Brandy's card class - What fun!!!

Last night was Brandy's card class.  What a great time.  Just spending time with friends and stamping is such a great night out for me.  If you would like to attend one of Brandy's card classes, you can check her schedule or contact her at

This is so pretty! Using the Create-a-cupcake punch for the clouds was ingenious!!!

Say so long to this set... Cheers To You has been discontinued. Get it while you can! 

I think this stamp is so pretty! It's new in the Stampin' Up! catalog and it's called Four Frames. 

And the green punch on here is being discontinued.  I really wish Stampin' Up! wouldn't discontinue their punches.  They still have the hardware available that utilizes this punch!  But Brandy did a great job with all of this... sooo pretty!!!

Raisinboat Stamps - WOOHOO!!!

I have joined this place I found online called Raisin Boat Stamp Rental. 
They are the Netflix of stamping!!!  The dollar amount you spend per month depends on how many sets you want at a time/per month.  Just like you know who.  But it's great because it's for stampers!!!!
They are clear acrylic stamps. Very good quality.  You might have to rub the brand new ones on your jeans, they might be a little sticky, but after that second, it was great. 
I received my three sets... and this one is called For The Birds.

Just as I was finishing this card, my blender pens were giving out.
I love this one with his head in the ground. How cute!??!?!

And I did this on the inside;

And an I'm Sorry card;

I want to do a few more cards with this set before I send it back.  And yes, I have a "Pick List" of items ready to come to me as soon as they receive this one back.   But I have two more stamp sets to play with as well...  be on the lookout... more to come!

Brandy's 5-18-2011 card class

First, Brandy, I'm sorry these were published so late.  I left the next day for the ocean and didn't have time to publish them. 

These are some terrific cards we made at Brandy's house.  If you like the cards and would like to attend one of her classes, you can contact Brandy at

I love Create A Cupcake!!!

This was fun! 

Who doesn't like beer?  Cheers to you! 

And aahhhh Sweet Summer; 

Brandy, Thanks for a wonderful evening, as always!!!

Linda's card class at the OC

I thought to have a card class while at the ocean.  These are the cards we made;

This one was using the Cricut cartridge Lacy Labels. I Love this cartridge!!!!  And yes, this is a folded card...

The following cards were not all my idea.  I cased these cards with a few changes.  This one I am using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch. 

This particular one, the email address was on the card itself;

This is the card on the above website; 
And this is my card I did in yellow. I wish I had that ribbon, but didn't. 

Hope you enjoyed them!
