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!

Sponged Serene Silhouettes

Today I'm sharing a very simple card using masking and sponging. It features the stamp sets Serene Silhouettes and the sentiment is from Sweet Essentials. This was one of the cards we made at our stamp club class in June.  I've posted the free PDF Class Tutorial HERE, if you'd like the supply list and instructions. The tutorial also includes two other cards.
I made several versions of the card using different color combinations. My favorite was the Pistachio Pudding/Marina Mist/Wisteria Wonder combination. The other two color combinations are Pink Pirouette/Strawberry Slush and Hello Honey/Cajun Craze/Baked Brown Sugar. All were stamped in Early Espresso. I also added some scoring above and below the sponged area to add some texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
