Having fun with new stamps!

 Just wanting to share a few cards that I had made in the last little while...
My daughter Stephanie helped me made this collage through Picasa program. If you haven't tried Picasa for editing program, you may want to now.  I am just learning it slowly now. Never too late! I am very proud of my next card as it is out of my comfort zone. Thanks to the uber talented Ashley Canon Newell's video tutorial (see here),  I actually dyed the ribbons (with gold glimmer mist) 
and tied it with a rubber band. SUPER fun and easy!
Here's another one using the Scroll Vine background. I love both vertical and horizontal ways.
Lastly, it's a simple card with some scraps that I have. All I did was embossing the sentiment in Zing powder and used Cuttlebug to highlight it.
Hope you have a great week ahead.I hope to share some wedding photos upon my return.
edited note: I'm BACK from Philly! Everything with our nephew's wedding went beautifully!

Beautiful cards, Virginia! I have a similar stamp called the Flower Plate and you've inspired me to get it out again and play! Love the way you used the vine in both directions! Such soft colors too! The pink and green one's my fave! LOVE those colors!
