Lisa B Designs June Class Cards

Published June 24, 2014 by isisimaginings

Evening. Way back in the dim & distant past, (almost three weeks ago), I promised I would post my cards from the class I did in Maidstone,  when I had finished them & then I forgot about them until now. So here they are, better late than never.

My friend Lisa holds two classes on the first Friday of each month & this month we focused on Lavinia Stamps’ Zen stamps,  using distress inks & Sparkle Medium & Silkies acrylic paints from Imagination Crafts.

The background on this card is a Lavinia Stamps scenescape – very handy when you want to save a bit of time.




We used distress inks & masks to make the background on the second card. I used Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean & Chipped Sapphire.




A lot of the time I assist Lisa at the classes & I don’t always get to finish my projects, so it was nice to complete these. I’ve never use Lavinia Stamps all that much before, but I enjoyed making the class samples. Lisa’s class samples are in this post.  My projects are posted on the Lisa B Designs Inspiration blog on Monday & Tuesdays, while Lisa, Suzanne & Georgina post on the other days.

Thanks for looking.

Birthday Cards

Yes, I am up at ridiculous o’clock. I’ve been awake since 2.34, which does not impress me in the slightest. Anyway, I’ve got lots of photos of commissioned cards stored on my computer, so I thought I’d start sharing some of them.

This one was distress inks through an Imagination Crafts stencil, with the message white embossed on vellum.

This was based on a project by Elizabeth Borer in the November 2013 issue of Craft Stamper magazine.

I used Chocolate Baroque stamps on this card. Distress inks over white heat embossing for the background.

The bicycle is a Chocolate Baroque stamp & I used the Tim Holtz Regal Crest Alterations die.
