I wanted to get a jump on this week; tomorrow is Scrapbooking classes, and Thursday I'm having another eye procedure done - so lots to fit in between now and then. :) And one of the first things I wanted to do was share the other two cards from the Advanced Techniques class with you! :)
TECHNIQUE JUNKIES, and the second is from my friend JOCIEL'S BLOG. Super fun!
This is called "glowing image". The angel stamp is from HOLY TRIPTYCH, a stamp set that was in last year's Holiday Mini and made it into the -08 Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog! I was so happy to see it - there are four stamps in the set, and they're all beautiful. :D
Anyway. Base card stock is Perfect Plum, as are the "dots" - from BASIC BACKGROUNDS - around the angel. The image is stamped on Almost Amethyst, and then layered onto Whisper White card stock. And yes, I DID use my favorite ticket corner punch again! :D
This card is ALL about the punches. :D Jociel's tutorial on the scallop edge punch made the fun DSP - Bella Rosa!!! - square frames easy. The base card stock is Very Vanilla, layered with Chocolate Chip - and the beautiful light pink is the new IN COLOR, Pink Pirouette. Well, would you look there. The ticket corner punch again. Who would have guessed??? :D
The sentiment is from WONDERFUL YOU, and stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, then punched out with the Word Window Punch. The flower is two 5 petal flower punches stacked, with the large punch from the Boho Blossoms flower punch of Chocolate Chip in the center. The sparkle is made by dipping a dimensional in light blue Cosmo glitter. The leaf is a small oval punched out of Kiwi Kiss - another new IN COLOR - that was folded in half, then run through our crimper. It was a FUN card to do! It's always fun to learn new uses for your punch, yes? :D
OK, I'm off. Time to go spend a little time with Kenn before the week hits. :D And tomorrow? Yeah. I'll be STAMPIN'. :D I hope YOU are taking the time to STAMP something, too!!!!!!!!!
