Addicted to Stamps and More #126

Its challenge time at ATSM!
And its Everybody's favorite theme- Amything Goes!


I go the idea for this card from the amazingly talented Laura Bassen, which has made a video demonstrating the technique over at Papertrey's Make it Monday. Its a worthwhile video to watch and its short....Its easy to do, but a bit time consuming, as you have to make several die-cuts and glue them together. But the result is great  -I love it!


Materials: all die cuts from Papertrey - the silver stars are the leftovers from the Papertrey snowflakes, the little trees you get from the happy sentiment - its the inside of the  letter "Y" turned upside down :)
the other sentiments are by STAMPlorations (Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2Bloom Sketches: Sunflower Artsy)

You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
