You Lift Me Up!

I haven't done a lot of cardmaking this month, but finally got back at it tonight.  At the Expo at the end of July, I bought some stamps from a FABULOUS company called Fun Stampers Journey.  One of the sets I bought was used on this card!   It will be one of the cards done in my September card class.

Walk in the Garden

The other contest at the Expo was Walk in the Garden.  I had a lot of fun making this card, and REALLY thought I had a good chance of winning.  But - that's okay..... it WAS fun and challenging to participate.  I will give it a shot again next year.

The stamp set used is an old The Angel Company set that I always loved called - Old Friend.  I used my Scor-Bug and Scor-Pal to make the Grids for the various sections on this one.

Chill Out!!!!!

So......... there was an AWESOME Rubber Stamp Expo/Show last weekend in Bloomington, MN.  They had a card contest, and I submitted three cards.

This contest was called Chill Out.  So - I interpreted it as winter, and then relaxing - so made two cards.  The top card (winter) was picked for 2nd place.  I was THRILLED!  I used paper and stamps from The Angel Company (still miss 'em!!!!!!)

2nd place winner at Rubber Stamp expo!!!!!

This is the other interpretation I did.  I used one of my silly Art Impressions stamps, and paper pieced using paper from (yep - you guessed it..... The Angel Company)
