Oh My Gosh! I love this card. I could play with this design thru the eternities!!! I was perusing the internet and caught a glimpse of this card. While the design is basically the same with minor changes…… I just had to change up the techniques on the leaf and bird coloring. The original artist is Jo and she is from Norfolk, England. I remembered the location because my ancestors came from Norfolk and immigrated to America in 1888.
In this class I will teach you exactly how to get that “realistic” look to the leaf in the Soft Seedlings set by Stampin’ Up! The bird perched on this card can be colored in oh so many ways……your choice. I have a quick way to do this bird in less than 1 minute. Check out the video below and I will show you all the tricks! See you in class! Drawings/prizes for every class. Often we send off the featured card(s) at the end of the live video as a Bonus. I go back read all the comments and use comment picker to pick a lucky person to win. soooooo comment live or on the replay before next video and good luck!

Stunning! I just love the blues in this card! This card is done with a white opaque embossing powder and collage technique. So soft yet dramatic in it’s effect. Soft Seedlings by Stampin’ Up! is truly the “sleeper” set of the catalog. Check out the YouTube video below and I will show you in easy steps how to create this gem.
This card technique is called “Blackout resist” or “Jacobs Coat” and is done with clear embossing powder over a colored panel and then the blackout that really pops the card. Watch the video below for the step by step technique and you will WOW your recipient. Enjoy! deb

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this set! Soft Seedlings is a Distinctive stamp set that is oh so realistic! In this class we will focus on taking our cards from simple to stunning with one or two simple changes…….. It really isn’t that hard to step those cards up! Come along with me and I will teach you a few tricks. Then, stay tuned this week for more classes…..all with Soft Seedlings! I have added a PDF technique sheet for your technique book and a template for the Braided Lattice card. The YouTube instructional video is here as are photos of the process for each technique/concept. PLEASE NOTE: the PDF Technique Sheet is blank as I have always had my students complete them for their books. I have found that when they do so they retain the concepts easier. Enjoy! deb
UPDATE: Having major internet issues and my live YouTube video was freezing and then we lost the Internet connection totally. While we are addressing this issue I will go ahead and post this entry. If we can’t get the issue resolved I will shoot a video and upload it to this post as internet allows. ??? anyway we are trying our best to get this resolved and may have to switch internet providers. Ugh………sure didn’t have these problems in Lake Havasu. Hang in there with me as I have some Awesome cards/techniques coming up in this series. There will be 5 classes in this series. thanks for your patience. SHOW STOPPER CARDS TO FOLLOW IN CLASSES TO COME

class 4: All things Background
class 5: Chalk it up!
Now……..ON TO CLASS 1 Simple to Sublime
Now lets look below what happens when we gold gild the leaf edges. I use Mono adhesive put into a glue bottle with a fine tip. I put the glue on the leaf edges as shown. let sit for a few minutes for the glue to “tack up”. this is very important……otherwise the glue will spread rather than grab the leafing. Now gently rub the gilded leaves with a stencil brush and finish with a soft brush. so fun!!!
Below are PDFs: Technique sheets for your Technique Book and PDF for Braided Lattice Card…..enjoy!
