I am loving this stamp. Only $10.95. I saw THIS card and changed it to a standard card size rather than 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I would have liked to incorporate the ribbon but there was no room. I do like it just as it is. You can't really see it in the photo, but I drew over the snowflake with my stardust gel pen. Recipe
Stamp: Dasher
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate
Other: SU Scallop Border Punch

I made the next card for the upcoming anniversary of my brother in law and his wife. I had seen a card on Patty Bennett's blog HERE (one of the swaps she received at convention) and used it as my inspiration. I really like how it turned out.

Stamp: Non SU
Card Stock: Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette (retired)
Ink: Cameo Coral (Craft)
Other: Top Note Die for the Big Shot, Simple Flower Embosslit, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Clear Embossing Powder, Brass Brads, Stardust Gel Pen

My brother in law's birthday is coming up very soon so I pulled out the trusty Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I think it is the most used set I own. I saw THIS card and made a few changes to use supplies I had on hand.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, It's Your Birthday, Sanded
Card Stock: Kraft, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Antique Brass Brads

Yesterday, Judy and I made the following two cards. I am determined to use up as much as I can of my retired DSP (and I do have a lot) and when I found THIS card and THIS card I knew it would be a good start. I plan to make multiples of both cards to have on hand, but I will also make some gift packs as well.

Stamps: Oval All
Card Stock: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red (retired), Pink Pirouette (retired), Bella Rosa DSP
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Markers - pretty in pink, rose red, old olive
Other: White Taffeta Ribbon, Stardust Gel Pen, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch

This card also uses retired DSP. Don't you love the little flower pot made with the Tab Punch? The original card had a background layer that had been stamped and embossed. I chose to use DSP.

Stamps: Sweet Stems (not in current catalogue, but is still available from the dormant list)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Delicate Dots DSP (retired)
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Markers - Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Certainly Celery
Other: Certainly Celery Ribbon (retired), Stardust Gel Pen

Have a great day
