Here I Go Again Another First - EVER



I have entered this card in a challenge – can you believe it!  I think I have completely lost it.  But at the same time I have to admit I’m excited as well.  The challenge is over at PPA – CAS Bows Challenge 78.  Wish me luck!  I’ll keep you posted on how it all turns out, either way I am so happy to get all the experience this week.  I am waiting for my brain to go into major overload and just totally shut down, I can’t imagine what shape Carla’s www.carlas-scraps.com  must be in.  *smile*



This stamp is also a “must have”.  Each stamp has a corresponding punch.  NO CUTTING OUT you’ll have a sharp clean cut every time!  I thru in a few leaves from the two step bird punch and used the Swiss Dots folder on the large heart.

You know those little Stampin Up – stampin spots?  They are the niftiest little things!  I just love them.  I used one here on my cuttlebug folder (Polka Dots) - swiped the spot pad over the inside of the folder and was done -did not have a brayer to cleanup afterwards.

TIP:  I have found one of the easiest cleanup tools -
baby wipes.  In my stamp area I do not have access to running water easily…….use a baby wipe and throw it away.

Supplies needed:

  • Cardstock - M. Moss, A. Artichoke, Pretty in Pink and W. White
  • Stamps - Punch Potpourri
  • Ink -  Pretty in Pink and M. Moss
  • Punches – Scalloped Border Edge and Corner punches, Scalloped Heart to Heart die, Two Step Bird, Boho Blossoms and Full Heart punches.
  • Misc -  Marvy Heart Punch, Cuttlebug – Polka Dots and Swiss Dots folders, versa ink pad, clear ep, Pretty in Pink ribbon and silver half pearls from my stash.

Hope you enjoyed my card, until tomorrow be safe and as always thanks for stopping by and email me with any questions.
