We all have our little secrets, but I guess this one isn't a secret anymore!

I really love my new stampin up cardstock and designer paper. My first card with it is with Tangerine Tango and the designer paper. The stamps are from my new hostess set Organic Garden. Just love those dragonflies! I used a large Marvy scalloped circle punch with a little edge piercing and the flower from the stamp. I just added great new matching button and a little twine to balance it off.

I double stamped the dragonfly and cut out the second image, adherring it to the matching image to add a little interest. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart and the saying stamp from an old Anne Griffin set. A little Old Olive grosgrain at the end of the dragon strip and a little more piercing on the tips of the orange and Bob's your uncle!!! Hope you enjoy it.

Peyton's 2nd Birthday

My granddaughter had her birthday on Monday and she just loved all her clothes and really didn't have the time of day for the toys!!! She really is a clothes horse!!! At two, believe it or not!. I made her a card with SU papers and the cuttlebug to emboss the back with 2 different folders. I like that look. It adds a little more interest, I think. I used the great big flower stamp and stamped on the reverse side then cut it out. My new scalloped punch and 2 consecutive sized round punches for the center bit. Also, I used my great new scalloped edge punch. Wow, does it really make it easier.
