I hope you are enjoying my showcase of card from October's class.
The card today was based on one from a recent training event that we all made. In training we used the Just Add Cake DSP and co-ordinating cards and ink, plus the luscious Scallop Dotty Ribbon. I have changed things up slightly to incorporate the oh so pretty Cheerful Treat DSP that is one of the bargain Hostess products that can now be bought.
For anyone that doesn't know, hostess pounds have replaced hostess levels - and it makes things so much more versatile. For the minimum qualifying party total or individual order of £150, you now get £25 hostess pounds. There are gorgeous hostess only products you can buy at discounted prices, or you can spend it on anything in the main catalogue, or mix and match. A pack of these papers in only £8 hostess pounds, so you still have enough left to get a stamp set or even two!!!! Bargain..............
Right - back to the card :o)
The base is Bashful Blue, with a layer of Concord Crush that has been punched on the top and bottom edges with the Scallop Border Punch. Lots of layers here as we then have Melon Mambo and finally Whisper White. The Whisper White has been stamped with the star and sunburst images from Pennant Parade stamp set, inked in Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo.
The Cheerful Treat DSP has been used with the Pennant Builder Punch to get the banner, and the happy is stamped in Melon Mambo with the Just Perfect Alphabet then punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch.
Along the bottom there is Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon and punched with the Modern Label Punch is the sentiment from another hostess product called Happiest Birthday Wishes.
This layout is fab and could be done in so many different colour combinations, and all you need to do is grab some DSP and take the colours from there. So simple............
Why not have a go?
The final card from Octobers class uses the Pennant Parade stamp set for another Christmas themed card. Be sure to come back and have a look.
