I am having so much fun making FALL FAVORS for my card class girls and the people at work that I've literally spent DAYS in my basement die cutting and gluing favors for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!  They turned out so cute, but I don't want to post too early and spoil them seeing the treats.

So instead.......  I will post a random card I made using some scraps of DSP.  Here is my card.

This is a new JAR die I purchased... I have about 5 now between SU and other companies. They are all different, but I really have a lot of ideas waiting to evolve! So look forward to that!

I also used a touch of the two scrap DSPs inside. Can you see the tiny strip of black I trimmed from the top piece?  It almost seems like one paper.. However, I didn't use an inside sentiment yet, but I like the mix of papers - I think it gives interest. ....  Right?

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Happy FALL

October Class Fun

Next month I decided to have a different plan for my class. I have several left over kits as well as some new ones. So decided to leave them on the side table and let the girls pick which 4 cards they want to make.  As you know there are some from my previous posts and I will share just a few of the new ones I have prepared.
In the end I think they'll have about 10 kits to choose from!
The first card is a little bit of Thanksgiving Gratefulness in Soft Suade and Creamy Caramel.

Moving right into Christmas... I just have to get started on my cards or I won't get the 90 I need finished until the week of Christmas!
The DSP on this card is retired but I just loved it so I am happy I stocked up on it a few years ago.
This could be for just about anything FALL.
Another version using complimentary stamp set to the one above.
Another Christmas card, but again the gifts can be used as a whole, or cut apart to be used for Birthday or Showers. They look fabulous in any colors of the rainbow.
Thanks for stopping by, and won't you please leave a comment and let me know what you think?

Fall Fun For Friends

Here are few more cards I made for the Fall.
The first is for a friend recovering from surgery. It was a rough road, but hopefully he is on the mend.
The second reminds me of Fall... ever though it is year round tree for a porch, etc.
The third is much like the second.... a porch greenery shrub/bush/tree.... ???
I really like this set of stamps and dies... if you look close you can see how it cuts the small pine blades on the zoomed photo.
Very simple but I like both!
If you look close you can see the paper piercing around the tree. I off centered the tree to the piercing and added some enamel dots for interest and balance. I also chose to stamp the sentiment at an angle.
One or two of these may make my next class! Which one do like best?
Thanks so much for stopping by... please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

September Class Choices

A quick post to show a few kits I have made up ... I need to pick 4 for my September class and I keep changing my mind. I always try to have at least 2 cards that are simple and then 2 cards that are a little more complex.
So here are my choices.
 The first is a Stampin' UP set that is a pretty simple design. I think this is a keeper for the September class. The girls can create and chat at the same time while making this one. 
A simple card that uses the new banner punch and SU stamps which can be used  for many occasions. I really like that the punch has images for both orientations.  One for banner sentiments and 'upside down' for bird cages!
Some super simple stamping and a little fussy cutting on the giraffes help to create
a couple of 'Baby' cards using older SU sets.
Another simple card using PTI dies; both for the design and sentiment.
This is a more complex  design, but not difficult. It will take the girls a little longer on this card just to assemble since there is a lot of little pieces. They also have to do some coloring with markers, die cutting a pumpkin from the new glitter paper and then figuring the spacing for their layout using a mixture of both companies' supplies.
This card I made for an Intern that was leaving at work. I already decided NOT to do this in the September class. Perhaps later in the year.
I just love this card die cutout. So easy.... Here is two color variations of the same die cut and I decided to move this one to next month when most of the girls will want to do some Christmas cards. You will  have zoom in on this blue card to see the blue frosty snow intertwined in Santa's beard.  
I hope you liked my card choices.

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!
