Video Tutorial: Masculine Card Using Waterfront

Good Morning! :o)

I have another Video Tutorial for you today. This one shows you how to create this lovely masculine card using the Waterfront stamp set. It would be a perfect card for Father's Day ..... or for a Birthday or in fact any other occasion you might have coming up :o)

The card base is Old Olive card and is ½ a standard sheet, scored and folded to create a portrait card.

The Soft Suede mat is 14.4cm x 10cm (US 5¼” x 4"). 

The inside Very Vanilla mat is also 14.4cm x 10cm (US 5¼” x 4"). 

The two pieces of Ribbon I used measure 13cm and 11cm (US 5" and 4¼”).  

You will also need a large piece of Very Vanilla for stamping and another piece of Old Olive to create your scallop circle mat.

The Waterfront stamp set is perfect for the scene building. You can create forest, lake, beach or tropical scenes using the various stamps in the set. It contains several sentiments too, but I chose one from the Guy Greetings set for this card.

The birds come from the High Tide stamp set and I thought they would make a perfect finishing touch for this card. I also used the Hardwood stamp for the background panel.

Springtime Foils - Birthday

Today's card uses the beautiful Springtime Foils specialty papers. These papers are available FREE during our Sale-a-Bration Promotion when you make a qualifying purchase. Full details can be found in the flyers in my left hand sidebar.

These papers are really gorgeous. They are all foiled with beautiful metallic colours. The ones I've used today have Rose Gold on them, and I've teamed them with a little of our Copper Foil and embossing powder.

The design for this card was CASE'd from a card shown in the Sale-a-Bration flyer. I've chosen to used Daffodil Delight instead of the Pink .... because I love yellow! :o)

The flowers and leaves were coloured using our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

The white mat behind the flower was created using one of the Lots of Labels framelits and cut from some of our Shimmer card. I also decided to emboss mine using one of the smaller sized framelits.

Party Pandas - Shaker Card

The second card included in my Class last month was this sweet Shaker card. 

This Panda with the Balloon is so adorable and I thought he would be perfect as the focal point for this card.

Most of the sequins are loose inside the Shaker, but we adhered a few around the image so they would show even when the card is still :o)

The majority of the sequins come from the Silver and Black mini sequin trim, although we took some from the Assorted Metallics sequin pack too.

The sentiment panel was created using a die from the Bunch of Banners framelits set.

This was the complete Class.
