June Stamp-a-stack class cards

These are my designs for the June Stamp-A-Stack class my friend and SU! upline Tina and I host every month. I found my Pinspiration for this cute but simple card, and changed very little. It is an awesome design. My class attendees really enjoyed recreating it. 

I took my initial design cues from this card on Pinterest, but had to change up the colors. I am not a big fan of the Delightful Dijon, so I swapped that out for the Bermuda Bay that also coordinates with the Bohemian DSP.

I appreciate all the amazing talent out there and the ability to gather all this wonderful inspiration onto one place for access any time. It's truly amazing.

July Paper Pumpkin cards

This may be my most favorite Paper Pumpkin kit yet. I love the stamp set. I haven't done much with the papers that came in this set, yet. I will find some inspiration. 

Here I have just randomly stamped the cups all over SU! Crumb Cake card stock in the Early Espresso ink. I then colored with the no longer available, but I still love them, Blendabilities. Super quick and simple, but so cute. 

Here I used the die cut tea cup shapes. I created a little tea bag pocket and decorated it with a portion of doily.

Attach it to the front of a card, here you see one pocket open, with the packaged tea bag slipped inside. I used a glue dot to hold it closed after filling it.

This is a gift card holder made with the Envelope Punch board. The sentiment is a sneaky peak at a new set, A Little Something, coming soon in the Holiday Catalog.

I stamped and then fussy cut out the tea cup. Then see how I was able to create a mirror image? Ugh!!! Not as easy as it looks. I followed this tutorial, but none of my inks created a dark enough stamped image. So I finally just got out an extra fine point Sharpie and traced over all my light stamped images. Not perfect but it works. Fussy cut the mirror image and away you go.

Same gift card holder decorated for Christmas with yet another sneaky peach of paper, Merry Moments, also available in the Holiday Catalog.

This is the inside of the gift card holder. Very cool! The tea/coffee cups are perfect for decorating a Starbucks gift card.

June Paper Pumpkin cards

These are my completed June SU! Paper Pumpkin kit cards. I love this months kit. Love the stamps. Love the ink pad. Love the girly cards and the masculine cards. This monthly subscription kit just keeps getting better and better. 

This masculine design, I didn't change much either, from their original intent. I didn't want to, because I loved it straight out of the box. But now that I see all the adorable alternatives on Pinterest, that other people have made, I want to order a refill kit and do some of the alternate designs.

So much fun in a box.

Medallion card

How much do I love that this medallion stamp is from the $1 bins at Joann's and the polka dots were made with a pencil eraser dipped in the ink pad? Very, very much!!!

I used SU! inks in Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango on Crumb Cake card stock. A few rhinestones, some bakers twine and a sentiment layered up on different punched coordinating card stocks and you have a finished note card. Quick and easy and inexpensive. Can't beat that.

CASE'd birthday cards

This card is CASE'd from this beauty I found on Pinterest. As you see I loved it so much I changed very little. I guess I just did more....of everything. The leaves, the butterflies, the inking around the edges. I used sequins instead of rhinestones.

The leaves are from SU! Kinda Eclectic in Wild Wasabi ink, the butterflies are also SU! Kinda Eclectic in Strawberry Slush ink. The sentiment is SU! Endless Birthday Wishes.

French swirls background card

I made these cards a while back. After Rubber Stamp Convention in Sac, where I had purchased this Deep Red French Swirls background stamp. I stamped it using my MISTI and Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I used CTMH epoxy dots to add the ombre effect with the dots. Layers and layers of card stock and a bow and its all done. A simple but elegant note card. 

Same idea here, just a change up of colors and the addition of a sentiment on the front. (Sorry for the blurry pic.)

I absolutely love this stamp. And the MISTI allowed me to stamp multiple times to get the deep dark all over image. I love it!
