Preview of cards from May 8th Class

I am hoping to offer 2 classes in May.   The first one on May 8th, is for sure a go, but the second one depends on my appt today with the orthopedic surgeon.   Updates on that one to come.
The class theme is Fabulous Florals,   all 5 cards featuring flowers.   These will be for any occasion you want to use them for.  
Here are the first 3 cards, the other 2 will be posted later in the week.

This card is called a SWING card.    This one happens to be a single swing.  What makes it different is that you can use ANY ultrathin die you wish to create a single swing card.  This one happens to use the Framelits from Stampin Up.    It is much easier than it looks, and is a very versatile card shape and fits into an A2 envelope.
I certainly hope that after you have completed these 4 cards, you will be very excited about using your die cut machine, be it a Big Shot, Cuttlebug, Grand Calibur, Wizard, or Vagabond.   They are such versatile machines and so much fun to work with.

Another card from the DIE CUT Class of Tues April 24 & 26th

This card features the "Outside the Box" technique.   This card will teach you how to die cut an image that is larger than the die itself.   The 4 corners feature a lovely little die cut which I sponged with the blue imk used on the focal point.    Tomorrow I will share the last card we will be making.   The signups for these classes are closed.    The image is a digi from Fred She Said.

My next class will be next week at Hobby Lobby Ashwaubenon. Times for the classes are as follows---There will be 4 (four) sessions) and each one will be limited to 6 students. We will be exploring the use of die cutting machines and creating 4 cards. Cost is $10 per person. You will be using a machine to make each of your cards, hence the reason for limited size on the classes. I have 2 Big Shots and one Vagabond so there is a machine for each 2 students in the class. Here are the dates and times for the classes------------
Tuesday Apr 24th 9:30 AM til 12:30 PM   CLASS IS FULL   

Tuesday Apr 24th 5:30 PM til 8 PM
Thursday Apr 26th 9:30 AM til 12:30 PM

Thursday Apr 26th 5:30 PM til 8 PM

Here are 2 samples from that class.   
The first one uses the technique called REVESE Nestabilities.   The image is a digital image from Cornish Heritage Farms.  

This monochromatic card could be used for a baptism, first communion, confirmation, or even sympathy.   It was inspired by one I saw at   Sue Nelson has long been a huge inspiration for me.    And this card is almost a total case.   I changed the color of the card to Ivory instead of the white she used and the crosses are different.   
I will be adding the other 2 cards here later today or for sure tomorrow.    BUT IF you wish to attend this class, I must hear from you BEFORE NOON tomorrow Friday April 20th.     So email me soon and reserve your spot in class.
