Kismet class today and tomorrow. There’s still time to sign up!

I went to bed at 6:00am and when I got up at 7:15am I still LOVED the cards for this class!

That’s always the test….to see if I like the cards that I design in the twilight hours when I wake up.  Today the testing went well and I’ll show you some of them!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s day.  We had a house full!  We did miss Miss Tami though!  She didn’t have a good night’s rest on Saturday.  Seems the neighbors were throwing a party and being a bit disruptive.  At lease when I’m up all night, I’m generally not making much noise except for the occasional squeal of delight with each new card!

Ok, I’ll get right at it with showing you the cards.  Then you can contact me and get signed up for class!!

???????????????????????????????An anniversary card was requested for this month and here it is.  Do you know what song I was singing when putting this card together?  Let me see what you think, put in down in the comments!

???????????????????????????????Here’s the token “man” card.  I just LOVE this stamp set:  Traveler.   This one is easy, what song would you sing when making this card?

???????????????????????????????This is a fun technique using our acrylic blocks as stamps.  The base of the card is one of the new incolors, lost lagoon.  Doesn’t that sound like a nice place to go?

???????????????????????????????Here is another new incolor, blackberry bliss paired up with hello honey.  See that scroll on either side of the designer paper?  That’s using vanilla craft ink and one of the new photopolymer stamp sets.  After putting together a huge number of stamp sets, I’m starting to dig those photopolymer sets! Just purchase them and you’re ready to stamp.  Peel them off the plastic sheet and stick it to your acrylic block and you are good to go!

???????????????????????????????Here is the last one.  I have shown you my whole hand.  This one is also using lost lagoon, but in this picture it looks more blue.  I paired it up with night of navy and used one of our newest embossing folders and a small piece of designer paper on the bottom.

So, let’s hear what you think about the Kismet class cards.   Are they cute or is it that I just need more sleep?

I was going to show you a picture of the ribbon sampler I made up also, however, the battery is dead in my camera.  I put together 87 yards of the most beautiful new ribbons.  The sampler includes 2 yards of each of the following:  Venetian crochet trim, 1/8″ gold ribbon, 5.8″ satin ribbon in 4 colors, 1/8″ taffeta ribbon in 6 colors, 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon in the 5 new incolors, 1/4″ cotton ribbon in a whopping 12 colors, and 1/2″ seam binding ribbon in 7 colors.  It also includes 3 yards of each of the new thick baker’s twine in all 5 colors.

All 87 yards of ribbon for only $55!  I made up 5 sets which means I played with 435 yards of ribbon this weekend!  I must say Stampin’ Up! did a fine job with these new ribbons and the color selections.  The satin ribbon is luxurious and the 1/4″ cotton ribbon is so soft and wonderful for making bows.  You are going to fall in love with each part of this sampler!  Let me know if you want to be one of the lucky 5 to get the first batch of sampler!

Happy Stamping!

    Card #1 took me a minute until I looked at the whole image. Duh. It’s that famous ditty by Tony Orlando and Dawn, right? Card #2’s song could be “Midnight Train to Georgia” or “Crazy Train” depending on your state of mind. 🙂

    Love the cards, Cheryl! I’d say the all-nighter was worth it.

    “Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree” comes to mind, but on the train one, I got “On Top of Old Smoky” stuck in my head. Now I won’t be able to get it out!
