All Occasions Card Class

Happy Saturday, Stampers and Scrappers!

Yep! I'm once again posting to my long neglected blog.  AND, I have some cute cards to share with you from my recent All Occasions card buffet class.  Here is the lineup:

This first card features the Drapery Fold technique, and the card design is one I saw on Lyssa's blog and loved.  To learn the dimensions for scoring your designer paper, see this link.  We used the Regals Paper stack for the DSP on these.

This cute card features a free Sale-a-bration stamp set called "Tasty Trucks".  It is the cutest set that you can add cupcakes, ice cream, or tacos to, to make it a custom truck -- with adorable sayings to go with.  We used the new water color pencils and blender pens to color in the truck.

I called this card "Washi Tape Madness".  I have collected way too much washi tape over the years, and am determined not to buy any more until I have used some of my collection up! Ha ha!  For this card, we simply took a Whisper white panel and added our strips of washi tape, and then die cut the circle with the layering circle framelits.  That cute little scalloped border at the bottom, is made using the top edge of the best badge punch.

This card was inspired by a card SU posted with the new Glitter paper selection that was added to the Sale-a-bration freebies.  I didn't have any of that yet, so I used the Blushing Bride Glitter paper.  This card features the Stylish Stems thinlet dies.  I die cut the two flowers out of my white front panel, and then put two squares of the glitter paper behind the die cut outs.  Those little leaves are from the same die set -- I lined up all four leaf designs on my Big Shot plate and ran them through.  Some Blushing Bride sequins and retired ribbon that I had added that final pretty touch.

The Paisleys and Posies stamp set carried over from the Holiday catalog last year, and I hadn't had a chance to play with it much.  This is a super simple card using just the stamps, but the coordinating dies are also beautiful! Colors used here are: Blackberry Bliss (retired), Mint Macaron, and Sweet Sugarplum.

This "High Tide" stamp set from the Occasions catalog, is one of my favorite new sets.  You can stamp it simply, or go all out with this set.  Colors used: Smokey Slate, Dapper Denim, Whisper White, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Memento Black.

This Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set had not seen ink even once, so I had to use this set!  I had some retired Baked Brown sugar card stock, which I used for the base, and combined it with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  The swirls are stamped with the Falling Flowers stamp set -- another set I haven't used enough.  That gorgeous little embellishment on the front, is from the Occasions catalog -- Falling in Love embellshments.  I LOVE these!  They are so elegant, and add that perfect touch to this card!

This Mickey and Minnie idea, is from Pinterest, so can't take ANY credit for this design.  I thought it showed a brilliant way to use the swirly scribbles thinlet dies.  We used the bow builder punch for the bow.

The "Beautiful You" stamp set caught my eye the first time I looked at the Occasions Catalog.  It has so many lovely sentiments in addition to the pretty lady.  We used gold and clear wink of stella to color in her dress and hat.  The lacy look, is another die set I love! -- the So Detailed thinlet dies.  It cuts so easily, even though it is so intricate.  LOVE that! Colors used: Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla.

Last, but not least, this thank you card features two free Sale-a-bration stamp sets -- Delicate Details, for the lacy border on the bottom, and the So Very Much set that has that gorgeous thank you sentiment.  We stamped the Delicate details border in Early Espresso, and then stamped the Thank You in versa mark, and embossed it with copper embossing powder.  It looks so elegant in real life, and yet not hard to create.

Ok! that's it for today!  Sabina and I are having a "girls' weekend", as Daddy and brother are off to a jiu jitsu tournament!  We have play dates planned, and maybe a chocolate cake???

Don't forget to check out the Sale-a-bration freebies you can get for FREE with a $50 through the end of March!  There are some beauties this year!
