Silhouette's Card Class

When I start preparing for a card class, I first start with a theme.  The theme for this month is Silhouettes.   then I go onto Pinterest and look through my Stampin' Up Catalogue to find inspiration. These are a few of the cards I tried.  
 I always try different techniques, the first is using a brayer to make mountains.  It still does not have a saying across it because it can be an any occasion card.  

The next group I tried was the bokhe Technique.  Apparently I need more white dots to make this effect work, so I am still learning.  

 The third technique is using Stampin' Write markers and colouring on a clear block. Very simple technique and a large variation and what you can make.  

These are the three cards I came up with for the Silhouettes Class on Saturday February 7 and Monday February 23.  
 This card I created was inspired by the 2015 Inspire Create Share Catalogue, page 127.  I was also inspired by many fabulous cards on Pinterest that used the World Of Dreams Stamp set.
 This card was inspired by a sympathy card I made a few years ago for a dear friend.  I realized this card can be used for any occasion and has more of a masculine feel.   
 This card was inspired by the cards I made earlier.  So being I have so many different types of paper at my home, I realized this is not watercolour paper but the shimmery white paper.  So I may give the watercolour paper a go and see if the technique changes at all.

When creating my card classes I always work on a theme, inspiration and lots of fun!!!!!

If you would like to join my card class on Monday February the 23rd please e-mail me at and I can give you all the information.
