Finally, the last two cards to my upcoming birthday class are designed and ready for cutting! I LOVE the July Fourth stamp set in the mini catalog; it makes excellent birthday cards! I used the Color Coach to get a color combination using my favorite, Tempting Turquoise.
Here's the other card that finishes out the class. I love my new owl punch! Again, I consulted the Color Coach for some help. I don't have Early Espresso, but I think Chocolate Chip works as a substitute for now.
Here are all 5 cards together. I love them and I hope my attendees do as well. I still have spots available if you'd like to join in the fun on the 20th!
On my last order, I bought some of the Stampin' Up! watercolor paper and OH MY! I had purchased the aqua painters years ago and never really got results with them. I didn't realize how much of a difference GOOD watercolor paper would make! Now I LOVE my aqua painter; watercoloring using it and the markers is so fun! It adds a whole new look to this timeless stamp set! I also tried out a new card design on this one. It is a joy fold card and it was so easy, but looks so neat!
I am super excited because this time next month, I'll be attending the Stampin' Up! regional conference in Ft. Worth. I can't wait to go! I am loving all the wonderful perks of being a demonstrator. Don't you want to join in the fun??
