Either way, I have some WAY fun stuff to show you today.
First, I decided to tackle today's Inspiration Challenge with some new toys. Stef picks out the most unbelievable stuff every week, and this week's color combo really grabbed me.
Field Flowers and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. Can you believe I didn't already have either of these? GAH. I've been wanting that punch ever since Megan Daves showed us how to use it as a teeny scalloped border at convention.
So what I did is stamped the base images in Crumb Cake, and the detailed image (it's a two step stamp set) in Poppy Parade.
Hand Penned Holidays in black half off the white panel and stamped it again on my card base and just lined them up.
Then I noticed all the teeny weeny dots from the border punch all over my mat and I thought they'd look so cool on my card front!!
Adhesive is easier than you think for these little buggers. I just put a little dab of glue on my mat, and then used my piercing tool to pick up each dot, rub it in glue and stick it on the card. SO easy! The piercing tool has magical qualities for holding small items.
I think the dots really add something too - it was a little plain before.
Now, after that, I did something SERIOUSLY fun.
I made a purse out of a box of animal crackers!!
Wanna see? Come on over to Project Reanimate.
Hope you have a great Caturday!
