Lesson 41 Delicate Doilies and Cards for Father

Yes, I know it's a strange combination but I couldn't resist using the new Doilies Stamp Set and they just didn't seem to work for Fathers Day Cards so I had to come up with something that was not so girly.
These shirt cards have been around for quite some time but Dawn Griffith taught me how to make them with the contrasting sleeves. Thanks Dawn.
Dad will love this Photo Easel Card.
For those who love a technique we will be making Faux Tiles.

A slightly different card using white embossing powder.

For those who love construction this set is made with the Fancy Favor Box Die and was inspired by stampedsophisticates.

This cute box and candles was inspired by tinkerin-in-ink and the flower is a Dawn Olchefske creation.
Lesson dates are August 30, 31 and September 4, 6, 7.

Lesson 40 Sympathy Cards

This is the last lesson before the new Stampin' Up Ideas Book and Catalogue is launched. Most of you have received your copy and have long wish lists.
For this lesson I have used a number of non-retiring stamp sets to create cards suitable for most occasions including Get Well and Sympathy.

For those who love construction we will be making a hexagonal box using the Mini Milk Carton Die.

Dates for Lesson 40 are August 16, 17, 21, 23 and 24.
