Stampin up Brayer and Sponging landscapes

It's all about sponging and the brayer this week at my Techniques class! Loved doing these techniques, they are so easy and these lovely cards do not need any embellishments as they are so elegant on their own! We will learn about brayering a sunset and learning to brayer like a pro! Creating a scene and mountain landscape with sponging. Making a calming lake scene with sponge daubers and glossy paper and learn how to make the image reflect in the water. Also a lovely beach sand scene and how to create the foam! Let me know if you'd like to attend! This Thursday at 10am or 6pm!

Thank you to Theresa Momber for your wonderful tutorial on this calming lake scene and islands.  I used my sponge daubers on glossy paper and loved how it turned out. 

Thank you to Loll Thompson for her inspiration. I used some of my favorite colors berry burst and flirty flamingo for the sky and used the brayering like a pro technique with the sponges from Kelly Atcheson for this awesome mountain scene. 

Being from Indiana I couldn't wait to do a farm with a brayered sunset! Love the touch of the timeless textures stamp at the bottom that matches the look of the ground in front of the barn.

 Thank you to Sandy Mathis and another picture I found on Pinterest for this beautiful scene building technique. 
 Inspired by stamp with amy k and added the foam with the retired set gorgeous grunge. Love the look of sea shells from the set bunch of blossoms and the blossom builder punch!

Stampin up Punch art! Retiring Punches!

I decided this month for the Punching class we are going to do exclusively punch art cards! Since the envelope punch board is not retiring, I wanted to focus on some of the retiring punches!

I hope you can squeeze some time in THIS Thursday April 20th, to join in on the fun. We will meet at 10am or 6pm. Let me know if you can make it by Wed.

Also the Occasions cards class this month at the Bluffton Parks will meet at 6pm on Monday April 24th, instead of the usual Thursday. I need 5 to hold the class, so let me know if you can attend by Friday.

Here are the cards for the Punch art class This Thursday!
Now I don't work the greatest with making faces, I loved the kid faces I saw at Alex's creative corner, while hers were too cute, I wanted a little softer of facial expressions, since I also wanted to create a frame. So I looked online and copied Stampin' Ups retired set sweetie pie for my inspiration. The frame idea came from the easy peasy tutorial from Trinity Designs and used the retiring Decorative label punch. The corners are punched out using the retiring elegant butterfly punch idea from Qbee's

The lion punch art idea came a little bit from myself as I worked with the main using the retiring Medallion punch, the eyes from a cut in half heart from the Owl punch and the paws from the retiring Festive flower punch, but mostly from Alex's creative corner, just love all of her punch art ideas!  

This adorable doggie is made with of all things...the acorn punch! Thanks to Crafty Cow creations for this stinkin' cute idea!

I found this adorable idea for a unicorn here, uses the owl punch and the fox punch(fox punch  is not retiring, but the OWL is! :(

This lovely idea came from Frenchie's team: 

And, here are the cards for the Bluffton Parks class featuring sympathy and thinking of you:
