Complicated Cards Made Simple

We had a great class with Philomena Sullivan on Sunday last.
Once again she had some wonderful projects - the photos just don't do them justice.

This card is a side step card made on the Hougie Board following the instructions included. Phil also showed us a super trick to make that fab 'rosette'. It is very similar to the new die being released by Tim Holtz - sneak peaks on his blog.
But Phil is ahead of the game. The stamp is Baykahbella - she looks great on this card. The paper comes from a fab new CD from Payperbox (available in the shop).
There is also a lovely die cut from the fab new Marianne Designs - you can thread a ribbon through it. These dies sold as quick as they arrived but we will keep ye posted when the come back in to stock.

This next card uses another of the new Marianne Design dies, this butterfly is just fab. The card itself is a bit of a twist on the very trendy easel card.

This beautiful project is the matching gift for the first card. The teacup die is from the Sizzix Scoreboards range. It is just fab.

That's it for now - I couldn't stay for Fiona & Kerry's classes but if anyone has photos I'd love to put them up here for all to see - I heard they were lovely projects.
I have 60+ photos from the Felting class with Christina. As soon as I have sorted them out I will have some more photos for ye - might even be a post or two out of it.



  1. Really beautiful cards I must try the step card with my new hougie board.
