Custom Card Class - Rasberry Tart

These are some pictures of a Stamp Class I am offering on June 3! These cards feature the Raspberry Tart designer paper. This is a unique class in which participants will make 8 cards with a blank spot on each one to add the sentiment to fit their need at the time the card is given. A variety of sentiments will be stamped on “stickers” that you punch with the large oval punch and you peel the back off of and place on your card when needed. Each card has a white base with designer paper and a scallop edge. These cards would be a great gift. A matchbox using the Big Shot holds the sentiments. If giving this as a gift, you could also include postage stamps in the matchbox. The idea for the custom cards concept is from Nichole Heady.

Embossing Made Easy!

These two cards were made at a class I offered. They are EASY to make, but look beautiful! They were made using the Big Shot and the SU!'s Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder. The sentiment was created using the Oval All stamp set and Oval Scallop Punch that are featured in the mini catalog. The base of the card is shimmer white cardstock which may be hard to tell in the photo.

Flower Seed Packet

This is a "card" that holds a packet of seeds - a great little gift for gardener! The package was made using a tutorial found on this blog. I used the Big Shot for the flower (SU! simple flower embosslit) and leaves (SU! little leaves sizzlits die). The scallop border punch was used on the belly band which slides off to reveal the seeds inside.

Urban Oasis Father's Day

I often find it hard to create a masculine card. But, here is one for Father's day that I created without any frills or girly embellishments:) This card uses the Urban Oasis Designer Paper which has more masculine designs than some of the other designer paper. And, this month, SU is having a special on designer 3 packs and get the 4 pack for free! Email me if you would like to take advantage of this special.
