  1. Here's my first card. I created a mask exposing the clipart and added the "stitched" heartlines.

  2. This time I'm taking a slightly different approach, instead of the usual greeing cards I have decided to go with Invitations. Primarily birds and mammal invitations. The recipients of the invitation, will get a nice surprise when they open the card. You will have to wait until the last day to find out what it is. These cards can be randomly placed into nature magazines, picked up at conservation offices, or just posted to memebrs of a particular nature organisation. One of three pairs of Tree Swallows, that are nesting in boxes fixed to the horses fence posts. This one is a handsome mature male, guarding his family. I created the token, and used one of Carole's paper punches and edge punches

  3. Here's the card I made for the workshop. I used a image from Creative Fabrica. Added texture to the scalloped panel and a drop shadow. Added a ribbon and tag from Craftsuprint.com (I make cards for the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity. The kids range in age from 2 to 18 so I think this will work for the older girls. Hopefully it will brighten their day.)

  4. Card 2 - I changed the template by adding background squares behind the white squares, moved the top up and added a white scalloped border. Created the ribbon with the Knot 3 script. Added texture to the top panel, a polka dot overlay to the background layer, puppies from Creative Fabrica on the white squares and a tag with sentiment under the ribbon. I made this for the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.

  5. I sew in a group in Florida for the Greater Federation of Women's Clubs/RWWC - and we are ALWAYS thankful for new members to participate. We sew for many charities and organizations that just need help ... the Cancer Center, Pregnancy Center, whatever locals ask for help. We have only about ten members right now but hoping for more! We do lots of other things, too, to make money for teen scholarships and support many groups that do good things! When I am not playing in PSP, you'll find me at a sewing machine. LOL

  6. First one just using just what was given and a drone shot of my neighborhood. I've just returned for the summer - early - and wow, it's still chilly here! The second one I played a little more and made my graphics and tube in ai ... then wanted to try Carole's duplicate text shading trick. Yes - nice. Always something to learn.

  7. Card # 1 I used the extra template for 2024 and I changed the landscape format to portrait format to accommodate the photo I wanted to use. I'm very happy with the new extra templates for diamond members, because I have used the ones from the first workshop over and over again. That's not a problem as such but new templates give new ideas! As soon as I had taken this photo, I thought of a friend who loves purple very much and her birthday is coming up next month. I used a ribbon that I have made earlier and recolored it with hue, saturation, lightness. the flowers at the bottom are a sticker and the font is itsadzoke S01 and I think it came from a lab. The name of the flower is Echium candidans - Snakeweed

  9. Here's card number 3. I added a little bee stamp and cute yellow buttons to finish it off. I wasn't sure about the colours at first but....it turned out nicely I think.

  10. Just getting started with the week! I used a photo background, then used Posterize to change the lower background; adding a Selective Focus to the resulting image. This allowed me to focus solely on the ornament, while still keeping the main concept of the tree. for the Scallop, I added in inner blend which created a shadow to create a "depth" that I like to see when I make my 3-D cards. I used random noise in monochrome to create the texture for the scalloped section. For the ribbon, I used a gradient at 45% that used colors from the original photo; added the star (from Digital Scrapbook). Then copied the scallop/ribbon/brad and placed it on the opposite side of the card. Merry Christmas in white at the bottom finished it off.

  11. Lesson 2 Greeting card (extra template) I send cards for the usual events, but I also seem to need quite a few sympathy cards these days. Age-related, no doubt. I always struggle with store-bought cards for this occasion, so making my own sometimes is a better choice. I took the photo yesterday in a garden near me. Such lovely tall bearded irises in a soft pastel.

  12. Day 1 I used a background and mushrooms from Creative Fabrica. Font Freehand526 BT The button was as suggested by Carole. I did adjust the colour. I could not get the canvas to get to correct size so just left it as it was.

  13. My Card 2. Not sure I liked the outcome of this one but I did learn a new technique so that's a good thing. I needed to re outline the image before colouring as the original outline was a bit bitty after I had made it a transparent image using the plugin Cybia Alphaworks. I used a font called Peaches en Regalia. TFL

  14. Workshop day 2 This time I used the original template and it is again a birthday card, probably all my cards will be for birthdays and this one goes by mail. It is intended for my cousin who likes butterflies very, very much; she has butterflies on her plates, cups and saucer, posters, photos, bracelets, brooches etc. Every year I try to make her a card with butterflies or send one that a bought when I come across one. I indeed need a double card so that's what I made and show here. The text is in Dutch but I kept a psp version for use with a different language. The butterflies are a bunch of watercolor cliparts that I have for a long time in my stash, I knew that one day they would come in handy. The font is Calligraphy and I it often because it is easy to read.

  15. My Lesson Two - A birthday card for my step-daughter, Beth Seeber-Wilson. She'll be 57 this year, the youngest of my 3 girls. She's the grandmother of Sonya, whose birthday is also coming in June. I'm having a bit of fun with Beth, as you can see... πŸ˜‰

  16. Memorial Day (United States) was formerly called Decoration Day. Families would gather dressed in their Sunday best to decorate the graves of their loved ones. On the Sunday before Decoration Day, churches would host an "All Day Singing" and a huge picnic. Gospel singers would perform in the sanctuary and congregational singing in between. It was a tradition in the South and is still celebrated in rural areas, particularly in Appalachia. The inside of the card would have instructions about where to leave your casserole on your way to the worship service. A few volunteers would get everything ready. It would also include some of the groups that would be joining the festivities.

