August Class Cards

Another quick post for my August card class. This is 3 of the 4 cards the girls will be making.
I even gave them a choice between cards in some of the stations.
 
 
 
They can make of the two Star cards above. This is made using items from both SU products and other great stamp supplier products.
 
 
This card just says Summer to me.... Lemonade!
 
 
This "idea" of the layout of this card is a CASE from Dawn McVey of PTI...
 
I hope the girls like them as much as me!
 
Hugs.
Diane.

Getting a Jump on July!

Hi friend(s)... you know who you are.   
8-)
 
I only have two birthdays in June... but... I have about 10 July birthdays, so I decided to get a jump on July birthday cards.  Here are just a few for your review.
 
 The first one uses the new sets and 3 step stamping... I fussy cut the top blossom and popped it up with Dimensionals.  I added some faint raindrops to the background using two different stamps and also a few 3D raindrop clear embellishments.  It is hard to see in the post, but up close they really do look like water drops!
Here is a peek at the inside. I haven't even added a sentiment yet, because I'm still not sure if this going to be Birthday card or not!
 
This is for a friend at work who has a birthday that's always over looked because of the holiday celebrations! ... so guess I maybe shouldn't use the "flag" theme...right?
 
The last card is just a JULY birthstone card. Thought this theme was light and airy 
 
That's all for now!
Won't you let me know what you think?

Another... Wacky Wedding Card story

Hi everyone. I want to share another wedding card I made in one day.  A dear friend at work came up to me and asked if I could/would make a "special" wedding card for her OF COURSE was my response... and then I asked.  When do you need it?  She said Saturday... it was now Wednesday. 
Holy Moly! I thought about it and said I HAD to do it TONIGHT! (Wed.... LAST NIGHT).. because Thursday is my golf day... and she was off Friday... and the wedding was Saturday!
 
I shouldn't have asked question #2..... any special colors?  YES if you could! They are deep purple, green and orange! I said.... WHAT?????  Sounds like Halloween.
She also commented if you can't do that, maybe "love birds"?
I said "Can you be more specific on the colors?"
She said I can send you a flower arrangement from the shower.... OK.
So this is what she sent to me.
 
 
I laughed and said there is NO orange in this arrangement?  Then she said her bridal bouquet will have touch of tiny orange-ish flowers. 
 
I softly sighed... whew! I can do that....
So I went home after work, cleaned the kitchen after supper and began my mission....
Here is my results.
 
 
I know it looks black in the photo, but if you zoom... you can see it is really deep purple.
 
Here is peek at the inside... I managed to add a few "love birds" too.
I brought it in today and she LOVED it!  Ahhh success.
Please let me know what YOU think!
Hugs

May & June Pretties

Hi everyone! I hope you all had Lovely Mother's Day! My post today is show a custom card I made for co-worker request for a wedding.  She wanted an Over-sized card  and colors in Black / White / Gold.  Hmmmm  What to do?
I played around and played around and played around with several ideas. I finally settled on the this...
There is lot going on here... I used the Su framelit dies and circle punches. Plus the Gold CS, and Black & White DSP plus a piece of polka dotted overlay from an old DSP pack.
 
The gold paper under the card is the SU envelope paper. I made a matching envelope as well.
Here is  peek at the inside.
 
The second card we will be making in the June Class.
This card was made using PTI background stencils, Stamps and Dies.
 
Would love to hear what you think.

May Class - Treat Box

Just another quick post to show you the treat boxes I made last night for my next class. I seriously was only going to die cut them out and assemble this weekend. Well guess I just got "into" my work and the next thing I knew.... 8 boxes were done!
 
 
Here is my work in progress. First to die cut and adhere two sides together.
Then I  taped the bottom closed.
I was still watching the shows I DVR during the week so I began to make some tags.

When I was finished they looked so plain I die cut and stamped a few flowers and glued to the side of the label. The centers and stems are in green
 
 
I attached to the boxes and was going to quit.... so I closed up the box to see what it will look like. Still something missing.. right?
 
So when in doubt.... Add a Bow!
 
 
 
Hugs
Diane
