A couple more projects from last weekend's meeting

As promised, here are a couple more projects we made at last week's Stampers in Stitches meeting. The first is a 3x3" note featuring a 3-D flower made with the scalloped circle punch. Very cool! The flower is a bit too 3-dimensional to be sent via regular mail, but it would make an absolutely lovely gift card decoration! This is especially true when paired up with a rhinestone brad and some leaves made with the paper crimper and the large oval punch. Very cool project!

The second card is really neat as well. This is a 6x3" card and it's all about heat embossing. Except for the "from the heart" sentiment, everything on the card is heat embossed, including the wheeled pattern on the wide grosgrain ribbon. Who would have thought to heat emboss on ribbon? Very smart!

Both of these were little tricks that Glenda picked up on the cruise. Sadly it does not look as thought I will earn this year's Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Hawaii, but I already have my heart set on earning next year's trip --a cruise to the southern Caribbean. Woo hoo! I can't wait! I will have to work my tush off next year to accomplish this goal, but it will be so worth it!
