Springtime Hardwood Fence

Hi Stamping Friends!!

I had such a fabulous time yesterday with my stamp club friends. We just stamped and laughed and laughed and stamped. So much fun!! One of the cards we created was somewhat involved, so I designed a couple of (what I thought!) simpler cards to go with it. They were having such a difficult time doing the "simple" cards I told them they may need to take a remedial stamp class. :) Or maybe the fault lies with me, their instructor, as most of them have been stamping with me for quite a few years and are still having "stamping issues". :) 

Here is the "difficult" card that we created:

Stamps: Petite Petals, Flower Shoppe, Papillion Potpourri, Hardwood
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Gumball Green
Accessories: Word Bubble Framelits, Decorative Dots EF (SAB), Chevron Border Punch, Bird Punch, Butterfly Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Pansy Punch, Candy Dots Subtles, Fringe Scissors, Dimensionals

Even though there are lots of pieces and lots of punching and lots of gluing and lots of sponging on this card, my stampers loved it and at the end of it all, were very happy that we made it.

I have seen so many fun cards on the web using the Hardwood stamp as a fence. The first one I saw was a card by Patty Bennett who is an amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrator. She has a video on her site that shows how she created her card. I used her idea of the Chevron Punch on my card. Here is the link to her video:

I can't wait to share the rest of the projects we made yesterday. I kind of went a little crazy on the Easter bunny theme.
