The backgrounds also came with all the wonderful clothes and other things. First, I cut out the Doll, then her clothes. I found that the package also had elements from the background printed so I cut them out also, and pop dotted them to give the 3-D effect. The same with the Doll and the dog. This is a 6 by 6 card which is great also.
This will make a great card for just about any occasion and so great for a best friend or birthday.
Well thanks for listening. Leslie

This card is another one from my February class. It was inspired from another card. Unfortunately, I neglected to write down who's card idea this was...sorry.
Love the purple and the various shades of mauve. The butterflies are glued to the paper, then the sheet is embossed and the butterflies seem to become part of the paper. It is a great effect. I love how it turned out. Thanks for listening. Leslie

This pretty card was inspired by another card designed by Catherine Black, a great Stampin'Up designer and my "Up" person in SU.
It is a great technique. You take the green painter's tape, stick it on your ink pad, burnish it so the ink sticks to the glue on the tape, then lift the tape and put it on your white paper. Burnish it again and it comes off on your paper and creates a beautiful impression. I used pink, purple and turquoise because I was making an Easter card, but the original card was done in greens and a yellow green and had birds on it. The card base is the turquoise colour and the rest is done in purples. It looks just great and the colour combinations are almost endless. Imagine Christmas colours with Santa in the oval or an angel. Fantastic... I will have to try that. Until the next time...thanks for listening...Leslie

This month I featured the Four Square Card for the Simple Card Design lesson. I showed my groups how they could vary this simple card to make a card with a very different look. By choosing paper from the same source you have the ability to create a card that matches well and the colours work well together. However the same can be true with using other colours like the next Four Square Card.
The bold black and white unifies this card, and the bright colour mats give it some pizzaz.
This last Four Square Card utilizes an old Christmas card. I created the 'window' with a square punch. The stripe paper makes it look more like wall paper in a way. The lovely greeting is actually taken from the inside of the card. I used a Spellbinder Label to cut it our from the inside of the card. I moved my "window" around on the card front until I got the view that worked the best. I love how this turned out and also that I am recycling old Christmas cards. They often have such lovely art on the it is just a shame not to put them to good use.
The group loved the Four Square Card idea and I hope you will too. Thanks for listening. Leslie
