June Stamp Club Cards (Part 1)

It's always sad for me when another year of Stamp Club comes to an end.  The ladies in my clubs are so amazing, and we have so much fun!  To wrap things up this month, we'll be making four cards instead of my usual three.
As soon as I saw the tutorial for the Center Step card on Splitcoast, I knew I had to try it!  Here's my version.  I used a lot of retiring products on this card since it's my last chance to use them.  The stamp set is Simply Said, which was one of the first stamp sets I bought after becoming a demonstrator.  I can't believe it's retiring!  Anyway, I used Blueberry Crisp designer series paper and pulled the colours from there (Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake). 
This next card uses the Poppin' Pastels technique (an oldie, but goodie!).  I haven't done this technique for a long time, but I will be doing it more often now!  It makes for such a soft look.  I stamped the images from Fabulous Florets in VersaMark on Shimmery White cardstock, so there is a shimmer to the finished card.  I used Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke pastels and dabbed them over the stamped images with sponge daubers.  To finish the card, I spritzed it with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to add more shine, then tied some Baja Breeze seam binding around it. 

I'll post the other two Stamp Club cards tomorrow!

Blessings to you,
