Learning New Techniques

Hello Everyone, I just want to share with you some of the fantastic cards that I made last week at a card class I was blessed to attend. 
This one was a lot of steps.  The birds are actually foil that we transferred with a stencilling tool, then we glittered the branches and then glittered the rest.  It was all on this sticky paper that I cannot remember the name of.  Very fun! I came home with tons of sparkles -all- over me! hehehe

 Then we did this card and theres a ton more to it than meets the eye!  These are all stickers that have been coloured (they were silver to start with).  We pealed the silhouettes out and put them on acetate and cut them out.  The we used a special tape to get the rest of the stickers and transferred them to the card base.  the acetate was heated to to make it lift off a bit and a glue dot holds them in place!  Something I never knew you could do with stickers! Fun!

Then on to this one! We actually painted the background with glitter ink misters and then embossed the vase and used a stencil to cut it out.  The pussy willows are pasted and the vase is inked and pasted in clear.  It was really interesting!

 Then, I must say this next one was one that I always wanted to try! A cascading card! Totally worth it!  Love the wonderful die cuts and flowers we used to decorate with and we all left with instructions so I hope to make another one!

Thank you so much for peeking at my pics! It's always fun to go to a class and learn new things!
Have a wonderful day!

Wow Jennifer, what awesome cards! Sounds like you had a great time at the class & learned lots of neat stuff! I have done the peel off stickers...aren't they fun! Your cascading card is beautiful. I saw one for the first time in the latest cardmaking magazine & I can't wait to try it. Still having a tough time getting back to cards but it will come. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Hugs, Renee
