Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Video Sneak Peek

Happy Fourth of July, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good day ahead of you.  We’re going to our friend’s today – I thought it was tomorrow – but…I was wrong.

Wrong happens! 😉

So – I’ll be making some deviled eggs later and maybe a chocolate cake.

I’m planning to be home in time to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page. I’ve got a quick and easy fun-fold that would be great for a guy for graduation…retirement…new job….whatever!  Take a sneaky peek!

This is one of those wow cards – that only YOU will know was stupid-easy! 🙂

AND – since it IS so easy – and we’ll get it done quick-like a bunny…we’ll probably have a minute or 30 to dive into…

Hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm.  Right here.

Cat:  Nope.  That particular food is NOT what I want at this particular moment on this particular day.  Check with me later.  For now – I need something to eat and that ain’t it.  FIX IT, HUMAN, FIX IT NOW!

Dog:  Uhm…so…you’re NOT going to eat that?

Cat:  Nope.  Maybe later but for sure not now.

Dog:  Uhm…would you mind if I…you know….

Cat:  Nope.  You can’t have it either.  It’s mine.  And will be EXACTLY WHAT I WANT and the ONLY thing I will eat 10 minutes from now.

Dog:  But…not now?

Cat:  Nope.  It does look pretty yummy though, doesn’t it?

Dog:  It really really does.  I want it real bad.

Cat:  I know.  You wear your stomach on your paw.

Dog: And…I can’t have it?

Cat:  Nope.

I Oughta Be in Maui Stamps-N-Lingers Double Peppermint Ordering Special!

So – I think you’re picking up on the fact that I’ve been busier than a one-armed-paper-hanger this week, yeah?  And that busy-ness sorta let me forget about the fact that right about now I oughta be sitting on the beach sipping a Mai Tai.  Or some other suitably fruity adult beverage.

Amy reminded me.

Which made me sad.  And yes – a little pissy. 😉

Yep – thanks to CV19….we weren’t able to go this time around.  🙁

But – you’ve been totally awesome AGAIN this year and helped me earn the 2021 Inventive Trip!  Stampin’ Up! is giving all the folks who earned both trips an extended stay in Maui next year!!  Whoo-hoo!  Looking forward to spending a few extra days in paradise in about 10 months!  I think I also get DOUBLE adult beverages AND they have no calories.

I’m pretty sure!

So…I decided to make rum punch outta lemons…or something like that…and say a special thank you to ALL Y’ALL who helped me reach the point where I’d have something to MISS this year – and MORE to look forward to NEXT year!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

To that end…I’m offering up DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS starting today, thru the 12th (which is when I woulda been coming home!).

You’ll get DOUBLE Peppermint Reward points for every order of $50 or greater (before shipping and taxes) placed through my Online Store between now and Sunday, 12 July!!  As an added bonus, thanks to Bonus Days, you’ll be earning $5 coupon codes (one for each $50!) from Stampin’ Up! that you can redeem in August when the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly the Holiday Catalog) goes live for customer ordering!

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

This was really a collaboration – we both had some ideas about what the card should look like – and I think we made our vision happen!

We started with a piece of Crumb Cake that we stamped with the Peaceful Moments sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  Then we embossed it in the Brick 3D Embssing Folder and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then…we started stamping and die-cutting and coloring flowers!  Yes – it’s a LOT quicker to create a gorgeous cottage garden with paper and ink than actually planting flowers!!  🙂

We stamped all the Grace’s Garden images in Tuxedo Black and cut them out with their matching dies in the Garden Gateway Die set.  We also cut the wunnermus gate itself from Whisper White!

I set Jan to dimensionalizing the back of the archway – cutting Mini Dimensionals in half to fit.  We colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers in Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Rococo Rose.

Then?  We built the garden!  We added flowers with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.  We got almost everything laid on and then…I looked at her and said…do you think it maybe needs…a bow?!? 😉

She said – I WAS JUST THINKING THAT!

And that was the day that Jan was introduced to the transformative effect of….the double-loop Linen Thread bow! 😉

We adhered it with a Glue Dot – then popped on the last couple of flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel finished off the card front.

