Wednesday Card Class

Hi Everybody,

You may remember that I told you  at the end of one class  my ladies had created a shaving foam background ready to be made into a card at the next class ...

Well here they are from last Wednesdays Class

This first one is Marys' and it is in lovely shade of lemon and peach from the Spectrum Noir refills

We have glittered the both background panels with Glitter Magic  and they look so sparkly.

Mary  has teamed hers with peach ribbon and layered it with peach card and  added in some lovely peach and orange flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts   and it looks fantastic.

Brenda has gone for purple and green with a hint of pink  and then sparkled the background in the same way

Her card has been teamed with white ribbon from  Mei Flower

Her choice of  WOC flowers is  lilacs and purples and it looks very opulent and the white panel is  embossed

Both have the addition of Hatpins pushed into the bows and I am so pleased with both cards ... and so are they

 Well done ladies you're doing great !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  13. Hi Christina I was wondering where you get your hat pins from. I have been looking on eBay a lot but only find the really long 6" hat pins and I would like some smaller ones that are 4" also but I can't find them for sale anywhere on the Internet. Please help me?!?!?!

  14. lovely work Brenda and Mary. Very inspiring.

  15. Yes, they did awesome on their cards....
    I love the technique of the shaving never know what will turned outn but they make beautiful background...
    Well done and thanks for sharing their cards...

  16. Excellent cards, would be very hard to choose which one I would like best. Well done ladies. I think I might give the shaving cream background a try. Dianne

  17. Both beautiful cards ladies. Love the colors you used on each of your cards. Bravo.

  18. These are really some beautiful cards, Ladies. You are lucky to have such a great hands on teacher. Love the colors that you choose also.

  19. They're both gorgeous cards,well done Mary & Brenda,and well done teacher too! Those hatpins really do add such a note of luxury to both cards :-)

  20. Hi Christina, the girls are just getting better and better with every lesson aren't they...are you sure you wouldn't like to relocate down here to Cornwall :). I haven't tried this yet but I have the shaving foam, I have some adirondack ink and I have the card...all I need is a suitable container...I think this calls for a visit to Poundland in the near future so that I can play and hopefully get some nice results. x

  21. These are both lovely, great color combo's on each!

  22. Mary & Brenda I hope you are both 'happy dancing' because of the beautiful cards you are producing. I'd love to know how you feel when you've put the final touches to yet another fabulous card. Would 'amazed' cover it? You are a credit to Christina who must be deeelighted and proud as punch of your progress.
    I'd love you Christina to win an award for your dedication to the art of card-making and generously sharing your tips and techniques with all and sundry. You must have NO secrets left. Bless you. Mary Mac x

  23. These cards are simply beautiful
    Kind regards