  18. Day 4. The invitation cards are all fictitious. Although I do live a 20 minute drive from Gardiner Dam, where there is always an abundance of birds of all kind. American White Pelicans at Gardiner dam, on the South Saskatchewan river side of the dam. The other side of the dam is Lake Diefenbaker. This card shows my attemp at being witty.πŸ™ƒ

  19. Not necessarily satisfied with this, but my arm has given out; not easy to do with a pinched nerve. πŸ˜„ I took the pic of my neighbor's flowering bush (tree?) a long time ago. I put several of Cassel's scripts to work: brad factory, ribbon factory, and bow 11.

  22. Day 2 This birthday card is for my daughter who loves flamingos so much that she had one tattooed on her shoulder. Those cute flamingos are from a CF bundle that I recently downloaded. The top ribbon has a blue background with a bokeh pattern that I made with Procreate. The scallops were made with cass quick scallop script. The font is Love Stars downloaded from CF. I duplicated the text, changed the color and moved the red copy to look like a layered font. The background is a parchment paper made in FF and lightened.

  24. I will continue with the invitation cards tomorrow. Today's card is one I have just made to send via email. My son's mother-in-law is a keen gardiner, and yesterday she slipped and took a tumble, hurting her back. She will be fine, she's like me as tough as nails. I used today's template. I struggle to find elements, as I have very few kits, and odd elements to choose from. Anyway, I sent the ecard with the wavy lines, which I lightened even more. I'm not a big fan of patterened background papers, they have to be subtle. I also addd a texture and a little noise. I also chose to frame the text instead of the whole page.

  25. Here is my Greeting Card Lesson 1: I used a cover from one of the Birthday cards I received over the past years. The font is one of my favorites "Chase CallasSH. I don't remember where I found it a long time ago. Following Carole's tutorial I learned a few new tips. I took this workshop in 2022 and it is so helpful to get a refresher workshop.

  26. Lesson 2 - Also an invitation to a (fictional) Christmas get-together to do some baking. A group of us used to do this for a few years, then it gradually faded away, as things tend to do. Had some trouble with the back of the card, but it passes for done as it is. I really enjoyed the video with the cupcakes. The layout was cute and so cleverly done.

  27. Day 2, continuing with the Invitation theme. I complied with the video, with the exception of grouping the 4 photo slots into one large one to accommodate the photo of the male Baltimore Oriole.

  28. Day 1 -- All the items are from my Retro Christmas kit. The top background is one of my white grunge creations overlaid with a cass gradient. Since all the card that I make are 8.5 by 11, I changed the template to 5.5 by 11. When I print my cards, I print them borderless. The plaid was made with cass stripe2 script. The font is Sequents from Creative Fabrica. However, I had to make them in Photoshop since they don't work in Paintshop. I made them on a page and used cass AlphaSheetseparator script for the individual letters.

  29. Christmas again… The trees and reindeer are from a kit by Elif Sahin (a little sparkle elements template). The font is Courgette. The background is a solid colour fill with noise added.

  30. My Card 2 follows on the flower theme. I used my photo of daisies to sample the colours from and decided to use it as a reduced opacity background over a plain background. Font: Babylone. The stripey frame was fun to see take effect. I took note of how to create a back but didn't do it as I tend to print off a design on paper and attach to a pre-folded plain greetings card.

  34. I just love flowers and flower photography plus I have a niece's birthday coming up so the ideal subject. I changed the canvas to 1500 x1500. Used a Random Noise Effect to the scallop paper. The texture effect, 'Blind' on the strip is bold at 100%. The round element is 'happiness is homemade' by Marissa Lerin form Digital scrapbooking.com. The font I have used is also from Creative Fabrica called 'Babylone'

  36. The inside of this card would read, "Happy Retirement!" The text treatment recreates a card I have waiting to be sent to a friend who retires at the end of May. The picture is a stock picture I've had for years. The sandals across the bottom and the suns in the ribbon are from Cassel's Summer Punches.

  37. Day 4 For this card I used a flower bouquet clipart from my stash (I suspect it was once a freebie by CF), but instead of the hearts I used a flower and a leaves corner by Lyleya; the font is Mimosa script. I needed a more generic birthday card and this one is not with a specific recipient in mind. Like always I keep one version as a psp-image to change text or colors when needed. I will probably, at a later moment, use the extra template, but for now this should do because I'm working to make my album at the same time as well.

  38. Card 3, I am slowly catching up after days with visitors. I still have the extra card to complete for Day 2, I have not decided how to do that one, yet. We have a wonderful garden planted by a woman on farmland about 8 kilometres from here. Muriel was pregnant with her son, now in his 40s, I think, and she and her husband were on a huge farm. She decided to begin planting, now her gardens are visited by people from all over the world. The font is Lemon Milk, the butterfly is a brush from Danetta. Flower photography is mine. Jeni

  40. Card 3-Extra I have used the normal template so often for X-mas, Easter, New Baby, Birthday and Thank you that I now choose the extra one. However I used some of the ideas like the lines on the background and some sort of frame. My photos with white flowers and I gave them a little bit of shadow, just as the strip behind them. The heart is from Chantalia Design but recolored; the fonts are Crocus Monogram and Clarissa stories and both have a inner bevel to let them stand out a bit better. The Dutch word sterkte means you wish somebody courage with a particular situation, for instance this card is meant for a friend who has to undergo an unpleasant medical treatment. It has a backside and in this case I will write something inside by hand not printed.

  42. This came in handy today for my dear friend Lorraine's birthday! I forgot to mention that the font is Zooky Squash which I got from FontBundles years ago during one of their $1 sales. It came with seven versions including alternates, swashes, and ornaments. I think I got my money's worth. πŸ˜„
