Tuesday "Everybunny" Card Class Preview!

Tomorrow evening is my Everybunny stamp class. I'm so excited about this stamp set because I immediately saw other possibilities besides the obvious Easter cards that it suggested. Most obvious to me was the chance to make a "baby" card. Here's the whole group of them together but I'll show you individual photos as well.

Group Photo of the Card class for Tuesday night.

This card was inspired by Lisa Foster and the U Stamp Big Shot class. I originally case'd her card but she called for the note cards that SU sells -- I wanted to make a bigger card for this one. I embossed the Blushing Bride layer, accented with the scallop border punch at the bottom of my So Saffron mat, and tied a cute little So Saffron taffeta ribbon bow. I colored my image with a variety of watercolor pencils, blender pens and ink pads, and watercolor wonder crayons.

This card was adapted from a sample made by Sandi MacIver. I changed it up only a little bit. Instead of the Lucky Limeade curly edge ribbon that she used, I shose to bring out some yellow -- my favorite color! I used the Daffodil Delight seam binding that customers will be able to buy starting April 1st. I also used the Berry Blossom paper but accented around the paper with the Boho Blossom punch flowers that looked like little daffodils to me. The frame was cut out with the oval die and then embossed with the Textured Impressions Designer Frames oval frame -- don't forget that this is one of the items you can get for free from Sale-a-bration (*which ends on Saturday!!).

This is a little 3x3 card. My challenge to myself for this class was to use every single stamp from this 8 piece set. I just love Poppy Parade and thought it would be extremely bright and cheery with the Lucky Limeade color. This card could be a gift card, little note card, or anything you wanted it to be! How fun!

This is another card adapted from a card by Lisa Foster and the UStamp Big Shot class I participated in. I decided to use the Soaring stamp set for my sentiment. Don't worry -- it's my photography skills, not my stamping, that's not straight!! Did you know that the Cupcake Builder Punch makes adorable clouds??!!

This is a card adapted from a sample by Vicki Burdick. I just love being a demonstrator. Do you know that I have access to thousands of samples every day submitted by other talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators??!! It's true! Stampin' Connection is a resource available only to Stampin' Up! demonstrators! I saw a card on the site and decided to make a similar one -- this is note-card size as well. The tiny flowers at the bottom are accented with pearls. The paper is from the Domestic Goddess paper pack. Fun patterns in that pack!!

Well, that's all for today, but now you see how much fun my class will be tomorrow night! It's a lot of coloring but we'll have such a relaxing time doing it! I've picked out some lovely music to accompany the class!!

Don't forget to take advantage of Sale-a-bration before the end of the week! It's too good to miss out on! If you've been thinking about becoming a demonstrator, this is also the time to think about that -- it's cheaper than usual and there is the option of a free paper pack or free MDS download monthly from now until the end of the year! I had heard that one of the downloads is Stampin' Express! That's huge!!

See ya soon!!
