Scallop Border Punch Tip!

Today is the last day to order from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog! And, here is one last card sample using the Very Vintage Stampin' Around Wheel from the mini catalog. The card base is Crushed Curry, & the Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon will be retiring June 20th! The Well Scripted sentiment set is one of my favorites (also retiring!).

To make the Scalloped Trimed square, I used a square piece of 2 1/4" cardstock. The scallopes work out well with this size, then layered 1 3/8 circle punch on top!

This card was very simple to complete, & I really liked how it turned out!

Thanks for visiting, come back soon!

Trendy Trees & the Two Step Promo!

Today's card features the Trendy Trees stamp set. I was ready for some bright colors, so I reached for some of the retiring Bold Brights cardstock for my card. Only Orange & Green Galore. I also used some of the Sweet Pea designer paper, which I am sad to report is Sold Out! The Trendy Trees stamp set is included in the Stampin' Up! Two Step Into Spring promotion offering 20% off select stamp sets. The Two Step into Spring promotion will end April 30th!

Thanks to everyone that attended my April Card Class! I truly enjoyed stamping with each of you, and I hope you know how much I appreciate your business!!! It is such a joy to share my love of stamping with you.

Happy Easter to each of you!!!
