Just Believe Folder with Cards & Envelopes

The pictures below are from a class I did earlier this month. This class was inspired by a posting on Stampin' Connection by Cathy Autrey. Cathy made a Gift box and 4 cards with envelopes. I liked the project and the colors. I used Cathy's idea and colors, however, I changed the stamp set, the card holder, and added a couple of techniques. I also changed the template. Here is my rendition of Cathy's Gift set:

Butterfly Pansy and My Digital Studio Card Backgrounds

Continuing yesterday's blog post, I have more samples from my Hostess Appreciation party. Two more cards I made using My Digital Studio to create the background paper, then layered on card base and added ribbon and stamping. The blue card uses Thought & Prayers for the stamping and 1/4" Night of Navy Grosgrain ribbon and 3/8" white taffeta ribbon.

My Digital Studio Summertime Splendor card Thoughts & Prayers Stampin' Up! July 2010

On the sympathy card below, I layered the digital image onto Chocolate Chip cardstock, then added the ribbon and layered it onto a Whisper White card base. I used the retired Close as a Memory to stamp "with heartfelt Sympathy".

Last is a simple card with a WOW factor: the pansy flower on the front. The original creator of the butterfly pansy is Tina Sieben and many other demonstrators have created their own version of the butterfly pansy flower. Mine uses the reinker technique. If you are one of my customers, please contact me and I will be glad to tell you how to create this flower. If you are not my customer, please contact your demonstrator, and she will show you how to do this technique. If you do not have a demonstrator, just choose me when placing a Stampin' Up! order.
