Paper Flower Class

Amazing what our punches can do. I had so much fun teaching this class today! On the Coral paper we shaded with Poppy parade and used the ornament punch to build the flower. The Melon Mambo paper we used the Fancy Flower punch. The designer paper was used to create our carnation we used the scallop circle punch our 2 sizes. Loved it.

EASY but cute

Going through my OLD and soon to be retired stamps I had to make a quick card for my hubby's Birthday tomorrow. I kept it super simple and stamped and cut everything. I had to stop myself from using an embossing folder to give the card some texture. Cardstock colors, daffodil delight, garden green, crumb cake, soft suede, marina mist and very vanilla, I used Chocolate Chip ink on everything. The stamp sets were Under the Stars, and Camp out from (2002) YIKES! That sounds old. Hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend.Brenda
