You've Got Style!

This set is so cute! 
It may be for a select group of friends though.
Do you have a friend that would appreciate it? 
Come and make it at the August Stamp Along! 

This is the  front. I have colored her coat with the silver marker that is now retired.
I used tiny circles so the color wasn't so solid and that made it look a little more like fur.
It doesn't show up on the photo but there is Wink of Stella in her bubbles, on her fingers, and even on her glasses! 
The layer is Elegant Eggplant to give it the Regal effect!

It is a Z fold card and this is the inside. 
I love the cat! You can include it or not. 

Don't forget to leave a comment. You can't win if you don't enter! 
The hostess code until the Aug Stamp Along is
"Thank you!" to all that place orders with me!
I appreciate your business!

More Stamp Along Cards

 I almost forgot to do a Christmas Card for 
Christmas in July 
as I have been doing for the last several years!
There will be one there. 
Here are some of the other choices that you will have. 
This one uses the Eclectic Layers thinlits. 
This one is my favorite but there are a few more in there that I am going to be using soon. 
You all know that the more we use them; the more we like them!
I have paired it with the Vertical Greetings that I don't use as often as I thought I would. 

I just got the new folders and this card shows off several of them. 
I even packed one or two that I didn't use on the samples but you may choose to use them instead of the one that I used. 
This ribbon is pretty special, also. It starts out very narrow. 
You can gently pull it to fan out as I did with the ends on this "bow."

Here is the "other" daisy card that I mentioned in the last post. 
There is a leeway for creativity on this one, as you can see in the picture. 

The Light House card uses that special Shimmery White card stock.
It really gives a card a special look. 
Not sure why I don't use it oftener as it is easy to work with
 and gives such a nice look to the finished card. 

I found a pack of precut cards from awhile ago and thought you might like to 
help me use them up! 
It isn't Stampin' Up! but the stamps are! 

There you are!
The Christmas one will have to be a surprise. 
I will do that one tomorrow (Sunday) and if I post it after it is finished, we will be at the Stamp Along when it comes out!
See you at the Stamp Along on Monday, I hope.
Thank you!

Cards for the Stamp Along

Here are a few of the cards that are ready to go to the Stamp Along on Monday. 
Now that the weather is warm enough, it is nice to sit out and relax...between rainfalls. 

These flowers look like they have been stamped twice but that is the effect you get just from a single stamping. Quick and easy! 

Here is that darn cute little piggy again. 
She is carrying a giant daisy. 
So glad that the daisy punch is back in inventory! 
There is another card using the daisy punch also but didn't get its picture taken yet. 
Maybe tomorrow. 

This one is a note card. Or you could slip in a "Happy Birthday" 
instead of the "Just a Note" depending on the kind of card you need the most. 

What do you think? 
Which one is your favorite? Which ones will you be making? 
If you leave a comment and don't include your name, I won't know who won if your comment is selected as the winner.

Lady in her Gown and Comment Winner

Remember the Gorgeous You lady in the gown from the last Stamp Along?  
She is coming back with a different look to her gown. 
What do you think? Do you like this one better? 
Really, you could make either one in your favorite color. 
There are a few of the Fresh Fig color left so that would be a choice for you, also. 

This is another card that is coming back so if you didn't get to make it in June, you can in July! 

This Happy Birthday one is coming back with the folder this time! Sorry, that the folder didn't make it to the Stamp Along. I already have several of them packed so you can chose which one you would like to use for your background. 
There are also several color choices from which you can choose. 
If you mention this post at the Stamp Along on the 10th of July you can make an extra one of these cards (Happy Birthday) pictured here as a bonus! 

Every once in awhile I put all the names from the comments in a container and pick one. 
If you have left a comment on my blog in the last three months, you had a chance to win. 
Since Shirley leaves the most comments, it didn't surprise me that she is the winner. 
Thanks to all that comment. It is much appreciated! 
Shirley, I will have some things from which you can pick at the Stamp Along.

Thank you for using the code and for your orders!

Tie Dye background

Do you like to do different techniques? 
I saw this one and had to try it. 
I will be doing a class on Thursday, July 6, at Schroeder's. It will be $5 for the two cards or free if you would rather place an order of $15 (or more) at the class. Attendance is limited so please call or email to be sure there are supplies. It will start at 2:15. Yes, that is much later than usual.
I did change the scallop layer color so it shows up better. 
If you have already signed up...I have you counted. 
Please bring a glue stick if you have one. Don't go and buy one just for this.
