Today's Card Class

Hi Friends,
I'm a little late in the day to be posting to my blog but I wanted to share some cards that we made in two different classes I had today. These are regular monthly stamping groups and I always look forward to coming up with some fun ideas for them. They are seasoned stampers and it's rare to totally surprise them but I try to show them new product and special promotions when I can.

The first card we did featured the "Rooted In Nature" bundle which is an awesome bundle to take the place of the retiring "Lovely as a Tree. This bundle is even better because it includes some sentiments and also dies to cut several of the stamp images.   The card we made featured a design that was suitable for a possible Father's Day card or graduation card, both timely this time of year!

 My main colors are Soft Suede and Shaded Spruce. They are really lovely together!  We heat embossed the "You Are Wonderful" sentiment on the wood grain background.

This is the inside of this card, which most people chose to do.

The second card featured the "Everything Is Rosy" collection of SU products which is still available through May 31st, while supplies last. (Don't wait to long if you like this collection of SU products.) I'm so in love with this color combination!  It is striking, elegant and really fun to play with. I featured this set on a blog post a couple of weeks ago but decided since it was still available to show my ladies some ideas. This is the card we made with the set:

We did quite a bit of stamping on the inside of the card to see how fun the stamps are. It's a great floral and leaf set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper is one very good reason to get this set. The other reason is the stamp and die combo!

For our last card, I wanted to show them the upcoming new In-Colors. I handed out catalogs and was excited to reveal the new colors!

This was an easy card to assemble with each strip being 4" x 1". I had them put them on the black background in any color order and then we did some stamping with a new set that is coming on June 4th, "Free as a Bird".  They seemed to enjoy seeing the new In Colors up close. I'll be focusing on them again when we are closer to June 4th!

We had a fun day and I'm grateful for the people that want to come to my classes and stamp with me! If you live in the Bozeman area and want to check out classes, contact me and I'll give you all the details!  You can also check out my website and the calendar link I have there:

In the meantime, stay warm! It's almost Memorial Day and that means extremely lousy weather in Montana!

Happy Stampin'!
