Simple joys

These new stamps are too much fun! Stampin'Up! released the new holiday mini to the demonstrators today! I am pretty sure I am in love with lots of the new upcoming items. All of the stamp sets from the holiday mini are die-cut so there is no trimming the stamps. Just put them together and play! The new designer paper is gawjus! I love the Apple Cider one! They are gonna make me love wasabi if it kills them! ;) My favorite stamp set is Autumn Harvest! Beautiful pumpkins, an acorn, leaf, and a Halloween face for the pumpkins! It is adorable!

K, on to the eye candy! This card base is sahara sand scalloped at the bottom with my create-a-cut and stamped with my polka dot bg stamp! Love that thing! I used a layer of blue bayou cs and put it through my swirl folder and then sponged around the edges with blue bayou and sponged the center slightly with white craft ink. I used my ribbon stamps from Inky Antics. I dotted them with my signo gel pen. I used my oval scallop punches to do the focal point. After cutting out the flowers, i punched the tiny flower with my 1/4" circle punch and glued it to the center. I used the small photo corner from my photo corner punch and pierced it with my paper piercer. The piece was finished with a piece of blue bayou stitched ribbon. Gonna have to stock up on that one before the new catalog next summer! ;)

I just ran across your site while googling "photo corner punch". Your work is gorgeous!! I saw Prima photo corner punch references in another site but cannot locate it. I was wondering if you would share where you found yours and who makes it. Also you mention your create-a-cut scallop cutter...who makes that and where did you find it? Also, the flower stamp on this card...is it a "Stampin' Up" stamp?
I am new to Scrapbooking and am trying to find all the great tools to use. I make lots of handmade greeting cards many years ago (15+..I'm telling my age!!!), but had to handmake all my own patterns back then (truly handmade!!!). I would appreciate any help you can give me...and I will keep stopping back here to see your beautiful work)
