January Stamp-A-Stack

Saturday was my monthly Stamp-A-Stack.  I have a great time with my girls.  I absolutely love getting together with others and making a bunch of cards!  Check out this month's projects.
I had a lot of fun making the cards for the class, but I will admit they were all CASEd (some exactly).  I am still learning to trust my instincts so I still use ideas I see from some of my wonderful bloggers I follow.  All these ideas came from one lady, Ruth.  She is very talented.  Check out her blog.

This first card (Butterfly Friends) I found here.  I am in love with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit!  Not only does it punch them out but it Embosses on the too.  I used two different colors, Pretty In Pink and Very Vanilla.  After I used the Big Shot, I rubbed a sponge dauber in Pretty In Pink ink and sponged over them.  The embossing grabbed the ink to highlight it even more.  My customers also had fun with the clear block stamps.  I had precut all the cardstock so they used the clear blocks for stamp the saying.  Everyone got it straight!  It is a little hard to tell from the picture but the DS paper I used had glitter, what a nice touch that adds to the card!

My Second Card (Life Happens) came from here.  When I saw this card I just fell in love and had to make it myself.  I changed up the colors some from the original.  I LOVE the color blue so it probably helped to draw me to this card.  I want to make a 100 of them and send them to everyone I know; however, the flower is hand cut out so I will not be making that many ;)

The last card (Friends) came from here.  I found this card long ago and loved it so I tucked the idea way for a time when I could use it.  This was the first card I made when I got the Big Shot for Christmas.  It was also the very first time using my clear block stamps.  I was quick and careless and managed to get the saying crooked despite having a flawless method of getting it straight :D  I used the DS paper again to add glitter to the card (LOVE this paper!)
