Card Class and a Coffee Cafe Card

I've been wanting to post about my fun Card Class a week or so ago, but I didn't get time to do it with all the Thailand trip posts that I was working on this past week.

Well, I finally am able to post our card class fun and a cute card that everyone made from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating framelits.

I think this card was one of the favorites. Everyone loves coffee, don't they?

How cute are these two? Jackie and Deb are checking out all the great card samples that I have on display during class.

Here's a close up of the Coffee Cafe card: I will post the supplies used, at the end of this post.

I made up a bunch of cello bags with tags made from the "A Little Wild" stamp set. Inside were cute Thailand elephant magnets and some candy from both China and Thailand, for all the ladies at card class!

I think Deb liked her gift :)

Kennedy, Liz and Sue were so funny- they were going balistic over the Coffee Cafe card- they loved it!

Until the next time....

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest is the Best!

I've been working on swaps, and my card classes and workshops this past week. I've got sooooo much to do in my stampin up world right now, I don't know when I'll finally catch up- but hopefully soon!

I'm sharing one of the cards that I made for the Stampin' Up Leaders Swap. You all know I love fruit stamps, and this one is no exception. Its called Lemon Zest and it also comes in a bundle with the Lemon Builder Punch. I'm having fun using all kinds of bright colors with this set. Two of the colors are the new "In Colors" lemon lime twist and berry burst. They are YUMMY!

I also used daffodil delight ink on the lemons. A fold of crushed curry mini chevron ribbon and a couple of ombre Glitter enamel dots to give this card the extra "pop" appeal.

Here's a small bunch- getting ready to be mailed out to the other leaders.

Quick and Cute Piggy

I've got another cute little piggy card to share with you today. Its very simple but very sweet.

I used watercolor paper and aqua painters to watercolor the little pig. Its as simple as squeezing the lids of the inkpads, into the pad itself and picking up the deposited bit of ink on the inside of the lid with the aqua painter and coloring the image. I used the new "in color", powder pink, as well as flirty flamingo and a bit of pear pizazz for the grass.

How do you like the new "Oh My Stars" emboss folder that I used on the whisper white background? Pretty cool, huh?

I cut the scallop circle from the crumb cake cardstock with the Layering Circles framlits and also used the crumb cake cardstock for the card base.

I finished the card with the new powder pink finely woven ribbon and attached it with a glue dot.

On the inside, I used the verse "Says Thanks!" I'm just loving This Little Piggy and I think you will too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Colorful Seasons- My #1 Pick from the New Catalog

When I first saw the new Stampin Up catalog, the first set that I knew that I had to have was "Colorful Seasons."

Its perfect for all seasons and has coordinating dies to match. The leaves, the snowflakes, the flowers and branches, even an adirondack chair. This set covers it all for every season of the year.

I started with this beach scene. We actually did a similar card at my card class last week using the adirondack chair instead of the beach chair on this card. Both look equally fabulous.

IMG_5182

I tweaked this idea from my demonstrator friend, Kim Peck, and I love it! I sponged, peek a boo peach, so saffron, pool party and sahara sand across the card to emulate sky, water and sand.

The beach chair was stamped in pool party and sahara sand and the words and the birds are in early espresso ink.

The birds did not come with this set- I borrowed them from the " Wherever You Go" stamp set.

I punched the sun out with the 1.5" circle punch and used the wink of stella brush in clear over top to get the shimmer on the sun.

IMG_5183

Ahhhh... makes me wish I was at the beach right now.

Hope you like this calming, beachy card and I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.

Check out this awesome stamp set and bundle pictured below, before you go. You'll see why its my #1 pick!

Until the next time...

Card Class - Featuring Eastern Palace Suite

I actually remembered to take "people" pictures at class this time. Well, truth be told, Heather and Sharon reminded me or I would have missed the opportunity again.

Most everyone had finished and left, but there were a few ladies still stamping, chatting and looking over the long, 10 page retired list, trying to pick out the last "must haves" of the current catalog.

Sharon and Heather trying to decide what they cannot live without, before its gone forever.
