Great Flowers and Flower Blocks
 For the 10th and 11th, I did clean and simple/ one layer cards with using glossy accents. For the next two days, I am sticking with the one layer technique but I wanted to play with my Stickles.

Great Flowers...
I did random flower stamps but picked just one to be my focal flower. I messy colored with my TH distress and them picking a couple different Stickle colors to add my bling. Of course I had to keep going, and going, and going, lol.
My second card is Flower Blocks...
I tried the clear block technique (which I found in the tutorial list on MFPS ning site. This is an awesome forum for techniques, tutorials, challenges, and of course stamps)
So for this card, I did this great flower block stamp and inked it up in black. Taking Black Diamond Stickles, I did a very fine line. An of course to stay with the one layer technique, I used different do washi tape.

So what do you think? Have you done any of these techniques before? 
Hope to see you tomorrow for our last hop day!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
