Stampin’ Pretty CASE

Hello everyone!

I am off to print out pics for my mum & dad’s album. I REALLY need to get started on that project! And … somehow I have to fit in organising Sandy’s birthday party that is on Friday … and buy & wrap pressies to go to Vanuatu for Gav’s family that is there … AND … AND … AND…

So … before I duck out to the shops … here is a lovely card that I found on Mary’s Blog … and just had to CASE! It was an irresistable urge!!!

I think it was the colours that caught my eye first. I didn’t have the “Bermuda Bay” in-colour … so I just substituted with “Taken with Teal” and … of course … I didn’t have the “Scallop Trim Border Punch” (that was a Sale-a-bration US product – I wonder if we will get this pretty punch?) … and I didn’t have the magnetic “movers & shapers” Big Shot die that Mary used to cut the star shape. So … again I substituted by punching with my Full Heart punch – although … you are much more limited with placement than what you are using the Big Shot die.

Sorry this is so quick … but I really do have to fly! Stampin’ Hugs xxx

    Your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS!! I love simple cards and less is definitely more.
    It’s a pity that I did not buy this heart punch

    big hugs Regina
    Andrea adds: The “Full Heart” punch is in our large catalogue … so perhaps you will have another opportunity with your next big catty? And … I am convinced too … that less is more! Thanks Regina! xxx
