I took another workshop with Heather Telford in Ottawa. As long as the weather is not too crazy, I hope to continue taking her classes year round. Ottawa is about a 5 hour round trip, but certainly worth the fun and friendship. The cards below I made when I got home. The first series of cards were made using the pine tree from Penny Black’s Woodland Beauty. I masked off the moon and snowbanks, and inked the sky using various Distress Inks and the round distressing tool.
These two cards were made using various Distress Stains on watercolour paper. The snowbanks were created by tearing textured card stock, the trees are from dies by Penny Black called Tall Trees. To finish the card, I splatter white ink on the sky to represent snow.
To create the last two cards I used watercolour paper. I created a mask for the snowbanks. Next using a Misti I stamped the pine tree from Penny Black’s Woodland Beauty three times. Once that was complete, the mask was removed and sky painted using Distress Stains. To finish the card, I splatter white ink on the sky to represent snow.
On October 1, 2016 my friend Ruby and I were able to enjoy another fabulous class with Heather Telford. Heather is an extremely talented card makers and on the Penny Black Design Team. Every time I take one of her classes I learn something new.
These are the cards we made in class.
Heather supplies everything we need to make the cards, plus gives us detailed instructions. I had purchased the Penny Black – ‘Cones & Berries‘ stamp and ‘Berry Kissed‘ stamp so I was able to recreate the cards at home. I don’t have a pine bough stamp or the stocking die so I used the Impression Obsession Pine Branch Die DIE021-N and Simon Says Stamp HOLLY ORNAMENT Wafer Die s321. The cards below are ones I made at home.
Note: I didn’t post the directions to how to make these cards out of respect for the instructor. To learn more about Heather check out her blog. She has some wonderful tutorials and inspiring cards.
I just had the best weekend crafting ever! I finally had the opportunity to take a card class with Heather Telford from Ottawa, Canada. She is a marvelous card making artist. She is a member of the Penny Black Design Team and never disappoints in their release blog hops. Her website is loaded with inspiration, tutorials, and wonderful tips. Check out her Bit and Pieces website at https://cards.heathertelford.com. And if you are ever in the Ottawa area make sure to see if she has a class running, you will not be disappointed.
Here are examples of the lovely cards I made during her class. The wonderful things she taught us was different ways we could do this at home using stamps you all ready have. When I get back from my holidays, I am going to implement her techniques in my card making.
Note: I did not discuss the “how to” techniques of the project out of respect for the teacher. This project was based on Heather Telford’s work and taught to us by her in a classroom environment. The stamp is called Shade Canopy by Penny Black.
