Butterflies and More Butterflies!

Today I’m back with the details on two cards that were available yesterday at Queen’s Ink Art du Jour. We had a great group throughout the day yesterday and I ran out of card kits before the end of the event. Next Art du Jour will be held on Tuesday, June 5th. I haven’t decided yet what I’ll make, but I suspect that it will have a summer beach theme.

Yesterday’s cards were all about the butterflies. For the first card, I created with a colorful version of Laurel Burch’s Flutterbye using a few non traditional colors for butterflies and Laurel Burch! At one point, I was asked how I decide on what colors to use. In the case of Laurel Burch images, Stampendous provides a coloring guide so I usually pick one or two colors from the guide and go from there. For the second card, I pulled out all of the butterfly stamps included in the Indigo Cats stamp set to create a cheery and colorful scene. The sentiments for both cards are from Penny Black.

So with no further ado – here the supply list for the projects. And stay tuned – my next Copic class at The Queen’s Ink will be on Tuesday, June 26th. Card models are on display in the store and the details will be announced shortly!

Below are the supplies I’ve used for yesterday’s projects. Items marked with an asterisk (*) were provided by a store or the manufacturer for free or at a discount. All other items were personally purchased. Read more.

See What You Missed! Cool, Calm and Colorful at The Queen’s Ink

We had another great Copic class last Tuesday at The Queen’s Ink. As usual, everyone packed their good cheer and enthusiasm along with their markers so a good time was had by all. It was also Ramsey’s birthday (happy birthday Ramsey!) so we started the afternoon class with a rousing rendition of happy birthday to get the class rolling.

My next class at The Queen’s Ink will be on Tuesday, May 1st. I haven’t yet decided on the images, but will do so in the next few days so keep an eye here for the next class announcement. If you subscribe to my blog, you will automatically get an email every time I add a new post, so you can stay in the know about new classes, new stamp releases, special events, and other projects as they happen.

Don’t forget – Tuesday is Art du Jour at The Queen’s Ink. I’ll have two simple, but cute (if I may say so myself!) cards featuring images from Dylusions. Kate and Kim will each have two new projects as well so stop by any time between 10:30 and 4:30.

Below are the supplies I’ve used for Tuesday’s class projects. Items marked with an asterisk (*) were provided by a store or the manufacturer for free or at a discount. All other items were personally purchased. Read more.
