Casing the Catalog

I made a few changes the the card I cased, just because I tend to like a few more layers…

I love the layout and the colors!  I love even more that this doesn’t take a lot of Designer Series paper, so it’s a great card to use for classes!

Inks: Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight

June Card Buffet…

Wow…June is sneaking up on us very quickly!!

Just a few more days before our new catalog begins!

For all of you who are attending my Card Buffet this Saturday –here is a quick peek at what we’ll be doing.

If you’d like to pre-order your cards you may do so by sending me an e-mail with the card number and the quantity of the card you would like to do.

There will be one 3-D item available to do….often times a 3-D item would count for 2 projects.  However, in this case it just counts for 1 project.  It’s a small box made using the 2-Tags Big Shot Die….you’ll be suprised and how fast and easy it is to make!

If you would like information on how you can come and stamp 30 cards — send me an e-mail!

Card #14 — Happy Birthday (Butterflies)

Cute and simple card to make!!  Stamp with any greeting you like, to make this card work for any occasion.

I love the look of the ruched poly twill.  It’s very simple to do by ahereing sticky strip onto the back of it.

The colors on this card are Concord Crush, So Saffron and Old Olive.


 Card #15 — Happy Birthday!

This is one of those “Fun to Make” cards.  It has a little be of everything….a little bit coloring, a little bit of punching, a little bit of dry embossing, a little bit of glitter…..

The colors are Pacific Point, Real Red and Whisper White.  (Although it has a little bit of Bashful Blue and Old Olive in the coloring.)


Card # 16 — thank you for being you.

I saw this idea somewhere, I made a few little changes to make it a little easier to do in a class.  The button in the center of the large flower is a stamped piece of cardstock.  I added crystal effects to make it shiny.  I think it helps it to pop just a little more.

The colors are Melon Mambo (one of my favorites!), Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.


Card #17 — Happy Birthday – Masculine

Masculine cards seem to be a bit of challenge for many of us….This is a very simple layout and can be easily changed by using different colors or stamps.

The colors are Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.  (I seem to have an Old Olive thing going on here — what would I do without that color!)


Card #18 – Fabulous Friend

I’m loving the “Quilt” look that everyone has been doing with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. This card uses the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper found in Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Mini Catalog.  This is perfect paper for this type of look!

The colors are Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake (beautiful combination!)
