Trying Something New

Shelli challenged us to step out of our comfort zone and try something new.  My comfort zone is ususally the cutesy type cards and scrapbooking.  So I am  attempting a new technique Split negative that  I learned from Michele Zindorf's blog and a new style more Elegant type.  If you stop by let me know how you like it.  I liked it so well I designed a card for my classes to duplicate.

Here is my first card
It is an Easel Type card.
This is the inside
This is the easel propped up with a tiny rose done with the large oval and build an owl punches also used the bird punch for the leaves.

here is the close up at the rose and you can see that I also used the new framed tulip embossing folder that goes throught the big shot.

Okay now look and see what I did from that point.  I actually liked this so here are some more

This was the class card they had their choice to do it this way or
this way..  Then I thought I would do my swap card for leadership like this too

How do you like it?
So I added our Rhinestones to two spots  just a little bling
This is the same design but I separated the black and white scallop from the Scallop #2 die and added lots of bling this time.

I hope you enjoyed  my attempt at new things
