All Occasion Card Class/Club - Wednesday, April 10

Here are the cards we made at class this past week on Wednesday, April 10 at the All-Occasion Card Class!!  Our next class meets on Wednesday, May 8 at 7pm (this class is always the 2nd Wednesday of every month!).  I always have room for new guests and would love for you to join us at anytime!!  We always have a blast!!
 This first card was a CASE from my friend Emma Fewkes' blog, Lady and the Stamp (I just love that blog name, don't you? - so very clever!).

Of course, I had to order the new Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate after I saw Emma's super-cute card!  When you score the Pool Party Core'dinations Card Stock and then sand it with the Stampin' Sanding Block, the waves really pop off the card!

 I absolutely love this next card!  I had pinned it on Pinterest a while ago and just finally got a chance to make it for this class!  Thanks so much to Yvette Ashe for her wonderful inspiration!

We start with a Very Vanilla Card base and then add another layer of Very Vanilla embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (on the top of the card) and another layer of Very Vanilla embossed with the Needlepoint Embossing Folder (on the bottom of the card).  The bottom piece is also stamped "Thanks so much" from the Oh, Hello Stamp set.

The flowers in the center of the card are also from the Oh, Hello Stamp set - I LOVE this set - it is just gorgeous!!  We used Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade markers to color the flowers for this card.  We also punched a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle piece of Island Indigo card stock and then layered it on an Early Espresso piece that was stamped with the Just Thinking Stamp and then die cut with the coordinating Window Collection Framelit.  Lastly, we added a layer of the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to make the card pop!!  What a beautiful card!!

Here's a fun idea for a card that you can make with your new Paper Pumpkin stamps (after you put your fabulous new card kit together, of course!!)!!  I found this idea on Stampin Connection - thanks to Jenny Peterson for her inspiration on this card!!

We start with a Crumb Cake card base and add those fun ink splotches with one of the Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit stamps, next we added the Tea Lace Paper Doily, then the strip of Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  Next, we stamped one of the Friendship Preserves images on the soft suede piece and then die-cut it with the Window Collection Framelits - I really do love how this framelit collection layers so nicely!!  Finally, we inked the "hey there friend" stamp (also from the Paper Pumpkin Welcome kit) with the Soft Suede and Baja Breeze markers and added some pearls and a Baja Breeze Seam-Biding bow.

Our last card is another one that I have been wanting to make for a while now.  Pinterest is a great place to find card ideas - thanks to Karen Felix for this beautiful idea!!

We start with a Very Vanilla card base and then add a background layer of pool party card stock that has been die-cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits and then pierced around the edges with the coordinating Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack.  We then die-cut the dress and 3 additional skirt layers with the new Dress Up Framelits - each of these layers was then embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.  Finally, we stamped "Congratulations" from the Love & Laughter set and then added a pearl necklace, some Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta ribbon at the waist and one of those beautiful flowers from the 5/8" Flower Trim.  This dress is just gorgeous!!
