3 Days and Counting!

Sale-A-Bration is right around the corner as it starts this Tuesday the 25th ... just three more days!!! Yippeee.. and can you believe this is one of the stamp sets you can earn for FREE! It is called "Bliss" and is a set of 5. Not only is one of the stamps a background stamp, included are a bird, a butterfly, a flower and the word "Bliss".  Here's a card Debbie Henderson created from this set:

Notice the pretty edging around the 2.5" circle? Hee's how to do that... use a strip of Whisper White cardstock and use the Eyelet Border Punch on one edge. Using your Crimper, insert the strip and crimp it about 4 times. Use your Bone Folder to even out the bumps. These 2 steps actually help in breaking down the fibers so that the paper becomes easy to work with.

Next apply sticky strip to the back of the circle. Start adhering your cardstock strip to the back of the circle by gathering the strip about every half inch. Be sure to sponge the edges before you adhere it.

Another little touch is adding Pearl Jewels to the stamped image and in the center of the flower and each little heart!

Emboss the Designer Series Paper with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder and carefully sand the embossed area with a sanding block. This removes the colored layer of the DSP and reveals white!

Cardstock: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
