Wishes Card Workshop Rides Again


 Do you love to make a lot of cards from just a few sheets of pattern paper and cardstock?

So do I.

My April card class took me back to one of my favorite how to books, Wishes.

This how to book was so fun because it had workshop ideas!! What a cool thing for someone starting out in this biz!! And one of the workshops created SIXTEEN cards and ONLY used THREE sheets of cardstock and/or pattern paper.

Here are just a few of the cards you will make in my class!!

Shinhan markers and flowers for some and even our Stamp of the Month in the soft gray of Slate -- AND the paper pack is Regatta.

The soft Crystal Blue stripe paired with Sapphire created the perfect Clean and Simple cards.

More of the muted Slate using some nautical inspired stamp sets.

And don't forget the soft pastel watercolors used to paint a few cactus, did I tell you this stamp set is one of my favs!! Who knew I would love a prickly cactus!

From a little shell random stamped background with watercolor splatter to a simple second generation stamped flag sentiment -- a little something for everyone.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
