Urban Underground Card Class

Hey Everyone

I created projects recently for my class girls that featured Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper before it retired. It’s taken me a few weeks to remember I hadn’t put them on my blog.

The two first projects are using Stampin’ Up!s Dragonfly Dreams.  I was so glad that this stamp set carried over as it’s one of my favourites.

This is one of my go-to layouts.  I’m a huge circle fan and by layering some circles and adding a couple of banners, the card has a fullness to it that I love. My dragonfly is lightly coloured with Stampin’ Up!s Watercolor Pencils to give it a little more definition and I added some Black Metallic Thread to finish it off.

For my second project we made a post-it notepad holder with calendar.  We used the same pencil technique to give the dragonfly a bit of colour.  I stamped this fabulous sentiment from Beautiful You as it fit perfectly on my card stock and also because I really liked the words. I added some Black Linen Thread and a sequin just because I liked the look of it!

We then moved on to Stampin’ Up!s Lift Me Up stamp set.  We created two cards using this set.

The first card could be for either a male or a female with these colours and these stamps.  My usual cards are florally so it’s nice to have a card in my stash for a man.  If we had more time in the class, we could’ve coloured the balloons, but I liked them clean and didn’t want them to clash with the background DSP.

Our last card was a shaker card.  We’d never made one before and I hoped they liked it.  Shaker cards are fun and can be used for any age group.

I hope you enjoyed these projects.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Everyone

Time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink!  This week our challenge for you is to;

Just Add Ombre

I tried a few different ways of adding Ombre to my card but in the end I added on a little Ombre to the bottom corner of my card.  The three colours I used were Pink Pirouhette, Blushing Bride & Melon Mambo.  I then stamped some flowers from Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted in Blushing Bride/Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sky/Pool Party.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Beautiful You.

Here’s my card:
