Card Class with Basic Grey and Hero Arts

Last night I took a card making class with Jenn Shurkus, the creative chick, and this time she had us create six wicked cute cards using papers from Basic Grey and stamps from Hero Arts.  The papers we used are from Basic Grey's 6x6 Life of the Party Collection.  We only used a little bit of the paper in the pack, so I still have a ton of different papers left over that I can play with, which is definately a huge bonus!

The stamps we used are from the Hero Arts Spring 2011 collection.  You can view that collection by looking through their online catalogue.  The stamps we used featured cupcakes, cotton candy and ice cream just to name a few.  We also made use of Copic Markers, flock, stickles and lots of glitter (which I think I still might have on my face, lol) to make the cards eye catching.  Well, I think I've managed to talk about the cards enough, how about I actually show them to you?

Hmmm, didn't realize I made that sentiment so crooked... oh well!

I miss you cupcake!

With this card, Jenn  taught us how to use extra layers of foam tape to really give our cards depth.

This is what happens when you are stingy (or lazy) with your glue pen when you are using flock.  My bad!  It still looks cute though :-)

Must get a craft stapler!!! Because big staples don't look right...

More CUPCAKES!  And my favorite card of the much.  So simple, yet so striking.
