Tuesday's Birthday Card Class

Welcome to my blog everyone. Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peak at my paper creations. I hope you like what you see and will visit often.

Here are the 4 different cards we will be making at my upcoming birthday card class. When everyone is finished with the class they will be taking home 8 cards total. They will have 2 cards of each of the 4 different designs.

I am always amazed. It seems like the one that is my least favorite, ends up being one that my family likes. We sure do have different tastes, probably a very good thing too.

For this first card you see I used night of navy, brocade blue, basic gray, and naturals white cardstock. The stamp sets I used were fifth avenue floral and well scripted. Tools I used were the big shot, sizzlits lots of tags, ticket corner punch, eyelet border punch, and the wide oval punch. The only accessory is brocade blue 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.

For the 2nd card below, I used cameo coral, chocolate chip, real red, whisper white, and pink flamingo dsp. The stamp sets I used were out of the box and voila. For tools I used the big shot, bigz die two tags, white gel pen, scallop border punch, scallop circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, and the 1/16" hole punch. For accessories I used a real red brad from the bold brights and 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

For the 3rd card I used taken with teal, pumpkin pie, whisper white, and sweet pea dsp. The stamp sets I used were fun & fast notes and sincere salutations. For tools I used the large oval punch and the scallop oval punch.

I wanted this to be a simple card. This is my least favorite, but my husband said he likes the color. Seeing this card in person looks much better than it does on here.

Lastly, which in reality, this was the very first card I had made. I wanted a card that could be used for anyone despite their gender. Stars work well in this case.

For cardstock I used apricot appeal, basic black, sage shadow, basic gray, and nouveau chic. For tools I used the color spritzer tool, large and small star punches, the modern label punch, and the word window punch. For accessories I used basic black brads and 1/4" sage shadow grosgrain ribbon. I do not know what it is, but I love the nouveau chic dsp. I will miss some of the colors they are phasing out. Yes, it will be nice having new colors too.

Thanks again for taking the time to look at my little neck of the woods. Please take the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear what you think.

Now go-n-stamp!!

Awesome assortment of cards Chris. I like the fact that you put in a non-gender card -- my customers always like this when I "remember" to add one. Great class ideas -- thanks for sharing.
