August Card Class


Hello all…

My August card class was quite the night. I am confident everyone loved the cards but one took a bit longer than expected. The good news is that I have one new person who has never, ever, stamped. (who knew they existed?!) It is such a joy to see new people get excited over the transformation of paper and ink.

Wetlands Birthday

Many people use this stamp set for the men in their life, and it’s a great choice. But I really feel this set could be for anyone. It can also be used for a variety of occasions. I love how one stamp set can be used for multiple things. I love this card dearly, but I admit it’s a total case from That is a great thing about stampers is that we love to share our ideas. It is just good karma to pay homage when possible!


Stamps –  Wetlands and And Many More

Paper –  Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso card stock. Watercolor Paper

Flower Patch Screen Card

This was the troublemaker I told you about. It really wasn’t a hard card, just a lot of steps, a ton of supplies and one stamp set. Add  9 stampers to the mix on weeknight … you get the idea. I love how it turned out and would maybe add a layer or two next time, but still – love it! When folded, this fits in normal envelope from Stampin’ Up!
