Flower Patch Class cards


These are the cards that were included with the purchase of the Flower Patch set bundle. 
They were pretty intensive to make but everyone enjoyed the finished project.


This one is a special fold so you see the front and the inside of that one. 
Love the Blackberry Bliss color!


This one is all over Pinterest and I knew that I would have to make it as soon as I saw it! 
There is a little bit of a cheat sheet if you would like to try one of your own. 
Enjoy!

Table settings and a Flower Patch card

Last week a friend and I went to the Museum and saw the table setting display. 
Very enjoyable! 
Some people have wonderful imaginations. 
Here are a few of the displays. 
Enjoy. 





Today a few friends and I went to a luncheon and fashion show that had some beautiful table settings. 
This is the table at which we were seated. 


Following are a few of the other beautiful table settings.




We were served a wonderful salad, main course, and a warm apple strudel with ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert. 
This was the main course.


It was delicious!
Wish I would have remembered to picture the salad and dessert! 

After the meal we watched a fantastic fashion show. 
These are the models that were so kind to give their time. 
Each one must have changed, at least, five times! 


Wonderful day! 

Here is a card that was inspired by one that I saw on Sandi's blog: stamping withsandi.com


This is my version and it is all packed and ready for the November Stamp Along. 
I just did a class using the Flower Patch set and Flower Fair Framelits dies. This card also uses the Dotty Angles set. I will show you those cards tomorrow. 
This one is quite plain and simple by comparison to those done in the class.

Winner, More Halloween, and new stamp


First of all the winner of the drawing this month was Debbe. 
From now until the next Stamp Along, the comments will be in the drawing. 

I saw this card on a blog and saved it to copy. Now, I can't read the name so can't give credit for it.
Isn't it cute? 


Below is my version. 
I did these two cards with the guests at the workshop last night. 
They seemed to enjoy doing them. 


Here are a few more pictures of the process of making the cute little pop up center of the Halloween card. These cards are a little too complicated to do at the Stamp Along but I love doing this kind. 
If you do too, let's do a workshop together! 


This is a new release that is available now. 
It is called Gentle Peace. It is photopolymer and is $15.95. 
It will be a good one to use with the blendabilities for a beautiful stained glass look. 
The recommended block sizes that you need are A, F, and H. They are not included. 
I hope to have a card using this set at the next Stamp Along so will be placing an order this weekend. 
If you would like this set, let me know and I will order one for you. The total cost would be $18.43. 
Email me before 5:00 on Sunday and I'll get you one for $17. Just remind me that you saw it here. 
Thanks. 


Here is a sample from the SU! website.

Halloween and Stamp Along


I love Halloween cards! 
This little ghost from Fall Fest reminds me of Casper the Friendly Ghost. Do you remember Casper? 


Not everyone sends Halloween cards so I have a selection of Birthday, Thinking of you, and other cards ready for you to make at the Stamp Along. 




Isn't this little bird house cute? I saw it on someone's blog but I don't remember which one. 
It is made with the What's Up punch. 
Hope you can come and make one of these.

Stampin' Up! Work of Art

The Work of Art set is WONDERFUL! 
if you don't have it yet, you need it! 
Here are the ten cards that were presented in the class I did recently.
There are many more that I could have done. This set just keeps on giving! 


Here are the same ten cards in two pictures so you can see them a little better. 
Many of them require the same stamp used several times, in different colors, on the same card. 
That is possible when everyone has their own stamp set there. 


Some of these cards may show up at the Stamp Along in the future. 
There are several that use the stamp without switching color and those are the ones that could go to the Stamp Along. 
Which ones would you like me to have at the Stamp Along? 
Let me know!


The winner of the drawing last time was Dorothy. 
You could be the winner next month. 
Be sure to leave a comment so your name can get in the drawing. 
All comments between now and October 12th will be in the next drawing. 
I have another similar journal to give away in October. 
Will you be the winner? 


The hostess code for on line orders this month is

Thank you in advance for any order! 
I appreciate you so much!

Border size makes a difference!

These four cards are the same except for the size of the borders. 
They sure have a different look though, don't they? 
Which one do you like the best? 


They all use the Sweet Taffy DSP along with a Daffodile Delight card base and Tangelo Twist layer except the one on the lower left that doesn't have the Tangelo Twist layer. 
The Flower Shop set and Pansy punch along with Petite Petals set and the Petite Petal punch were used for the flowers. The Artisan Label punch was used for the saying. 
Please leave a comment telling me which one you think will show up at the Stamp Along.
I have another little journal to give away to the winner of the drawing this month. 

If you need some stamping supplies and can't make it to the Stamp Along please use the hostess code

This links your order to the Stamp Along order to increase the total. That helps me get more goodies. If you don't link it the "goodie" potential is lost.  :-(
Thanks!

Stampin' Up! Halloween

Fall is my favorite season! 
There are so many fun cards to make at this time of the year. 
Here is another one that is coming to the Stamp Along next Monday. 


This little ghost is so cute. It reminds me of Casper, the Friendly Ghost! 
It is so easy to cut the ghost and pumpkin with the matching framelits! The set is photopolymer and is called Fall Fest. The matching framelits are Fun Fall and you can get them together in a bundle and save 15%.  The BOO is also cut with the Little Letters framelits. It is a little challenging to get the middle parts of the letters raised with dimensionals but so worth it and, since the framelits did the cutting, there was time for that. It would look nice without the insides in the letters also. 
The saying is from Mingle all the Way set. It has four other sayings that will take you through New Years! You can find all of these in the Holiday mini catalog. If you need one of the catalogs, let me know or pick one up at the Stamp Along. 
Do you send cards for Halloween?
