Card Design Class and A Little Bit of News

I have a date for my next Classes at the local Craft Shop - Scrap'n'Stuff and thought it was time to show you!  Each week I am endeavouring to make sure that one of the cards is a different style, to keep it interesting - it is also keeping my on my toes!  LOL!

I have chosen to tackle the 'Dreaded Man Card I am not sure why we find these so hard but so many of us do - so I thought a Pocket card would be perfect!

I have used the Keys Stamp from my stash for the main image and added the sentiment from Layers of Color Happy Wishes art stamp set

The side panel is embossed with the Fleur de Lis Embossing Folder.

You can see the fabulous font on the sentiment from the Layers of Color Happy Wishes art stamp set.

The second card is one I have created before and has been so popular that I had to create it again - not only that, I know that the ladies are going to fall in love with the divine Layers of Color Flutterescent art stamp set - most of you would know that this is a favourite of mine - I just keep gravitating to it when it comes to creating with butterflies!

These cards are for the following challenges:
Clear It Out - Buttons - card 1
Cuttlebug Spot - Buttons - Must include Dry Embossing - card 1
Everybody Art Challenge - Happy Birthday - card 1
Cupcake Craft - Monochromatic - card 1
Incy Wincy Designs - Embossing - card 1
Squigglefly - Buttons - card 1
There's Magic in the Air - Vintage Card or Tag - card 1
Creative Cowgirls - Monochromatic - card 1
One Stitch at a Time - Something for the Boys - card 1
Paper Sundaes - Embossing - card 1

I have a little bit of news - would you like to hear it!??!  You know you would!  LOL!  I am very excited to be able to give you a little bit of advanced notice that Layers of Color is coming to Australia and it is coming to a Store near me - yes, my very own local Craft Store infact - Scrap n Stuff!!

  1. Both are fabulous Linda! Love the font on the manly card and love everything about the pretty butterfly card!!! Glad you will have a local store selling LOC stamps! I am blessed to see them in three stores near to me (well... within an hour and a half I should say)! It's always exciting just to see them there! Hope you are recovering well!!!

  2. Yay Linda - two masterpieces today - love the depth of colour and texture you have achieved on the butterfly card! Know what you mean by the 'dreaded man card'..... but we get there. Good for the gray matter!

  3. I think it is difficult to make a man card, but you've done it so well. Oh how I'd love to be at your class Linda, if only there weren't thousands of miles between us. Thanks for sharing these, and for the inspiration. I'm so happy that Layers of Colors is coming to a store near you. I bet you had something do with that. Have a blessed day. ~ Abby

  4. Love them both Linda! Are you back with both eyes already? I didn't think I missed a post or anything. How exciting to have LOC coming locally so your 'students' can purchase them right away!

  5. Like I told you before. I like the keys on your MAN card. I love the LOC butterfly card. I think this is one of the easiest of the butterflies to use. I love your little touches of sparkle. Hope you are still on the mend. Have a blessed day!
