Yellow Thursday and Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Here we are at The Glitter Pot again using fabulous Magenta bird stamps to make sunny, cheery cards (shucks - we missed Easter!). There were six of us on the class which was really nice for a change! I had a turn at sitting down and actually making a card with the girls! On these cards we used Bazzil Basics, Doodlebug paper and coloured the stamped image with Inktense pencils. Die cut scallop squares, distressed edges with Tim's ink pads and embossed card with Cuttlebug embossing folders.

We also made some of my fun sprinkles by using up the scraps from the card making session. Just cut strips of very thin card in three of four
 colours. Using a sharp pair of scissors, snip the strips into little squares (don't forget to put these into a little pot as you go!!). Apply some silicone gel to the area you want to 'sprinkle' and just pour over the pot of little squares. Shake off the excess and leave to dry for about 10 minutes. You might just be able to see this in the centre of the flowers and along the bottom of the large sunflower card. 

In the afternoon we played with Rubber Stamp Tapestry and made two cards, one of which is pictured here. In a rare moment of madness I chose lilac for my colour theme. I always though purple was for the sole use of Julie Hickey! Hope she doesn't mind me pinching her colour for a while.

Making your own buttons is easy with an inch and a quarter inch punch, some white shrink plastic, powdered chalks and one of the little stamps from your RST set. All the cards are on view at The Glitter Pot. So see you next time on a class! Bye for now.
