I have a container full of punched shapes. I seriously have no idea how I got so many or why? But I do, so I try to use them when I think of it, which is what I did with today's card.
I started off by stamping and coloring the bell from Bells and Boughs stamp set. Then I cut it out and said, "Now what?"! I had this lovely colored image but it is so small I needed to build up around it.
I went to my Stampin' Success magazine (a Stampin' Up! publication for demonstrators) and found a card layout that would work. Then I just added some shapes and embellishments. Finally I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped a sentiment.
All of this is layered on Very Vanilla textured cardstock. LOVE that stuff! Again... I forget to use it!
