Stampin Up! Home Run Baseball Card

I made this thank you card for my son's baseball coaches--East Rowan Diamond Sports "Tigers"!! We have been with these coaches since T-ball and sadly this was our last year in coach pitch. Chuck, Thad, and Mark you are super coaches, dads and men--I appreciate the positive coaching, love and dedication given to our team through the years. And what a team you have "raised"--undefeated seasons 2 years in a row; 2) Championships and 2) All Star Championships!! You will be greatly missed!

I used the stamp set: Homerun and Extreme Elements, Punches: Star, circle; Embossing Folder: Squared lattice, Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie, Not Quite Navy.

Scrapbook Stampin Up! Class: Greenhouse Gala

I had the ladies stamping and punches LOTS of petals in this class!! Using the Build a Petal stamp set and matching petals punch they made beautiful flowers accented with pearls and swirly leaves. Designer Paper: Greenhouse Gala, Card stock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzaz, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight. Also used the Scallop Circle Big Shot die for the journal box.

Greenhouse Gala Scallop Circle and Square Stampin Up! Classes

Wow what a wonderful week of classes!! The ladies had such a fun time making items with Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper, which is sadly retiring this month. LOVE this paper, so beautiful and sad to see it go. In this class we used what else, but the BIG SHOT! Lately, I can't seem to make much without it. The scallop cards are cut from the Scallop Square and Scallop Circle dies, Embossing folders: Polka dots and Elegant Lines, Stamp set: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Punches: Word Window and Modern Label, Card stock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight; Ribbon: Daffodil Delight Satin and Early Espresso Grosgrain.
