SpringtimeVintage Part II

Original design with pearls added to center of squares


Flowers punches instead of squares

Matte layers reversed with different punches and ribbon
Today is my final post of my Stamp Class cards that were altered just a bit using the precut materials.  The original card is the one pictured first.  Today I just added a pearl to each square.  The second card uses the same matte layers, but instead of punching squares I punched the large flowers and used a different embossing folder for the background.  The final card reverses the matte layers - the Very Vanilla is on the bottom and the Not Quite Navy on top.  Again, a few different punches and ribbon and I have a very different card that didn't take much extra time because the materials were already precut and on hand.

I hope you like my week of time savers.  I know this helps me get a lot of cards prepared and ready.  I sell my cards at a hair salon and catering business, as well as craft fairs, and to friends.  So I like to have a large variety of cards on  hand, but want to make sure that they are something I would be proud to have my name stamped on back.  So I find that this really helps me achieve that goal.  I always prep for more cards than I think I will need at my classes and use the leftover materials to either make the same card, or to change it up with different embellishments and sayings.  Thanks for stopping by this week to take a peek, and also for your comments.  Have a great weekend!

I really love this set of cards. Being a new SU demonstrator I appreciate the ideas that I can bring to a workshop.
