CARD: Color & Contour

This is one of the sets that I saw in the catalog and thought, "This is nice, but I don't need another flower set"!  Well, turns out that I did "need" it!! haha!!  I love it, and the coordinating dies are really nice, too--lots of uses, and don't have to be paired only with the stamp set!


I got the idea for this card from a swap I participated in -- she used Polished Pink, and I changed it to Misty Moonlight!  I love the layout, and will use it again in the future!

Here are the products used:

CARD: Biggest Wish

You know I couldn't hold a class without using Biggest Wish!  It is one of my favorites!  It was paired with the oh-so-pretty Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper.  This paper makes any card look good!  :-)


The gold highlights in the designer paper are so pretty--and layering with Gold Foil really makes it pop!  To save cardstock, try this:  cut your smaller rectangle from the larger piece of gold foil!  You're covering it up anyway, and this way you only have to use one piece of foil!

CARD: Flowers of Friendship

Here's Stamp Club Card #4!  We used the Flowers of Friendship once again on this card -- love all the different looks you can get from one stamp set!


Take notice of the pretty banner--it's made up of the In Color DSP, along with the beautiful Shimmer Vellum in Polished Pink!  This vellum is GORGEOUS!!  We'll definitely use this again in August!
