Class Card - February 2014

Originally this post was from the Dimension Stamps Project Club.  Now the name has change to Nina Crafts, so I thought putting all the posts together would be better and easier to find things.

We had a really good class this month, well we always do actually lol.  We will not be having another until May as the move is imminent, so I will miss it, but I'll be back lol.  For those of you who don't know Dimension Stamps have changed their name to Nina Crafts, the Dimension Stamps bit had become name only so it made sense to drop it.  There is also a premises move on the way, new website and blog so very busy and exciting times ahead.  I'll keep you up to date as and when things happen.

Anyway, the card, I had been looking at the videos from various companies and people who went to the CHA this year and I saw these card template dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, they are part of the Pop It Up range by Karen Burniston.  I just had to do a search to see if I could get them here in the UK and found them to pre-order at Craft U Love, I ordered the circle (shown in the picture below), the oval and the square, but then I ordered the border dies as well, tut.  I thought they would make a nice change to use in class but wanted to keep them quite plain by not using the borders at this time.  The circle sentiment on the front is from the January Project Club set and the sentiment on the middle circle is the complimentary stamp for the January set.  I also used the 'Posie Passion' stamps ref: NC004, what a perfect fit these flowers are, but of course I planned it haha.

Spring Breeze from Nitwits

This is a digital card I did for Logan who is two this month, already.  I have used the Nitwits Collection - Spring Breeze and my Photoshop Elements software.  I printed twice and used some foam pads on the two birds, the smallest tree, the sentiment tag and the ladybird, finishing off with a little glaze pen.
