With the isolation that we are all in at the moment my upline created an online Zoom Meeting for us a few weeks ago to have some Friday Night Fun. This was just what I needed and hopefully we will make this a regular thing.
Kym gave us a list of supplies and measurements that we needed and then on the Friday night she pretty much ran a class with about 18 of us. Some of us used different supplies as we all used what we had on hand and most of us had a drink to the side of the craft table and just had a good old laugh and giggle. It actually really felt like we connected which was awesome. The session ended up being about 3.5 hours but seriously felt like 2 hours and my cheeks were so sore by the end of it because I was laughing so hard.
The first card we made was this fancy fold card, which I believe is a take on a card very similar to Patty Bennett. When Kym gave us the supplies list she mentioned using this paper or that, I mistook this to mean that we needed both pieces so whilst waiting for everyone I made a second one as well because I already had all the supplies cut.
I also couldn’t work out the size of the stitched rectangle die that she used so I cut two of the second largest ones. Well this ended up being too big so my white piece is on the back, whereas the sample has it on the DSP to ensure you can write your message on the inside of the card.
The next card was a technique that I had not completed before, the rubber band technique. I searched my whole house on the Friday morning to try and find some rubber bands with no luck so I ended up using hair ties which worked alright. I think rubber bands would not be as thick as my hair ties and might give a better result though.
The next card was called a colour block technique which was something else that I had not tried previously. You cut the piece of DSP into a number of pieces and colour each piece a different colour and then place them back on a sheet of Whisper White to layer on the card.
There was another card we made that used the Faux Silk technique, but I had no tissue paper and it didn’t really turn out so I didn’t take photos of that card.
I had so much fun and I really look forward to our next session.
