Card class preview of the cards we will make for Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th April2018

Hi everyone, I’m in north Sydney writing this as I sit here on the 15th floor overlooking the harbour with the Opera house in the background, just gorgeous views. I’m enjoying the few hours of peace and quiet (except for hubby snoring in the background, shh! don’t tell him I told you) I plan on waking him soon so we can go on a night walking tour which we did this time last year and I just loved it. It’s Onstage tomorrow at Sydney Luna Park and anyone that knows me knows I’m a tad excited. Anyway I did promise another card tutorial but ran out of time, but I will have one on Tuesday night. In the meantime here is a short video of next weeks card class. Will post pics over the weekend as I get them.

Sweet Little Something Tutorial

**Please note that the Occasions Catalogue ends on 31st of May**
Hi everyone, I have just started a You Tube video channel where I will be posting weekly video tutorials, this is my first one and I picked the easter card I made for our Easter Blog hop to show you.  I hope you enjoy it, if you have any questions let me know and leave a comment if you like to.

Card Instructions.  

Card Base  Flirty Flamingo 4 x 5 3/4 inches score at 4 1/8 inch
Card Insert/stamp rabbit on Whisper White 2 x  4 x 5 1/5inches
Painted with Love DSP  4 x 5 1/2 inches
Small pieces of Gold Glimmer Paper & Dazzling Diamonds
Basic Rhinestone Jewels
Tombo Adhesive
Stampin Dimensionals
Calypso Coral Ombre 1/4 inch Ribbon
Stampin Pierce Mat

Adhere your Painted with love paper to card base.  Stamp rabbit first in Powder Pink, second layer use Blushing Bride and 3rd rabbit use Flirty Flamingo.   Then stamp your easter greeting above the rabbit and cut it out on the Big shot using the largest Banner or cut it 2 3/4 x 5 inches and cut the bottom into a banner shape with scissors.   For the two little banners use the smallest banner or cut a piece 3/4 inch x 2 inches and cut out the banner shape.  On the back of the rabbit adhere dimentionals, add a little glue or tape to half of the back right side long ways and adhere to the side of the bunny, on the gold glimmer banner add 2 dimensionals and slightly tuck it under the dazzling diamonds.  Ties a small bow with your ribbon and put a glue dot on the back and a little dot of tombo glue. To finish off add your rhinestones and colour with your calypso stampin marker using the brush end.   If you have any questions feel free to ask.  Below is a list of products that I used and should you wish to purchase any of the products I have used their is a list below and you just need to click on the link.

Easter Blog Hop 2018

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Easter creations.
Don’t forget, sale-a-bration has just over a week left to earn free product with purchase or it is also a fabulous time to join Stampin’ Up! Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.
You have come from the lovely Judy May  Blog hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines. 
I have made 2 projects for you this month, the first one is an Easter card using the Sweet Little Something stamp set, just love this little guy.  The card stock is Flirty Flamingo, for the mat I used Painted with Love DSP.  I stamped the rabbit with Powder Pink, Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White card stock and trimmed it to a banner shape, I also cut out 2 little banners using Gold & Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper, added a bow with 1/4' Calypso Coral ribbon, this is a nice and easy card to do but effective as the gorgeous paper does most of the work for you. 

On the inside I used the 2 little flower stamps in this set and stamped a border on the side.

For me next project I made an Easter Box using the Lots of Love Box Framelits Die. The card stock is Emerald Envy, the DSP is from Pick a Pattern and the ribbon is Emerald Envy crinkled seam binding. To make the box you need 4 panels, I cut off all the tabs on each side of the top flaps, and on 2 panels I cut of the two side tabs this helps to stop bulk when glueing the box together, I scored the bottom of each panel about 1 1/4 " (if you want a smaller box you can cut the panels a bit shorter) before I put the box together I cut out a window on opposite sides of the box, I did this after I adhered the DSP, I just ran it through the big shot a couple of times then added some window sheet and assembled the box with 
tear tape.  The little rabbit is from the $2 shop you get 3 in a box.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Sharon Davern
