Make a Card Monday - Time to Celebrate

I had the opportunity to attend the Creating Keepsakes convention in my hometown. It worked out really well because I only live about 10 minutes away so I could drive in each day, and I was able to work for one of the vendors, which gave me spending money. :)
I helped with set-up on Thursday and worked in the booth all day Friday. Saturday was wide open so I could shop and take a couple classes. 
The first class I took was CK's "Cards Full of Sunshine". The second class I took was "Time to Celebrate", a stamping technique class sponsored by Technique Tuesday.
Enlarging a stamp technique (using tape and a Post-It note)
We worked on several techniques and then were able to take the pieces home to assemble them into cards.
Left: masking with tape technique; Right: masking with a Post-It note technique
Left: Using a die to cut a mask; Right: Die cut negative space mask
I assembled all the pieces when I got home and ended up with five cute birthday cards.

Most of the supplies came from the class kit so I'm not sure who manufactures them.
cardstock: white (unknown), black (unknown), light blue (DCWV)
patterned paper: coral, yellow, and teal dot (unknown)
embellishments: yellow baker's twine (unknown), gems (unknown), clip (unknown)
color: inks (unknown); watercolor crayons (unknown)
tools: corner punch (Creative Memories), clip attacher (Rob and Bob Studio)
stamps: balloon and flower stamps (Technique Tuesday), Block Party (Technique Tuesday)
