July Card Marathon

I decided to squeeze in one more 20 Card Marathon class before we say goodbye to a lot of fantastic paper packs and welcome the nine awesome new paper packs coming up in the new catalog.  Here are the cards we'll be making for the class.  I design these cards so that attendees can stamp their choice of several sentiments on the card--that way, I know they'll go home with cards that they can really use!

Sometimes clean and simple is the best!  These black and red cards were so easy to whip out--and I can switch from stars to hearts depending on whether I need a birthday, graduation or wedding card.  The banner and words come from the stamp set is B1438, Banner Wishes ($9.95).  The hearts and stars were from several different stamp sets.

These cards are copied from some designs that Pamela O'Connor shared a while back.  I love how simple and clean they are--and the embossed paper on the bottom really dresses them up.  I used the Ariana Paper Pack and the Damask Embossing Folder.  The stamp images come from the "For a Friend" stamp set, D1542, $17.95. 

This simple card features paper from the Skylark paper pack--a great card for using up little scraps of patterned paper!

This card features Sarita paper pack.   The flower is cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. 

Here's another SUPER simple card featuring the Jubilee paper pack.  The little hanging banners are cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and the Happy Birthday comes from Joyful Birthday, B1419 stamp set, $9.95.
All of these paper packs are slated to retired on July 31st, so make sure you order them before they are gone!  To order, visit my website at
