Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Yesterday I had some fun with romantic windmills! Honestly, to see a windmill at the backdrop of flowering fields is truly magical!! That is why I was SO happy to see the Flowering Fields suite in the new January to June mini catalog. I really hope that YOU can come to my Day Away with Jackie class on March 4 featuring this suite. Of course there will be an online option as well. Let’s take a look at what I have made and what you will also be able to make with me at this fun class.
Romantic Windmill Cards
A slimline card is perfect for showcasing the beautiful Flowering Fields paper. Did you know that we now have incredible slimline envelopes available in the catalog? Check them out on page 53 of the mini catalog.
I made another slimline card using the Ornate Layers dies and a gold spatter technique that I am still perfecting. Which windmill do you like better? The tone on tone white one or the one above?
Stamped Flowering Fields with Romantic Windmills
If you look at the Tulip Fields stamp set you will see some wedge shaped stamps that can seem a little intimidating at first. I started with some scrap pieces of white and just played with some colour combinations and patterns. After that it made sense and I was able to make this card. Rather than stamping the sky I chose to use the beautiful paper instead. Wow!!!
Day Away With Jackie Class in March
On the first Saturday in March we will be making five cards using the Flowering Fields suite. Cost is $100 but you get the Tulip Fields bundle as well as Brushed Brass Butterflies, a 6×6 assortment of Flowering Fields paper and two yards of windowpane check ribbon. Check out this blog post to see one of the other cards that we will be making. That post also has the PayPal button so you can register for this class easily!
Stay tuned for more fun Flowering Fields cards, maybe more of them will also have romantic windmills. If you want to see some of my photos from the real tulip fields, check out this post.
Flying Home Next Week
On Tuesday I fly home again and of course I am super excited to see all the grandkids, my kids, parents and siblings. After that I get to see some of YOU!! On Saturday February 5 I am hosting a Day Away With Jackie class featuring the In The Moment stamp set. How I love this set too and the cards in my class are fabulous if I do say so myself. They also seem to have the “Dutch touch”. If you cannot come to that class you CAN enjoy the pdf tutorial. I am also going to make videos of these cards for those who cannot attend. In order to access the videos you must place an online order with me for the stamps sets used for the cards.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I appreciate “seeing” you. How can I do that? Well, vaguely to be honest. In my “back office” on the blog I can see how many people have stopped by and from where they have come. The best way for me to know that you have been here is when you leave a comment. Trust me, that makes me super happy!! I hope you have a wonderful day. Here in the Netherlands we are having a rare sunny day, so my heart is light! Hugs from Holland.
