I am hosting a Pun Fun stamping class on Saturday, Feb 23 at 11am. If you missed out this time and love these cute cards then be on the look out for a make up date! We will be creating 8 cards (one for each stamp) and a Coaster Calendar. The following posts will show the eight cards we will be creating and the calendar!

Let's start with the calendar! We covered two coasters (ours were from Outback) with Ginger blossom paper using a glue stick. How cute is this!?

Now on to the cards:

First is the Whale....Get Whale Soon is a file folder card that measures 5.5x7.25. I watercolored the whale on watercolor paper using the watercolor crayons. I also added crystal effects to the water to make it shine.

Our darling cat is next...he has to grow on me a little. If you look closely you will see some "spritzing" of pink on the Perrrrfect tag. We used the color spritzer tool and a pretty in pink marker to add a little to the tag!

PAPER: Basic Gray, Regal Rose
INK: basic black

Club Cards

My awesome club ladies met with me on Saturday of last week and we stamped two fun cards. If you are not in a stampers club it is easy to join one. All I need are 4-6 ladies who want to increase their stamping supplies and learn some fun techniques. You spend a certain amount each month and once a month you get to be hostess. The hostess receives at least $15 in free merchandise and a free hostess set. As hostess you can host a workshop prior to club meetings and combine it to your club totals or bring in outside orders. Easy and you increase your stamping supplies slowly and learn how to use them as well!!!

The first card we did was a Pop Up Card: Below you will see the card itself, the card closed to fit in a standard envelope and a side view.

Stamp Set:
Sassy Suzie (She is part of a new Occasions Mini that will be available on March 1), Polka Dots and Petals
Paper: River Rock, Groovy Guava, Old Olive, Whisper White and Watercolor paper
Ink: Same as the paper
Accessories: blender pens for coloring, build a brads, paper piercer, ticket corner punch, hole punch for the brad

The second card we completed was a Big Buckle Card!!!

Stamps: Birthday Whimsy (a Sale-a-bration set) and Jumbo Whimsy wheel
Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White
Ink: Same as paper
Accessories: Word Window punch, corner rounder, scissors, chocolate chip marker, yoyo yellow marker, and dimensionals
