Stretch Your Stamps 2... Geometic Shapes!

So this will be my final post for the Stretch Your Stamps 2 Online Card Class!
I truly have had a blast learning! I have also enjoyed the challenge of making at least one card from every lesson!  The backgrounds were my favorite! This geometric stamp set was the most challenging for me. 
This last card was actually inspired by my son, Hayden! It was ALL his idea! But apparently I used the wrong red!! haha!! I guess we will have to make another because I think it is a fun card!
So, I am now going to put my card making supplies away for a while! I REALLY need to finish up our Euro Disney Album.  I am sure as soon as I complete it, I will have to start working on Christmas Calendars! 
I should probably start sending out the cards I made as I am hording them... seriously!!

I am still determined to use this stamps set! I see a potential for mens cards!

Sadly the Stretch your Stamps 2 class is officially over! I had such a great time and plan to keep using the techniques I learned! I have bought more scrapping supplies this month, then I have bought all year! But I have had a blast and that is what is important, right??

This card was inspired by a Youtube video from Jennifer Mcquire! I thought it fit well with our Floral Builder class so I am adding it to the gallery!

When I saw this stamped set listed at, I immediately thought of my nieces Kaydra and Kourtney!!  I think this stamp set is adorable!
Kaydra had her very first day of school on Monday! She was so scared! She came home crying because she was scared all day!  Bless her little heart!! But she promised Hayden she would be brave on Tuesday and go back! She was brave! And apparently she was quite comfortable because she kissed a boy! When she got in trouble, she got scared again!

Stretch you Stamps 2... Day 7&8

So class days 7 and 8 were the days I struggled with the most!
I ended up having to make three orders before I finally got this stamp set.  I was totally excited for the Geometric Class days but I ended up struggling with them!  They are out of my comfort zone for sure!
But I was totally determined to purchase this stamp set, so I am going to be equally determined to find ways to use it! 

Stretch Your Stamps 2... Bonus Day

I paper splodged the balloons and then die cut them! Of course I had to add some Glimmer with my Wink of Stella Pen!
