June 1-2 Card Class

Sets from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog

Soft Spring Hostess Set was inspired by Amy Koenders layout. Color Scheme is Gray Granite, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz. 

Free As A Bird Stamp set and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, colored with Blends. Finished off with 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim. This card was designed by one of the Stampin' Up! Artists. It was a provided kit to those of us who attended the OnStage event in Vancouver, British Columbia in mid April.

Brian King designed this card and I just had to CASE the layout, but I changed up the color combination to Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink. The Rooted in Nature set for the sentiment and Good Morning Magnolia for the floral.

CASEd from Mary Fish. I just loved the simplicity of this card. Again using Good Morning Magnolia and the coordinating dies. Heat embossed the "Hello" in Black Powder. Color combo was Mango Melody, Basic Black and Whisper White.

Sorry to the designer, I didn't write down your name. This card uses the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards,  with a Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper insert. The Good Morning Magnolia image was cut out with it's matching dies and colored with the Blends pens. The ribbon combo was the 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon in Petal Pink and 3/8" Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Sarah Fleming did this amazing design. I thought it was so cool to have a "recessed" look for the Good Morning Magnolia image. Again colored with Blends. Used the Stitched Nested Layered Dies for the sentiment stamped in Balmy Blue.

This graduation card for my nephew was my own design using mostly retired product. Color scheme Smokey Slate, Basic Black and Whisper White with a touch of Silver Foil and Silver Glimmer paper. Hope he likes his card!

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love it if you would leave a comment about something you enjoyed in this post.

Vancouver BC On Stage Event -April 13, 2019

My downline, Anne, and I went to the one day OnStage event in Vancouver, BC. We had a blast!!! We learned so much. We received a copy of the 2019 Annual Catalog and won a Prize Patrol. We came back with a lovely tote bag, 3 stamp sets, the new catalog, some make and take samples for our upcoming classes, and wonderful memories of our time together. So special!

We made new friends with the ladies at our table. We reconnected with some old friends, too. 
The room full view of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the west coast and Canada. The event was held at the Canada Place Convention Center.

March Class Cards

Due to lack of creative design time, I cased these lovely cards from the wonderful people listed below!
