Today's first project was created by CrEW Stamper Janet Hathcoat.
Janet used the new Flower Shop Bundle to create with adorable card with fall colors.  
I wanted to show the card open so you could better see the stamped strip of flowers that are trimmed and added to the card front, then she's stamped and punched two more that are popped up for more dimension.

Our second project today is from Janet's sister and CrEW Stamper, Christal Schalk.  Christal created this beautiful paper pieced card using the new Venetian Romance DSP.
