I'm sooo late as I've been out all day!! I met my friend Laura in Salisbury today, went to birthday tea for my friends daughter this afternoon and then work tonight so this is the first chance I have had to blog today and tomorrows not looking much better ;-)
Anyway, I do have a couple of pretty cards to share with you today using Painted Petals. This was a popular card at class this week. Well, except the bows, they weren't so popular, I must admit! But the ladies did a stellar job and it never hurts to practice your bow tying skills right?
OK, this first version was the one my ladies made in class. I used a Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Marina Mist colour combo for this card...
Gorgeous Marina Mist chevron ribbon - which is just perfect for bow tying!!
The flowers were stamped using Soft Sky matching the base card.
This sentiment is from the FREE Sale-a-Bration set "Big Day", we stamped this in Marina Mist ink to match the layer under the white card front.

Now, this is actually the card I made as my first sample for this class card. This was of course before I realised I didn't have enough Wisteria Wonder A4 card and possibly not enough ribbon either! Hence, the blue version above was the one we made!
I left it out for the ladies to see though ;-)
The Wisteria Wonder chevron ribbon bow ;-)
This sentiment is included in the Painted Petals stamp set. I love it.
Here I punched it out using the Decorative Label punch after stamping in Perfect Plum.
My Top Tip: Sometimes with photopolymer stamps it's tricky to get a crisp image as I found with this sentiment. All they need is a little "give", which on wood or clear mount stamps is the foam mount. All I do is pop my Piercing Mat under my grid paper and voilà! Perfect images every time. You could use a mouse mat too or even try a magazine underneath.
And a side view of this lilac version to finish today.
Well, I hope you enjoyed today's (nearly tomorrows actually in the UK!) post?
Thanks as ever for visiting today,
I'll be back soon with more!
