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.

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. 

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

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. 

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.
