May Class Cards

Hello there! I held my May Stamping Class last Friday night and wanted to share the cards that we made. I tried to focus on spring and summer holidays and occasions. We made cards for wedding, graduation, father's day, mother's day, and sympathy.

Our Father's Day card...

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Delightful Dozen, Woodgrain
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Vellum CS (to make the mask)
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler marker
Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts framelits, Large Heart punch, Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Naturals Designer Buttons, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
Technique: Masking

This card was inspired by a card on page 75 of the brand new Annual Catalog. To make the woodgrain heart, I cut a heart out of vellum cardstock using the Hearts framelits. I then used a temporary adhesive to attach the vellum to my Crumb Cake cardstock. I placed my Woodgrain background stamp rubber side up on the table, inked it up with my Early Espresso pad, placed my cardstock (with the vellum attached) onto the stamp and lightly rubbed the back. After that, I lifted the cardstock off the stamp and peeled off the vellum. Voila- a woodgrain heart! How fun is that? I dressed the card up a bit with some paper piercing and a button.

Our Mother's Day card... 
Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Rapberry Ripple
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice die, Floral Fusion sizzlit, Little Leaves sizzlit, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, pearls, glue dots
Inspired by this card made by Jill Franchett
I really like the way that Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple look when paired together. This fun Floral Fusion sizzlit makes the cutest flowers! Just layer them up with a glue dot in between the layers, and they are done!
Our graduation card...
Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: Blue Ribbon
Paper: Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White, Brights DSP stack
Ink: Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Big Shot, Tasteful Trim die, Stripes EF, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Brights Buttons, Island Indigo baker's twine, SAMJ
I just got the Blue Ribbon stamp set and I love it! It makes cute graduation cards like this one or you could turn it into a fun masculine/gender neutral birthday card by switching the center of the ribbon to the birthday sentiment. I used the Color Coach to come up with this bright color combination. I don't think I would have come up with it on my own, but I like the way these colors look together!
Our wedding card...
Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Word Play (retiring)
Paper: Pool Party, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Black Staz On
Accessories: Big Shot, Manhattan Flower EF, Lots of Tags Sizzlit (retiring), Large Oval punch, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon (retiring), rhinestone
I love that this one is so sparkly! Weddings are the perfect occasion for a little bling and sparkle!
Our sympathy Card...
Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Just Believe (retiring), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Baja Breeze (retiring), Certainly Celery (retiring), Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink: Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum markers
Accessories: Big Shot, Ovals framelits, Lacy Brocade EF (retiring), Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Perfect Plum Taffeta ribbon, pearls
I love the color combination of green, blue, and purple. These subtle colors are just right for a sympathy card. I will really miss the Just Believe stamp set as well as Baja Breeze. :(
