Another Class sample for the March 27th Hobby Lobby Cardmaking class

This card was made using a new stamp set I purchased from Stampin Up called Heaven blessed.  Love the sweet images that are so spring like.  Brings back memories of my Easters as a child.   Here it is----I can't sit in the house any longer today.  It is 11:15 and the garden is calling me. LOL   sooooo hopefully later today or for sure tomorrow the last card will go live here on the blog.    Happy Sunday everyone.

CLASS SAMPLES for THE March 27th Cardmaking class at Hobby Lobby

Hi everyone
I have been very busy the past week and a half taking care of a friend who underwent a hip replacement.   So between that and wanting to be outdoors in the beeeeutiful weather we have had lately,  I have not gotten very far on the card samples for the Mar 27th class.  BUT I do have 3 of them finished so decided to share what I have today rather than making you wait forever to see what you will be making in this class.  
The first card was inspired by one Nancy Dawson did using her technique for making tulips from the 5 petal flower punch from Stampin Up.  There are other brands of punches that have basically the same design and also a  couple of cutting dies that make that same shape flower.  
                                                                                                                                                                                 and this card was inspired by a card that    displayed on her blog.  Loved the idea so this is what I came up with-------
and the 3rd card I have finished is this one.    It uses a new set of dies from Spellbinders.  The line is called Cut, fold and Tuck and when you look at the sample you can see why.    This is an old technique we used to call Lace`, pronounced la-ca.    We used to use a metal template and cut teh medallion with an exacto knife.  What a pain!     The die makes it so much easier.
                                                                                                                                                                                Hopefully I will get the other 2 cards done this weekend (IF I can keep my fanny IN THE HOUSE!!!!!) LOL     Will get them posted as soon as I finish them.

5th sneak peek of cards for Quick and Easy 10 for 10 card class Apr 7th

Todays sample is the childs birthday although I guess it could be using for an adult too.  It is a little more work that any of the others because of the strings,  but so worth it in the end.