On the inside, we masked off part of the sentiment in Pampered Pets and stamped just “Always in Your Heart” in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Then – work with me here – we cut the fuzzy dog from Vellum, using the die in the Pets Die set.  See?  He’s there but NOT there but always in their hearts. 🙂

We adhered him with a single Glue Dot – then we popped a heart over the Glue Dot.  I cut the heart with the Dog Punch Punch and Jan colored it with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend (her friend had a shaggy boy dog) and then we swiped Clear Wink of Stella over that.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Grace’s Garden flowers on the front…

…and also on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This card – made as a pet sympathy card – could easily be a not-pet sympathy card, right?  Grace’s Garden and the matching Garden Gateway Dies, gives a quaint, cottage-y feel to any card.

And is perfect with the sentiment from Peaceful Moments.

If you stopped there…you’d have a very nice sympathy card for anyone.  Add in the Pampered Pets bundle and…boom.  Pet sympathy card!!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Tax day.

No – not Tax Day – like…not due today.

Nope – yesterday was tax preparation day for us.

Quite possibly my least favorite day of the year.  Well – least favorite week.  It takes us a minute….

Serious – I’d rather go to the dentist.  At least they give me the “good stuff”! 😉

Katy helped.

Finn helped.

It’s possible – maybe – that their definition of “help” is different than mine… 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Itty Bitty Birthday Card

Mornin’, y’all!  So…breaking news….We’re down to it, you guys.  Today.  Tomorrow.  And…gone!  The Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion that is!  I’ve seen a few joining specials since I came on board in 2014.  But this one really takes the cake.

Or…the BUNDLE, as it were.  Truly – this is an amazing joining offer!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

There are ALSO only two days remaining to earn an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards!  That means…when you fill that new catalog Wish List and spend $250 (before shipping and tax) – you’ll find yourself with a cool $50 in free money!!

Okay – promotional plug – done! 😉

I DID make a card for you today (were you starting to wonder??!) – using the stunning Celebrate Sunflowers BUNDLE (ie: one you could pick for FREE!!) – and the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set!  Take a look-see:

 

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders (the one with the butterflies).  I ran it thru twice – turning the panel to get the entire thing embossed.  Then I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere it to a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I embossed a smaller panel in the second of the two Meadow Moments embossing folders, matted it on Bumble Bee and adhered it to the card front with more Stampin’ Seal.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a length of Cinnamon Cider Ribbon.

On another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big flower from Celebrate Sunflowers in Bumble Bee ink.  Then I cut it with the outline die in the bundled Sunflower Dies.

I used the detailed flower die to cut a flower from a piece of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I also cut a flower center from a Cinnamon Cider piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed flower to the solid flower – only adhering the middle of the flower and leaving the petals loose.  I popped the flower center on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Cinnamon Cider ink on a piece of Very Vanilla.  Then I fussy cut the two words and edged each little piece with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment words with Liquid Glue – added a few 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers in Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla mat.  Then I used the Stamparatus to add the large sunflower in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another sunflower on the front…

…and I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Celebrate Sunflowers bundle is truly one of the best in the Annual Catalog, don’t you think? Between the gorgeous images in the stamp set – and your ability to cut flowers and leaves with the matching Sunflowers Dies….it’s amazing!  I hope you like!

And – I think this would be a great choice for your FREE bundle, too! 😉

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


So…our big “thing” this week has been getting a big load of free compost from the county recycling place.

And mixing it with other stuff.

And putting it in our new flower bed.

Part 1 – get the stuff.  That was the genesis of the wait-to-load scenario from yesterday’s post.

Once we got it home – Dad and son (aka Finn) – unloaded said free compost.

A work-site always needs a supervisor.

So…although the dump trailer got all the way…up to full dumping height – the compost didn’t want to come out.

Here’s where our OSHA supervisor lost control of the jobsite.

Dad – forgetting that he’s not 35.  Or…even 45!…anymore….

Decided this would be a good idea.

And – since he couldn’t get all the compost out from there…

And then – the compost started to move.

Down.

With Dad.

Unlike Mom – who would never had made it that far to begin with and, if she had, would have been on her sizeable hindquarters at this point – Dad just rode it down.  All those years walking rafters and riding young racehorses who weren’t on board with the whole thing…he’s a bit of a monkey.  Even at…not-even-55-anymore!

OSHA supervisor?  No citation?  No warning?  Hello?!?

Stampin’ Up! Way to Goat Birthday with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used the new and totes adorbs Way To Goat stamp set with new 2020-2022 In Color DSP and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for this fun and easy card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from this week – I went down across the diagonal left-to-right!

