It's July already! Do you love summertime like I do? Well up here in ND our season is mighty short so we appreciate every single day of warm weather. Of course we complain if it's too hot too! But overall we are happy not to be having cold, snowy days.
Anyway; here is a fun punch art card we made at my June Card Clubs. And of course my Cyber Card Club members made it too. See below to learn how you can be a Cyber Card member too.
This card was cased from Ruth Norton on Pinterest. My friend and downline member Jane wanted to make it. Then a few of my club gals saw it and really wanted to make it also. So it became June's Club card!
Check out my step by step video to see how easy it can be to create a fun punch art character like this one.
Base card: Pool Party - cut at 4 ¼” x 11”; score at 2 ¾” & 5 ½”, Whisper White: (2) 4” x 2 ½”; (1) 4” x 5 ¼” Emboss with decorative dots embossing folder
Accessories: Ribbon: ¼” cotton Pool Party, White gel pen, dimensionals, sponge, Mini glue dots

Many of you are already doing that; so why not get some free cards out of it?! Around your 5th or 6th month you'll get to be hostess and get all the free product from all the orders; around $35 on average.
Here are a few more of my Team swaps from our June meeting. I just love seeing what my gals come up with! They are so talented and everyone has a unique style too.
First is Marilyn's card:
She used the 'You've Got This' stamp set; a clear favorite of many of us. Marilyn is a fairly new stamper but she has taken to it so beautifully!
Here she shows us how pretty the Mint Macaron can be! This is the only ink she used on this card. Can you see the pretty striped background? That is done by sponging Mint ink onto vellum using our Dots & Stripes masks. Gorgeous!
Next is Annette's terrific swap card.
Annette challenged herself to use Washi Tape in a fun new way. She made a border around her greeting using the Bohemian Designer Washi Tape! Such a neat idea and a great way to draw the eye to your greeting too.
Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful cards with us girls. Cannot wait for next month's swap!

This soft & soothing Tip Top Taupe card features our new Neutrals designer paper stack and 'The Open Sea' stamp set. She sponged soft blue ink onto the bottom of her punched and stamped circle. Beautiful card Lisa!
Mary made this cute card using the new 'I Think You're Great' stamp set. Her colors here are Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay. There's a little bit of our Cherry On Top designer paper too.
Thanks for sharing your great swaps with the group gals.
I want to share some of the latest swaps from my Flowerbug's Team.
Brandy made this pretty card using the new hostess set Best Thoughts. She used Very Vanilla with the new Mint Macaron. The layering is so pretty drawing your eye right to that gorgeous flower and greeting.
Candy made this cute card using the new Friendly Wishes stamp set. The unique background image is from the new set 'You've Got This' and the scalloped flower is from the Crazy About You set. Her colors are Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss and Melon Mambo.
These gals live in other states from me but I know them well as they used to live in Minot. I am excited that I get to spend time with them at our upcoming Stampin' UP! convention in July. Should be a blast!

I held a similar class a few years ago and thought it was time to bring it back as it's just the best and most clever box of cards ever! I used our new, eye catching Bohemian designer paper.
It's a matchbox style box made from the thick white board in our designer paper packs. It will hold several A2 (or 4 1/4" X 5 1/2") cards and envelopes inside. Plus there's an separate area for tags on the side.
The reason for the separate tags is to give a few options for greetings depending on the need. The main cards are left without greetings on purpose. These little punched tags have dimensionals on the back so you (or the recipient) can peel off the backing and add the greeting! It's wonderful if I do say so myself and a fabulous gift, especially for a non-stamper.
This class costs $12 and is this Wednesday, June 24th at 4 or 6 pm but unfortunately it's full already. If you are local and would like to attend this class please let me know and I might schedule another.
***If you'd like the written tutorial please click hereand it will be emailed to you immediately upon payment. The tutorial includes the three templates to finish the box, measurements, supplies list and step by step photos in pdf format.
I also made another version of this unique box using the new Timeless Elegance designer paper. Holy cow; it this paper gorgeous! It is included in the tutorial above. Look:
It looks like a sepia or black and white photo doesn't it?! This designer paper is going to be a huge favorite for many of us; but especially if you like the vintage style. It's in Black, Vanilla and Sahara Sand colors; just soft and lovely.
Here's the front of the box:
I used a few of my brand new catalog products to finish it off. The new Stitched Satin ribbon in Black, the new Bold Butterfly Framelits and of course the pretty Timeless Elegance designer paper. All new favorites of mine!
