two more cards from my Spring Card Class

I thought I'd share the last two cards we made in my Spring Card Class last Sunday. They might just be my favourites from that class!




This one uses Fifth Avenue Floral (my favourite set right now). We stamped the lily on Glittery White cardstock (so pretty in person), watercoloured it with an Aquapainter and Pink Pirouette ink, then cut it out and popped it up on another Glittery White panel. On this one, I stamped and watercoloured another lily, but in the class, we just stamped the stem and sentiment on the bottom panel, and I liked it better. Of course I had to use my favourite punch (Scallop Border) to finish it off!

And my favourite (I think... there are a lot of good ones) from the Occasions Mini: Very Versatile. I love that you get four outside sentiments, four inside sentiments and an image in this set. A lot of the sentiment sets are words only, and somehow they just aren't as fun without an image! I inked the flower with So Saffron and Rose Red, and stamped four times, turning 90 degrees each time. I saw this card layout at Regionals last month (I wasn't lucky enough to swap for the card, so I'm not sure who created it). I cut the Top Note die and put the smaller panel (stamped randomly and repeatedly with the inside sentiment) on the inside of the card. Add a butterfly cut with my Big Shot, and you get my favourite card from the class!

It's my week to post on the My Scrap Shoppe blog, and I'm sharing some ideas for including stamping on your layouts... if you're interested, you can see my postsby clicking here...

These are SOOOO gorgeous! I especially love the Very Versatile one. Colors are my fave and the layout with the off-center Top Note is just adorable!
