Butterflies and flowers craft class

I wanted to show one of my recent classes (I have a couple to blog but am a little behind so thought I would share my favourite first!!) You all know I have a love of the colour pink and an addiction to dies so this was a selfishly designed class using my fave colours and lots of die cutting!!
the box above and below was die cut using the sizzix favour box die, I like its simplicity as you can decorate it for absolutely anything, the flower was again a sizzix die cut and I showed my class how to add shape and dimension to their flower die cutting using a stylus (one of those pen like tools with a small metal ball on the end) and a foam mat (a mouse mat turned over will do the trick too!!)
After inking the edges of the flower you simply use the stylus to draw from the centre of the flower all of the way down the petals.
When doing my last couple of  Hobbycraft demos I have had this out on the table and it has got lots of ooohs and ahhhs so i think it is a technique I will demo more in future!
We also made a matching card and tag, we added a lattice die cut to the bases of these and then embossed it to give it a different look
Lastly is the main card we made, I absolutely love this card!!
I demonstrated to the class how to cut a frame using framelits dies and also how to stamp through the waste like a stencil
I was having a play with the photos i had taken and made this cool header for my written tutorial, I think i will do that for all of my tutorials now as i really like the look!
I will be back with more later on in the week, i have a craft room to tidy and next weeks class to prep!
