Good Morning America!
Well to me it is still morning -- but afternoon for some. Yes, I am giving you a "little" break from vintage today -- but not completely. I decided to go ahead and post my cards today from card class instead of waiting. But don't worry for all of those awesome followers who have sent me an e-mail saying "they loved vintage," one of my class cards is vintage!! My stamping group is always telling me they wish they could do vintage, so I decided to give them a little taste of vintage without going hog-wild (like I usually do).
So I threw in a new technique with the vintage (I don't know what it is called - LOL), let them experiment with Stampin' Up's new Distressing Kit, and told them to give it their best shot. I couldn't believe how well they did (especially Tricia because she usually doesn't like anything new thrown at her -- and both her cards turned out better than my sample). The beauty of this class, as I told them at the beginning, there would not be any 2 cards that looked the same (you will see why when you look at the cards). So this was really a lot of fun for me because I got to actually look at all different "takes" based on how they decided to CASE the samples. Let me tell you, these girls made me proud!!
You will also notice that 2 of these card designs (punch cards) are totally "out of my comfort zone." Thank goodness I had seen some done a while back that gave me the ideas (no I didn't save a copy of those cards -- but the idea was still in my head that I wanted to do a similar card(s) some day).
So here they are:
