Alligator Punch art card

This is one of the cards for class on Friday. I just love it and had to share it. I used Mandy's website to get me going.
She is from Australia and I think some of out punches are a little different.
Here is the card
Just love him. Hope you do too.
I used Green Gumball and Pistachio Pudding colored paper with a little black and white.   The punches I used were : The 2 by 1 3/8 oval oval, the smaller oval, Boho Blossom punch, circles and heart are from the Owl punch, the 1 3/8 circle the trim the oval for the mouth.  All shading was down with Green Gumball ink. White gel pen for the highlights.
Mandy's website shows the number of shapes.  Here is the image of the shapes from her website. I will replace this picture with on of my own this week .

Let me know if you try to make one too.

Flower cards - March card class

So class this last Friday was on flowers. Aren't flowers wonderful! Just love them so of course I have a ton of supplies to do things with flowers.

We did 4 cards this week. Just had too many things I wanted to share. This one was super easy. The green leaves were on the paper. It was a package of wedding invites I got super cheap from Staples a while back. The flower is Stampin Up punch with adhesive pearls. The other is a Stampin Up stamp (Sale-A-Bration You're Lovely)with the purple cut with a die and the after stamping again, punching it with a 1 3/4 inch punch. 

In this one, the background is the Stampin Up embossing flowers with a stamp from Peaceful Petals by Stampin Up. I colored it with colored pencils (two shades of yellow and an orange) and then painted with water to blend. 

My daughter ( who is selling Stampin Up now) showed me her technique for the background paper. You use very watered down ink to stamp with and get the watercolor look.  Everything here was Stampin up. 

This one is more wedding paper. just cut a little strip of it. The hello is a new die I got while in Illinois recently. It is by Paper Smooches (  Simple but so nice.

Well, hope you are inspired to go play!!

Children's cards - past classes

I am behind on posts as always but wanted to catch a few friends up on what we were doing in classes. Plus, if people in class get the old kits, they need something to see to know what they are making. :)

A past class was on children's cards. Here they are
Here is a Hello Kitty card.  Hello Kitty is a die. It had to be cut in each of the colors and then layered. The Happy Bday was also a die. The solid color papers were Stampin Up and the print paper, something I got at Tuesday Morning.

I love this monster card. The stamps are from Stampin Up. The eyes are layered punches.  I made template sheet to make this. If you would like the template, tell me in comments and I will send you one. Have't figure out how to attach them here.

This doesn't really show in the picture but it is layered. SO cute!
The last was a Christmas kids card. Precious Moments. Found the scrapbook paper at Tuesday Morning and just used the corner for the image. Other layers and punch for the corners.
