~ All Ocassions Stamp a Stack

Twice a year I do a big Stamp a Stack and this is my spring one that I do, All Ocassions Stamp A Stack.  We do 5 of each of the following cards: Sympathy, Graduation, Wedding, Baby and Thank You.
So, because as usual, I am WAY behind on posting to my blog, in fact, it's almost time for my April card classes to start, and I haven't even blogged about my cards from March, which included some SAB stuff.  Where does TIME GO?  So, because I wanted to share these, I am going to post them in one post again. 

 This was my Sympathy one: I used Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla card stocks and inks, and Soft Suede ink for the sentiment.  I used the stamp set, You've Got This.
 This was our Graduation( or can be used for any accomplishment type celebration).  I used Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Basic Black card stocks and inks.  I used Gold Glimmer paper and Newsprint DSP along with the Star Framelits and Black Baker's Twine.  I used the stamp sets Bravo and Gorgeous Grunge.
 My favorite card of the SAS is the Wedding card.  I used Smokey Slate, Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stocks.  I snagged a bunch of Smokey Slate Chevron ribbon from the Clearance Rack.  I also used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch for the Blush flowers.  I stamped out the filigree type flowers and the For the New Two in Smokey Slate and cut with the Apothecary Framelits and used Dimensionals to pop it up with.  I punched out hearts with the Small Heart Punch from Silver Glimmer paper and finished off the card with Basic Pearls.
 This the baby card we made.  I used the adorable Easter Lamb from the Ocassions Mini.  I used Sahara Sand, Mint Macron and Whisper White card stocks. I ran the Mint Macron through the Gently Falling Embossing Folder. Punched the top of the tag with the Scalloped Tag punch and threaded some Hello Honey (also from the Clearance Rack) through the top.
 I stamped out the lamb in Momento Black and then the hid the Happy Easter under the banner at the bottom of his feet. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Made With Love and flagged the ends with the Triple Banner Punch.  I punched out a Real Red Large Heart and stapled it for a little pop of something.  (Sorry about the tear in this photo- I had a minor boo boo after I had it glued down). I added a Bow Clip to the lamb for some cuteness and colored the cheeks, tail and ears  with the Blushing Bride marker.

Our last card was the Thank You card.  Always good to have these on hand! I used Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Hello Honey card stocks.  I ran the Calypso Coral through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  Punched out a Hello Honey 2 1/2" Circle and stampe the Flowering Fields in Archival Black ink and hid it behind the Crumb Cake tag made from the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I stamped the Thank you from the Tin of Cards stamp set in Tip Top Taupe twice. (That's a tongue twister!) I added a few pearls to the center to fill in a blank spot.  I again went to the Clearance Rack and got some Ribbon, this is the Island Indigo Chevron) tied a knot at the top. 
Well, now it's time to be thinking of my Christmas in July Stamp a Stack! It's never too early to start thinking ahead!
Happy Sunday!
