Finally, some new cards to show off!

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??
