Banners, Balls and Butterflies!

Hey my stamp friends! Wow did I ever have a blessed day yesterday! I went to Wylie to the antique house to take a cricut class.  Not only did I learn a great deal I got to spend the day with several of my fun stamp friends! So, thanks Nancy, Betty, Carol, and Rita, for the fun day and lots of laughter! It is the best therapy ever! My sweet Rusty had given me the machine for Christmas a couple of years back and I had not used it very much, so I was very excited to have a class that taught me how to use all of the features and now my house will never get cleaned! Those of you that know me know it really does not get cleaned now so no PROBLEM! LOL!  The red and white banner card was made with the pendant punch and it looks great in a variety of colors! You can use as  many banners as you like and spell out words on them.  I loved the ball card as it was so bright and yet easy and simple to make.  You punch a variety of circles or any shapes out of different colors. Then you run them all through the lattice embossing folder after yo have glued them down on the card top.  Then add any design or sentiment to the top with some bling and you have a great and fun card ready in a flash!  The next card has the vintage look that I  just love.  I used a plastic stamp block with no stamp on it and loaded it with color. Then stamped it on the card for the background color. Then I stamped the design on top of it. The embossing folder just gave it that added touch to finish off the card!
