Below are a few cards that will hopefully inspire you!

*************************

The first card features the Spotlighting technique.  This technique works best with large, detailed stamps.  It's a fun and easy way to highlight part of your image!  Use a neutral palette for your base layers to allow the colored portion to really stand out.  On this card, I used Sahara Sand, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla.



Anna brought over her Humor in High Heels stamp set and challenged me to create a card with it.  I wanted to do something fun and girly, so I went with the color combination of Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, and Old Olive. 

Do you recognize the polka-dotted patterned paper?  It's from the Christmas Jingle collection!  Just because the word Christmas is in the product name doesn't mean you only have to use it during the holidays.

Ruffled Ribbon is a very popular technique with card makers right now.  Some people get out their sewing machines to create the ruffles ... but I do a much simpler version using Sticky Strip adhesive.  I prefer cards that are quick and easy!


Sometimes when I experiment with color I end up with something entirely unexpected!  The last card I am posting today uses Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White card stock.  I normally never would have thought to put blue and orange together ... but I think it looks great on this card!

The stamp sets I used are Dot, Dot, Dot and Punch Bunch.  Both of these sets are FREE rewards during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order.

Tuesday Night Card Class: Mar 22 at 7 PM

Below are the cards for tonight's class!  Anna, who is a demonstrator on my team, graciously brought over some stamps for us to use.  Most of these stamp sets are retired and are no longer available for purchase but all of the papers, tools, and inks can still be ordered.

My favorite card this week is definitely the Goofy punch art card!  I used an assortment of our Stampin' Up! punches to create him. A white gel pen was used to draw accents on his eyes and nose.

Please note: Registration for tonight's class is closed.  Hope to see you next time!  Be sure to sign up by Monday at 7 PM to attend the next card class on March 29.  This will be the last card class during our annual Sale-A-Bration promotion.  During Sale-A-Bration, you get a FREE stamp set with every $50 spent (before tax and shipping)!  Click here to learn more!

Tuesday Night Card Class: March 15, 2011

Here are photos from the cards from the card class on March 15.  Sorry the watermarks are so huge - - I accidentally saved the files before I shrunk them down!  Hopefully you can still see how cute that little owl is on the first card.  I used two frosting punch-outs from Build A Cupcake punch to make wings for him!
