Hi, it's Joy posting. Today is a bittersweet day for me. This will be my last post for Classy Cards 'n Such. Beverly, the owner, is retiring and God has some new adventures in store for her. I have so enjoyed serving as a Design Team member. She has been so very gracious (especially when I was running late on my projects!) and generous with the Design Team.
Here is my card for today.
I used some of my favorite paper (which I have hoarded) from Heartfelt Creations but let go of for this special occasion. The Stamp is from Sweet 'n Sassy's God Is Stamp Collection -- also my favorite. The centers of the blossoms have Art Institute Adhesive and Pumice Stone Distress Glitter. The birdie has Wink of Stella on his wings.
Be sure to check out the Classy Cards 'n Such online store. There are some FANTASTIC bargains on supplies, stamps, and dies from many great companies.
Thank for looking at my card. Blessings to you Beverly and all you have done to make our hobby fun and enjoyable.

It is Shirley with you today. I have made a card with my favorite flowers on it. I love sunflowers, I think they are the most beautiful flowers ever.
I started my card with a brown card base. I layered it with red card stock and added a layer of designer paper. I really think these colors compliment each other and they are perfect for a card with a country feel.
I used red card stock to cut the Fleur De Lis decorative square. I used a square die to cut out a window to fit the Heartfelt Creations Sunflower Bouquet behind. I stamped two of the images so I could fussy cut the sunflowers from one to place in the corner. I shaped the flowers using the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit. I colored the images with Copics. I adhered the three sunflowers on the corner of the first image and popped one of them up using a foam square. I used green card stock to cut the Marianne Anja Leaves 2 to place under the sunflowers. I used my trusty Memory Box Willoughby Butterfly Wings to cut the butterflies in the upper corner. This is the butterfly image that I use the most. I used Tear Drop Pearls to place on the butterfly and in the corners as the finishing touch to my card.
I hope you liked my card. Thank you for dropping in to see us today.
I added four new items to the shop today. Three of the four items have only one available, so shop now while they are available. You can see them all here.
This is the last card posting for my time on the Classy Cards 'n Such Design Team. Mindy here, and I thought a Thank You card would be appropriate for my final card.
I started by stamping the Coneflowers from Impression Obsession on a piece of watercolor paper and coloring with watercolor markers. When it was dry, I ran it through my embossing machine with the Daisy Flourish Embossing Folder from Crafts Too! I layered it on my card front, and then die cut the sentiment, Thanks by Elizabeth Crafts Designs along with a layer of thin craft foam to give the card some dimension.
I have really enjoyed my time with Beverly and the design team, working with the products she carried in the Classy Cards 'n Such Online Store. The store is closing on Monday, February 29th, so click on the link to see the wonderful sale prices available on the remaining product. Thank you for your comments and support during our many challenges.
Only four more days until Classy Cards closes, so take advantage of the wonderful sale going on!
Hello! I can't believe this is my last post for CCNS! It's been so fun! For my last card, I made another card for the last CCNS challenge of aqua and coral. I am in need of a sympathy card and those are the hardest! I kept it very simple. Again, I mixed some Color Bursts to make my aqua and coral paints (Ken Oliver's color bursts Pthalo Green with Ultramarine Blue and Alizarin Crimson with Orange).
I traced the outline of an oval die so that I could have an idea of where to paint my leaves. I then die cut With Sympathy by Elizabeth Craft Designs out of the same watercolor paper and aqua card stock that was used for the base layer. Using Art Institute glue, I glued the die cuts together, off-setting them just a bit for a shadow effect and centered them onto the wreath.
There's still time to join our final challenge! Details here.
Welcome friends, Mindy with you to share my sample card for our Weekly Challenge # 125 - Aqua and Coral, make a card or project using the colors aqua and coral. I started with a background patterned paper from the pad Time to Flourish by Graphic 45. The pad is broken down by months so that you can make your own calendar or celebrate an occasion by-the-month.
It just so happens that the paper for June, my birth month, is aqua with coral and pink roses on it. My favorite flower has always been the rose, so I featured one of the Framed Floral Stamps by Stacy Stamps, Rose to be the focal image of my card. I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor markers. I was able to shade the roses to give them depth and dimension using the watercolor markers and a water pen. I also die cut a party bow and shaded it with the coral color.
To complete my card, I added a tiny tag with the sentiment, Hello, stamped from the Floral Vintage Labels Two by JustRite Stamps and a few Poinsettia Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest. I hope you will join in with your submission to make this final card challenge one of the best!
I've just increased the discount on the close-out sale for the Classy Cards shop! Be sure to take advantage of it! Details here.
Good afternoon, Joy here today showing you a card made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such online store. This was made for the challenge this week to make a project using the colors of Aqua and Coral. Similar to this picture.
and here is my card.
For this I used the image and sentiment from the Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set called God Is. It is a beautiful set with 3 images and 5 encouraging sentiments. The polka dot paper is from the 6x6 paper pack by Kaisercraft called Storyteller. This panel was popped up using Large Joy Foam Pads.

Hi, Diane with you today.Before I share the details of my project I just wanted to say that this is my last creation
for Classy Cards 'n Such as a Design Team member and want to thank Beverly for having me on the team for the last few years! Also to say that I loved working with the girls on the team and I hope to see you all around 'blogland'!
For my last project I thought it would be fun to create a cute little pillow box using Lawn Fawn Pillow Box die.
This was so simple to make, I could sit and make dozens of these!
