Back to Stamping... finally!

Hmmm, I think I'm awake now... ZZZZzzzz

Well, okay, maybe not. But the doctor adjusted my medications so that with any luck I'll be among the up-and-functional within the next couple weeks. That's not much help to me now, though, when I have cards due in the mail TODAY! Nevertheless, I've muddled through and made two Hero Arts swap cards this afternoon.

Hero Arts stamps: Heart Winged Butterfly (wood mounted), Anytime Messages (clear)

Colors: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla

And: Recollections designer paper (retired SU!), Velvet ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Paper Piercing tools, Stampin' Dimensionals

I also goofed around some more with the Tri-Shutter card idea I tried out last month, and this time came up with something I like. I decided to decorate both sides of the card, and it really makes for a much sturdier piece. I could see using this template as a way to display photos.

Supplies are the same as above except that I pulled out my Always Stampin' Up! set, some other miscellaneous UMs I had in reach, the Scalloped Circle and other circle punches, and some Vintage Photo flavored Distress Stickles.
