New and Revisited... Cards

This week's card class had three delightfully different techniques for the ladies to try out...
You saw the fun and cheerful layered sunflower card in my last post.

Here is the flashback project we revisited:

 This Criss-Cross Card was created in kraft colored paper, and layered with celebration papers, and borders were punched with Martha Stewart edge punches.  Add a belly band, and it is a fun way to send special greetings anytime of the year! 
 This shows the tag removed from the inside of the card, ready for your message.  This card can also be done in a horizontal mode, like this one from a couple of years ago:

Here's the link on this style Criss-Cross Card.  Hope you like it!

Our next beautiful creation was done with the new Martha Stewart STAMP AROUND THE PAGE stamping set.  I will be doing a video very soon showing some of the tips and techniques I have come up with to help make this is a very easy to use set, with great results.  The ladies made fabulous cards!

This was made on cream cardstock with copper cardstock on top, which had been punched with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set to create the layered background.  The sentiment was a layered combination of Studio G and another small stamp that I had.  I will be sharing
these tips soon... (See the note at the bottom of the post.)

AND... Last, but certainly not least, here is a sample of the brightly colored creations made for
Little E's First Birthday Celebration!
 There were lots of banners, posters, cupcake toppers, a big 1 tied with ribbons, and other goodies... check out BettyBee Designs FaceBook page in a day or two to see the whole array!

And the Birthday Princess came by the hospital to visit with her Papa... who,
unfortunately, couldn't go to her party :(
She brought her smiles to him.

That brings me to my NOTE for this week's UStream Class... due to Bob the Babe being in the hospital, I will not be holding class. See you next week...
Wishing you all the best.

and Happy Crafting ~
