Kia ora koutou

...Don't you just love a surprise?  I do :)  'Surprise' was the inspiration for this weeks Monday Card Class - 'Cards with a surprise'.

Open the card - Ta-dah!....
....A lovely bunch of flowers :)

I learnt how to make the inside of this card from a top 25 Demonstrator and she is also the lovely leading lady of Paper Angels - Liz Collett.  I can't remember who she learnt the technique from.  It is definitely the type of card that blows you away when you open it, just wonderful! And, the Monday Card Class ladies thought so too.
Stamps - Mixed Bunch, Hello Doily, Mixed Medley
Ink - Raspberry Ripple, Regal Rose
Card - White and Pink Basil
Accessories - Blossom Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 5mm Corner Punch, White Printer Copy Paper, Sponge, Mini Glue Dots, Rhinestones, Dimensionals.

Wonderful, simple balloon card - when you open it.....

....Balloons pop-up :)

Had so much fun creating this card.  Got it from a tutorial on You Tube...there is so many pop-up possibilities - butterflies, stars, hearts, flowers...the list goes on!
Card - Blue, Black and White - Basil. Red, Green, Purple, Blue - Foil Mirror Card, Clear Acetate
Accessories - Sizzix Steel Rule Die - Balloons, White String, Silver Ribbon, Blue with Silver Happy Birthday Ribbon, 5mm Corner Punch, Red Double-Sided Tape.

Popular Purple....

There was no particular theme for our previous Monday Card Class, but the delectable, beautiful, bold purple card was inspiration enough for these wonderful creations :)

Pretty Purple Gift Box and Matching Card

Card - 
Accessories - Blossom Punch, Triple Bouquet Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 5mm Corner Punch, Lace Border Punch, Card Trimmer or Scorer, Silver Brads, Silver Ribbon, Red Double-Sided Tape, Dimensionals.

....And, staying with the lovely polka-dot embossed purple paper - I was asked to make a birthday card for an avid netball fan turning 18, she happens to love the colour purple :)

...The Paper Peacock Friday Challenge 

I love a surprise but I really love a challenge...Linda challenged us (loyal Friday cropper's) to make a card, it could be for any occasion, the cards will be judged by her husband Martin - the winning card will win a Kaisercraft Paper Pack.  I designed a card that would appeal to Martin (hopefully - fingers crossed), had a lot of fun creating this card, if it's not chosen - it's still a winner in my eyes :)
