Hi all! It's the 15th, so that means it's time for another A Year in Cards!

This month's class takes a bit of a different spin on cards. We're making cards that have gifts inside. And because the cards are more involved, the video accompanying this class is a whopping 23 minutes long! Craziness! Anyhow, to see the class, download a PDF with instructions, and watch the instructional video, click here: A Year in Cards - February 2010 .

THIS MONTH'S HOMEWORK: Make a card that includes a gift. Upload your card to the TwoPeas gallery, select this class when you do, and you'll automatically be included in a drawing to win a TwoPeas store gift certificate!

All 2010 Classes:
A Year in Cards - January 2010
A Year in Cards - February 2010

Kristina, there is a problem with the first link on your post. It links to the January class and not the February one..

Hi Kristina! Just watched your video. You are so incredibly talented!

Can you explain a little more about the blending pen? The shading you did on the flower is beautiful. Is there some kind of ink in the pen? Do you have to wash off the ink you used?

Also, I just had to comment on your handwriting. It's lovely, I can't believe how easily you wrote "For You" on the last card. Did you always write that way or is that something you practiced?

Thanks for the class! I actually have an idea for a little gift.

aJerseyGirl, a blender pen is a special type of pen. The one I used in the video is a Dove Blender Pen (you can google it to find it. Unfortunately, it's not sold here at TwoPeas). Or Stampin' Up sells them, too. It's basically a clear marker. So, the clear ink picks up the stamping ink and you can transfer it to your project.

As for the handwriting, it's a bit of practice and a whole lot of years of doodling in sketchbooks.

Hope that helps!
Kristina

Kristina, I think you outdid yourself this month. Not only are they functional, but they are beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration. I always look forward to your projects.
Take care,
Kim

Here's one that I made tonight. It's a sticky-note card for scrapping notes that I'm going to give to a friend that I scrap with. Inside is a pad of sticky-notes so hopefully she can use it for scrapping ideas for layouts, sketches, etc. I tried to model it after one of Kristina's cards, but it didn't come out as well as hers. I didn't dare try to shade the flower. But I think my friend will like it.

Hi Kristina. I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your videos... and that I enjoyed all 23 minutes! I will definitely try some of the techniques you show.

oh man! I made a gift card holder type card and forgot to take photos before sending it off to the birthday party my daughter went to. Oh well maybe I'll get another one made, or jump in next month!
