Lots of cards for Relay fundraiser

Ok, so I have been stamping, I just sometimes think it is a pain to take the pictures, download and then upload to blogger, so I have been collecting for a while now. I decided that now was a great time to show them all. I probably won't give all the recipes because it would take too long, but you are welcome to comment and ask me how to do any of them and I'd be glad to help.

This first card was actually a club card from a few months back during Sale-A-Bration. I was showing off the awesome rub-ons. It is on acetate and the wasabi/pomeganate square is in the inside of the card to be used for writing. The flower and rub-ons are on the front of the card. Colors: White, wild wasabi, purely pomegranate. These next 3 are scrapbook pages from a class I did last month. I just never got around to posting them here.

This one was a CASE directly from the SU Spring-Summer Collection pg 131. I didn't have the appropriate pictures to put on it, so I left it blank for the future. Colors: Old Olive, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, So Safron, Apricot Appeal.

This page is also CASEd from the catalog on pg 51. Colors: Chocolate chip, rose red, old olive, more mustard, bashful blue.
I got these colors as an inspiration from the catalog as well. . It came from pg 55. I loved these black and white photos of me and the boys and it seems that no matter how I use them they make it look so cute. It was a photo shoot in my mom's living room with a sheet behind us. You would've never known huh? Colors: Real red, wild wasabi, Kraft, and blue bayou designer paper.
Ok....now for the cards. I have been doing a fundraiser for Relay for Life. I am selling cards 15 for $25.00 and all proceeds are going to the American Cancer Society Relay which is this weekend. I have 3 or 4 people who have ordered cards so I have been trying to get them done...in all my spare time HA! There are a lot of birthday cards because one lady requested birthday cards. So here ya go... Notice that some (or most) of these sets are retired or will be retiring in August.

Colors: Night of Navy, White, certainly celery, bashful blue, barely banana.

I love the pick a petal stamp set. Luckily this one isn't retiring. Colors. Chocolate chip, bashful blue, white. I love the rhinestone brad in the middle to add a little bling.
Another birthday using Eat Cake stamp set, which is retiring. Colors: Certainly celery, tempting turquoise, chocolate chip, so safron, and white.
This was using Birthday whimsy from Sale-A-Bration. and some retired designer paper. Colors: So safron, certainly celery, white
Here is a baby card using Nursery necessities set and wheel. Colors: Certainly celery, barely banana, bashful blue, and whisper white.
I love this set Wild About You. Luckily it is not retiring. Makes for darling kid cards. Colors: Wild wasabi, only orange, blue bayou, and whisper white.

This was another club project showcasing the Faux shaving cream technique. Colors: Real red, tempting turquoise, whisper white, and more mustard.
Another birthday whimsy. Colors: Wild wasabi, real red, whisper white, tempting turquoise, and more mustard (ink only).
Another wild about you card. This was super easy, done in minutes. Colors: Green galore, brilliant blue, and white.
This was a club card showing the "Spotlight" technique. I actually may have showed this card on here before.
I had to come up with some masculine cards for men birthday, so I used Happy camper (retiring in Aug). Colors, Night of navy, bordering blue, kraft, chocolate chip, very vanilla, creamy carmel (ink)


This was one I got the idea from splitcoast stampers. I can't even remember what the technique was called maybe lift a card or peek-a-boo or something. I put crosshairs on the middle bear with all in a row (retiring). Happy Camper set and wheel was used. Colors: Mellow moss, chocolate chip, very vanilla.
This was my card exchange card for the month. Way simple and so fast, but I think its cute. I used the hostess set For a Friend (only available until August 10) and little pieces (retiring). I used Real red and whisper white with black ink and red ink.
This is a unique little card. It was a little time consuming, but turned out cute. Each of the little squares are cards. I saw this idea on another blog somewhere. Sorry I don't remember your name if you are the one that created it. I used Gable green, yoyo yello, only orange, green galore, and whisper white. The gift on the front is done with rock and roll technique, but I don't think you can tell in the picture. As you can see with the orange, the inside of each has a birthday cake and it says happy birthday.
This was CASEd from one of my stampin demonstrator magazines. I used glossy paper and stamped the pick-a-petal on it. Then I used the Canvas background stamp and inked it with stazon white ink and stamped over the flowers. It looks like you are looking at it through a screen. You may be able to see it on an enlarged version (click the image). Colors: Certainly celery, pretty in pink, whisper white. The Hodgepodge hardware used in the corner is a retiring item as well. Better act now if you love it!

OK, sorry for the lengthy blog. I hope you all enjoyed a look at my last few weeks! More to come, I promise.
Happy Stamping!
P.S. Don't forget to book your workshop or catalog workshop so you can earn all of those retiring items before it's too late! New catalog comes out August 11.
