More One Sheet Wonders and oodles of cards!

I know it has been a little while since I've posted any projects, but I've been hard at work, honest!  First school holidays, then prepping for the Big World Cardmaking Day Event on the 31st, and prepping for the OSW class I did today.  We made 9 cards and a box to put them in.

Here is the first one I did (the OSW Template I used is by Mae Collins, click her name to go to her blog) using Petal Pizzaz and and unusual (for me) combo of colours.  I had a pack of Apricot Appeal cardstock and used the colour wheel to find more colours to use:  Gable Green, Pixie Pink and Cameo Coral.  Not my fave combo, but it ended up looking much better than I expected.  I like challenging myself like this!







I made up my own template for the box, and once I've prettied it up I'll post the instructions.

The second one I made was based on the colours in the Raspberry Tart DSP - Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.  I used the Circle Circus stamp set again.





The ladies who did the class with me used Circle Circus in Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point and Baja Breeze, and their creations looked great!  Sadly I didn't think to photograph them until after everyone had left.
