Card Class - June 2, 2011

Here are the cards that we made at class on June 2!  I will be doing another class on these cards next Tuesday, June 7 at 7pm if you'd like to join us!

This month I really tried to use some of the stamp sets that I've had for a while now that I know I will not be able to demonstrate with after the end of this month.  This first card used the Cute by the Inch Hostess set and coordinating punch.  I like how it frames the "friends" sentiment on the card.  In addition, I loooove the Inspired by Nature stamp set and was happy to be able to use it on this card (for the grass).  I used a tiny pearl in the middle of the flower inside the punch and put crystal effects on the other three flowers to jazz them up a bit.  This is a beautiful, clean, simple card (that I found on the Split Coast Stampers website, I should add!).

Since it's June, I knew I had to do a graduation card!  For this card, I used the Top Note Die for the Big Shot, along with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I sponged just a bit of whisper white craft ink on the "cap" and made the "tassle" with Whisper White 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.  Finally, I used the Word Play stamp set (which is a fabulous set, I might add - very versatile - with a stamp for most every occassion - there are 12 stamps in all!).  The front of the card says "Go Confidently in the Direction of your Dreams, and the inside (and envelope) say "Imagine the Possibilities".  What perfect sentiments for a graduate!

This next card is one I'll probably use for my son's birthday in July - I don't think he's paid much attention to the cards that are set up in the basement this month (at least I hope not!).  You may recognize this paper - it's the Celebrations Designer Series Paper that we used recently in my scrapbook class.  I also used the Create a Cupcake stamp set and coordinating punch (I just love those punches!).  And, again, I used the Word Play Stamp set for the "Wish Big" sentiment.  This is just a fun card!

This last card is a Father's Day card - just in time to celebrate those awesome fathers in our lives!  For this card, I used the Elegant Soire Designer Series Paper to make the tie (I have been wanting to make this card ever since I saw an of it example in the catalog last year!) and the All Holidays Stamp set.  This stamp set just happens to be on Stampin' Up's Last Chance List.  So, this set will only be available for purchase until the end of June - then it's gone forever! There are 12 awesome all-occasion stamps in this set.  Please contact me today if you are interested in purchasing this set before it's gooooone!

Hope you enjoyed!  Please join us at class anytime!
