June card class

Here's the cards that we'll be doing this week at card class.

 
Lots of new product on these cards.  My favorite one is the upper left corner.  I love the marbled background and I didn't make a mess with shaving cream.

Well, wasn't yesterday a funny day?  Or are you going to tell me that it was a great day.  I was at Ashley for the Trading Days Festival sitting in the village office when someone said "oh my gosh.  Look at that"  The storm came up so fast that people didn't have time to run for cover.  It stormed so bad that we couldn't see anything.  And then to top it off my niece called me and said that I shouldn't try to get home because she didn't think I could get there.  She said that there were trees down everywhere and there was no power.  She called me later and said that she had gotten to my house and everything looked okay.  Thank you Jesus.  No one was hurt but there was lots of damage in the neighbor hood.  Here's a couple of pictures of the house just down the road from me.

 
But today the weather turned out beautiful so clean up has started.

Beautiful Bouquet

 Well, it's been so long since I've posted anything that I'm not sure I remember how to do it.  I'm finally getting back into the swing of stamping.  This card uses some new product out of the new catalog. 
 
The stamp set that I used is "Beautiful Bouquet" and the images were cut out using the new "Bouquet Bunch" framelits.  I wanted to have a ribbon on the cards but I don't have any Perfect Plum ribbon so I used one of the Bitty Bows in Lemon Lime Twist.  I used the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits to cut out the dragon flies.  The framelit has four dragon flies so I had to do a little trimming.  To get the different shades on the flowers I just stamped each flower twice without re-inking. 
I'm looking forward to the weekend because it's Trading Days in Ashley.  I'll be having my retired stamp sale on Friday at Penny Lane in Ashley.  And if you need a new catalog be sure to stop in and get one.  I'll also have lots of give-aways.  I'm trying to clear out the shelves in the Paper Palace so that I'll have room for new things.

Beauty and the Beast

When I went to On Stage last week I was so excited to see these Beauty and the Beast cards.  I was thinking that it was really cool that Stampin' Up! and Disney collaborated with stamps.  WRONG.  Look closely and you'll see that these cards are punch art.  Some people are so talented and I wish I had written down the name of the person who did these cards.  And I'll probably never make any like these because I don't think I have the patience to figure them out.  But I think they're beautiful.
