cards by me and jennifer

Here are two of the cards I made in Jennifer McGuire class I took at buffalo stamps & stuff store a couple of weeks ago.  I'll post a couple cards at a time over the next couple of weeks.
What do these two cards have in common?  have you guessed?  the vellum banners across the card cut outs.  Because of the flower card I went out and bought a gidget gadget called the Compact Stamp0 Press by Fiskars.  It is just a fun tool to use with clear stamps to much easier than a stamp positioner.  Other reason I got it is you can use clear and cling mount stamps on it with ease.  It has these sponge type feet so you just push/press down and you get a perfect impression and of course it is clear so you can see thru it for perfect positioning.  O.K. back to the cards....the flower stamp was first stamped then used the stamp press to over stamp with background stamp in a light ink....too cool. 
Now onto the second card which using an embossing folder that is inked then run through Big Kick (or any machine you have) with cardstock and you get this great colored background with raised impression.  Stamp the two hearts, cut out...lightly glue small heart to vellum banner and large heart to the inside of card.   Just a reminder all the images are from Hero Arts because Jennifer is one of their designers.
