These are some of the projects from the going gray gracefully class. There were 5 cards and a bonus card for anyone with at least one gray hair.
Everyone in the class received a class kit with all of the supplies they needed to make their cards.

This first card uses the fresh cuts stamp set and the central park stamp set. The inks are baja breeze, riding hood red and kiwi kiss. We used the silver clip accessory and the silver small grommets from the occasions mini.

This is one of my favorites. The stamp set used is oval all and good news!!! This stamp set made it into the new catalog and idea book coming out in July. So did the manhattan floral embossing folder I used to emboss the flowers on the ultrasmooth white card stock. The ribbon is gray taffeta, the cardstock is basic gray and the flower and brad are from the pretties kit. The dsp is a walk in the park from the occasions mini. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

I love the above cards. I embossed chocolate chip card stock with the swiss dots texture plate and highlighted the dots with whisper white craft ink. The baja breeze card stock was die cut with the Big Shot Top Note. We then stenciled the kind thoughts stencil from SU! onto the top note. The bird is from the everthing stamp set and the brads are really cool. They are designer brads that are 1/2 price from SU! while supplies last called SOHO. The sentiments are rub ons from chit chat.

This last card is one of my favorites. The card stock base is baja breeze. The sentiment on white ultrasmooth is stamped in basic gray from versatile verses in the occasions mini catalog. The dsp is from a walk in the garden and is mounted on basic gray card stock. I dyed the flower from the pretties kit with baja breeze reinker. The buttons in the center of the designer white grommet are baja breeze and basic gray which are currently in the mini catalog. The gray corduroy buttons are going to return in the new idea book but the baja breeze which are gorgeous retire June 3oth.
