April thank you card

Hi stampers, here are my April thank you cards, I put my bus. card on the back and add one of these trading card size cards to each one of my customer orders, when the order comes to my house. I first got this great idea from Dawn Griffith, she always does different thank you cards for each month. I thought the trading card size was a good idea because, I can add a bus. card to the back and that way, they always have my contact info. I used Crushed Curry card stock for the base of the card, it is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", the next layer is very vanilla card stock, it's 2 1/4" x 3 1/4", I used gable green card stock and the two step bird punch in the occasions mini catalog for the stem and the leafs, I used the scallop circle punch and melon mombo card stock for the flower(I wet each of four layers and crumpled it all up then added the brad to the middle and let dry while putting the rest of the card together), the pretty in pink epoxy brads also from the occasions mini catalog, and the thank you from the upsy daisy stamp set. I hope you like my April thank you cards, if you have any questions please let me know.

Card and mini magazine holder class

Hi stamper, I'm having a mini magazine holder and card class today. I just wanted to post a couple of cards we will be making today. On the first card I made using the Vintage Vogue set from the occasions mini catalog, Stampin' Up's! two tags die, some of the beautiful DSP from the winter mini, basic black striped grosgrain ribbon, 5/8" real red grosgrain ribbon, real red and basic black ink, two real red epoxy brads from the occasions mini, basic back and whisper white card stock, and the Well scripted set also from the occasions mini.
The second card, I used soft suede, and kraft card stock, chocolate chip 15/16" ribbon, medallion and the EnFrancais background stamps, the build a brad with green galore card stock and the little flower from the always stamp set. I used the bone folder on the corner of the kraft piece and tore off the first layer of the card stock and then I used a spunge and chocolate chip ink to darkin the edges, and I used the distressing tool from the cutter kit, to stress the edges. If you have any questions please let me know. Thank you for checking out my blog.

My first MDS pages

Here are a couple of pages I made with my MDS, I'm learning. The second one I made from scratch, for a scrapbook challenge on Stampin'Up!. The first one is of my upline's first downline meeting. It was a predesigned page, I just changed a few things. I really like playing with my MDS, and I have been attending the MDS webinars that Stampin' Up! has been having to give some great ideas, and to show you how to do things with your MDS. I like to use the MDS to design cards and pages, and then make them with the supplies I have too. My sister said it's cheating, but I don't think so at all, I love it.
