Really I do....

I do truly still love my SU stamps, although I've been so busy lately that the poor were a bit neglected. I'm going to make it a priority to get at least one post a week fully dedicated to where it all began for me, Stampin Up.
I've been meaning to hold a stamp a stack class, but just hadn't the time to get the samples done. Hooray! I'm finally going to hold that class after all and its a great incentive for me to spend some time designing with Stampin Up Only supplies.

Here are the first two designs I've come up with for the class. I hope to have a few more next week....

The first one is "She's all That" which I've stamped with Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla cardstock. The mats here are Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom. The designer paper is a Groovy Guava pattern from Ginger Blossom. I know "my girls" really like this silhouette chick - it sure does make for a quick card production. Since we're going to have a lot of cards to make that night, I need to make at least a few of them pretty straightforward!

The second card uses what is probably one of my most loved stamps from the new catalogue "Always." Admittedly, I did not make this card straightforward, but if I were just making this card once, I'd probably make it even more complex, for instance, I'd versamark, emboss and heat set the bird if I were doing it just for me, I did try to simplify for class purposes. I couldn't help adding some minor paper piercing across the bottom of the main panel and the very top of the card
The top is a piece of So Saffron designer series paper. I've stamped "Tres Chic" backgrounder on the bottom. You'll see I put the full gamut of SU's circle punches to use on the little medallion. If you haven't noticed, I love my punches!
For anyone local that is interested in attending a class, I'll post the dates, times and price for the class once I've finished up my samples. Until I know how much "stuff" I've got to buy, I won't have accurate pricing. The class will be held sometime mid May.
So, while we're on the topic, where did your "stamping adventure" first start? I'd love to know what your first stamping love was.....
