All my stamps make me happy but this one just makes me all warm and fuzzy…
Wouldn’t this make a grrrrrreat graduation card?
Although those grads want to be all grown up…but a secret part of them wants to stay a kid;)
I had so much fun playing with this stamp set, I am really glad I got it!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
I am almost to Charlotte for my Stampin’ Up Convention !!!!
I feel like a kid on Christmas Day!!!
It’s time for another fun Friday Mashup Challenge! Holly is giving us a chance to replenish the Birthday card stash we used up last year! And…she has challenged us to use twine on our project/card for the Friday Mashup #142.
I used the new SU Perfect Pennants to create my card. I like to “tighten” up the borders on the pennants so I created my own Smoky Slate pennant between the Very Vanilla one and the Raspberry Ripple one. I did this by die cutting one the same size as the Raspberry Ripple one and lining up the horizontal side up against my Stampin’ Trimmer and trimming 1/16 an inch off each size until I was happy with the size. Doing it this way keeps the pointy ends of the pennant uniform when lined up because sometimes my cutting skills are lacking when I try to cut the banner points via scissors! Then I just line up my pointy ends and trim an equal amount of the pennant off the top.
