Hi all! I just wanted to share my cards that I am presenting to my local LSS, Scrap Happy Ohio, for a June card class. I love how the first cards opens and presents itself. You can't see it in the pics but the inside has the same stamp stamped in the lower right corner to decorate the inside a bit. The stamp I used on the oval is from Penny Black-Butterfly Kiss. the background stamp is from Impression Obsession-Flourishes.
I had fun doing this card! I used an Impression Obsession stamp on the background-Crackled. On the front piece I stamped a Penny Black stamp-Awakening on a piece of whit card stock with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder (white will work as well). Then I rubbed Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the image and inked the edges with Vintage Photo. After that I cut my paper in half vertically and into 3 equal cuts horizontally. I pop dotted those pieces with space in between the pieces. I topped it off with a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart-Monarch Butterfly Large Double Punch and a white bow...SIMPLE!!!
Now this card....I got the idea from Annette Green...thanks, Annette!! :o)
This card is actually made out of a paper lunch sack. It made a great card!!! The front image is, once again, Butterfly Kiss from Penny Black (love that stamp!!) The edger punch I used is from EK Success and it is called Wavy Dotted Edge. The outside edge was cut with a Tim Holtz on the edge die-Brackets.
All of the card stock I used is from Authentique.....I love that company!!!
I divided the bag with staples to make 2 pockets for these tags...BEFORE I put the card stock on to cover the staples. The tags, I just cut to the size I wanted and, as all other sentiments, stamped with Penny Black Gratitude stamp set. .
That inside punch is a Martha Stewart punch Daisy Fan I just flipped it and punched the other side in contrasting locations...I love that!! The large tag is tucked into the bottom of the sack. It makes a PERFECT size for a gift card!!
Here is my tag I had tucked away.
So, I hope you enjoyed looking at my cards!!
Until later....Happy Stampin'!!
