Note card class

These five darling note cards are available to you in a class on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at Schroeder's Department Store at 12:30. 
It is free with a $45 order or $15 without an order.
The class uses theThoughtful Banners set on page 73 and the matching banner punch. The papers are from the Pop of Pink pack on page 172.
If you would like this class but can't come, I can put it in the mail for you or you could pick it up. The pieces are all included but you would need to do the stamping yourself as per SU! policy. 
It includes the five note cards and all of the materials to make them into the cheerful little greetings they are here. Can you imagine the joy one of them would bring to one of your friends that could use a little cheer?

Happy Fourth of July!

Let's all say some extra prayers for our country this weekend!
Also have a great time with your family and friends at all the celebrations you attend.

These cards were made with the Swirly Scribbles framelits. The one on the left is made with the scraps from the one on the right. Don't you think that the flag made with the scraps is just as nice as the one made with the cut? I just can't throw away all that good card stock when, with a little extra love and care it can be turned into such a neat card. 
I added 13 stars for our original colonies made from the border heart punch.

More Stamp Along Cards

First of all, I would like to thank all of you that have left comments on my blog. 
Without you, there isn't a purpose for writing this. It really helps me to know what you like to hear about. If you have any suggestions, I would like to hear those also. 
Now, here are the cards I finished yesterday.
This one is done with the new Flirty Flamingo color and the Love You Lots hostess set. 
The same one that has those cute Hedgehogs! 

Which little person wouldn't love to get this "monster" card?
A stamping friend sent this along for me in a swap. 
Thank you, Liz, they are darling! She had one in each of the new in colors but that would be too difficult to prepare that many choices for one card at the Stamp Along. 
Maybe I will bring them all so you can vote on the one you like the best.
This is the one that I chose for this time. 

Do you have someone that has a birthday near the Fourth of July? 
This card would be perfect for a Patriotic birthday. 
Or just leave the greeting off and make it as a note card. 

Do you have a lot of scraps? Here is a perfect way to use a few of them. 
You get to choose Birthday or Thinking of You and the pattern you wish to use.
Just the rounding of a few corners really makes it look like something other than just a square piece of paper! 

Thanks for stopping to take a look at the cards I have been working on for this Stamp Along. 
Hope to see you there on Monday!

Some of the cards for the Stamp Along

The Stamp Along will be on Monday, June 13th. 
Here are a few more of the cards that are ready to go. 

This butterfly is made with Tip Top Taupe and Elegant Eggplant ink.
Can you see it in there?
The Timeless Textures set is used along with the Watercolor Wings set.

This one combines two of the new sets. 
Those cute little hedgehogs are a part of the Love you Lots set that is for Hostesses. 
Did you know that a $150 order qualifies you for hostess/stampin' rewards? 
Check it out on page 197 in the new catalog. 
Do you need a new catalog? 
I will have some extra ones at the Stamp Along if you don't have one yet. 

This one will have the option of a Thinking of you or a sympathy card. 
Some of the new designer series paper (DSP) is used on it. 
Those beautiful flowers are from the Remarkable You set.

Just noticed that I forgot to crop the last two photos. Sorry! 

Just a reminder that the hostess code for on line orders until the Stamp Along is

Graduation and Swirly Birds

Do you ever use part of the invitation to make the card for an event? 
That is what I did for this one. 
That picture in the corner was on the invitation telling us where he is attending college next year.
There is another part of it on the inside but I didn't think of taking a picture of that. 
Sorry. The party was last weekend so the card is gone. 

Here are a few more that I have done but the invitations were by way of FB and email. 
The one with glimmer is for my Grand daughter. I can't believe that she is graduating already! 
She is at prom tonight as I write this. 

Here is a card using the new Swirly Birds die cut. 
The more I use this set, the better I like it. It has a lot of little parts so I am thinking that it will be better to do a class with it and have you do several cards with it. 
Here is one that will be at the Stamp Along though.
I have used some of the retired Designer Series Paper (DSP) on this one but there is a new embossing folder on there and the Thoughtful Banners bundle was also used. 
The punch is neat as I punched both of those banners at the same time. 

There will be more cards using this set for sure! 
I will be doing a class using this bundle on the 29th of June. I will have samples and more info on that at the Stamp Along. 
The hostess code for on line orders is 
until the Stamp Along. 
Thank you!

New In Colors

Here are two cards I just did with the new In Colors. 
This one is similar to one I saw on Linda Bauwin's blog. It was done in a retired color and thought I would try it in the new color of Flirty Flamingo. I also added the matching ribbon. 

The next one is very similar. It was done with the Sweet Sugarplum color. 

I have one in the Dapper Denim color also but since I got the latest update the pictures are just not hopping in here like they used to so will have to devote some time to that but not tonight. 
Both of these cards will be available for you to make at the Stamp Along on the 13th.
Which of these two is your favorite?

Time to smell the flowers.

How often do you take time to smell the flowers?
The flowers this spring have been fabulous! I guess they like the cooler weather. 
Our daffodils were awesome this year and we shared them with several people. 
I especially miss my Mom at daffodil time. She always enjoyed the bouquets we took to her. 
They are gone for this year but here are some of the others that are still here.


Forget Me Nots inside the Raspberry wire. 


This is a new one that I acquired from a friend last year. 

The mini Bleeding Heart.

The regular Bleeding Heart.



And a tulip from years gone by.

This beautiful Apple tree and Lilac bush are in the next yard but we enjoy their beauty. 

I have also been working with flowers in the stamping department. 
I just did this class at Schroeder's last week. 

There are two more cards that are included. 
I will be doing it again on June 15th. 
If you are interested in this class, let me know. I have room for a few more on that date. 
Seven cards, free with a $40 order from the new catalog or $25 without an order. 
Schroeder's 12:30 Wednesday June 15th

I have a few of the new products from the new catalog and have been playing with them. 
I will show you some of them next time I post. 
If you are placing an order between now and the Stamp Along on the 13th, please use the hostess code:
Thank you!
