CAS 49 - Cut it out!

I'm slowly getting back into my stampin' groove, and what better way than to play along with this week's Clean and Simple challenge on Splitcoast. It has been far too long since I've had the chance to play, so I was really excited to pull out a couple of my new stamp sets from Leadership and get to work!

This week's challenge is to cut out a paper element and attach it to your card in some way. For this card, I chose to cut out my Dusty Durango flowers, from the Vintage Vogue set in the Occasions Mini (which I received at Leadership). The sentiment is also from this set. I also used my new sneak peek set that we received at Leadership - Elements of Style. This will be featured in one of the upcoming catalogs and it is a part of Shelli's Signature Collection. That woman really knows how to put together some gorgeous stuff! She did an entire demonstration on vintage items and used both of these sets in her presentation. I have to admit that vintage isn't typically my thing, but I'm finding myself gravitating towards these new sets just because they are gorgeous! :)

It feels so good to get some stamping done and I was able to put a few projects together today that I'm looking forward to sharing with you this week. Have a great day!
