Saturdays card class

Was awesome, like usual. Thanks ladies for coming.
These are some of the cards we did, simple yet nice. They made 16 in total, 2 each of 8 designs.
Just for You is done with the Bella Bleu pattern paper, Oval All stamp set with matching punches and a few brads for a finishing touch.
The colors on this one were a little out of my comfort zone but thought it looked great. I used the texturze plate on the Whisper White cardstock and cut the butterflies out with the beautiful wings embosslit. The colors for the butterflies are Melon Mambo, Brilliant Blue and Rich Razzleberry.
I love this stamp set, Sense of Time but have a really hard time using it on cards. This card ended up being 4 1/4 square. On my first example, I crumpled the Creamy Caramel background cardstock and used a brad in the middle of the clock.
This second one I didn't crumple but clear embossed the face of the clock. On both I stamped the smaller circle thingie, cut it out and added with dimensionals. I think the girls preferred the crumpled background.
I just love the look of the scallop circle made into a card. Just fold your cardstock in half before running it through the bigshot with the seam just inside the circle so it doesn't cut. Used pocket silhouettes on this one and some retired pp. Simple and quick. We also added a little glitter to the flowers.
Hope you enjoyed looking at the cards and I'll share the rest another day.

Great cards! I love the scallop circle one too... I keep meaning to try that, so maybe I will after seeing it again here.
