Spring and Explosion Card

Ok, I hardly never post 2 times in the same day, but I had to share my 2 cards that I found and made tonight from Split Coast Stampers. The first one is called the Spring Card. Here are the directions

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/spring_card/ This was a very fun card. I love the way it just springs up at you when you pull it from the envelope. It also sits very nicely on the table. Would make a lovely card to display on your desk or shelf. The stamp I used was one of my stamps that my MIL gave me a while back. I think it was from Hobby Lobby or Michaels. This is the first time to use this stamp and it stamps out very pretty. Perfect card for this stamp.

The second card is called a Explosion Card. It was just as fun to make, but I really love how cute this one turned out. I found the idea on Split Coast, but the tutorial is located at Dawn's Stampin Studio at http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2008/07/explosion-card-video.html

She has some really wonderful video tutorials which I love. Its like having a teacher right here in my scrapbook room. I can start and stop the videos anytime. Love that!!!

I am thinking about showing the kiddos how to make these two cards. They seem very easy and I think if I get the paper cut and scored and all they have to do is stick it down, we could actually get them both made in the same class. I really think they would enjoy making them. Anyways, there you go. More fun!!! See ya soon!!!

p.s. notice I used my left over scraps from my Centerpiece book to make my explosion card. I love doing that!!! I could never get enough of this paper either. One of my favorite Basic Grey lines "Oh Baby Girl".
