Michael Strong November zoom class


We had another great zoom class with 
We have this every month and I am so happy 
to see a lot of my online friends and craft together.
We all are send a package with 5 cards including
all the elements you need to make the card.
So last night (for me, but early morning in
San Diego) I made these cards:

The first card we made, was this grid card.
We did it before and I love doing it.
Mike has the grid for you on his blog.

As we did not get enough little squares, 
we made a different card than originally planned.
As i went ahead making this one, I made my own variation
with some extra colors from my own stash and added
 a stamped sentiment.

 Card number 2 is this beautiful peacock card with
some amazing peacock ribbon and matching sequinces.

Card number 3 is ready for Christmas.
We were given these embossed background strips
and the dove baubles (stamp by Michael Strong here).

I added the bows on top. That is a stamp from the 
set Jars of Love by Stampin'Up!
The sentiment is from the words stampset by Mike himself
(only not available anymore).

This is the inside of the card, where I used the
4th bauble for decoration. The ribbon is a piece from 
one of the other cards.

For card number 4 we used a photo of a 
picture by Rachel Ruysch, a Dutch painter..
We received stamped squares, silver embossed on 
silver paper. This stamp is called 
Cloisoné Nesting Squares.
The sentiment I added is from a sticker booklet
with sentiments by Tim Holtz.
And the final card is an Autumn card. 
The leaves come from the stampset with the pumpkin:
the Pumpkin Harvest set.
Lovely ribbon and a little coloring.

Extra card from the leftover nesting squares.
I used the grid printed on yellow paper and the red
dotted design paper. Stamped the smaller dove bauble
and embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Everything goes perfect together.

One little square was left and I used it for the inside
With a stamped sentiment and a strip of the same
paper as used for the front.

Maybe I see you in the December class?
It is on December 12. Info on Mike's facebook.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe and
keep crafting!
