Sweetest Birthday

This is another Clean & Simple sketch card that we made at my last class in August. Since August is my birthday month, we had a birthday card class where we made 3 different bday cards....I thought it was a good idea! I really love this cupcake stamp, just don't use it enough!

Star Birthday Celebrations

Clean & Simple is a blog on my blogroll that I check just about every day, the style they have is just what I like! This card is from a sketch they had on there awhile ago, and I am sure I will use it again and again, especially when I have some dp to use up! All of the dp on this card is from the To The Nines collection, very nice paper! I figured this was a very masculine bday card, and we can always use more of those in our stashes!!!

Happy Birthday Circles

I am very glad that I bought this stamp set (as I am sure you can tell by now) since I seem to keep reaching for it. Of course I am all for showing my guests how you can use the same stamp set for many different cards so they are more willing to buy a set like this one! At the time of this class I did not have the blue stamp pad so we just went all pink with the ink (hee hee) and added the blue for an accent color. The Happy Everything set is another that I love, it makes great cards even better!

Celebrate Circles

I love looking at SCS for ideas when I have a new stamp set, there are so many great ideas! I was looking for some more ideas for the Circle Circus set and came upon a card very similar to this in a few different colors. I really love the razzleberry color so I decided to use that on this card. Again, a very simple, clean card.....seems to be my "thing"!

Friend to Friend Topiary

I saw this on SCS when I was prepping for my July stamp camp and just had to "copy" some of it. I used the curly label punch cut in half for the planter, I thought it worked very well! We used all the new "in" colors and the circle circus stamp set, very simple card!

This is another stamp camp card.....I LOVE this stamp so much!!! I saw a similar card and thought this stamp would work perfectly and I was correct! As we all end up doing, I have been hoarding dp forever and needed to start using some of it up so I could buy more....sneaky, but it works! I am thinking of doing this exact card in different colors and with other dp, so very easy!

Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you will be back again soon!

For You Leaves

This is a card I made a few months ago and did not get a good picture of, so I had to retake the picture! I LOVE this card, so very simple but with some nice elements added and the color combo is awesome!!! I have been looking at a lot of samples over the past 6 months and believe I came upon a sketch like this during that time, and I will be using it again! It is so sad that this set is retired as I love it, but I intend on keeping it for awhile and getting to use it again in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Thinking of You

My goodness! Where has the time gone??? I meant to have this one posted awhile ago and just saw that it is waiting to be posted....oops! I still have a few more cards from my classes to post on here with another 3 to add from last to get back into routine! Of course it would help to have a camera that would work and not need to borrow the daughters camera!

So, for the card, I made this a few months ago at a friends house to show off this set.....It happens to be one of my favorite images with so many occasions to use it for! We used blender pens with the ink pads to color the tree and leaves (they were very kind and did not mind that much work) Then we stamped the sentiment and layered it onto the card. Very simple but pretty.

Thanks for stopping by and I will try to get those other cards posted very soon, so make sure and check back! Thanks for all the comments as well!!!
