A couple of Lotus Blossoms!

Yesterday was a good day.  I dropped off Samantha and her friends to go sledding, ran a few errands and played Catan with Katie and Jackie.  Katie, Samantha and her friends made us dinner and I made some dessert crepes.  Today I'll be cutting some fabric for our t-shirt quilts which we'll be working on tomorrow, paying bills (gross) and then we're out to dinner with some friends from John's work.  They plowed our street in the middle of the night, so I hope we have enough snow melt to have our class on Monday.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Today I have two great cards to share with you.  They both use the Lotus Blossom stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  The first one is from CrEW Stamper Laura Diamond.

I love how she used the flower as a water lily - beautiful!

All the sponging, white highlights and swirling water effect make this simple layout perfect.
 Our next card was a make and take that CrEW Stamper Janet Hathcoat provided at our last Demonstrator meeting.

I love the colors and layout on this card!

A little closer look at this flower made with Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I also loved the little scallop trim detail added to the tag.  

The left front side of the card was also scalloped and a strip of Typeset DSP was added to the inside for a nice touch.

Most tag punches punch out the entire tag, so you're limited to one size. But the Ornate Tag Topper Punch cuts out just the top of a tag so you can choose how long you want your tag to be. It also punches out the hole for a tassel or thread so you don't have to do it separately. Make quick tags, bag toppers, bookmarks, and more. Tag width: 2" (5.1 cm). Tag length: any length you want!

* Push to punch--no squeezing
* Large surface area offers precise cutting and leverage
* Slim and sleek--easy to store

Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of cardstock that has been punched over a coordinating cardstock for a reverse effect.

■ Sleek body style
■ Large surface area offers precise cutting and leverage
■ Locks to store
