Shower flower

Another new stamp set from Expressions 2 is called Shower Flower C1612.  We made this card in class last Tuesday, we took a 2" ps of White daisy cardstock and stamped the flowers on the strip.
We scalloped the top edge and backed it with purple glitter paper and bottomed it with green glitter paper.  Using "Finding the words" D1646 we stamped the sentiment.  The inks we used was Thistle, gypsy, pear first and second generation.

We used the April Stamp of the month for the sentiment and the arrow was from the Operation smile set from Expressions 1.

Here is a chick I made using the Cricut and the cuddle bug machine.  This is a circle card with the hinge at the top.  We made this card at above and beyond club.  
New from Expressions 2 mini catalog!!!   I want to share with you our new Blossom paper and a new card that is called Easel Gate fold card.  This card will impress anyone who is lucky enough to receive it.  The card opens up with a center fold, then you see the inside with the Happy Birthday greetings and then you lift that piece up and place it against the flower and it stands up to say "have a lovely day"
