Hey, y'all! Sorry it's later than usual; Mom wanted to go shopping this morning, and who can say no to that?? :D

SO. Here are two cards from my Quick Summer Holiday Card Class; the Father's Day card is all retired stamps, but you could use the layout if you don't have the stamp sets! (Yet another great reason to make sure - when the Retired List comes out in June - that you get what you want before you can't ever again!!!!)

So, on to the show!

Card Stock: Brocade Blue, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal

Inks: Basic Brown, Brocade Blue, asst. Stampin' Write Markers

Stamp Sets: Summer By the Sea, More Great Greetings

Accessories: Designer Label Punch

You really can't get much easier than this card. :) To do the background - which I LOVE to do, so simple and such a great trick!! - just lay your card stock flat on your scrap paper. Pick up the stamp pad, and hold upside-down, but flat. Drag lightly across the card stock. Seriously, LIGHTLY. Don't put any pressure on it, unless it needs to be re-inked! :)

Another easy one! :D Here we go!
Card Stocks: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana
Inks: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Summer Sun Craft, Summer Sun Stampin' Write Marker
Stamp Sets: Three Little Words, Fifth Avenue Floral, Defining Alpha, Boho Backgrounds, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note die, embossing buddy, heat tool, dimensionals, paper snips
So, there you go! Hope you are inspired to GO AND STAMP SOMETHING!! :D The last two cards from that class will be your tomorrow cards - MAY 1 already?!?!? Where's the year gone! :D BE BLESSED!!!
