Birthday balloons .....

.... Hello!  I do hope that you're all getting ready for the holiday season.  As we are all busy, I'm scheduling a number of posts for the holidays - while I'm off doing other stuff!  These cards were made at a recent Stampin' Up! class run by Karin. 

This card looks complicated, but really isn't.  It's a CASE of a card by Libby Fens.  We had lots of fun making the hexagon star, and it really is easier than it looks - you can see the tutorial on Libby's post.  I made this into a thank you card - always important to have in your stash.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - For You, Sassy Salutations
Inks: SU - Coastal Cabana
Accessories: SU Card - Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White; SU DP - Easter Elegance; SU EF - Polka Dots; SU Button and twine

The inside has a mat in Crushed Curry and a white panel which is blank for me to write a message.

The last card that we made at the class is a CASE of Karin's own design - a birthday card.  In these colours it is just right for a guy, but I can see it working in other colours too!

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by to see the cards I've made - our get togethers are always lots of fun, and what's more I can try out techniques that I've not seen before - like that fab hexagon star!  See you soon.
