This is my card for this weeks layout challenge. I really want to keep using my wonderful you set- i just love it!! I also used my new hobby blade and cutting mat to cut out the flower- it took me a little while to get used to it but I really like using it- i feel i can get much closer than i can with scissors
Stamp set: wonderful you
Ink: ruby red, cameo coral, whisper white, basic black
Paper: Cameo coral, ruby red, whisper white
Accessories: Black embossing powder, sponge
This is my card for the colour challenge this week. I don't have any soft sky so I had to substitute bashful blue. I love it- it's sooo much fun- love love love pun fun!
Stamp set: pun fun
Paper: bashful blue, whisper white, real red, Summer Picnic DS

Here is the last of my fathers day cards. I love how simple and nice and clean it turned out. To make the stripes I used the invite stamp from the eat cake set and just covered up the words.
Stamp set: all holidays, eat cake
Paper: Bashful blue, chocolate chip, very vanilla
Ink: bashful blue, chocolate chip
Accessories: 5/8" chocolate chip grossgrain ribbon
I ordered the thick chocolate ribbon specifically for this card. This was the first time that I used the best friends alphabet set too. All and all a good card for my dad

Paper: Chocolate chip, Print packs designer series paper in Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla

This card was demoed at the conference I went to and I knew I'd have to repeat it. We did this week at my tart and tangy class. It is actually really simple to do but sooo much fun!! The cup is just vellum and the ink is put on with a brayer. Then there is the scratch and sniff- which is just 1 part juice powder (non-sugar) and 1 part clear embossing powder. So much fun!!
Paper: clear vellum, yoyo yellow, whisper white
Ink: yoyo yellow
Stamp set: tart and tangy
Accessories: brayer, dazzling diamonds, scratch and sniff embossing
This is one of the cards I demoed in my tart and tangy class this week. I wanted to make a card with everyone that has a different shape than what people normally do. The flap card is perfect- it's super easy to do and gives a different effect. Plus it's a perfect card to put a gift card in.
Ink: Real red, old olive
Stamp set: Tart and tangy
Paper: Bashful blue, Old olive, Whisper white, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Scallop, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" punches, markers
I wanted to make another birthday card using tart and tangy and I like the idea of playing with the circle cutout. I do have to say this inspired me to get the square punches and also to get some Stampin Up yellow ribbon for the future!
Stamp sets: Tart and tangy, so many scallops
Ink: Yoyo yellow, basic black
Paper: Yoyo yellow, whisper white
Accessories: silver brads, ribbon 1 1/4" circle punch

I wanted to do another Father's day card in blues and greens. I really like how this turned out- first off I can't believe I've stamped this long without the markers!! And I love any chance I get to use the En Francais background stamp!

Here are the make and takes that I did at the stamping conference. I was in the orange group so all of the projects I made involved the orange from the Tart and Tangy set. We also got to use the Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper and the onboard clipboard. It was also my first time making a bag. It was a lot of fun! Fun and springy!
