Happy Card Set

The next class I will be holding is for a cute note card set.  The set is packaged in our new chevron bags with a cute embellishment to keep it closed.  The set contains 5 notecards and envelopes, as seen below.  This would make a great gift for someone's birthday, or the upcoming holidays!
The class will take place on Thursday, September 26th at 5:30.  Cost of the class will be $14.00, and includes a package of rhinestones for you to keep after class.  If you would like to make a second set of notecards, just pay an additional $5 and you can take home 2 completed sets!  I will need your RSVP and class fee by Wednesday, September 18th.

Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock

Last weekend while we were camping, I was finally able to work on my assemblage clock.  Most of you know I have a thing for some of Tim Holtz's products, and when I saw this in the Spring, I just knew I had to buy one and give it a try!  I used watercolor paper for the butterfly, and for the background papers.  I felt it would be a better medium to use my blender pen to color in the butterfly and also to create a mottled paper for the background.  I used Pool Party, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz for my colors.  The butterfly is a stamp I've had for many years, and love the detail in it.  For the background paper, I used my re-inkers in Pear and Indigo to create a mottled affect with water and a paint brush, and then waited for it to dry, and ran it through my Big Shot with the wallpaper embossing folder.  The finishing touch was using some seam binding with the re-inkers and paint brush again to be sure everything matched.
I also used the swirled flower image from Creative Elements with my white Staz-On to add a little extra to the outside glass.  The unmounted stamp worked really well for this, because I could bend it to conform to the edge of the glass. Below is a close up pic of the glass so you can better see this detail.  It's very pretty in person, there's a lot of bling and sparkle going on!
