2010 Card a Day Challenge - Cards #36 - #55

Well, it's been quite a while since I made a card for my personal goal of "Card a Day Challenge". I'm quite ok with not making a card a day, I've used that title to inspire me to be more creative than what I was last year.

Anyway, I've had a very full craft weekend. Saturday was my card class, which ended up being a craft session with my friend about four hours longer than the card class.  Sunday morning was my SU! demo training, as noted in my previous post. After grabbing a bite to eat for lunch, I noticed that I was in a craft mojo so decided to run with. As such, I made the following 20, yes that's right, 20 cards. I was inspired by my SU! Up-line to use the SU 6"x6" DSP hostess level one gift.  I've used the Medallion stamp set on all of them as there were so many cards on SCS to inspire me.

Out of all the cards that I made, there are only two I really don't like, they just don't work.  It is two of the Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie ones. You will notice them (card set 05) as they are very obvious. Still working out the best way to fix them so I do like them.  Anyway, I'm really happy overall with how these cards turned out.  By the end of it, my craft room and myself were covered from head to toe in dazzling diamonds ROFLOL.

Card Set 01
Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy C/S

Card Set 02
Brocade Blue and Night of Navy C/S

Card Set 03
Basic Grey and Basic Black

Card Set 04
Apricot Appeal and Sage Shadow

Card Set 05
Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie

I've decided that I really really like Sage Shadow and I will be sorry to see it retire later on this year. With that happening, I have decided that I will stock up on the ink refill and cardstock.

SU! Demo Training Swap - April 2010

Each month my SU! Up-line holds a training session. In addition, there is usually a swap for the demonstrators to participate. Since joining SU! in November 2009 I have not participated in the swap, but this month I decided I wanted to play along. The ladies within my Up-line's group are all very talented I wanted to receive some of their inspirations.  Anyway, this is my contribution to the swap. I really wanted to do something using the new in-colors and Medallion stamp set.

Birthday Card - Roslyn

Tonight I'm going to Fiona Platzer's card class. We will also be celebrating our up-line, Roslyn Vest's birthday, which was late last week.  Below is the belated birthday card I have made for Roslyn. Becky Roberts of Inking Idaho inspired me to purchase the Simple Birthday Wish stamp. This is one of the stamps I used for my card class, see card class 01/2010 post. I really like this stamp set and I plan to use it heaps.  Hope you like the card.

Cheers FiLoMa

Card Class 01/2010

On Friday 26 March I held my first ever card class. I had two people attend the class and they made three cards, shown below.  My craft room generously seats four people, but I can comfortably seat six.  I'm really happy with my cards and the ladies had fun making them also.
