All Occasion Card Class/Club - Wednesday, February 13

Here are the fun cards we'll be making at class tomorrow night on Wednesday, February 13 at 7pm!

I still have a few spots open if you'd like to join us!!  
Just RSVP to amy.frillici@yahoo.com or (989) 330-0259! 

Ok, so on to the cards.....  I am having so much fun playing with the new products in the Spring Catalog!

First up....  Here is a CASE of a card from Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty blog....  I just have to say...  as I searched back through her blog for this card idea (it caught my eye back in December, I think!) I have found about 30 more awesome card ideas on her blog - I, honestly, love ALL of her ideas!!  What a creative gal she is :). 

For this slightly masculine, "happy birthday, cupake" card, we start with a Crumb Cake card base and add a layer of Marina Mist.  Then, the fun begins....  We punched 2 circles (using the 2 1/2" circle punch) from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper pack (this is one of my favorite packs of DSP in the spring catalog!) and one from Summer Starfruit card stock.  Do you see how the colors for this card are all derived from that one polka dot sheet of DSP - that's the beauty of Stampin' Up products - everything coordinates beautifully and they help you come up with great color combos!!

We also added a Silver Basics Designer button (for that perfect masculine touch!) and ran some linen thread around the card and tied it through the silver button.

Lastly, we stamped the image (on a  Very Vanilla 2" circle from the Circles #2 Big Shot die) and "happy birthday, cupcake" from the Patterned Occasions Sale-a-bration Stamp set.  This set is FREE (now thru March 22) with any $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration!!

I just had to do a fun St. Patrick's Day card this year!!  I found the super-cute Lucky Day single stamp in the Spring Catalog and knew I had to have it!!

Then, I saw a version of this card idea on one of the Leadership Boards (I apologize I don't know the creator's name to give credit to....) and knew it was a card we'd be doing at class!!

For this card, we start with a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Gumball Green card, then add a layer of the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper (it's not just for the holidays!!), and then some Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Then we stamped the image in Gumball Green on a Very Vanilla 2 3/4" square and mounted it on a Gumball Green Scallop Square from the Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die - wow, that was a mouthful!!
