Okay so we posted the pictures of our June Stamping group having our first class in my new craft room. Although the room is amazing, I think our cards were even more amazing.
You may know how crazy we are about the circle scallop punch. Well we found a creative way to use the scallop punch as a flower. We folded it in half and then cut along the scallops to create the illusion of petals. We used a dimensional to pop it up and give it a 3-D element.
On this next card, we wanted to utilize one of the frames from the vanilla hodgepdge hardware set. Although this card took a while to come together. I was super happy with how it turned out and I enjoyed the layout. We used my new Three Little Words set and did some scoring on a Scor-Pal to create a tile image, but it is difficult to see in the picture.
The last card is one of my favorites. The layout came from the April or May Stampin' Success magazine. I love the tree from Thoughts and Prayers and have wanted to do a version of the card ever since I saw it featured in the magazine. I love the mix of yellows, golds, and black. I think it looks elegant and simple, which is something I love to do in cards. Just goes to show you that cards and scrapbooks don't need lots of "stuff" to make a visual impact.
