My Top Note Die class - the cards

February's class was this past weekend and I'm liking the back to back classes. That way, my supplies are put back where they belong and I can move on to working on the new projects! This month, the class featured the Top Note Sizzix Die. Here are the cards that we made. This card swings to open (two pieces) and is held together with a rhinestone brad. I had bought so many of the Pretties kits for last year's wedding card class and never used any of the other pretties in the kit! I love this rhinestone brad as it added just the right among of "bling!". Here's how the card opens up.
Here's another card using more of the pieces from the Pretties kit. I love the pearl and the crystal. We strung 2 pearls and one crystal on silver cording, tied it up in a bow. Do you think this is a funky color combo?
Here's a close up of the pretties. You can get this stamp for FREE! This stamp belongs to a set from the SAB (sale-a-bration) catalog. Purchase $50 and get a free SAB item free!
I love this stamp from the set called All Holidays. I believe that this set replaced those All Year Cheer sets. This is one of my favorite stamps from that set. This card was also lined with very vanilla and that was so it could hide the edges of the pretty satin ribbon. We also used the flower from the Embrace Life set and added a touch of color by sponging on old olive and dazzling diamonds.
Here's a close up of the flowers.
When I saw this CD envelope shaker card created by Maria Bell, I just knew that I had to make one. I liked it so much, I decided to do it for one of my classes. I know that this card did not use the Top Note Die, but I just had to make one and share this idea with my ladies. If you would like to make one, check out Maria's video tutorial HERE. Thanks Maria for the inspiration and for the video tutorial!! BTW, these CD envelopes are priced so reasonable. Here in Hawaii, I got mine at Fisher Hawaii for only 13 cents each.
The inside of this shaker was filled with hearts from the SU heart to heart punch using pink pirouette cardstock and chunky glitter.
Thanks for making my day by stopping by for a peek! I'll be posting the mini scrapbook that we made using the Top Note die!
