My first experience with "Clings"

I have to admit that I am not a really experienced stamper and the new Bella Blvd "clings" stamps from Hampton Art kind of scared me at first. 
How the heck are things supposed to work??! 
After a little help from "Google" I quickly learned that they work just like acrylic stamps (you use a clear block and they "cling" to it!) but have that good ole rubber stamp quality. 
Very cool! 
On this card I used the heart stamp from the Bella Blvd "Love & Marriage" set. 
I stamped the heart on a couple different patterned papers and then cut out the hearts to make a fun border across the card.

On this next card, I stamped the wedding dress image from the "Love and Marriage" set onto a sheet of patterned paper and then cut it out. 
I used it as an embellishment for this card by adhering it with foam adhesive to a scalloped sticker and adhering the scalloped sticker to the card also with foam adhesive. 

I dressed up the card a little bit by adding a few pieces of bling to the stamped dress, to dot the "i", and along the scalloped border sticker. 

Hope you've had a great weekend!

Great job on the cards! I am just getting into stamping and I was given some rubber stamps. Then I won a set of clings and oh, my goodness. I love them.
