These are the other two cards from the previous weekend’s class.

Stamp Pads: Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana
Stamps: Cupcake Party, Butterfly Basics
Other: Cupcake Builder punch, Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade, Dazzling Diamonds, shaving foam, re-inkers – Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloup

We used the emboss resist technique on this next card (which I CASED from US demo Jane Graham):

Card: Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamp Pads: Versamark, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: By the Tide, Gorgeous Grunge, Itty Bitty Banners
Other: clear embossing powder, Framelits – Bitty Banners, basic pearls
