Lots of Stamping

I've had several stamping events these past couple of meetings and I thought I better share some of what we made. 

This one uses the Two Step Bird Punch and the Inlaid Embossing technique.  I love how this turned out.  The colors are Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight.  Isn't it amazing how a class can have the same supplies, yet their cards ended up looking different!

One of my favorite cards is one I designed in a flash...literally about 15 minutes from start to finish.  I knew I wanted to use the beveled window panes in the new Occasions mini, and it just developed from there.  I used the largest of the window panes, the new Tulips embossing folder and the Beautiful Wings embosslit.  Cardstock colors are Not Quite Navy and Pear Pizzaz.  The seam binding provided some texture - have I mentioned how much I love our seam binding? - and a bit of Designer Series Paper (Springtime Vintage) gave a bit of color.

The sympathy set in the mini called Thanks for Caring is so graceful, I just love it!  This is a simple card using that set, with Concord Crush paper and ink, and a piece of the Designer Patterned paper from the In Colors package.  A piece of Black satin ribbon finishes it off.  This is a very understated card, but so elegant, I think.

This weekend I will be gone on a three day scrapbooking crop!  I am looking forward to it, since I have never done a crop before.  I know...sheltered life and all!  Seriously, I have been downloading and installing all of the recent My Digitial Studio releases.  I will be taking my laptop, scanner, external hard drives and boxes of pictures!  I do hope to get my last cruise album made, plus some digital goodie organization done. 

So while most of the gals will be scrapping with their papers and such, I will be tapping away in My Digital Studio!  I'll report in on Monday how successful I was!
