Had a lovely weekend. Got to visit with a friend from out of town on Saturday. Then yesterday our church had a post-church get-together. In the summer the various small groups in our church host special events to promote fellowship. Yesterday was the traditional summer soccer game. Lots of fun and so fun to watch the all ages playing together. It was particularly sweet to see the way the teens were encouraging and helping the younger ones.
We've had lots of hot weather these last couple weeks. It's been tough to do anything because it's stifling. The one thing that's been nice about it is that I've had an even greater appreciation for the workshop/ classroom space at the scrapbook store where I shop. Spent almost 12 hours there on Friday (12:30 pm - 11:15 pm). A friend came Tuesday and we got my stash organized. That made it much easier for me to pack/plan for Friday. I completed some half-finished layouts and made 5 cards. I'll post them later this week, along with pics of the reorg.
For now, here are the remaining cards I've made using SU punches. All these were made at various classes so all products are Stampin' Up.
This card is another version of one I posted a while ago, here. It features the butterfly punch I don't like it as much as the original. The butterflies are too white. I'll need to add some Dazzling Details or Iridescent Ice to give it more pop. I do love the embossing.
My Mom's Mother's Day card also featured this ;unch. I was going for vintage and I went a wee bit overboard with the sponging. Oops! Love the pink/green/brown colour combo though. It was also the first time I'd tried the Kissing Technique, which I quite like.
Two versions of the same card, featuring the snowflake punch. I found this punch really tough to use. We also random stamped snowflakes on the acetate/window sheet. I discovered those are tricky to use - they take long time to dry.What I did like about these two cards is the colour combo of Baja Breeze and Island Indigo. I think it will become a go to combo for winter cards.
I love this card so much that I wish I had the stock punch now to make it again. It's also more versatile than I realized. The hardest part of this card was typing the bells on to the twine! I won't be posting details this time as there are too many cards here where I can't find the notes regarding which sets have been used. If you have a specific card you have questions about, please feel free to let me know and I'll do my best to answer.
Thanks for looking ! I'll be back on Thursday with more to share.
