We're going to miss you BUNCHES!

Paper peicing is one of my favorite techniques.  You can add so much with just a little paper different paper.  If all you had were stamps and black ink you could paper piece just about anything and it would be fab!
So here I've made a card for one of my dear co-workers Jan who is taking a position elsewhere. :(  (Good for her, bad for the rest of us!)  I've used my Lawn Fawn set Say Cheese and my new Paper Smooches set Vegtastic (another new fave besides LF!!!)  Now guess what technique I used to enter Lawnscapings current current challenge (#20)...I'll give you one guess...hint: PP...yes, you've got it!  Paper piecing!

I had a ton of fun making this card.  I love the bright colors and the jolly feel.  The twine and button just bring it together for me.  I really hope Jan likes it!

Thanks for stopping!

"Falling" for two step stampin'

In general, I wouldn't call myself a two-step stamper.  I don't think I really have the vision, or...if I am being honest...the patience to do things in two steps.  For example, I won't use a stampamajig.  Nope, don't think so, I flat out refuse!  I'd rather screw it up about 10 times or not do it at all than use one of those.  I don't know why or what it says about me, but...I accept myself as I am. 

When I first saw the Gently Falling set from SU! I thought, I'll never use it!  But after seeing it time after time with the delicious Spice Cake DSP (also SU!) I had to have it.  Seeing those leaves in the pool party is just my fave.  So I got it and it sat for a while, but now I am finally using it and this is what I have to show for myself.

What do you think?  Such fun paper!  Thinking outside the box by reminding myself I don't have to use a fall set for thanksgiving(!) I made this masculine birthday card.

OK, lunch break is over, time to work! Thanks for stopping!
