Summer Mini Cards from Class

Here are the cards we made at my Summer Mini Technique class today. I completely copied three of them from the April issue of Stampin' Success (a monthly periodical SU demonstrators get free!). I designed the last card, using the faux mother of pearl technique which I learned from the same magazine. It's such an easy technique! See my previous post for directions.

Card #1 uses the new triple layer punch and stay put knot.
sets-bold blossom
cs- cherry cobbler, very vanilla, early espresso, old olive, daffodil delight, peach parfait & crumb cake
ink- cherry cobbler, early espresso, old olive pads
access- early espresso grosgrain ribbon, crop-a-dile (for the stay-put knot), blossoms bouquet triple layer punch, itty bitty punch pack, 3/4" circle and wide oval punches, 2-way glue, rhinestones

Card #2 uses colored embossing powders and water coloring.
sets- fabulous florets, silhouette sentiments
cs- wild wasabi, whisper white, beyond the garden dp
ink- daffodil delight, wild wasabi, tangerine tango melon mambo & versamark pads
access- melon mambo and tangerine tango embossing powders, aquapainters, dimensionals, white organza ribbon, corner rounder, 1/2" circle punch

Card #3 - The Open Sea set is perfect for collage type stamping. I use the square punch to create the points on the sentiment banner.
sets- the open sea, thank you kindly
cs- not quite navy, whisper white, nautical expeditions dp
ink- not quite navy, crumb cake, more mustard, basic gray & versamark pads
access- silver ep (anchor), early espresso baker's twine, 1/16" handheld punch, 3/4" square punch, antique brads

Card#4 has a flower cut with the Fun Flowers die, a carryover from the Occasions Mini catalog (yes, you can still order it!)
sets- teeny tiny wishes, petal pizzaz, thank you kindly
cs- rose red, whisper white, beyond the garden dp
ink- rose red, pear pizzazz and so saffron pads
access- big shot & fun flowers die, frost white shimmer paint, rose red seam binding, brayer & sponges, dimensionals

Happy Stamping! Mary
