Good morning peeps! It’s Friday! Saying that always makes me happy! So, yesterday morning I was looking at all of my blogs that I read and that clever Mary Fish (www.stampinpretty.com) had a great tip. Save the leftover rubber from your stamp sets because the pieces can be used for other things. Her video yesterday showed you how to use a piece from the Elementary Elegance Clear Mount Set (Sale-A-Bration 2012) for color blocking. I had to try it and I just so happen to have the same set. It worked like a charm! I used some Not Quite Navy Card Stock with some Very Vanilla. Mary’s technique is used on the greeting with Pool Party Ink for the color blocking. It is then punched out with the Curly Label Punch. The background is embossed using the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the Language of Friendship Set for the blossoms and punched them out with the Boho Blossoms Punch. The cute little border across the bottom uses the Scallop Edge Border Punch and another stamp from Elementary Elegance. My trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig helped me line up the butterflies perfectly. Check out Mary’s video to see how quick and easy this technique is. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
