Wonderful Wavy Cards Class - Part 2


As promised, I'm back with the other three cards I designed for the recent LC Designs 'Wonderful Wavy Cards' class.  These are all non-Christmas designs.

First of all (above) is a card designed using 'Dinkies Wavy Sheep' which is here on the website and also the wonderfully names 'Lady Baa Baa aka Daisy the Sheep' which can be found here.  The card blank I used is also from the website here.


Next is a card using the 'Wavy Seascape' outline sticker sheet which is here on the website.  These sticker sheets are a great idea for making quick cards - you get four identical designs on the 'Wavy Seascape' sheet plus sentiments for 70p!!


And finally, a card made using the new 'Wavy Butterfly Cats' stamp set which is here.  The sentiment comes with the stamp set.

Keep an eye on the blog for lots more cards from my afternoon class coming soon!

Our classes are held in Irby on the Wirral - you can either come for the day or just the morning or afternoon.  If you're staying all day, you will need to bring some lunch but all other refreshments are provided.  We supply everything you need for the class - pre-cut materials, crafting tools, pens, ink, stamps etc.

We have classes coming up on:

Saturday 24 September - 'Christmas is Coming' and 'Christmas and More'

and

Saturday 19 November - 'Anything But Christmas Part 1' and 'Anything But Christmas Part 2' (two completely different classes

More details can be found here on the website.

Wonderful Wavy Cards Class - Part 1


A big thank you to everyone who came along to my two classes yesterday - in the morning we had 'Wonderful Wavy Cards' and in the afternoon 'Cards for All Occasions'.  We made six cards in each class and I'll be sharing them all with you over the next couple of weeks.

The photo above shows the afternoon class and here are a couple more including one showing Gill hard at work! -



So here are three of the wavy stamp cards we made using the new Christmas wavy stamp sets:


First of all, a card using the 'Wavy Santas' stamp set which is here on the website.  For this one, the image has been split in to three circles - they are all stamped separately so there is a little scene in each circle.  All the sentiments I've used are in the set too.


Next a three panelled card using the same idea - splitting the stamped image into three squares.  The set used for this card is the 'Wavy Christmas Log Cabin' stamp set which is here on the website.  Again the sentiments are in the set.


And finally for this post, a card made using the 'Wavy Christmas Village Scene' stamp set which is here on the website.  This was stamped on to white card and then part of it stamped again to make a continuous scene.  I cut along the wavy base of the stamped image and then matted it on to patterned paper.  The sentiment comes with the set.

More cards to follow soon!!

Our classes are held in Irby on the Wirral - you can either come for the day or just the morning or afternoon.  If you're staying all day, you will need to bring some lunch but all other refreshments are provided.  We supply everything you need for the class - pre-cut materials, crafting tools, pens, ink, stamps etc.

We have classes coming up on:

and

Saturday 19 November - 'Anything But Christmas Part 1' and 'Anything But Christmas Part 2' (two completely different classes

Wooden Owls - Thursday Blog Project by Sarah

Good Morning Everyone! 


It's Sarah here with a new LC Designs Project. Today I am sharing something a little bit different. I have used the fab paper pack - Quirky Quilts to decorate some wooden owl shapes - cut out for me by my lovely husband!


How cute are these right!?
Here is a list of materials and products I used for this project: 

LC Designs 6x6 Paper Pack - Quirky Quilts
Wooden Owl Shapes
White, Black and Orange Card stock
 Circle Dies
Triangle Punch (Xmas Tree Punch)
Glue and Sandpaper 

To make - I spread the glue over the whole side of the wood and then put the papers on, smoothing out any bubbles or creases. Once completly dried I trimmed down and sanded the edges to give them a shabby style finish. I then die cut the circles for the eyes and punched the triangle for the beak and glued these on too!

  Simple but really cute! Thanks for stopping by to take a look, hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
