Thank You Swap

Christina swapped this bright card at our demo meeting this month. Love the cutting detail on the stamped flowers. Great use of the fabulous set "Fabulous Florets" and the beautiful paper "Beyond the Garden" both from the Summer Mini.

Suit Coat Card

When I first saw a card similar to this, I knew I HAD to make it. It's perfect for the men in my life :) You can find the link to Jackie's tutorial on her blog. The great thing about this card is that you can make it any colors that you choose to fit your man. I made some of these for a customer the other day and we were talking about how you could easily make this a graduation card as well using the right colors! Have fun creating your personalized suit coat! Order your supplies here.
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Neutrals Patterns DSP Stack

Thank You

Sorry, friends, I've been busy with life lately. I've been stamping...I just haven't had time to post them to the blog. I'm hoping to get caught up and stay caught up for a bit :)

We created this card at May's technique night. This card was created using the new "Strength & Hope" stamp set in the Summer Mini. I wanted to use this set to just make a regular card (even though I chose to use pink as my color palette for this card). This really is a versatile set. I'll show you another card I created with this same design tomorrow :) Order your supplies here.
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo

The Open Sea

I'll admit...it took a bit for the Summer Mini to grow on me. I was in a desperate need for some new masculine style stamps so...those were first on my list. I'm LOVING "The Open Sea" stamp set. I'm really enjoying creating with it. I created this card this week for our demo group meeting. This was my swap. Can't wait to keep playing with this stamp set to see what other possibilities are out there!!!

Teacher Appreciation

This week is teacher appreciation week. Today is the actual teacher appreciation day. Last month at stamp camp we created FUN card kits to be used as gifts. I thought these would make perfect gifts for a teacher. This is a picture of just one of the kits that was made the night of stamp camp.

Didn't Charlene choose beatiful paper to work with? I love how all of the card kits turned out! I'm off to make a couple more to give as gifts this week to my kids' incredible teachers!
