I managed two more cards from last May’s virtual event – a blue variation of one of yesterday’s cards, plus one of the make and takes. I think I’ll go back to do two more of the make and takes before tackling the next class. It’ll be nice to finally get this stash off the floor and filed away! I
must say I’m not a slimline fan, but I do love the mini slimline make and take card!
I never finished the Create and Connect virtual event with Pinkfresh held in May 2022. I started off really gung-ho for the first two sessions, then got pretty frustrated with the third class as the video quality was woeful and difficult to follow, and truthfully I ended up losing all momentum and mojo for it.
Eighteen months later and I’m trying to clear up my backlog of old classes so I can start putting supplies away … and last night I finally managed to get through the video and complete my cards for class number 3. I think getting this event’s backlog of classes finished will actually be a huge weight off my shoulders.
Here are the two cards I finished last night. I used a congrats sentiment we received as part of the kit on the pink card, as that’s going to be given to a work colleague tomorrow.
I don’t think I ever shared the first two classes of cards that I created earlier from that event, so I’ve included them below. In the first class I followed the colour schemes from the class projects, but then did an aqua background version with my own brighter colours.
For the second class I kinda followed the colours for the slimline card using whatever inks I thought were close, then went totally rogue with the A2 card using aquas and purples – I really love that second card.
Oh boy this Garden Roses stencil and stamp combo by Pinkfresh Studio is an absolute stunner! It seems a shame to whack a sassy sentiment on top, but it was a special request by a friend so it had to be done … I’m not a pink lover whatsoever, but I have to say I really love the colours of this one, and so happy with how it turned out.
I’ve decided to enter this one into the Cards 4 Galz challenge this week which is to use a stencil – in this case it turned out to be two different types of stencil.
