I wasn't sure that I loved the card I made for the challenge this week. I've had a bit of a creative block. I know, it' happens. :) What bothers me most is that I thought I was going to LOVE this stamp set, and I'm finding myself a bit challenged with it! I will say that I found a cool new technique from a fellow stamper Beth during last weeks 411 challenge. Beth used a cool technique for making the holes in a large oval punch. I used them on my bunny card, but you should go check out her quick tutorial.. BTW Beth, you have lovely hands (don't listen to the hubby). I gave this card to my hostess this week and I have to say, it's been forever since I used ballet blue, but I think I'll be pulling it out some more for spring.
For my second card, I went CRAZY clean and simple. My base is craft, and my second layer is 4 x 2 1/4" craft. There's some punches and a couple of cut images, but that's it for layers, I kept it super simple. I did add quite a bit of glitter.
I hope you have time to play along with the Stamping 411 challenge this week.