From the moment I saw the Way To Goat stamp set in the new catalog, I’ve wanted it.  Not for the G.O.A.T. piece – although that’s pretty cute and au currant.  No – it was because as soon as I saw the goats I heard Julie Andrews singing Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!!

LONELY GOATHERD ... SINGER, JULIE ANDREWS ... FILM, SOUND OF MUSIC ...

You see it, right? 😉

I started with some polka-dot Misty Moonlight paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and used Stampin’ Seal to mat it on Bumble Bee for the card front.  I wrapped some sparkly Misty Moonlight/Silver twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the goat-with-flower image from Way To Goat in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I colored her with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Her hair is…of course!…colored with my Light Misty Moonlight blends and her horns with the Ivory Blend.

I cut a same-size Stitched So Sweetly rectangle from Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color DSP and then adhered the goat-girl to that, slightly offset, with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a figure-eight looped bow of Flowers For Every Season sparkly twine.

On another piece of Whisper White, in Misty Moonlight, I stamped a Way To Goat sentiment.  I cut it – and a Bumble Bee DSP mat – from a smaller Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle die and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals – some double-stacked to accommodate the bow – to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Using my Light Magenta Madness Blend – I colored one of the small Paper Flowers from the Boho Indigo Product Medley, and adhered it over the stamped flower with a Glue Dot.  If you don’t have the medley – get it at once!  Seriously.  Or…you could just color the flower with the bullet-tip end of your Stampin’ Blend.

I adhered a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second Way To Goat sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I used my Stamparatus to stamp what is – obviously! – the Mama goat in Tuxedo Black. I colored her the same as flower-girl on the front!

I use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Mama on the front – and a Misty Moonlight sentiment.  Cuz I love it…

…and more of the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  And mama and another sentiment.  I had to put her on here with her side-eye….. just had to…

Et Voila!  I think Way To Goat may be one of the cutest stamp sets ever!  I just love it – and I hope you love it, too!

So…today is the 28th.  There are only 30 days in June.  Which means – you’ve got like….three days (I am a math WHIZ!!) to take advantage of the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

That SAME three days applies to your chance to earn an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards – cut the Kickoff Celebration ends on the 20th, too.  Just sayin…

Finn Fan Fix


One of the first things I taught Finn – and one I insist on with him – is to sit and wait when we’re getting into a vehicle – until I tell him to Load.  And – more importantly, when we’re getting OUT somewhere, he knows to sit and wait – even as the van/car/truck door is opening – until I tell him Out.

This is not only the polite way to behave – nothing annoys me more than a dog who is bouncing and carrying on to get in or out of a vehicle.  And nothing on earth is more dangerous – to THEM – than leaping from the car as soon as a door opens.

Which is all a lead up to this.

Looks pretty straightforward – but….what HE is seeing is…

Dog-crack.  A place he wants to be worse than almost anything.

So this….

Is Finny being a Very.  Good.  Boy.

And then…Load!

Soooo happy to be going….ANYWHERE!!

And the nicer thing is – he just lays down in the back and rides.

He really is the best dog on the planet. 🙂

Also?  Possibly the cutest.

Finn Fan Fix

I’ve been owned by a few dogs in my life.

By few I mean a LOT! 🙂

But none of them – not even one – has used his/her lips to his/her advantage the way the Finn-y-win can.

And does.

A LOT.

Case in point.

I don’t know exactly what he wanted here – probably whatever his dad was eating – but…he’s got me figured out, for sure.

They get me every time.  And he totally knows it.

Resistance is futile.

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Birthday Locking Gate Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week went well – our did.  And it went fast.  Like…Warp Factor Four, Mr. Sulu-fast.  What the heck??!  I mean – seriously, just last week I was 28 – and then…I was 29 in the blink of an eye.  At this rate I’ll be 60 before this time next year!

See…THAT’S funny cuz I actually WILL be 60 this time next year – with or without Warp-Speed-Time-Passing! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This is a gate card – without a bellyband.  Instead, it’s got a unique “locking mechanism” that holds the card closed.

As you can see – I did two versions.  The one on the right uses pieces that were leftover from putting my June Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin together – cool, huh?

