Card Class - May 5, 2011

Hello to all!

I can't believe this beautiful weather we are finally having in Michigan!  It certainly feels like spring!  I hope you've all been able to take some time to enjoy the outdoors - the grass is soooo green right now!

Speaking of green, here are pictures of the cards that we made at class last week on Thursday, May 5.  I love the colors on this card - wild wasabi (my favorite green right now!), pumpkin pie and marina mist - what a great combination!

This first card was made using the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from the Summer Mini catalog.  This punch actually makes 4 different flowers - not just 3, as the name would indicate! That's a steal for only $23.95 - 4 punches in 1!  We also used the Bold Blossom stamp set (for the flower stem and flower on the envelope) from the Summer Mini, and the Happy Birthday stamp came from the Afterthoughts (Hostess Level 1) Stamp Set  - spend $75 on Stampin' Up supplies and this stamp Hostess set (6 stamps in all) could be yours - contact me today to find out how!

This next card is so simple, yet so cute!  I used the Long Fellows Hostess Level 2 set on this card - the sentiment says "birthday wishes....  a little late!"  I'm glad to have this card on hand now, just in case I ever need a belated birthday card!  I used the In Color paper and ribbon on this card - Concord Crush paper (what a beautiful purple!) and 1/2" stitched-poly ribbon in Pear Pizzaz!

Can you tell I went for a "clean and simple" look for my cards this month?? I love the contrast of the colors on this card - the bold Real Red card and beautiful Old Olive 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon - what a combination!  I can't get enough of that ribbon- it comes in so many fabulous colors and dresses up any card or gift so beautifully!  You can get your own bolt of ribbon for only $9.95 - just ask me how!  BTW, I think this card will be perfect to accompany an end-of-year teather gift, don't you? 

For this last card, I used the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper, the Ornate Blossom stamp set that I received during Sale-a-Bration (you can still order one through the catalog for only $9.95!), and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with the Big Shot.  I think I need to work on my "photo taking" skills a bit - this card is absolutely beautiful (and I'm not sure you can tell that from the picture!) - the colors are Pear Pizzaz, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze with a dash of Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip and Real Red - another AWESOME color combination - you just have to trust me!  That is one of my favorite parts about Stampin' Up..... the way they put color combinations together and the coodinating embellishments ((like ribbon, brads, buttons) that go along with everything!  It makes it so simple to create a beautiful, well-coordinated project!  Their Designer Series Paper is another great source for awesome color combos as well - check out all of this year's DSP in the catalog before it's gone!  You can order it until
June 30, 2011.  Don't forget that the new catalog begins July 1! 

As always, I hope you enjoyed!
