Sale-A-Bration Card Class

Hey All!

These are the cards from the latest card class! There were a variety of styles for any occasion!

For the 1st card we created a gatefold card using the Growing Green stamp set, & the 1st Edition designer paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

here's the inside :)

This card has many of the Sale-a-bration goodies offered only until March 31st!!! We used Punch Bunch & So Happy for You stamp sets, and Ice Cream Parlor designer paper. (cased from Ilena Crouse)

The next card was created with the Create a Cupcake stamp set & Build a Cupcake punch. Simply adorable!!! We created texture on the frosting with one of the Big Shot embossing folders. Unique card size was created with the Big Shot Scallop Die cut. (card idea cased from Debbie Henderson)

The Build a Blossom stamp set & coordinating punch are AWSOME!!! Featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog, page 12. There are so many options with the flowers... (Card was cased from a fellow demonstrator on the Stampin' Up! Stampin' Connection)

The last card was created with the Clearly for You & Cute & Curly stamp sets. The class learned how to re-size the new textured impressions framed tulips embossing folder. Background was stamped with the woodgrain background stamp.

Thanks to all that attended, & if you missed this one, hope you can attend next time!

Occassions Mini Cupcake Cards

Well, I must say, the Stampin' Up! Occassions Mini Catalog has been one of my favorite mini catalogs ever!!! It is full of must have itms... and I think the Create a Cupcate stamp set & Build a Cupcake punch (featured on page 22) are definitely on that list! This stamp set & matching punch are absolutely adorable.

Here are a few swap cards featuring the Create a Cupcake stamp set. And, don't forget Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st!!! With a $50 purchase receive a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item!!!

The Create a Cupcake & Build a Cupcake Punch are featured on this card! We used the Scalloped Square Big Shot Die Cut to make a unique card! Also, used an embossing folder on the cupcake frosting to add texture! (Cased from Debbie Henderson)

I really like this one! We used the new Framed Tulip Textured Empressions Embossing Folder and I taught the gals how to re-size the folder! I love how it turned out! We used the new Clearly for You stamp set for focal image, & Cute & Curly stamp set for the sentiment. Soft Suede card base was stamped with the woodgrain background stamp! This card could be a great masculine card!

Thanks to everyone that attended. If you missed this class, I hope you can attend next time :) And, contace me if you would like for me to share any of these techniques with you & your friends at your' in-home workshop!
