Tropical Party Birthday!
Poppin' Pastels: an Oldie-but-Goodie!

More "Rolling With the Punches" Class Samples Sneak Peeks!

Happy Wednesday stampers! I'm actually kind of under the weather today. Yesterday morning I felt that familiar scratchy feeling in my throat that usually signals a cold is coming on, and I was right! By last night I had a raging sore throat, runny nose, and ears all clogged up. I talked to my hostess for tonight, Barb, and we decided it would be best to reschedule her party so I don't infect anyone! I've got a super-duper party planned for her, so we are hoping to get her rescheduled soon! Today I am feeling some different, not better, but different, than yesterday. The sore throat is gone, but my throat still feels all hollow and dry, and my head & ears are all stuffed up. I'm going to wait until at least tomorrow to decide if a trip to the dr. is in order. Lots of fluids and decongestants today and Nyquil tonight! Usually if I can sleep at night I can shake a cold off pretty quickly, let's hope it works out that way this time!

Now, I know you didn't check in here to read all about my sniffles, did you? You came by to see if I had any cute stamping ideas, didn't you? I don't want to disappoint, so here are a few sneak peeks from my upcoming "Rolling With the Punches" class on May 28 & 29!

This adorable guy I CASED with some modifications from "Stampin' Success" the monthly demonstrator magazine Stampin' Up! sends out to all demos. Jackie Topa was the featured stamper this month and she does FANTASTIC punch creations! I couldn't resist this adorable monkey face peeping out of the "hut" window! Does it remind you of  "Gilligan's Island"? Jackie used linen thread to "tie" the "wood" and the window frame together, but I decided since we are going to be making 10 different cards at this class in less than four hours we needed a little streamlining, so we are just going to use the Close to Cocoa marker to make the "nails" in the construction! lol! I also added the hinges on the side of this door, and the "let's celebrate" is from "Family Phrases"!

Here's the inside: (I went with the "celebrate you" so this card could be used for multiple occasions!)

Next up is this gorgeous Oval punch tulip card I found on one of the convention boards last year. I made a few additions to make it more my own (See if you can guess what I used with the Big Shot to make the leaves!)

And lastly for today, here's an adorable birdie anniversary card! Oval punches again, and the Scalloped Oval, and the beautiful "Razzleberry Lemonade" DSP!

That's all for today, stampers! I hope these samples will help convince my local stampers to RSVP to come to this class. If you aren't local, I am offering this class as a "Class to Go" kit for $25 for all the supplies cut, punched, and ready to go along with the class hand-out directions! Just email me and I will send you a Paypal invoice! All kits will ship by June 1st!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampin' Rox! day!
