Don'tcha ya just love that there are more single stamps in the new catalog and that they are now in the front of the catalog?! Every time I say single stamps I think of that Beyonce song and think we need to come up with new lyrics to fit...oh you should have put some ink on it! Not to worry I won't sing it to you. Anymay ( yes, I meant to type anymay and not anyway. This word is brought to you courtesy of Debbie.) I had to get the So Many Thanks stamp and unlike my usual purchases I actually had an idea on how I was going to use it. This is not exactly what I envisioned but it is close.
isn't it sweet? Here's what I used to make it.
Stamps: So Many Thanks and Homemade (both are single stamps on page 18)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso (will this become my new Chocolate Chip?), Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink (pad and marker) and Regal Rose
Punches: 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Extra-large (NEW!), 1 3/4" CIrcle.
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and Circles # 2
Embellies: Pretty in PInk Satin ribbon
After making the above card I thought wouldn't it be cute to make it look like a flower. Well let's just say it looked better in my head than it did in real life. So I made a double thanks for those times when you are really thankful but don't want to write a lot. Hold on you will see what I mean.
I used pretty much the same ingredients except I used Pretty in Pink for the front piece instead of Pink Pirouette.
I am working on a chart showing all the different circles and scallop circles we now have and how they all layer or don't. It does get confusing as there are a lot of choices with hand held punches and Big Shot dies. Check back and remind me if I forget to share it!
