STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The star of my "dynamic paper duo" is the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set, new in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. Need a FREE copy of the Summer Mini Catalog? Email me (U.S. only, please).
- I used the Itty Bitty Bits butterfly to accent the flower centers on the card and it adds a hefty dose of jazz to the tag on the Scallop Bag. All were cropped with the Itty Bitty Shapes Circle Punch.
- A touch of paper piercing finishes the look of the card. Kraft card stock softens the color "voltage" of the Tempting Turquoise and Real Red.
- Did you know? Kraft card stock will be renamed Crumb Cake with the Stampin' Up! Color Renovation. For the first time (July 1), Kraft/Crumb Cake will be available as an ink pad, marker and more!
- Before assembling the Scallop Bag (created with a Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Bag w/Scallops Bigz XL Die), I punched out the window with a Wide Oval Punch.
- A window sheet attached with Mini Glue Dots creates a perfect peek-a-boo for the colorful M & M's.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Stampin' Up! is experiencing a higher demand than expected on the
retiring colors and retiring color supplies. Items may go on back order
or be permanently out of stock sooner than expected. If you have any favorites, I
suggest you place
