Quick and Easy!

I love the scallop square punch with this number 3 stamp instead of the postage stamp punch everyone has been using with. The Everyday Enchantment paper is bordered with Basic Black and the bottom only of the tent style card is embossed with dots! Next time I had better move the strip down a little I think. Does it need something? Hmmm

a couple of my favorites

This card uses Stampin'Up!'s Flirtatious Designer Specialty Paper which comes with two sheets of laser cut doilies. Instead for this version I used the inside of the Paper Doily Sizzits Die in Pumpkin Pie and layered it with an polka dot embossed piece of Melon Mambo, a border punched Pretty in Pink strip and a patterned paper piece from the Flirtatious pack. I love it! Products seen below.     This took me a week of 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there. I had too much trouble with the rosettes and finally gave up on that one! I stamped the patterned paper with musical notes which is difficult to see in the photo. My apologies for the blurry photo. I added some Regal Rose dyed crochet trim and some Soft Suede ribbons and sponged the rest of the patterned paper. I used my Stampin'Up! Sizzix Big Shot to make the oval die and punched the leaves and flower next. Then I stamped the bird around and cut one out.  After that i attached all that and stamped the sentim

Amy Barnes article on Stampin'Up! the  green  side... Did you know that Stampin' Up! does a lot to be  green ? Without a lot of hype and look-a-me fanfare they have been doing good behind the scenes for years.     Want to know more?  I thought you would! Rubber  - Rather than dump excess rubber from making stamps into a landfill Stampin' Up! donates it local parks in Kanab to use in playgrounds. They also donate it to charities like Courage Reins, a nonprofit organization that provides horseback riding therapy for physically or mentally challenged children. These organizations take the ground rubber and sell it for use in playgrounds and horse stables. Wood Blocks  - The wood blocks for our stamps are created from renewable resources with sustainable practices. They work with a tree farm in which maple trees are grown specifically for the purpose of harvesting wood. Card Stock & Paper  - The paper used as packing material in shipping boxes is 100% recycled.
