The third card...

This one is my favorite, because of the cupcake and mostly, because I used my Cuttlebug! (Have I told you how much I love my Cuttlebug?) I used markers to color the image, and added a little sparkle with my gel pens. Overall, the class went very well and my friends said they loved the cards they made. Three of my sisters and a niece were supposed to come and create with me tomorrow, but had to cancel. :( I hope we can reschedule soon. I have "kits" to make these three cards all ready for them.

The second card...

Here is the second card I made for the class. As many of you know, I love my Elzybell stamps, so I had to use at least one in the class. The sentiment on this one is from A Muse, which is another favorite of mine. I used Lemon Ice Stickles to dot the center of the flowers on the background paper, and a strip of mini rick-rack to add some flair!

My First Card Class

Yesterday I held my first card class. We had fun - but what pressure getting ready! I don't know how Stampin' Up demonstrators or anyone else who teaches a class can stand it! Maybe it gets easier as you hold more classes. At first, I felt pretty confident that I could come up with a few really cool ideas for cards. Then, I drew a blank - for two days. Finally, the night before the class, I was able to create three pretty cool cards to teach my friends. This is the first one they made.
