Window Shopping in NewYork

Earlier in the week I sent out my newsletter and in it I shared a photo I took while in New York city.  If you did not receive my newsletter make sure to sign up here on the blog.  Here are a few more pictures of this incredible dress I saw.

Sorry about the glare.  Isn't it incredible?!  What makes it so amazing is that it is made entirely from paper.
Here are a few more views of the flowers.

Twist on the Tropical Party stamp set

You know there are some stampers that can look at a stamp set and see all kinds of things?  Well I am not usually one of those lucky ones.  When I looked at the Tropical Party set I did wonder if the palm frond could ne made into a wreath.  Well, guess what it can!

I am pretty happy the way it turned out.  I punched out a 1 3/4" circle and lightly traced around it and used that as my wreath form and just kept on stamping around the circle.  Pretty fun huh?  I am going to make a Hawaiiam style wreath soon and will show you how it turns out!
