sharin' some cards..

Hello, hello!!  Hope your week is going well.  Have you been taking the Online Card Class Watercolor for Card Makers class?  I have... it has been lots of fun.  I have made a few cards and hope to make several more.  The cards I have today have nothing to do with watercoloring.  One is for the current Reverse Confetti sketch challenge and the other is for several different challenges.
My first card is for the RC challenge and uses the RC set Class Act, as well as the matching dies.  I made this one for my little guy's teacher.  I used some BasicGrey Clippings papers as I think they work well for a teacher card.  I gave it to her yesterday along with her favorite Starbucks drink.  I hope she liked it!


The second card is for the following challengers:  ColourQ, Seize the Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Flowers.  This card uses the super sweet Clearly Whimsy Stamps sets In the Garden and In the Garden Additions, as well as the cute little picket fence and grass dies.  I die cut the fence from some patterned paper (I think My Mind's Eye, but I'm not sure) and then adhered it upside down to my cardstock.  After that I stamped my little flower scene I die cut the grass from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered that.  I added the sentiment on a little hand cut banner and finished things off with two little embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft, SU! Crumb Cake & Pink Pirouette; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti & Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up! & Memento; Patterned Paper:  BasicGrey; Dies:  Reverse Confetti & Whimsy Stamps; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye & Prima
