More class samples as promised!

Do you know what I love about a new year?  That everything seems fresh and new and full of possibilities.  I have more energy and feel like being in my studio more.  Of course we've had 4 beautiful days of sunshine.  I'm sure the minute it rains everything will change LOL.

Well I have been busy in my studio the last couple of days and here are the other 2 samples I promised.  I will have a couple of more to post either tomorrow or Wednesday.

This card is done using the Cherries & Peaches stamp set from Flourishes.  The card base measures 5.5" x 6" (score 6" side @ 3").  I cut the circles on the cricut 3" for the cherries. 1.5" for the verse.   I stamped the cherries and the verse with black memento ink.  I used watercolor pencils to color image (pink madder lake, crimson lake, madder carmine, mineral green, bottle green, water green & chocolate).  I embossed the white card stock with the swiss dot cuttlebug folder.  The patterned paper is Best Creations Sweet Love GP342.

This card measures 4"x4" and is done using bitter chocolate & french vanilla card stock.  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Curio line.  I cut the scalloped circles out using spellbinders.  It is hard to tell in the picture but I used the outside pieces and built them up with 3d dots so that the frame around the bird is raised.  The image stamps are from the crafty secrets Fairyland set and the verse is from the Flourishes Tag Line set.  I colored plain bling with a cherry prisma marker to get the color to match the paper.  I forgot to write down the colors I used here but the images are colored with watercolor pencils.

I'm not the only one in the house enjoying the sun.  Kit finds a sunbeam and soaks it for hours.  It makes here very lazy. Here is a picture of her soaking up the sun and yawning (must be hard work sleeping on a big comfy chair LOL)
I think she might be a little bit upset that I disturbed her :).  Oh well. back to my studio.  Have a great day and until next time, happy crafty everyone.
