Something for HIM !!

Hi Stampers:

Thought I would post a little something for the man in our life.  We often make lovely cards, but they are not always appropriate for that special man, or perhaps there's someones birthday coming up, and you need a more masculine card.  Well I have just the thing.  As I said I've been taking a class with Ilina Crouse, a birthday class where we will make a variety of birthday cards and 3 D items.  Today was a masculine class and below are a couple of items we made.  Now this is a good point.  Many times I may not have the same stamp set the class is using, so I have to improvise.  YES!!  It's true, I don't have everything, still wishing though.  In this class I did not have most of the stamps, so I used a retired set.  It actually worked well for me as one of these cards is for my Father In-laws upcoming birthday.  He loves the outdoors and being back in the woods, so this stamp set - all though retired is called - Backwoods and it was perfect.  Let me show you!  Tell me what you think.  The cards are very simplistic and only require some layering:

Here is a view on the left of the set.  One is the box that could easily hole 6 cards and envelopes and the right is a Happy Birthday card.
Now I will say my photography is a little or may need a lot of work.  Haven't got that part down yet.  I would give more details but I'm not even sure if we're allowed to post these on our blog yet while the class is still going.  But if you really like them I certainly can give detailed information at our next class, or you can go to Ilina's blog and check out her information.  Again I think if you type in Ilina Crouse on goggle,  her web site will come up.

Here are a couple more cards I CASED yesterday using one of the NEW Stamps sets from SALE-A-Bration, which of course you can earn " FREE " with every $ 60.00 order!!

 This drives me crazy, I can' seem to figure out how to get these photo's in a line. 

This stamp set is from the Punch Bunch.
  All the stamps coordinate with the punches.  But you don't have to have the punches, you could just cut them out by hand.  It is very simple and really cute!
Another one from the Punch Bunch Set

Feb 9th - It's been SO LONG!!

Hi Stampers,

I have decided I'm not even going to apologize, I know, I am terrible at keeping things updated and I apologize every time.  I'm just terrible at this part of things.  But I do have some FUN card ideas to show you.

Have you ever heard of the word CASE.  I imagine you have but perhaps not in the way I am going to use it.  In the stamping world the word case means:  copy and share everything - the photos below are a CASE from a fellow demonstrator who I follow daily.  I love her site, she has wonderful, simple, yet beautiful ideas.  SHE keeps her site updated DAILY, unlike some of us! ( ME  ) Her Name is :  Chat M. Wszelaki her web site is Me, My Stamps and I.  I think if you go on goggle and type in her name or web site you will find her.  When you do, bookmark that site, you will want to visit it daily.  If I new how to send you directly to her site I would, but I'm not THAT talented.

Hay Stampers, how do you like the Garden Nome!  He is from a Punch class I purchased and had a blast putting him together.  This class is available for anyone to purchase from Jackie Topa I believe is how you spell her name.  He's so cute and everything is made from ONE punch, or cut by hand.  The punch is from the new Occasions Mini and it's called Build a Blossom punch on page 12 of the mini.  That's all you need is that punch and paper.  To easy, but you'd better make this card sitting down, it's so much FUN you might fall over.

So here are a coupe of cards I CASED,  I needed to have on hand a couple of " Welcome New Baby" cards.  These were so easy and really fun to make.  Again go to Chat's site and check her out!

Baby boy & Girl " Welcome Cards"
This one was one of my own creations.  Isn't the NEW ribbon awesome.  Again in the new mini, pg 35 - PomPom Trim 

This just gives you a little closer idea of the butterfly
This whole set uses the technique called " Masking ", it is one of the technique that we are going to be learning over the next couple of months.

We will be learning a NEW technique every month in our card classes.
