Crop & Create Delivered Online

This weekend I am doing the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine’s Crop & Create Delivered Card Class. It’s 3 days of classes led by some amazing talent in the industry, learning new techniques, play with new products and just having fun.

The first card we did today, is from Becky Moore using an exclusive stamp/die set from Photoplay Paper’s Say it With Stamps.

For this class we created our own stencil using the die cut as a template and then using some inks (I used Stamp Market Peachy and Mossy and Gathered Twigs distress ink). The sequins are from Neat & Tangled Festive Fall mi.

C’mon back tomorrow for a bunch more examples of our cards for this weekend!

Tuesday is here again folks! Here is this week’s sketch for you up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

I’ve got a fun card for you that I made this weekend while I was attending the Crop and Create Delivered event with Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.

We were treated to a fun Lunch and Learn with Lea Lawson from PinkFresh Studio and got to use these gorgeous layered stencils. I’ve never used them before but they were soooo easy. No issues lining them up and the results were gorgeous each and every time. We also got that lovely HUGS die as well.

You will see that I rotated the sketch to do my card. I used some inks from both Stampin Up and Tim Holtz and the vellum is from Lawn Fawn. I added some gold foil paper from my stash and some lovely gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.

I hope that you will join us in our challenge this week and if you’ve never used a layered stencil before, I highly recommend it!

Learning with Lawn Fawn

I had such a great time learning some new techniques with Jenn Shurkus and Lawn Fawn Stamps. I made my first interactive card and it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be! This Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Crop & Create Delivered Card Class has been amazing. I can’t even tell you how much I have learned after our first full day and there is still tomorrow!

We used the Coaster Critters stamp set. I’ve not really done scene cards that much before but again, Jenn made it look so easy. We also learned some great tips for copic coloring! Anything that helps improve my coloring works for me!

This little bunny on the roller coaster goes for a ride! What a fun interactive card!

I can’t wait to create some more fun with this set and get a lot more use out of the many Lawn Fawn sets I already have!

Fun with Gina K

Today’s Crop & Create Cards started off with a really fun class with Gina K of Gina K Designs. We learned some really great layered stenciling, which is not something that I do very much of, but definitely want to in the future.

I also really like the HELLO die cut that we received with our kit as well. I think that Gina said that this stamp set will be released a bit later on, so be sure to watch for it in her store!

Brighten Your Day

Cathy Z’s YouTube class tonight was using our exclusive stamp/die set with fun rainbows and clouds. I can’t believe I don’t own a rainbow set already!

My card is a bit of a variation on the one Cathy did but I love how it turned out. I again used some of the paper from the Heidi Swapp paper pack and ran it through a Darice cloud embossing folder. It was fun to cut out the pieces of the rainbow. The hearts came with the set as well which are a lovely little accent.

A Rose by any other Name

The third card today was from a lesson taught by Jen Tyron on how to color with the Spectrum Noir markers. We actually got 4 markers as a gift but I also had some of these in my stash for awhile but have never used them, so I was excited to give them a go.

Oh these blend like butter, so smooth! I love that they are 3 in one markers with your light/mid/dark shades all together. I colored in this image from a stamp that I have had forever and then went over the rose with some blue and clear wink of stella. I didn’t really want to add too much to this as I wanted the image to be the focal point.

I will be back again with some more fun cards to share!
