Stamping, Stamping and more Stamping!

What a terrific couple of days stamping with my demo's and good friends.  This first card, I'm doing on my own... this is a set from  This is like Netflix for rubber stampers. You will have to check them out...

The next three cards we made at April Prachniak's stamp club.
We had a ton of fun!!!
The one below we used bleach. I've done the bleaching technique before.. but it's really great to go back and do things you typically don't do.

Pam Parto, had a card class last night where we got to make 8 cards.  WoW...  I mean, these are really terrific!!! 
(for some reason... it's just me, the one below is my favorite. I can't wait to get this set in my hands!!!)
You really can't see the sheet of vellum on top of the flowers, but it's really beautiful....

One Sheet Wonders

I decided to try and get my juices flowing again... now that I've been disappointed/depressed about the Stampin' Up! "Color Renovation".  I just got back into stamping in March of last year, after my dog passed away.  I purchased all of the pads, markers, paper and was in the process of purchasing the reinkers (all but two color groups so far), and now, here they go and do this! UGH!!!

So...  keeping my chin up, (with slight tears and a quivering lip... hahahahah!), I wanted to break out the old one sheet wonder. But I couldn't find my old stuff, and much to my surprise... this baby is going around again!  I wish one of my demo's (HINT... HINT...) would have a class on this.  Googling one sheet wonders brought up TONS of stuff.

I used, From Kimberly Morris' website.   She did an outstanding job.  I really need "thank you" cards so here they are.  I made 2 of the first one.  The colors I used are Almost Amethyst, Blush Blossom and Perfect Plum, and the set is Greenhouse Garden.