That one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I first saw this fun-fold when I got a birthday card from my friend Elisha Smith – then I took a peek at Amanda Chatsworth’s video.  And then – I modified it all a little bit to work as an A2 sized card and fit a Medium Envelope.

I started by creating a regular gate card – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  I used Basic Black for the lemons card and Misty Moonlight for the Boho Indigo card.

I adhered Artistry Blooms DSP or Boho Indigo DSP to their mats – Daffodil Delight or Very Vanilla – with Liquid Glue and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the “gates”.

The locking mechanism – which also functions as the card front – is created with four pieces of the mat-colored card stock – all the same size (2 5/8″ x 4 3/8″).  On two of the panels – I scored and folded them at 1 5/16″ on the short side.

I used Liquid Glue to “sandwich” the two folded panels between the other two panel to create an “X”.  Best way is to check the video – fast forward to about the 13 minute mark! 🙂

Once the “mechanism” was complete – it was just a matter of decorating!

The lemon card uses a black/dotted sticker and some die cuts from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit  I tied a little bow from the black/white twine in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment on that one is from the Fancy Phrases set – stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White.  It’s adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the adhesive-backed sequins from the kit as well!

On the Boho Indigo card, I adhered another piece of the Boho Indigo DSP to the mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment – also from the medley – on one of the pretty vanilla/gold die cut tags (from the medley – there is a LOT in this medley, y’all!).  I looped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon thru the top and tied it with a length of gold twine from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

I used some of the pretty leaves die cuts from the medley, adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue – then popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some foil flowers AND some of the sweet little Paper Flowers with Liquid Glue.  Finally – I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots cuz it seemed like the right thing to do! 🙂

On the inside – I added a sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Rich Razzleberry to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another leaf and a lemon with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it into the Lemon card.

For the inside of the Boho Indigo card, I just stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the leaves image from the medley stamp set in Garden Green – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  I matted it on Very Vanilla.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope for my Lemon card got a sweet little flower from Fancy Phrases in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.  I added Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

On the front of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added more leaves from Boho Indigo in Garden Green – and then added the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a pretty easy fold – the mechanism is the only “hard” part – and it’s not very hard, either, once you see how it’s done!  If you’ve got the June Box of Sunshine kit – I hope this will give you some ideas about more fun projects to make with those extra pieces.  And – you NEED to get the Boho Indigo Product Medley if you don’t have it already.  It is simply amazing!!

I hope you like! 😉

There’s less than a week left in the month of June, y’all – which means less than a week to take advantage of the Pick a Free Bundle Joining Special and the Catalog Kickoff Ordering Celebration to get those extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Don’t miss out!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, I couldn’t find Finn.

Which was weird, cuz I knew he’d come in with me.

I’d taken his collar off.

I remembered it clearly.

But…he was disappeared.

I looked all over – even started to wonder about alien abductions.  Wormholes opening in the living room.

I gave Katy the side-eye…what did you do to your brother?

And then – I found him.

To be clear – I walked by him twice looking for him (it’s actually dark in there – this is a flash shot).  That’s a tiny little hallway to our third bedroom.  From the kitchen looking towards the back of the house – he was completely invisible.

He truly couldn’t have shoe-horned himself any deeper into that tiny little cranny!

Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a cool sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw our sketch, I right away thought of the new Posted for You bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  So…that’s what I used – and I paired it with some beautiful Artistry Blooms DSP.  Take a look-see:

And – our sketch!

I’m also playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock that I ran thru my die cutting/embossing machine twice in the new Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.  I ran it thru once and then flipped the card stock around to emboss the other side.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Basic Black card base.

I cut a piece of Artistry Blooms DSP and embossed it in the second folder from the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders – the one with the butterflies…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel onto a Daffodil Delight mat and then onto the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp two of the images in the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When the ink was dry, I cut each of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Using my Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, I colored the images.

Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped the Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut it with the small Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using Glue Dots – I adhered a short length of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon – then I adhered the sentiment over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green, I added the post-mark image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the post-mark image in Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and more of the Artistry Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – the images and sentiments are lovely.  And – I really love the bundled Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (yes – I know – I love ALL punches – but THIS one is sort of perfect!!).

Et Voila!  I hope you like. 🙂

And – this is one of THIRTY-FOUR bundles you can choose from when you join the team before the end of June during the Pick a FREE Bundle Joining Special!  Just throwing that out there!  😉
