Some New Cards

Hi everyone, When Stampin' Up came out with the new catalog on July 1 I was very excited and still am. This is the best one yet. Of course I keep saying that but it is true, they work very hard to give us all the very best products out there. And you get wonderful demonstrators showing you how to best use these products.

When the Holiday Mini Catalog came out Sept 1 I had to have one set in particular. The Day of Gratitude set. Wow, I love that medallion. You can do so much with it. It's the perfect size and it lines up with several other products. Like the lattice die cut. It's just beautiful. And the top note with a twist featured on the card here.

I have here a card I cased from Mary Fish, she is amazing, and so talented. Her card can be found here. I changed up a couple of things like the jumbo brad very vanilla in the center of the felt flower and just one button. I used a real thin strip of very vanilla card stock for the "thread"

If you like what you see here please leave me a comment so I know that you stopped by. Also, any suggestions would be great, please do them in a sensitive way.

What I have done here is used the rock and roll technique. You ink up the stamp in one color, usually the lighter color ink, then in a darker ink, roll the stamp and ink just around the edge to give it some definition.

Here is a closeup shot.

Thanks for stopping by at Paula's Place. Hope to see you again real soon.
