A Day Just for Stamping!

  What a great day I had! My company is gone. David was out of the house and I had the day off from work. I have had this box of new stuff just sitting on my craft table. I haven't been able to even get close to it - and it has been killing me! LOL!

   Sooo I was finally able to break out my new stuff and have fun! And boy did I have fun! I have so much that is new, at first I was feeling a little overwhelmed. I didn't know where to begin so I went to Stamping 411 for a sketch. I can always count on this site for a great sketch! 

Here is the sketch.

And my interpretation.
  A new stamp set, paper, ink, colors, embellishments, and punch. Ahhh it was bliss! 

  The scalloped border is partially covered by the ribbon. What a fun punch the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch turned out to be - and what a mouthful to say. lol! And I really, really love the new Antique Brads! But the biggest surprise to me was how much I love the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon! I have to be honest I wasn't too excited about the size but now that I have it and have used it - the size is what I love most! I can't wait to get more colors!

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
  • Notably Ornate stamp set
  • Blushing Bride, Perfect Plum, White cardstock

It is good to be back in the groove! Thanks for being patient!

I love the ribbon treatment you did under the brad! And you are so right, that is some wonderful ribbon to work with! The Vintage Brads are gorgeous too.
