French Foliage Class

Today I am finally sharing the cards I made for a class with a lovely group of ladies who asked to make some cards that would be suitable for men.  Now I don't have a need for many male cards and I was a little unsure about this one - all of the ladies loved the cards. so I had got it just right!!

I chose to use the French Foliage stamp set with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and River Rock ink, randomly stamping the leaves in different colours.  I used the huge Wood Grain background stamp to complement the leaves. There was a little paper tearing on this card with some Soft Suede taffetta ribbon and Linen Thread.

This card was finished with some Cajun Craze paper from the Regals 12 x12 paper stack and some calico style ribbon.

The leaves were stamped and then punched out with the square punches - perfect when you need a quick card as there is no measuring!!!

For this card the leaves were stamped and cut out, with Linen Thread wrapped around the card.

The sentiments are from the Sincere Salutations stamp set, it is an excellent stamp set to have in your collection as there is a stamp for most occasions!

I just don't know where the time goes - life just seems so busy at the moment!!  I have Philip off school this week as he was sent home yesterday!  Lucy was off last week poorly, I had a car drive into the back of me and so many appointments with Philip that I have only just managed to find time to get my pictures edited!!!  I was hoping for a quieter week??????

There is still time to get your self some Sale-a-Bratoin freebies from Stampin' Up! you can read all about it here! Hopefully I will have time to share some projects using them soon.

You did an amazing job with these! I really love the square punch card (probably because of the sheer simplicity)! Hope the rest of your week goes much better!
