Stamping heaven


It feels so good to be stamping again! I am in heaven. I actually finished this one last night. I started with a bashful blue base. The first layer is barely banana and then a layer of yummy Cutie Pie dp from Stampin'Up! The colors in this are so pretty together. My next layer is a piece of bashful layered with another piece of cutie pie that was scalloped with my create-a-cut. I used my sewing machine to stitch the top and the bottom with messy stitching. This is the first time I have used my new wide gross grain celery ribbon. I was afraid I would have a hard time tying it as it is usually a little stiff. It tied perfectly the first try! I love this stuff. Note to self get more wide gross grain, I think chocolate chip is calling my name! I used my photo corner punch with bashful cs and then stamped it with my dot stamp from In the Spotlight. I stamped little star flowers from my corners and borders square set from papertrey! I put stickles in the centers for sparkle. The focal point is done using bashful and whisper white cs in my mega and giga oval punches. I used the little star flower around the bashful piece in each scallop with stickles in the centers as well. The white layer is stamped with the corners and borders oval dots and then sponged with bashful ink. I stamped my flowers and then cut them out and after adding brads to the centers popped them with dimensionals. The one on the lower right side also has some stickles on the end dots. This card was so fun to make. I want to stamp again! Woo hoo! Have a great labor day and enjoy the possibilities!
