More card class

Valentines Day is coming so here's a couple of cards that I've made.  The first one is from my last card class.  And you'll notice that the envelope is decorated and the inside of the card.
 
 
The above card is using some of the DSP out of the Occasions catalog called Sending Love.  The border beside the paper is made with a free stamp set out of Sale A Bration called Delicate Details and the greeting is an old one called Bloomin Love.  And by old I don't mean retired.  It's been around a couple of years and it's still one of my favorites.  It's a beautiful set.
 
 
And on this card I used the Bloomin Love greeting again with an arrow out of the Jan. Paper Pumpkin kit and a heart cut out of the Sending Love DSP.  I need to get busy and made a bunch more valentines because it's only 8 more days until Valentine's Day.  Are you ready?

Moon Baby

 
 
Here's one of the cards that we did last week at card class.  It's with a stamp set called "Moon Baby"  I've decided that we need to stamp the outside of the envelope and the inside of the cards.  So here you can see the back of the envelope with a cute set of toys from the same stamp set.  I haven't shown you the inside of the card because it won't show up.  It's just stars stamped in versamark.  In real life you can see them but they don't show up good in photography.  This stamp set is in the new Occasions catalog.  If you need a catalog please let me know and I'll get one to you.  Happy Stamping.

Card class

Do you need a break from this weird, winter weather?  I think that today's the first day in about five days that we haven't had fog but we still don't have sunshine.  So if you're looking for something to do come to the Paper Palace (my house) on Thurs to make cards.  Or you can go to Penny Lane on Monday.  We'll be making 8 cards, 2 each of 4 different designs, with envelopes.  And the cost is only $15.00 or free with a minimum order.  Or if it's your first time then the class is free.  Don't want to come by yourself then bring a friend.  The more the merrier.  The only thing I ask is that you let me know that you're coming so that I can have everything ready.  That's right, I do all the prep work and you just stamp and assemble.  So if the weather is getting you down come and have a fun break with me.

Beautiful You, one more time

I'm sorry if you're getting bored with this stamp set but I love it so much.  And here I've paired it with another stamp set out of the Occasions catalog.  Mediterranean Moments is a great set and as someone who has been to Italy  it's very authentic.  And it works great with Beautiful You.  Here I stamped the girl and then masked it and stamped the background.  After I finished this one I thought that I should have made the umbrella red.  I think that would really pop the image.  I can hardly wait until next weeks card class when you'll get to use this set.

Hey, Chick

I've got more "Beautiful You" cards to show you but I decided to change things up a little with a valentine's day card.  Do you like chickens?  Then you're going to love the "Hey Chick" stamp set that is in the Sale A Bration catalog.  And the best part is that it's FREE.  That's right, free when you place a $50.00 order of other Stampin' Up! supplies. 
 
 
Let me know if you want this set.  You can place an order at any time or come to my next card class and order something then.  The next class is Jan 26th.  Come and enjoy some time away from home.

Beautiful You, again

 
I am so in love with this stamp set.  It's the best.  On this card I used the new thinlit die called So Detailed.  There are three dies in the set and they're all beautiful.  It doesn't show up much in this picture but I used the stitched framlit oval behind the image.  I used our new watercolor pencils to color the dress.  I'm having lots of fun playing with the pencils and I haven't even broken out the watercolor paper yet.  The back ground paper was lots of fun.  It's just Whisper White card stock that I painted with a drop of re-inker and a couple of drops of water.  Put the drops on a clear block and mixed together.  Used my aqua painter to apply to the paper.  That probably wouldn't be a good technique for a class because it takes a while to dry but it was really fun to do and I like how it turned out. 
Let me know if you need anything or you can always order from me on my Stampin' Up!  web page  http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/lynnschulz/
