I know I've mentioned it before - I love the new set from Stampin' Up! - Really Good Greetings. I also really like the Mosaic Madness set - just for the fact that it's so modern and fresh. It's got a classic feel, and yet very graphic. Prepare yourself for many more ideas with these two stamp sets.
This is a card that I CASE'd from Stampin' Success. That's a magazine that demonstrators get from Stampin' Up! and it's full of great project ideas, samples and techniques too. A great added perk to being a demonstrator.
The frame on this card was very easy to create using the Stampin' Trimmer. I love the Stampin' Trimmer so much that I've pushed aside my guillotine cutter and use the Stampin' Trimmer instead. That is saying a LOT! because I love my guillotine cutter, and still use it when I need to cut multiples. Since the Stampin' Trimmer has ruler guides on the flap/holder/thing-a-ma-bob, cutting frames is a cinch! Just decide how thick you want your frame to be, in this case 3/4", set your paper at the 3/4" mark to the right of the cutting slot, set your blade at the 3/4" mark on the flap/holder/thing-a-ma-bob and cut until you are 3/4" from the bottom. Turn your paper 1/4 turn and repeat. Continue to repeat until you are all the way around and have a hole cut. And the bonus here - same as yesterday's post - you are left with a scrap that you can do something else with! No paper wasted!
I hope you like today's card - do me a favor and share with your friends!
