Stampfest with Lynette on July 22, 2013

Here are the cards Lynette and I made on our July 22nd Stampfest:
Wedding card for our parents to give to Lynette's nephew who is getting married in September.

 Card I'll be giving to Jason and Emily.

We were on a roll with the oval nesta! I am not sure if I will stamp "thanks" or something else in the center oval. 
Used Lynette's All Dressed Up dies and One Of a Kind Designer Label stamp and punch. They worked perfectly together. Tami White from Stamp With Tami was our inspiration for this dress card.

How do you like this Pin-inspired card? It started with Lynette's admiring the beautiful colors of Patter Cross' afghan, who was inspired by a Vera Bradley Purse! You can see the inspiration at Triple the Scraps.

Floral card inspired by Pinterest, but the pin did not lead to a website! The large golden "flower" is punched out of the white, revealing the golden layer below.

Inspired by Tammy Tutterow's lovely card We used a boat image in place of the airplane.

Elizabeth's Mini Photo Book and Caitlyn's Baptism Card

I made this mini photo book for Elizabeth's graduation from high school. This is my second mini book of this kind, both of them made using Hetty's tutorial. This time, I added an extra page to fit more photos in the book.

Here is the graduation card
 Along with the graduation party, we celebrated Baby Caitlyn's Baptism. Here is the baptism card.

Dry Embossing & Sanding

Finally made a card with a layer of Core'dinations paper that was embossed and sanded with sandpaper.
I made this quick card for my friend, Joanie. We took a walk Friday and I commented on some pretty red bee balm blossoms. Later in the day, she brought me a bee balm plant with a vibrant red blossoms!

The "thank you" was stamped with my brand new Hero Arts set: Everyday Sayings CL34. Michaels had stamps on sale for 44% off, plus I had a coupon for 15% off everything, including sale items. I couldn't resist!

I wrote Joanie's name with my permanent Zig marker pen. The "thank you" was stamped with frayed burlap.
I made the flower with my scallop punches, crushing them and adding distress inks, antique linen and broken china, to the edges. An eyelet secured the petals together.
