As I called my card class regulars yesterday to get a final count for class, by popular vote they decided they did not want to make the stationery box with all the cards and tags they just wanted to make cards. So last night I came up with the following ideas, thanks to my Pinterest stash. All the kits are made and ready to go and I was in bed by 2:00 am, so it was a productive day.
Here are the cards I came up with and under each one I will give you the link as to where I found it and credit to who designed them, so be sure to go check out those sites as well for many more wonderful card ideas.
This sample came from the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog preview for one of the fall suites. The flowers are cut out of a sheet from the Painted Autumn DSP pack and the background paper is from the same pack. Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog will be released September 1, 2017, so if you would like a catalog contact me or if you already have a demonstrator then please contact them to request your catalog.
This is my idea simple, aged, rustic.
On this card there is supposed to be a little banner at the bottom of the card in the Night of Navy card stock with the sentiment, but I thought it looked nice just like this so I put the sentiment on the inside only. I have cut out all the little banner strips for each card that way the class will have the option to put it on the front if they wish. The idea for this card came from Stampin with Sandi
The background DSP (Designer Series Paper) also came from the Painted Autumn paper pack. The stamps came from the Merry Cafe’ stamp set also in the New 2017 Holiday Catalog coming out September 1, 2017. The little gift tag I made myself using my Crimper, the smallest hole punch on my Crop-A-Dile and then I punched out the little heart using my Stampin’ Up Owl punch. You can also order the Corrugated Elements tags through my Stampin’ Up website (order # 144158). Now this idea came from Stampin’ Pretty.
I hope that you enjoyed these samples, but please go check out these other ladies as well they have some really cool card ideas.
Here is how I had to work last night.
While I was cutting out all those flowers. If I moved too much his paw on top of my arm would grab my arm with his claws.
After about half an hour of holding on to my arm he moved over to the other side of my desk (I guess I was moving too much and it was disturbing him) and fell asleep. This is how he sleeps most of the time, with his little tongue sticking out. Isn’t he so cute. He is getting so big now that he takes up a majority of my work space, but he still thinks he fits perfect.
Thank you all for stopping by and I hope that you have a great rest of your week.
