Tuesday Night Card Class: July 26 photos

Hi everyone!  Here are the cards from tonight's class.

The Lace Ribbon Border punch looks beautiful when layered!  I love this little piggy from the Button Buddies stamp set.

Stamps: Button Buddies, Button Button, Happy Greetings
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink
Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Punches: Large Lace Ribbon Border, 1/2" Circle, 3/4" Circle
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals


The leaf and background were stamped using a custom multicolor ink pad that I created with an unscented baby wipe and a few drops from my Classic ink refills.

If you're afraid to tie knots ... don't worry!  The knot in the ribbon is fake!  Just add a Stampin' Dimensional to the middle of the ribbon and wrap a 1-1/4" piece of ribbon around it. 

Stamps: French Foliage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink Pads: Bravo Burgandy, Early Espresso
Ink Refills (for baby wipe technique): Bravo Burgandy, More Mustard, Old Olive
Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Ribbon: 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Powder Pals
Other: unscented baby wipe


The large floral image was heat embossed using black embossing powder.  The My Friend stamp set coordinates with our Pocketful of Posies designer series paper so you can make professional looking projects quickly and easily.

Stamps: My Friend
Ink: Versamark, Peach Parfait
Card Stock: Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Designer Series Paper: Pocketful of Posies
Punches: 1-1/4" Circle, 1-3/8" Cirle

Ruffled Ribbon Shares

Hi everyone!  If you participated in my 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon Share this month, I wanted to let you know that the order came in and the ribbon has been repackaged and is ready to go!

Here is a peek at how I packaged them!  Aren't they so cute?  Each package contains 2 yards of each of the 5 new In Colors, for a total of 10 yards.


If you missed out on the first round of ribbon shares and would like to participate in the next one, just let me know.  What I will do is order a 10 yard spool of each color and then cut them all into 2 yard lengths.  The ribbon share allows you to sample different colors at a much lower price than trying to buy a full spool in every color we offer!
3/8” RUFFLED RIBBON SHARE   ($9.95)
Includes 10 yards, 2 yards each in 5 colors: Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.    



Email me now to sign up!  You may sign up for multiple shares if you want more yardage.  Payment is not required at this time; I will send you an invoice when your product share is full.  Sales tax and shipping to my house will be added to your total.  Product shares can be shipped directly to you (US addresses only) for an additional $2.

Tuesday Night Card Class: July 12 photos


If you have ever read through the supply lists for the cards I design, you'll notice that I generally stick with one stamp set plus one greeting or background set.  For my color schemes, I select two or three coordinating colors of card stock plus one neutral (whisper white or very vanilla) and then I use the matching ink pads.  The Color Coach tool has been instrumental in helping me color coordinate my projects.  I rely on it every week!  I also draw inspiration from the colors used in the Designer Series Paper packs.

Here are cards from the July 12 card class! 


This birthday card features some of new embossing folders in the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog.  I love how the Extra-Large Oval Punch fits *perfectly* in the oval from the Designer Frames embossing folders set.

Stamps: Patterned Party, Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess)
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Card Stock: Pool Party, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Big Shot: Designer Frames, Stripes
Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Extra-Large Oval


The very popular Pennant Parade stamp set features a variety of triangles which coordinate with our Petite Pennants Builders punch.  An upside-down triangle makes a perfect ice cream cone!  The scoop of ice cream was created with the Cupcake Builder Punch

Stamps: Pennant Parade; Dot, Dot, Dot
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla
Punches: Petite Pennants Builders, Scallop Edge Border, Word Window, Cupcake Builder, 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine


Toni asked me if I could design a card with the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and I was happy to oblige!  Use half of a Stampin Dimensional on each wing to make the punched butterfly appear to be flying off the paper!


Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly

Ink: More Mustard, So Saffron
Card Stock: More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, So Saffron (textured)
Designer Series Paper: Pocketful of Posies
Punches: Butterfly, Lace Ribbon Border
Big Shot: Little Leaves
Accessories:Stampin' Dimensionals, Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon
