Hello and Goodbye

Hello and Goodbye

Goodbye to Sweet Shapes, a stamp set that has been a joy to stamp with. I have always been fascinated with the way the background stamp displays various shades of whatever ink you apply. Very cool!

I used the colors from Kristina Werner’s 16th Color Inspiration challenge (love this combination!), and I also tried tying a little bow the way she did in her Bow-Tying Made Easy video tutorial.

Of course I had to use my new Scallop Edge Punch again! It’s so much easier and faster than making scallops with the corner rounder punch. It absolutely is a must have! Will it be on your first order from the new catalog?

Thanks for stopping by!
