Cards "All Abloom" with Color!

These are the cards that we made at this week's Stamping Class.  I used the new designer paper set called All Bloom.  I love the colors and diversity of the cards.  Yet they somehow look great together because of the colors. 

The pretty quilted card idea came from Vicki Burdeck.  She is so talented and has a great blog with her cards.  I changed the colors and the stamp set that she used to include the Flower Fun.  I like the stamps that have punches to coordinate with them.  They made stamping so easy!  The leaves are made using the bird punch- much easier than taking out the embosslets.

The next card has a cut-out on the front to showcase the little heart!  Cute, right?  I got this idea from Tracey Roy.  I added a simple flower image from Bloom with Hope set and gently watercolored it.  I also added some "dots" using markers and then embellished it with some rhinestones and the new sequins!

The Happy Birthday card is the simplest one of the four.  It's made using the set, Too Kind.  I got this idea from Vicki, also, but changed the colors.  Simple, and yet so beautiful! 

Lastly, this art-deco card is made using the new stamp set, Choose Happiness.  I copied the idea from  So Shelli's blog from Stampin Up.  I changed the colors and added some of my own embellishments. 

I love how all of the cards coordinate.  I think this was one of my favorite card classes.  What do you think?
