Wow... I just can't believe it's October Class "prep" time already. I am going to share two of the kits I have ready for the October class.

The first is Super Simple! Begin by adding some fun party DSP to the top half of the card. Round the corner for interest. Die cut the Large EVER..... and choose your occasion... such as Best Friend Ever! Or Best Day Ever!.... Here I chose a birthday theme.
Best Birthday Ever!

I die cut the Cake and use sponges or daubers to blend the inks from light to darker. Then stamp a sentiment to match the occasion. Use a dimensional to POP the cake up! 

The second card is easy but takes a little time.
First use the Swirls cover plate die with one cutting plate and embossing hard rubber plate to cut
in to the card front but not through. IF you zoom in you can see the fun swirl design.

Then die cut the dinosaurs and stamp in the colors of your choice...Arrange your creatures however you like.  I added a balloon to the T-Rex and this helps to carry the "RAAAA" themed circle.
Pretty cute ... right?
Thanks for Stopping!

Just in Thyme

Here is a quick post using a new die and stamp set of herbs.
The first herb is Mint
Here is peek at the inside.
I will have to play around with the words and see what I can come up for any other cards.

The second card is Thyme.

Now I'll have to work with parsley.

June Class Choices

A quick post to show you a few of the choices the girls will have to pick from for the June Card Class. I can hardly believe it's JUNE already!
The first card is a fun shoe print which can be masculine or feminine and would be great for any runners that you know. Since June is also Father's Day  and I especially like this stamp set, I think this card would work perfectly. Not only can it be a "Father's Day" card, it would work great for a Masculine Birthday too. 
This set also contains many cute sentiments for the insoles. If you zoom in you can read these two.
 Below is a peek at the inside of the card on the left that I'm using for friend going through chemo.
Below is another all occasion card layout where you can make your own background patterns. This looks so different depending on the colors used. I also made several using greens and yellows.
The next is another easy peasy card to create when you need a card in a pinch. I have made several and left the inside blank. I will stamp the sentiment I need depending on the occasion.
This card uses the skate and swirl star die cut as well as a swish cover plate die.
The girls do 4 cards at class, and I usually give out 3 and let them pick the 4th one.
I hope they like these 3 of the 6 card kits I have prepared.

May Class Card "Nesting"

Today is another very quick post showing ONE of the four May Class Cards. In hind-sight I wish I would have dry embossed the card front with a wood or tree pattern. It seems a little plain, but I can live with it the way it is...and here it is.
I used SU's 'soft suade' card stock for the card base, and SU inks. The stamps and dies are not SU.
I really love this stamp set and matching dies... so many choices and combinations can be used. Here I used the dies for the birds, egg and nest, and also the cover plate with outline and branches.
I kept the colors muted as I am not in "spring/summer" mode yet due to the wonky one day nice, next yucky.... it's rain, cold, hot, nice, rain, cold, hot, nice weather patterns that we've been having here.

Anyway... let me know what you think.
Happy Spring!

April Class Picks

Hi there!
Just a quick post of two of the "many" kits I have prepared for the April Class.

 I think I went over the top this time making up kits. I have enough ready for two and half classes!
So with that being said here are two of the April cards.

I Thought for sure I did a CASE from Ann Schach or Linda Callahan on this SU "Hey Chick" set, but I've looked back in their blogs and can't find this one... HHHHHmmmm.  Was it YOU Nance Leedy?  I just LOVE this "Hey Chick" set. I've made so many different cards using this set I can't count... and I absolutely just love them all! I was inspired by so many people lately I can't even remember who I CASED...  so for that I apologize. .... but I DID CASE a couple of the April kits.

This next card is using another company's stamps and dies.  Cute, cute, cute!  Right?
I made my own background using a stencil and dauber. The limes were two toned by half inking the stamp the second time around. Then... I used two more greens on the leaves. A few sequins to add some sparkle and fizzle... I know I like my tequila with a little fizzle!
