And the addition of either circle or heart-shaped Coastal Cabana sequins and some matching Baker's Twine completed the card. Quick and cute, wouldn't you say? And I am quite liking the In Color sequins that are offered in this new catalogue. Sometimes they are just enough to add the bling I need.
This morning I am holding my last Club until September. Lots of classes planned over the summer, but our regularly scheduled club takes a hiatus. So I am off to prep the final bits of cardstock.
Tune in tomorrow for a few more installments from my Inspiration Stamp Day collection. Some elegant. Some trendy. Some refined. Some bohemian. We made something to suit everyone's taste!
And just for the record, please feel free to leave me a comment to let me know....which way do your tastes run? Elegant and Manicured or Trendy and Interpretive? It will be interesting to hear which kinds of cards people gravitate towards?
Until then - I hope you are looking forward to a great day. May your work-day be over Fast. And may your entire day be Fabulous!
God Bless you all, ~Cynthia <><
