April 2017 Artful Angels Training

Our April meeting had a challenge .. I was to create a variety of craft items with the one stamp set...


This is what Rosa did... She made a beautiful gift box, gift bag and card... 



I was kind of cheating with my samples as I had had a few classes in April  so I double dutied.. by making my classes based on the one stamp set...




This is what I did with the Lift Me Up stamp set (142896 - $37) and Up & Away Die cuts... (142748 - $50)


 
And this is what I did with the Floral Phrases (141767 - $31) and Detailed Floral Thinlet Dies (141482-$49)



A couple of cards... A Chockie holder.. A Pop Up card.. a Napkin ring and a Survival box of goodies.. It's good to challenge yourself to do different things.. think outside the box.











Rosa had a stall at a retirement place and had made a few things to go sell on the day... She was kind enough to share her ideas with us..

These peg have retired DSP, Card stock or Washi tape on them with a magnet on the back side so you can use them as note holders on your fridge... COOL idea!! And packaged up so nicely!!!






And she made these two little boxes of chockies








This was one of the projects we did.. a cute little pop out card..

Pull the ribbon side and out pops the greeting and a space to put a little flat treat like a heart chockie or after dinner mint...

LOVING the new In-color Lemon Lime Twist it is such a GORGEOUS colour!!!
The technique on this card is double daubering.. dauber in a light colour first and then dauber in a slightly darker shade of similar colour. The outer edge of the white card here has lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide.. Daubered..

The flower image has been inked up at first with Lemon Lime Twist and then with a Dauber you can add a little of the Tranquil tide to the stamp and then Stamp as you would normally -being sure to hole the image to the card stock a little longer than you normally would...


This was the 2nd project we did.. The lovely Rose Wonder Stamp Set (140697 -$47) and Rose Garden Thinlets (140619 - $54) ..

Using old XRays (or Acetate Sheets) you can cut out with the thinlets and make your very own masking sheets... We daubered with our ink to create the colour of the flower and leaves.. and then we stuck the matching card stock over the top a little off skew. We also used reinker and isicole in a Aqua Paint pen to add the splashes of ink... It's a nice distressing technique...

We decided on the stamp set for our July Fundraiser day... (Seaside Shore 141625) and we talked about possible projects to do...
I made this card on a getaway with a friend and just fell in love with the stamp set..
I took inspiration from picture of a card on page 122 (2017-18) Catty.. Star of Light .. I loved the daubering and thought I could do something like that with many colours to create an ocean look...





One of the projects we really want to do is to stamp on tiles... these were a few I had a play around with...




We are hoping to do this with tiles.. if we can find the right ones for the right price...  And of course use the Seaside Shore stamp set on the tiles..



I can't wait to do the projects... So much fun..
