FSC Crosses Over Once Again With My Saturday Class

Way behind with everything, that’s what happens when you sneak off for the week to go to Ally Pally in London.  Had a fabulous time and bought oodles of crafting goodies and even found time to have a crafting day with Irene.  Will be hopping around to you all sometime today to see everything I have missed.

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Lovers” … this could be first love, bridal pairs, animal pairs, anything that is lovey dovey.   My lovely teamie sister Dani chose this very romantic theme,

Cheating again because this is another class card that I have been able to use as my FSC piece.  Below are all the crafty bits that I started with to make the card.  The girls were a bit hesitant when they first saw everything because they couldn’t see how this could turn into the card below.  Especially with those brightly coloured flowers and lace.  Two items are missing from the pic – the gesso and gilding wax.


Well this is the finished card which looks nothing like the items above.


The blue card was made as a sample for the girls to look at and the green one below is the card which I was making for the girls to follow.  I actually changed the layout a little.


In between the gesso, paint and molding paste drying we made a very clean and simple card using the new Stampin Up bow maker punch.

I am so in love with this new punch and the little bows it makes are just divine.  I have the Tim Holtz bow maker die but find the bows a bit large for card projects.


I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Wonderfully textural! It’s a technique I haven’t tried yet but need to… The Treasure Gold is essential to bring the highlights and I have been hankering after a few pots!

    Wow Shirl, all three cards are beautiful, I love how you created the subtle flowers and the way you made the flower centres is very creative! The bows do look beautiful, a much better size for card-making. Hugs, Anne xx
