Painted Harvest Soft Sunflower Card

This card idea came straight from the pages of the 3rd quarter 2018 issue of the SU Demonstrators "Stampin' Success" magazine. The Sunflower is so soft looking and elegant I just had to make one. The Stamp sets used were Painted Harvest (along with the Leaf Punch) and Special Celebrations. The inks used were Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, and So Saffron. The cardstock colors are Grapefruit Grove, Thick Whisper White, and some very old, retired Subtles Designer Series 12 x 12 paper stack - the polka dots are So Saffron. Grapefruit Grove 1/8" grosgrain ribbon finishes off the card.

Summer Watermelon Card

This card layout was CASEd from Beverly Morales, but I changed up the colors and used a different corner punch.  The cool part about this card is you make a whole watermelon, then cut it in half for the card front, so why not make 2 cards in the time it takes to make one?

The stamp set used was  Wood Words. The color scheme was Poppy Parade, Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstocks. The ribbon is the new Polka Dot Tulle. The melon was made using the Layering Oval Framelits and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, both using the Big Shot. The bite out of the melon is done with the top of the mini heart punch (retired.) The retired punch for the corners and seeds is the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. I thought it was so cool to get seeds that matched the corners.

Brusho Butterly Card

This one is an original by yours truly. I've named it "Brusho Butterfly." The stamp set is Beautiful Day and the sentiment comes from Colorful Seasons. The color scheme is the new In Color - Pineapple Punch paired with Bermuda Bay. I heat embossed the butterfly image with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I lightly squirted the paper and gently sprinkled the Brusho Watercolor Crystals and watched the magic happen! Once dry (it takes a while) then I gently used a facial tissue to wipe the embossing clean. Make sure to use some strong adhesive, like Tear and Tape or Tombow Extreme (not a SU product.) I finished the card off with Bermuda Bay Mini Striped 1/4" Ribbon. The sentiment tag was punched with a retired punch called Perfect Punch. This card just says "Summer" to me!

May 20 and 21 Class Cards

The first 6 cards are all from the new Share What You Love Suite in the new 2018 Annual Catalog. Aren't the colors gorgeous? The Designer Series Paper is exquisite with shimmery pearlized treament on several of the papers. These card designs were cased from others, but I neglected to write down who they were, so if it was you, please let me know.

This cute circular design card was stamped using a template with our new Stamparatus Precision Stamping Tool. It is amazing, once you get the hang of using it, to get precise and beautiful images each and every time!

Below is the wonderful video that inspired my creation above using the NEW Stamparatus.
