New catalog class projects

My inspiration for this class were the three stamp sets we received in our bags at Convention. I am trying to be mindful about using what I already have, and I thought the perfect way to do so was to focus on those three sets. The class was two cards, one bag, and one 12x12 layout for $12.

I found this tutorial explaining how to make this cute bag. It's so easy!
Stamp set: Eastern Blooms
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, WW
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Scallop edge punch, Scallop circle, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon

I used three techniques on the above card: rock and roll on the cut-out flower, faux silk for the background and I dyed white grosgrain ribbon using the Not Quite Navy ink pad. Ms. Mary Polcin showed us how to do that at Convention!

For some reason, I had such a hard time coming up with a card using this set!
Stamp set: Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, WW
Ink: Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, Versamark
Accessories: Heat & stick powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Pink grosgrain ribbon, Scallop edge punch

I pretty much CASED the layout that was on the board at Convention. These are colors I probably wouldn't have combined on my own, but I just love how it looks!
Stamp set: Inspired by Nature, Big Deal alphabet
Paper: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Basic Black
Ink: Versamark, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Black gingham ribbon, white embossing powder
