class card case...Sea Street

This is Kirsteen Gill's card...I just did two changes....card design is hers...so perfect a card I couldn't resist using it for a class.....clear sheet is held up by frame and small dimensionals.....when we did the class...the phrase was closer together.....
 some items are taped to the clear sheet...some are floating....

octopus is fussy cut...and one dimensional is on the bottom of the octopus..and glue dots to adhere to the frame that was created...

Have been working on swaps for convention....class card using baby framelits

Coming up with just the right swap takes awhile for me....have one done of 41, now working on the 61 which is a WOW swap at convention.....and running around...life got in the way....doing a church sale and trying to get things organized there.....think this is my fourth and last yr for that...lol....at any rate....here is a card from a June class......when we did this card in card....the writing for the phrase was moved  over so that it would not show....will  post at a later date...how I cut on the big shot.....as soon as I saw these framelits I thought of a male card with ties....my upline gave me this idea.....
 the ties are cut with the framelits and then used pieces of dimensionals to pop them..
 You start off with a z fold......once the circles are cut...used the circles collection...ten you glue down the top....I did not do that so I could demo it better...
 this card is in hello honey and baked brown sugar

Punch art using baby framelits

I used the owl punch to punch out the blouse using a pattern DSP

used the scallop punch and trimmed....

did two of them and put together to make the top long enough...

was playing around with the card.....




and this is what I decided on...wanted the outfit to pop and I LOVE this embossing folder...from SAB..it is in the new catalog...great decision SU!!

Karen's belated Birthday card

Life has been getting in the way big time...but here is a card I made for a friend...who loves plants and flowers...these are very poor pictures...but used lagoon and wasabi and espresso for the small spade...and sorry this is the only retired thing but needed to use it...lol
 the grass went from shorter to tallest...the two flowers are attached to a clear strip and sticky tape

 the balloons in the back are made out of the small oval and the owl feet...and white twine is attached...and glued to a clear strip



 this gives you the best view....

Swallowtail divided....the trick to it...

This is a case...changed a few things but a case none the less...love this idea...really makes the swallowtail shine...yes, I did use black embossing powder....
Used daffodil delight and melon

more close ups....
What not to do when you stamp a section of the swallowtail with versamark...with a scrap piece behind....DO NOT PUT THE PIECES THIS CLOSE TOGETHER...

if you do, this is what you will get...see the gaps between the yellow pieces...you DO NOT WANT THIS>...
If you do it this way.....little spaces between...
this is what you will get...JUST WHAT YOU WANTED.....used temporary glue behind while using the versamark and embossing powder)
