Flower Shop Card Class #2

Hi Stamping Friends!!

I wanted to share the remaining three cards we stamped yesterday at my Flower Shop card class. All participants recieved the Flower Shop and Sweet Essentials stamp sets, the matching Pansy punch and a package of Stampin' Dimensionals. All of these cards were inspired by cards I saw while browsing "the net". I've been pinning again on Pinterest, so you can find the originals on my boards. Check out the link to my Pinterest boards on my sidebar. I've got TONS of Stampin' Up! boards so don't get overwhelmed! ;)

Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, So Saffron DSP
Accessories: Pansy Punch, Tasteful Trim Sizzix Die, Gumball Green Ribbon, Elegant Butterfly Punch (for the leaves)

Paper: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Modern Medley DSP
Accessories: Pansy Punch, Blossom Punch, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Black EP

Stamps: Apothecary Art, Papillion Potpourri
Paper: Whipser White, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, Summer Starfruit
Accessories: Pansy Punch, Labels Collection Framelits, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Circle Punch, Summer Starfruit Ribbon, Fancy Fan EF

I had such a great time yesterday chatting and laughing and stamping with the gals that came to the class. Stamping is so much more than a hobby or a "job" for me. And my "customers" are more than just people who buy product from me. They are my special stamping friends and they bring sunshine to my world and a smile to my face. I appreciate them sharing my paper and ink joy!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Flower Shop Card Class

Hi Stamping Friends!!

Tomorrow I will be having my Flower Shop Card Class. This class features the Flower Shop and Sweet Essentials stamp sets, and the Pansy Punch. I wanted to share some of the cards we will be making. I can't share them all, because I'm still making some of them. YIKES!! Nothing like "last minute" to force you to get you to creative!! As always, these cards were inspired (or just outright copied) from other Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Left to my own devices, you would probably not see such cuteness. :)

Paper: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Whisper White, Brights Paper Stack DSP
Accessories: Polka Dots EF, Brmuda Bay Ribbon, Bird Punch (for leaves), Button (retired)

Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Old Olive, Pastel Paper Stack DSP

Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

This weekend, Stampin' Up! demostrators from all over the world are gathered together in Salt Lake City Utah for the annual Stampin' Up! convention. One of these days I'm going to attend and meet all of the amazing demonstrators who continually inspire me to improve my stamping abilities. Without them, I would be a very poor stamper. I dedicate these cards to them, since the idea for all of these cards were CASEd (Copy Ane Share Everything!) or "borrowed" from one Stampin' Up! demonstrator or another. Thanks for the continued inspiration and thanks for helping to keep my business going!!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!
Happy Stamping!

I'm still here!!

Hi Stamping Friends!!

It's been awhile since I've blogged, but I'm still here!!! May and June are always super busy months in our house. Between swimming, water polo, school, and church, there are about 100 things ending and another 50 things beginning. Into the second week of summer, my daughter told me she was looking forward to school starting so she wouldn't have such a busy schedule. Crazy!!

And to add to it, both older kids' water polo teams made it to the Junior Olympics!! So we will be heading down to SoCal on back-to-back weekends. Hubby will take the man child and I will take the girl. Should be fun.

In between all of that, I have continued to have my monthly stamping club. It's the only thing that keeps me stamping these days!! Here are some cards we did in June using new products from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. Enjoy!!

STAMPS: Label Love
PAPER: Daffodil Delight, Gingham Garden DSP, 
ACCESSORIES: Artisan Label Punch, Gingham Washi Tape, Boho Blossom Punch

STAMPS: Mosaic Madness, Petite Pairs
PAPER: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe
ACCESSORIES: Mosaic Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, Modern Mosaic EF, Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain, Basic Rhinestones

STAMPS: Wildflower Meadow, Sweet Essentials

ACCESSORIES: Wildflower Meadow EF, Boho Blossom Punch, Floral Fusion Sizzlit, Basic Rhinestones.

I CASEd all of these cards from ones I saw on Stampin' Connection, a website for Stampin' Up! demos. I "borrow" most of my ideas from other demos. So thankful for their willingness to share!! They always make me look good!

I'm working on putting a class together using the Flower Shop stamp set and the matching Pansy Punch. If you live in Tulare County and are interested in coming, let me know!!
