Friday's Occasions Mini Class

Happy Friday everyone!!

Why is it that the short weeks always feel sooooooo long?? At least the weekend is here, and tonight is my Occasions Mini card class.

One of the cards we are making tonight was posted as a colour inspiration challenge a few weeks ago, you can view it here. Its the Basic Grey and Pink one using the 'Soft Summer' stamp set for Dawn McVey's colour challenge.

This second one uses both the 'Matchbox messages' and 'Great Friend' sets as well as the Walk in the Park Designer Series paper and Baja Breeze corduroy buttons and brads from the Mini. I love the mix of colours in this DSP which allowed for layers of all sorts of colours, so safron, kiwi kiss, baja breeze, cameo coral etc.

The third card also uses the 'Great Friend' set (can you tell that I really like this set?) and this time I have pared it with butterflies cut using my Butterfly die for my Big Shot and the Summer of Love rub ons from the Mini. The same DSP is featured on this one as well, but this time I am showing the other side. The colours on this card are Pink Pirouette and Kiwi kiss, with the main butterfly in Baja Breeze. I love using rub-ons on my cards. It makes them clean and very simple. I think they have a huge impact. The women coming to my class tonight will get to choose which sentiment they want to use on this card.

The last card is made with the Manhattan Impression folder for the Big Shot. I LOVE the look of that folder. I ran a piece of Bordering Blue through and then mounted it on Pink Pirouette cardstock for the base. The white satin ribbon, the 'Oval All' stamp set and Scallop oval punch are all from the Mini.


I am sure that the women coming tonight are going to enjoy making these cards. Visit my Stampin' Up! page to view my events and don't forget to sign up early as space is limited!

Have an awesome weekend!

Cheers,
