Card Class - April 14, 2011

Here are the cards we made last Thursday, April 14 at my most recent card class.  We had a great group of gals there that night - lots of new faces - what fun!!

I made this first card at a class with Ronda Wade last month.  I changed the sentiment to an Easter theme by using the "Easter Wishes" stamp from the Hostess Set, "Something to Celebrate" in the Occassions Mini Catalog.  This stamp set is very versatile - it includes a Happy Mother's Day, Happy Father's Day, Welcome Baby, Happy Anniversary, Congratulations, Sweet Valentine and two birthday stamps.  It is only available until April 30th, so place your order today if you are interested in this set!  We also used the Two-step Owl punch to create the tulips - how clever!

This next card is for the golfer in your life!  I loved this color combination - early espresso, marina mist and garden green!  We used the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the garden green piece - it almost looks like turf or grass, doesn't it??  The stamp, "On the Green", is one that I got during Sale-a-bration - it's still available and is an a la carte stamp (meaning it is sold alone) for only $9.95!

Don't you just love this card!!  I found it while browsing a blog I follow.  The Chocolate Chip striped piece (from the Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack) almost looks like a candy wrapper!  The sentiment says "All you need in life is a friend who has chocolate."  The inside of the cards says "...I'm that friend."  This stamp is from the set "Eat Chocolate" from the Occassions Mini Catalog (available until April 30th!).  We used the Scallop Rectange Clearlit Die to make the pink scallped piece - I think it creates a nice touch.  And the blushing bride 1/2" poly-stitched ribbon is soooooo nice to work with - I love it!

This last card is a Happy Mother's Day card - the sentiment is also from the "Something to Celebrate" hostess set in the Occassions Mini catalog that I mentioned above.  The font on each of these stamps is just perfect for each occassion!  We used the new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to outline the edge of the Rose Red piece.  The flower was created using the new Blossom Petals Punch and the "Build A Blossom" stamp set in the Occassions Mini Catalog.  I don't think I realized how many items I used from the Occassions Mini Catalog for this month's class until I just created this blog....!!  There are so many great new items to play with!  Again, if you are interested in any of these items, they are only available until April 30th!!  Contact me today if you'd like to place an order at amy.frillici@yahoo.com.

I hope you enjoyed!
