Playing with my new toys...

Happy Monday morning!! This past weekend I had the chance to shop at Archiver's and with the goodies I purchased I wanted to make a card using a couple things. My new items are the QuickCuts Embossing Folder "Plants" and the "Apron Lace" border punch by Fiskars.

I picked out my colors, embossed my image and using my Poppin' Pastel chalks to color in the image. Then finishing off the card by adding a very vanilla panel using my Top Note die and new border punch for some added detail. Plus I LOVE this ribbon... which I have no idea where I picked it up!? :)

Just a note! With the July 4th weekend coming and we have company coming my posting maybe very sparse!! I hope to post one more time before the weekend, but if I don't have a super 4th of July!!!

Enjoy your day, stamp your heart out and be safe if you are traveling!! Thanks for poppin' in for a visit... I truly enjoy it!!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Hi Michelle. I LOVE your card, especially the way you've used that top note with the punch, it looks fab. The colours are so cheery too :o) I wish I could get that top note over here in the UK. I really love it x

By the way, you said that my little html code about the heart shape didn't work, sorry about that. It looked fine as I posted it lol.

Here goes...

& hearts ;

You need to do them all together with no spaces, so it's ambersand/hearts/semi-colon. Hope it works for you!! If not, just drop me another note!

what a neat border punch and how cool it is paired with a portion of the top note die. You certainly have got your money's worth out of that thing. And I never get tired of seeing all the inventaive ways you use it.
