One Stamp, So Many Layouts

I'm starting to sell some of my old, retired stamps. Got to make room for new ones. So before I sold this set to my friend, I made a bunch of cards and promised I would post them so she could get a few ideas. That was months ago and I'm finally getting around to it. So here they are for your viewing pleasure.

Birthday for my Father in Law

I've kept this paper and stamp set just to make cards for my FIL who loves Hawaii. So this is fun.

Cute color B-day

I saw this cute color combination: Real Red, Baja Breeze, and Marina Mist and I wanted to make a cute birthday card for my friend. The stamp set is retired, and the ribbon is not SU!, but isn't it cute.
And I made a cute cupcake box to go with it.

Punched Pumpkins

I love these punched pumpkins. You can make them out of any circle or oval punch. I used pumpkin pie (of course), tangerine tango, and peach parfait and sponged the edges in the same ink. This first card is small 3 1/2 by 5 1/2

This next one is bigger, 4 x 6. I was struggling to find a way to use these pumpkins for this card and then I saw a sketch on the Clean and Simple blog. Both cards are pretty simple, but so much fun. I have a few more ideas for these pumpkins, hopefully I'll have some time to do it.

Neighbor Treat

I saw these sour cream containers in the SU! magazine for Demos and I just had to make them. And I added these matching taffy's inside. They are really easy to make, however next time I'd make them a little bigger, starting with a 6 x 6 piece of paper.

Triple Layer Flower Punch

These are some more cards done with my favorite punch.

I saw a picture of this card on several blogs, it was a sample created by someone at SU! I just changed up the colors.
This one's a little off balanced, but I still like it.

Another cute card

I made this card for a swap I was in. I love the color combo: black, white, and baja breeze.

Jack's Baby Announcement

This is the baby announcement I made. It's a double slider card and the instructions can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.

It uses another retired set, but I use it so much for personal use, I'll never get rid of it.

Happy Birthday with my favorite punch

I wasn't sure I needed this triple layer flower punch, but I've seen so many cute things done with it, I had to buy it. And I'm so glad I did. This uses several of the punched out pieces.
And a matching cupcake box.
And then, the punch used as a bow. You'll be seeing this at Christmas.

Another Diaper Bag

I love making these diaper bags. This was for a friend who didn't find out the gender, so I had to make gender neutral cards. These are old stamp sets that I keep around for babies.

A cute card

I'm still trying to play catch up.

I saw this cute card by Melany Watson, and I just had to CASE it. I didn't have all the same supplies, so I improvised a few things.

Yes, the stamp set is retired, but I want to post anyway.

Halloween Class

I don't love Halloween, but I do love to give cute little gifts to people, so that's what this class is all about, cute little cards and gifts.

These two cards are quick and easy and the set of two will be $3.00.

This is a super cute pumpkin treat I saw on the internet and now I can't find where I first saw it. When I do, I'll link back to it. But the cost for this project is $1.50.

The next project is a luminary. I used a battery operated light. Totally, cool. The cost is $2.oo without the light $3.00 with the light.
This is another quick and easy project, perfect for kids. It's filled with Hershey's nuggets. The patterned paper may be different. Cost is $1.00.
And I just love this one. The picture isn't great because it's been dark and dreary around here, but he is a cute little spider, hiding a peanut butter cup underneath. The cost for this is $1.50.

Classes will be on Wednesday October 12th, at 10 or 7. Please RSVP by Tuesday, 801-426-4886, or just comment here.

Technique Class #1

So how far behind am I? These are pictures of the projects we made last Wednesday and I was supposed to post it before class. Oops.

This first card uses the baby wipe technique to make your own multi-colored stamp pad.
Colors: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush, Marina Mist
Stamps: Printed Petals
Accessories: Square Lattice EF, Rhinestone Brad, Curly Label Punch, Scallop Edge Punch

This second card uses the embossed resist technique. After embossing your image clear, you sponge ink on top and the image appears.
Colors: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Lovely Lilac
Stamps: Printed Petals, Swirls and Curls Verses

And this is the last project. A great way to keep your notebook from getting ruined in your purse. It's a really great gift. It uses the clear stamp cases and a jr. legal pad cut down to fit. It was so cute.

Page A Day in May 16

Yeah, so it's not May anymore, but this is the last page I finished for my challenge. No I didn't get 30 pages done, but 16 isn't bad. It's more than I did all of last year, so I pretty happy with it. I may need to challenge myself to a page a day in September. I really have some catching up to do.

I'm not in love with this page, it was much cuter in my head, but it's done and it's time to move on.
