It Takes a Lot of Steps to Make a Big Hit

I saw the title of this post on a Polaroid marketing page.  I believe this is a Polaroid camera.  At least it looks like the one my Uncle Chris had back in the day.  Either way, the slogan is very fitting for this card as well;  Lots of steps of grunging, sponging & layering to make a Big Hit.

Paper Piercing Innovations

Stampin’ UP’s new Essentials Paper Piercing Packs are taking paper piercing to a new level.  The monthly challenge with my Stampin’ UP! group, Pieces of Heart, was a project using paper piercing.   Double whammy; July Stamp Camp card and the monthly challenge!   Love it!

Invisible to the eye, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla just a smidgeon smaller than the design unit.  The Comfort Cafe DSP strip, Cajun Craze embossed piece and ribbon were all adhered to the Very Vanilla cardstock and then adhered to the Summer Starfruit card base.  My customers appreciated this immensely.


Any of the sentiments with the Blooming with Kindness stamp set would be fitting for this stunning card.
