Stamp-a-Stack of Cards!

I want to share the cards that we are making this month. I've had to reschedule my classes so my last class this month will be next Tuesday. This month I tried to create fun summer cards and, of course, Father's Day. This first one is for your dear fathers or husbands. Since I have a class next Tuesday (after Father's Day) we will change the "Happy Father's Day" stamp to a tree from Lovely as a Tree. This is a great masculine card that I found the inspiration for here.

Next is a card that I made at the Gateway Glitter 'n Ink event on May 1st. It uses the new builder wheels from the Summer Mini Catalog. The cards was created by fellow demonstrator Sarah Klasing. Thanks, Sarah.

Here is another card from our May 1st event. I love the ease of using cards that I have made by fellow demonstrators. It saves me a lot of time. I think that's why the very talented group of ladies in Gateway Glitter 'n Ink have quarterly meetings/events to provide wonderful samples. This next card was design by Lynn Luetkemeyer (our leader). Thanks, Lynn, for a fun summer-time card -- everyone loves ice cream!

I love the new Island Oasis DSP in the Summer Mini. I'm definitely a "tropical" girl. I would be very happy to be on a white sandy beach with a pina colada in my hand lol!!!!! I was inspired here for this card. Ilina's blog is one that I follow. I just love her creations.

Lastly, is a beautiful and fun card we made with pansies. I think pansies are just the cutest little flowers. These pansies were made using the butterfly punch!!! If you look close you can see the two butterflies that create the flower. It was a fun technique and I love the finished card. I found this wonderful card on Gretchen Barron's blog. Gretchen is another demonstrator I love to follow -- she's very talented and lives in Decauter, IL.

Thanks for stopping in and seeing what I've been doing. Please leave me a comment. It's always nice to her from you all.

It's Your Last Chance!

It's that time of year when Stampin' Up! gets rid of the old to make room for the new. The retired stamp set and accessories lists are out. It always amazes me how quickly the accessories go when they hit the list. My advice to you -- if you want it, get it now before it's gone! Your best bet is to go on-line and place your order directly through my SU website. Click on the shop on-line link to go directly to my website.

The retiring stamp sets will be available from June 1 through June 30. The retiring accessories will be available as supplies last. Many items of the retiring colors are already not available so if you want something please check with me.

The new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog is due out on July 1st. I anticipate that I'll have an "advance" copy sometime next week. I've also pre-order cases for all my customers -- so the excitement is building!!!

Have a great weekend. Thanks for checking in.
