Online Card Class Stretching Your Stamps 2

I has been 9 days since I have posted to this blog.  Life has been busy and wonderful.  I have had time with my kids and grand kids and made some amazing memories.  Like going to the Family night at Lambeau Field.  I joined 67,337 other people to watch the 2014 Packers practice and some amazing fireworks to finish it off.  I also have had time with Jack and Eliza, having picnics, swimming, playing scrabble, shopping and sleepovers. Love those sweeties, and miss them when they are not here.  And, when not doing those things......I am taking the online card class.  I have made cards that were inspired by these classes and I am going to give you a fireworks show of all of them so far. (smerk)

 These cards were made with an embossed paper and then water colored.  Each one was cut into one inch squares and then used as BG.  I love the purple one. 

 This is similar to the first two.   You emboss, then color and finally die cut.  I like this one too. 

I really went crazy with this design.  The idea is to use part of your greeting in the image of your card.  I love the first one about family and the colors of the last one, are really much better in real life.  I used some texture paste and found that it can be colored, so the chevron was an experiment.

 Well, that is it for today!  We are going to a friend's house for a party, and it is a 1 1/2 hour drive.  So we will be staying in a hotel tonight and tomorrow, I am going to celebrate my birthday with my hubby.  That means he will have to buy me breakfast and dinner.  lol
I hope that I have inspired you to make some of these ( I should have thought of that before) cards. 
Sometimes you just need a kick in the butt. 
Have a great weekend with loved ones, Remember family is forever, and life is short. 
Love you all! <3
