Who Says You Can't Have an Island Indigo Sunflower?

I wanted to create a second Fall card for my Saturday Stampers class and have it be a little unexpected.  I love how this one turned out.  I'll be anxious to hear how others feel about an Island Indigo sunflower. 




 I'll continue to keep sharing more details about the cards for this class.  In the meantime, I thought you might like to go ahead and take a peek at all of them.  I'll share more about them in another post.

An Elegant Deer is Always Welcome

Today's card comes from a stamp set in the Christmas section of our Annual Catalog.  As soon as I saw him, I fell in love with this deer.  He is whimsical and elegant, all at the same time.  I've seen a lot of cards created that were similar to mine, because the deer just begs to live on an oval background piece, be embossed in gold (or silver) and live on the most gorgeous papers ever to come our way.   I kept my cards very simple, letting the deer and the DSP be the stars of the show.  I tried a little bow at the bottom of the oval, but liked it best without.  Simple elegance is always good:)








I still have two more cards to share with you that we'll be making at my Saturday Stampers class this week.  I finished them all and just love them.  Come back to see my super elegant Fall card and my spinner card ... for Christmas.  Like I keep saying, this is going to be one of my best classes.

Christmas Candles in Dapper Denim ... And ... Cherry Cobbler

Are you ready for another sneak peek at a card we'll make at my Saturday Stampers class this week?  I made this one in two colors.  Scroll down and enjoy the post and then I'll tell you which one we're making at class.
First, I'll share my version in Cherry Cobbler.  Notice the cute little charm?  It adds such a fun touch to the card. 

 Now, here's my version of the same design in Dapper Denim.
 Both cards have the same design on the inside.


So which one do you like the best?  I hope it's the Dapper Denim version because that's the one we'll be making at class.  Everyone will get to choose which charm they'd like to add to their card.   If you're interested in getting this stamp set for yourself, it's a special Hostess offer ... through the end of October.  I love it for this candles stamp, but the entire set is really nice.
On Saturday .....
- We'll be talking about card designs.
- We'll be working with heat embossing.
- We'll be enjoying some dry embossing, using our gorgeous TIEF folders.
- TIEF stands for Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
- We'll be using a lot of wonderful framelits and thinlits, to make our cards gorgeous.
- We'll be making 2 cards for Fall ... an embossed wreath card and a sunflower card.
- We'll be making 4 cards for Christmas -----
     -- a Season of Cheer card
     -- an elegant embossed reindeer card
     -- a Christmas candles card
     -- an adorable little reindeer card ... AND ... It's a spinner card!!!

OK, I think that sums it up.  It's a class you WON'T want to miss.
