My Customer’s Project

Yesterday, I held a class on making a Gift Bag with 5 matching cards & envelopes. Fantastic idea for a gift or even for yourself – then you have some cards handy to send out. My lovely customers loved the idea & thought it was very simple to make. I even had a brand new stamper (conned my walking buddy to join in) – I think she may be hooked.

Each of my customer’s were given a pack consisting of Designer Series Paper, Cardstock, Ribbon, Brads, Twine & Jumbo Eyelets – all co-ordinating colours.

Below is a photo of one of the outcomes. This customer generally doesn’t use bright colours – she is mainly an Old Olive or Earth Elements person, so I gave her something different to work with.

Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun & Whisper White

Stamp Sets: Organic Grace (Level 1 Hostess), Butterfly Prints (Summer Mini), Priceless, Sincere Salutations & Fifth Avenue Floral (there are others, but I can’t quite see what she used)

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun & Yoyo Yellow

Other: Pink Flamingo DSP, Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Circle Punches, Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, jumbo eyelets, brown paper bag (non-SU!) & Bold Bright Brads

I think she did an outstanding job – don’t you agree??

Mojo Monday 122

Hello & Welcome to my Blog!

Below is my Mojo Monday card – I ‘ved used colours I wouldn’t normally use. But I love the way they work well together.

The flower design isn’t actually a stamp – it’s a sheet of Designer Series Paper & I’ve just trimmed it to suit. Quite effective, don’t you think?

Cardstock: Whisper White & Basic Black

Stamp Sets: Inspired By Nature & Butterfly Prints

Ink: Basic Black

Other: Urban Oasis DSP, White Gel Pen, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Butterfly Punch & Gold Brads

 

I really enjoyed making this easy card – hope you enjoyed looking at it.

Thanks for passing through!
