teacher cards- breaking out an unused set

Okay, I got this stamp set Apple blossoms on a preorder last July 2010.  I had the best intentions to make teacher cards etc... and I never used it!  As my pre-order came for the new catalog starting on July 1st, I figured I better break out the ink.

I think I lacked some inspiration and direction on what to do with it.  So I cased  a card on stampin connection from Michelle Reynolds.  I added the owl punch but loved her design!

Now that we are down with all the end of year activities and events and a clean stamp room- I hope to be posting more often with new cattie and my back log of scrapbooking I need to accomplish!

Love embossing!

Embossing has to be my favorite technique.  So I was psyched to see new embossing powders in new summer mini catalog from Stampin Up.

Love the new bright color embossing powders in the summer mini- melon mambo, tangerine tango and wild wasabi.  I cased the one on black from stampin connection- just to play around, I apologize I don't remember who.  It is so stunning and really pops.  The embossed white one, also uses embossing dot folder for the big shot.  That is the card I came up with for card party too.

Summer mini shares

Where has the time gone, too many school events and commitments.  I finally got back in my stamp room to come up with some cards for a card party I did last Friday.  Get ready for summer and swimming!

So here is the first share using Stampin Up's summer splash and markers to color in the images, great way to get multi-colored look.  I tried to make it universal for male or female.
