Timeless Treasures

I was one of the happiest stampers when they brought Baja Breeze back as a color for Stampin Up. I used it on this card with DSP, Elegant Soiree. I love old and vintage and thought this paper was perfect with Very Vanilla and the stamp set, "Timeless Treasures". I ran the Baja Breeze through the Big Shot with the embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper. I finished it off with Victorian ribbon and a vintage brad.

So Cute and So Simple

I was asked to do a class for Easter and I don't have a lot of stamps for this holiday. So I was looking through what I had and found this cute little bunny in "The Nicest Things" set. I have had this idea for the background in my head for awhile. I took the lattice embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot with Whisper White Card Stock. Then I took Certain Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Pink Pirouette ink pads and sponges and dabbed ink so that it almost looks like Easter eggs in the background. The "Happy Easter" is from the Occasions Mini set, "Easter Blooms." I am hoppy with the way it turned out. Quick and simple but cute.

Lap of Luxury

So I am watching American Idol tonight and thinking that these young ladies are so confident to get up on that stage in front of millions and sing their hearts out. I don't recognize all the songs which makes it hard for me to always judge the song since I don't know the tune and how it should be. Does that make sense? I am getting ready to teach several card classes and some are with ladies I have known for awhile and I feel very comfortable with them. And then some of the classes are with ladies I have never met and there is always a degree of apprehension when I am teaching strangers. I worry that they might not like the choices I have picked to teach them but it is so hard to please everyone. I can only hope that I make the classes enjoyable for them. So after watching these ladies tonight on Idol, I'm thinking I should not be nervous being in front of six or seven people. It could have been millions! Ha! This is one of the cards that my ladies will be making Saturday morning. I am loving the In Color, Concord Crush. Hope you like it too.
