Whoo--hoo!! I did it again!

I have been stamping and creating cards and scrapbooks for a few years and have been participating in a couple of monthly contests. Well I am happy to report that I won the Impressionistic Stampers contest again!!

March Contest Winner:
Congratulations to Cindy Ehlers for her winning entry, created using the Big Shot Two Tags Bigz Die.

I was shocked and happy to win the contest, for my efforts I get $30 of Stampin' Up! merchandise!!  How cool is that?!!

April Technique Class - Suspension

Last night was our April Technique class and we made 2 cards using the Suspension Technique.  I just love our first card, the little monkey looks like it is just "hanging" there!

 For this card we used the Stampin' Up! stamp set Fox & Friends and Party this way, the Cardstock was Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Baha Breeze.

For our second card we used the Stampin' Up! Stamp set Look Who's Turning.  This card will work perfect for my little granddaughter Andi who will be turning 1 in June.  The cardstock that we used was Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Tempting Turquoise.  A button finished the card and just added the right amount of bling!
Our last card was the "fancy fold" card which is called a Double Fold.  It used the Stampin' Up! Sprinkled Expressions stamp set.  The cardstock is Baha Breeze and Cherry Cobbler, we also used Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding for this card.

That takes care of the March class, time to start thinking about the April Class which will be Faux Tile and I will be getting the flyer out just shortly.  If you live in the area and if this is something that you would be interested in, we would love to have join our group.  There is no obligation to place an order, the class is only $10 or FREE with a $15 order.

Until next time, as always, take care.
