Hello and happy 2015. I certainly hope that this will be a good year for all of us. 🙂
I have some great cards to show you. We did these in my class that I hold the second Tuesday and Wednesday of the month. I generally have about 6 people per class. A good group!!
What is also great about these cards is that I used 2 new sets from the Occasions Catalog that launched on January 6th. What’s even greater is that SAB (sale-a-bration) started too! Free SAB item for every $50 spent.
Now – on to the cards!
This is a sweet card that I fashioned as a valentine. However it would make a great birthday or get well card too! Simple coloring and cutting!
Stamps – Cheerful Critters, Making Spirits Bright (ret) Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Pretty in Pink Marker (ret) and Smoky Slate Blendabilities in the lightest shade. Blendabilities Color Lifter

This next card is just so elegant. I thought it would be perfect for a wedding card! One of my gals at class has been asking for one. There are two pictures so you can see the shimmer on it.

Where are the butterflies? This is why this set is amazing and versatile! This is a semi-masculine card that is really elegant, but didn’t use lots of stuff. There are so many components to this set, it’s hard to decide what to like best!
