My wonderful upline, Shelly May, had her annual Demo Christmas party and part of the fun is to swap a Christmas present . I made this frame/wipe off memo board. It has some Designer Series paper that can be changed as the seasons change. 
I did the same technique on this card for Fall. The leaves are colored with a clear embossing powder over multiple other colors. And then I used Soft Suede ink over the entire card.

November Stamp Club

I just love how things come together in the end. It has been a busy couple of weeks and my stamping has been coming up last. But I finally have my projects done and my club members I bet are going to love them. This is the page we are making. The technique this month is emerging colors. The middle of the sunflowers are done this way.

More cards from the Summer Mini class I held....This is a stamp set called Sail Away..great for those manly cards! The adventure stamp is from another stamp set named Travel Log.
This card uses the stamp set from the Hostess set named Swirls and Verses. Love it! The Designer Series paper is Sunny Garden which is retiring the end of June. Get it while it lasts.

This is a great 6x6 scrap page that I adapted from a card from Stamping Moon. It uses the stamp set Travel Log also. I will be using for some summer traveling I have planned in July.
The automobiles at the top right are stamped in Versamark and the embossed in clear powder.

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions leave a message and I will answer them!

Sunny Fun

Here are some more cards from my Summer Mini class.....

The is a case from Hannah Kost...I filled it with three smarties and they fit perfectly. This uses the new Melon Mambo embossing powder and the stamp set Sunny Fun from the Summer Mini.

Summer Mini Class

I had a class that involved stamp sets from the Summer Mini, so here they are....
They are cased from all over the different blogs that I love to check out daily, thank you all for the inspiration!

I cased this from StamperCamper because I love the design and just the fun of the card colors and the sea creatures are just too cute....

Cupcake punch can make purses

My upline Shelly May made this card that I knew I was going to "case". I did not have the exact papers she used so I got creative with what I did have. So here are the two cards...

Shelly's is the one with the black and white designer paper (the name is escaping me and my cattie is not close) and mine is the one that uses the Real Red designer paper...
Pretty close, huh. I hope my next class likes it because it will be one of our cards!

Blueberry Crisp

Sorry for the crooked is a 8 1/2 by 11 inch page. what a weird angle. Anyway, this is the page from my club this month. I used Blueberry Crisp Designer Series paper, Sahara sand, and Bashful Blue, oh yeah and Marina Mist....

I tried to make something that would go for either boys or girls. My club liked it....

Vellum Flutterby

This is the card my club made this month. We used Vellum Cardsock for the butterfly, Basic Grey for the card and Greenhouse Gala for the designer paper. I added a little bit of sparkle with the rhinestones.

This is the scrapbook page we also made at my March club.

It's hard to tell in the picture but this is actually Poppy Parade cardstock. The other colors are Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight. Page is great for a boy or a girl. The paper I used on the cupcake liner is Sunny Garden. I used the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp on the reverse side if the paper and cut it out and then crimped it. Colored in the cherry with Poppy Parade and added Dazzling Diamondsfor some sparkle. The other cupcakes are stamped and then punched out with the new cupcake punch. I used the hemp twine to add the banner.

Thanks for stopping by.....

March stamp club

Here are the items we created at club this month. The card uses the stamp set Bliss from Sale A Bration. I did the rock and roll technique with Not Quite Navy and Sahara Sand classic ink. I also used Not Quite Navy classic ink on the the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder and ran it thru. Super cool effect!!

The Vanilla Rosette is featured in the Occasions Mini.(pg. 16)Then we added some pearls for a nice touch.

Punch Bunch and SAB paper

This is what my club made this month. I am so tired of the cold and the snow that I decided to use Spring colors and flowers.

This is a close up of the glitter window. I did the packing tape on the back of the cardstock and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the packing tape. They loved it!!!!

And then for the page we used the owl from Punch Bunch and the Friend sentiment.

The 3 d item is made using the Two Tag Die and the Big Shot.

I followed the directions from DoStamping and it was super easy to make. We put teas bags in it.

Thanks for stopping by....
