A Hello You Birthday

Today I'm sharing one of the cards from my March Hello You Vellum card class, and hopefully this will be the first of a bunch more posts. I have quite a few cards that I've made, taken pictures of, but haven't had time to share on my blog. I'm looking forward to getting some of them up and posted to share with you.
This card was inspired by several cards that I've seen using the Hello You framelit with the masking and sponging, but I decided to cut the "Happy" framelit out of black CS so that it would stand out. These little word framelits make such cute cards.

So glad that you stopped by!
CS: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP
INK: Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, Black Memento
SS: Crazy About You
Big Shot: Hello You framelit, Stars framelit, Large stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Stacked with Love washi tape, sponge, rhinestone jewels
*All supplies used are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted

Upcoming Watercolor Card Class

Great news...I've got a new card class scheduled for April 28, 2015 at Snedigar Recreation Center, 10-Noon and 7-9 PM, called Creative Watercolor Cards (pretty original, huh?) I scheduled this class back in the Fall and had to name the class before I'd made the cards, or even imagined the cards. But I did get creative and I have 3 watercolor cards to share with you. We'll be using different techniques to achieve the watercolor look using washi tape, stencils and the ink-swipe technique. I hope that you can join me! Registration information is below. (I may offer the class in May, but not sure yet.) 

WHERE: Snedigar Recreation Center, 4500 S. Basha Rd., Chandler

Revisiting So Very Grateful

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for a sweet stamping friend. She has been stamping with me since my very early years and has generously shared her supplies with me and has given me so many great tips...Happy Belated Birthday, Diane! (Your card is in the mail!)
I totally CASE'd this card from a beauiful creation by Lydia Evans. I changed out the stamp set using So Very Grateful, stamping in black and watercoloring the flowers and leaves with Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey and Strawberry Slush. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations.
Thank you for visiting today!

March Class Dates

Hello All!I hope you've all had a wonderful start to the New Year. We've been busy moving for the last several months, so life has been very full. As a result I haven't had much time to spend on updating my blog. I have been able to squeeze in a little card making when I can, but no time to post them here on my blog. I have plans to share them in the future, so stay tuned :-)

In the meantime, I have been able to offer a few classes this year, which I've enjoyed so much. This month I'm offering ONE class on TWO dates and at TWO locations (class picture above). My friend, Amy, is hosting my evening class at her house on March 11 and I will be holding my day classes at my house on March 24. If you'd like to join in the stamping fun, we'd love to have you join us.

This month's Hello You Vellum class features the new stamp set Crazy About You and the coordinating thinlit dies Hello You...and I threw in some vellum and a cute embossing folder for fun. It should be a fun class!
