June Class Cards

June 24th, 2013

Happy Monday. I held my monthly stamp class on Friday night and this month we focused on Stampin’ Up!  I have two cards to share with you and they are both created with Gingham Garden dsp.  I have a SU order going in today and I’m trying to convince myself that I don’t need another pack of this paper.  I just adore it so much! I really have to say that this new SU catalog is the best one they’ve produced in several years.


Both of these samples were created while we were camping in Malibu.  Before I left I did some searching and printed out some inpsiration photos to work from.  The first card was inspired by one I found on Pinterest by Amy O’Neill.  I switched the papers around to work with the ribbon I had available.  This card is so simple and I love the happy look of it!  The stamp set is Label Love.


For the second card I wanted to use For the Birds and continue with the Gingham Garden papers.  I found a card on SCS created Cindy Hall that was the perfect inspiration.  I used some of the matching washi tape and colored a pearl with a Copic marker.  Cardstock is Night of Navy and the ribbon is Daffodil seam binding.

Isn’t it sweet?  I think the girls had fun making these on Friday. 🙂

I needed to get my Stampin’ Up! order figured out this weekend.  I still use mostly SU cardstock, ink and ribbon even with all the TE supplies I create with.  Teaching a class once a month means that I need to have plenty of cardstock and ribbon on hand so that when I come up with a class sample, I already have the supplies I need to to prep multiples.  With the new SU color resfresh and the fact that I had not reorganized my cardstock drawers in a few years, it was a little bit of a daunting task to take stock. I spent about two hours organizing my cardstock and I even went on ebay and ordered a brand new set of file folder labels for all the SU colors (new and old).  Feels so good to be back on the organization path again with all of that.  My stamp room has lots more organizing projects to be done, but that was a big one!  Now I will have a place to put all that pretty new paper when it arrives!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

    Cute, cute cards, Jami!

    I’m really glad to hear your thoughts on this designer paper. I’ve been going back & forth over whether or not to order it in July! haha
