(All the cards were designed by the demonstrator & host, Rhonda)
The last card was the only one I didn't really like what I did in the class, I came home and made some minor tweaks, and it became this:
(And for those curious, one or more stamps from each of these sets were used to make these:
Cheers to You, Big Bold Birthday, Flight of the Butterfly, Inspired by Nature, Upsy Daisy, Say it with Scallops, Thank You Kindly, Heard from the Heart, Flower Fancy, & Punches Three)
It was a great fun- can't wait for the next one. But for now- to decide which ones I want to get... Decisions! Decisions!
Until next time!
I was feeling a little Asian inspired this weekend, the past couple of weeks I had picked up the "Asian Elements" set from Hero Arts, and the "Asian by Design" set from Inkadinkado.
First the Inkadinkado set:
The bamboo on this set is a little larger than most stamps, so the I had to make a card to accommodate it. I think it's 6"x4.25". The red square is a seal stamp my dad made me (& for those of you wondering its my name in Chinese)
Now with the left over green card stock from the card above, I made this 2"x 4.25" card, with the Asian Elements stamps. I also used some clear glaze to make the owl pop out & shine!
This cute card was for our niece who turned one a week ago, not the best picture I could have taken- the light was off (probably because it was about midnight when I was taking it!)
Supplies: Yours to Take (Penny Black), Soft Swirls (Stampin' Up!)
Next post, pictures from a Stampin Up! class...

Supplies: Flourish (EK Success)
I didn't stop there! I then found my way over to Lauren Meader's blog, and she discovered a great find at Target! Naturally, it made me want to go out and find for myself as well! The discovery? Disney Princess clear stamps!
I had just stamped and colored the princesses before I knew what I wanted to do with them before I made another matching set of cards in a box.
Supplies: Tiara (EK Success)
Supplies: Princesses (EK Success)
Whew! I had a busy weekend- but loads of fun stamping away! Let's hope for another productive crafting week- my goal this week is to get back into working on some scrapbook pages that have pushed to the back burner with my recent surge of cards!
Until next time- Happy Stamping!
