This card is me tonight. I finally took some much needed time for myself so I could stamp. I got to break out my new Stampin' Up! stamp sets . . . that were still sitting in their UPS box from two weeks ago just calling out my name . . . and finally put some ink on 'em!!!
I made this card using the brand new Fun & Fast Notes set. When the new catalog first came out, I didn't put it on my wish list because it was kind of expensive, but you get eight darling stamps, each with their own little words. It has Christmas, birthday, get well, congratulations, new baby, wedding, and two thank you stamps. I can see myself using all eight of the stamps which is nice. I hate to buy a whole set just for one or two stamps. I'm really glad I decided to get it.
The base of the care is made with Bazill paper and the designer paper is Cosmo Cricket's "Dutch Girl" line. I paper pieced my bird and flower with the paper and sponged Soft Sky ink around the circle. I used my Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle punch and put Cloud 9 Rain Dots on all the scallops and the corners of the card. I don't remember where I got the red ribbon, but I do like the wider 5/8" width.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope everybody is having a good week. Don't forget blog candy will be posted sometime tomorrow for reaching 5,000 hits, and another Friday Card Giveaway.
