8 Great Cards Class - August 2013

Sadly, I had no takers for my 8 Great Cards Class in July. Mid-summer can be such a difficult time to coordinate schedules, with the distraction of water park weather, kids' activities, vacations, reunions, BBQs, picnics, and on and on! There's something to love about all the seasons, but the ability to step into your flip-flops and walk right out the door is so alluring ;-)

Those who joined me for my 8 Great Cards Class in August, celebrated with me by making some bright, cheery cards. We made two each of these four designs. This first one I already showed you HERE, but this version features a different greeting from the Delightful Dozen stamp set:

Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay are used here with Strawberry Slush.

This is a card design I borrowed from another demonstrator (thanks, Patsy!), featuring the Sketched Birthday stamp set. I got this stamp set FREE, I believe it was at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in January.

A clean and simple combo of Smoky Slate, and Coastal Cabana ink & DSP.

This card was inspired by another demonstrator's simple one layer card, pairing two coordinating stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge, and Hello Lovely. I received both stamp sets for FREE at the Stampin' Up! Convention in July. Woo hooooo!!

Pool Party in the back, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay in the front! Don't forget the Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry...a color combo you can find on the Color Coach!

Stepping out of combinations which include my favorite color (blue), this last card features the NEW Another Thank You stamp set. Read more about this fabulous photopolymer set HERE. The bottom line is that you really need it. If you have tried photopolymer sets in the past, and not been happy with the quality of image you get with them--let me assure you, that is NOT a concern with Stampin' Up!'s photopolymer. And even with the heat embossing, this card only took like two minutes to make. FANTASTIC!

Crisp Canteloupe on Baked Brown Sugar--sounds like a refreshing snack!
