Card Club–Brushed

Have you ever wondered how I design for my classes?  Well, last August when we came out with a year-long Idea Book I was overwhelmed.  There were so many great paper packs, stamps, techniques, tools, and projects that I decided I needed to narrow it down.  So I decided that I would focus on one section of the book each month and design all of my classes around that section.

So starting in February we are using the Brushed paper collection and stamp sets within that section of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

Cards 02 - CTMH Brushed (1)

Above are the 4 card designs that we will be creating at my next Card Class.  This section of the book had so many great stamp sets that it was really hard to narrow it down.  So each card uses a different stamp set.

Cards 02 - CTMH Brushed (7)

This first one is probably my favorite.  My good friend Gina Brandstetter created this card using the Rainy Day stamp set (C1597).

I had a lot of fun coloring on this one with our ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  It’s so much easier than you think.

This card also uses the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I learned a lot from coloring this one. 

Cards 02 - CTMH Brushed (3)

Start with the darkest color as a highlight on the base of the petals, then use a lighter color to color the entire petal, then use the Blender marker just on the tip of each petal, and last color the entire petal again with the lightest marker.  I can’t wait to share more about these techniques in my class.

This card was created using the Celebrate Love stamp set (B1459) because one of my regular card club members requested we use this.

I used the same card design featured in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book, just with Brushed paper.

This last card features one of my favorite stamp sets, Your Own Kind of Wonderful (D1627), simply because I love butterflies.

You too can join me in creating these cards.  We will make 12 cards in total (3 each of the 4 designs shown above). Even if you aren’t local, I can put together a kit for you and mail it directly to you.

So who wants to join in the fun?
