One sheet wonder-color choices

Both of these use apricot appeal, brocade blue, and mellow moss, one with Vintage vogue stamp set and the other with For all you do. I like the vintage vogue stamps better for this project.

This is pink passion, brocade blue, and gable green with vintage vogue stamp set.

One Sheet Wonder Card Class

I am offering this class at my home Sat June 19th from 10am-4pm. Come and go as your schedule permits. Allow at least 2 hrs, but probably 3 to finish your cards. It took me longer than that, but I have the finished product for you to copy or alter to suit your needs. Make 10 cards with envelopes for only $12.50!! You will never get a class for this price at any of the craft stores. I must have your rsvp by June 10th to prep for the class and food. I have enough cardstock in these colors for 7 or 8. If I have more than that interested, I will need to come up with another color scheme. You absolutely must bring your own adhesive, and it's helpful to bring scissors, bone folder, and a paper cutter.

First, you will stamp this sheet of white cardstock, then run through the printer and cut on lines to make 10 cards. I will give you directions to make each card. You will have the option of many different greetings.

I want to thank Lee Ann Greff for this idea and her templates she so kindly put on SCS. Her blog is flowerbug's Inkspot in my list below.

Elements of Style card

This is another card I made while playing with this new set from the Summer mini catalog. I saw one similar in a gallery or blog somewhere, but not sure who made it. I did make several changes, so it's really mine. This is a very versatile set. Buy it in May and get FREE designer brads. I used Rich Razzlberry ink and card base. I mounted the stamped image on black and added a vanilla designer label frame using the razzleberry ribbon.

Spotlighting technique

I got the new Elements of Style stamp set from the Summer mini catalog and wanted to play with it, so I used it with spotlighting for our club technique. I made the blue one first, but stamped the image many times to get the rectangular piece to line up with the image straight up and down.
So I made the pink one for our club card even though I liked the blue better. I do like the "ruby-throated" hummingbird on the pink card though. I inked the hummingbird with gable green marker, and added the throat with pin passion, then outlined the bird with glorious green and cut it out.
