It's Sunday night...! :)

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! :)

The first one is again from 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!!!!!!!!!
