Lookie, lookie – I got my pre-order in :-) As a demonstrator, we are allowed to pre-order items from the upcoming new catalog (some of them were even discounted an additional 20% :-)

Stamps: Deer Friends, Heard from the Heart
Paper: Bella Rose, Choc Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Choc Chip, Riding Hood Red,
Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8 Circle punch, Choc 5/8″ Grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals

What do you think about the bow – cute, huh? It’s really simple. Just take one piece, wrap it around the Whisper White cardstock and tape it in the back. Take another piece (about 6 1/2″ long), make a loop (tape the ends together) and add a little adhesive in the center so the middle is stuck down. Take a third piece and wrap it around the middle of your loop, secure it in the back and add to the ribbon on your card.

Ric Rac ribbon idea found from Julie Davison at http://juliedavison.blogspot.com/2008/07/ric-rac-with-scallop-edge-punch.html

This one was also inspired by “Julie Davison” whose card can be seen at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/981448?cat=14268

Inspired by “Miss Boo” whose card can be seen at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga…2219?cat=14268 Don’t know if 2 flowers qualify as a “bunch”, maybe the next one will have 3 :-) The flower centers are White Taffeta ribbon tied in a loose knot with the ends poked through and secured on the back. I was trying to have it look like a Frend Knot in needlepoint.

Stamps: Happiness Always, Sock Monkey
Paper: Shimmery White, Pacific Point, Certainly Celery
Ink: Pacific Point, Certainly Celery
Accessories: White Taffeta ribbon
Techniques: 2-step stamping

This one was cased with slight changes from “mudflapmamma” whose card can be seen at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/978735?cat=14261
