Last Weeks Class!

I forgot to post the pictures for last weeks class. We had a fun time and 3 people brought me these awesome pink flamingo treasures! Thank you everyone!
We used the Weather Together Stamp set and matching dies which are retiring May 31st. So if you love them theres only a few days left to get them!
We also used the Marquee Messages Stamp set and I don't know what I was thinking but there are 39 yes 39 rhinestones on this card.
Also for the last card we used the Southern Serenade Stamp set which was new in the Spring Occasions catalog and is returning in the Annual Catalog! It is also featuring the returning Coastal Cabana Cardstock! I love it!!
The Annual Catalog goes live June 1st. I will be ordering bright and early on that day. So if you would like to order any retiring items you can order online or contact me! For online ordering you have until midnight May 31st. If you would like to order from me please get me your orders by May 30th.
For online ordering out of the new Annual Catalog contact me by may 31st or order online June 1st.
To see the retiring products, or to place an online order you can check it out here .
Happy Stamping!

Where do you get your inspiration from? I get mine from many areas! For this card I cased it out of the new annual catalog. There is lots of inspiration there. I love looking at the catalogs over and over!
This is my version of the card on the right side on page 18. It is using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set which is not a new set at all. Its nice to use sets once in awhile that we've had for awhile and hardly used.
I usually just focus on all the great new stuff. But I'm going to try something new for me and try to do something new and current but not new in every class. Then it helps people focus on the annual catalog also when the Holiday and Spring Catalogs come out!
I have used the returning Coastal Cabana for the base and stamped the large stamp in Coastal Cabana ink on the base. I have changed up the original by using white cardstock where there was designer paper and layered it with Gorgeous Grape (which really is gorgeous!). The flowers are stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. I have stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green. I love this whole color combination. The white is embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.
For the punches on the greeting I have used the Everday Label and Taylored Tag punches.
The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana and I added some rhinestones. There is quite a bit of fussy cutting on this card so even though I love it I don't think I would want to make a ton of them!
Happy Stamping!

I just love this catalog and cant wait to order some new products out of it! As demonstrators we are able to order a few selected products this month. But I am anxious to choose what I want to order also!
I have used the Stitched All Around stamp set for the greeting, the layered it Rich Razzleberry cardstock and put it on top of the new doily.
The doily and designer papers are available now to everyone in bundles. So if you cant wait until June to order you can order those now!
You can check them out at my online store here .

Third Card Project!

This is the third card I made when playing with my new products the other day! I love how this ribbon goes with these papers even tho officially it is not one of the colors in the paper pack. This is the retiring Tranqil Tide ribbon. I love the crinkled ribbon look. I think it is very elegant and I definitely don't have feel the need to iron my ribbon like I know some people do.
I have used the Garden Impressions papers again. I just love these papers!!
I have also used the Share What you love papers. I cut out some flowers from one the papers and it goes perfectly with the Garden Impressions papers.
Happy Stamping!

Icing On The Cake!

I have been wanting to use this set for a long time. I love how it looks like a mini little sheet cake. I made 6 of these cards. Two of each. Then I put them in an acetate box as a set. I was thinking of putting ribbon around the box but then the "sheet cake" wouldn't show! The bottom picture is in the acetate box.
Its a fun set to play with!
This set did carry over into the new Annual Catalog!

Spring Stamping Retreat!

Here are some pictures of our one day Stamping Retreat Tami and I did yesterday. We only had 5 people but it was a good amount to start with for our first one day retreat. We centered the whole retreat around one stamp set Awesomely Artistic.
Tami did 4 cards with Brusho and I did 4 regular cards.
The gals spent a lot of the morning doing their brusho projects so they would be dry to work with in the afternoon.
We also took a break for lunch. Everyone got an adhesive/embellishment box, name plate in a cool picture frame, stamp set, goodie bag and bag with all the projects on their table when they got there. Also a bowl of mints and chocolate. We had a display table and lots of prizes. We also played bingo.
We offered two grand prizes. One was a Brusho set with water brushes and palatte knives. The other was a new stamp set out of the upcoming Annual Catalog and another stamp set with matching dies.
Everyone had a great time!
Happy Stamping!

Waterfront Masculine Class!

Hello Everyone!
I know its been along time since I have been here. I spent a week in snowy Wisconsin at the end of March. Had a great time visiting lots of relatives. 
Here are my cards for my class coming up next Tuesday the 24th. (I cant believe how fast April is going!).
I was asked to do a class using the Waterfront stamp set. It wasn't one I was going to buy but I did. Luckily it is not on the discontinued list!
Speaking of the discontinued list!! I guess actually it is called the retiring list. Have you seen it??
Also there are some cool things customers can pre order starting May 2nd!!
I will be showing some of them soon!!
If you would like to see a retiring list for the Occasions catalog you can check it out here .
For the Annual catalog retiring list you can see it here .

I just love these Foil papers. They are so pretty. Its so sad they will be gone in just a little over a week.
I have used the Beautiful Day stamp set with this card. The butterfly is embossed in gold and then colored in with Berry Burst ink with a water brush. Its a very simple but elegant card!

Spring Class!

Spring is officially here! (According to the calender anyway!) My next class in April will be a spring class. All flower cards in honor of spring.
This is one of the cards we will be doing!
Also the new Annual Catalog goes live on June 2nd. So we don't know yet what is going to be carried over or discontinued. So I decided to pull some stamp sets off the shelves and dust them off and actually use things out of the Annual Catalog. I have a bad habit of just using things in the Occasions or Holiday catalogs when they are out and forget about the Annual Catalog.
So I have pulled out Tranquil Tulips! I love this set. It is two step stamping but it is so easy and fun to do. You don't even have to have two different colors. Just one color or a nice detailed image.
I have used Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight for the tulips. The cone shape flowers are Rich Razzleberry and the little flowers are Pink Pirouette and Berry Burst.
I have also used the gorgeous Berry Burst Gold Edged ribbon. I do know this ribbon is coming back and I am so excited. The white and cream are coming back too. So you could make these ribbons in any color you would like!!
For more details on this card, sign up for my class on April 10th!
Happy Stamping!

Last Orchid Builder Card!

I realized the other day I forgot to post my last of 3 Orchid Builder Cards. This one I had done for a sketch challenge but didn't get it to them in time. I love the color combo for this card.
I used the same color for the orchids on all three cards but really like the way they all turned out totally different!
Happy Stamping!
