STILL USING YOUR SCISSORS TO CREATE FLAGGED ENDS? Flagged ends (as used on today's birthday card and in the Mojo Sketch) are a hot trend in papercrafting. This 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial shows you how to use a Square Punch to obtain quick, clean and consistent results.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The new Stampin' Up! embossing powder colors are gorgeous. I used Tempting Turquoise on the gift image for a shiny, raised finish. Other available colors include: Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo.
- A snippet of White Baker's Twine gives the buttons a stitched look. Mini Glue Dots keep the buttons and twine solidly in place.
- The birthday sentiment with the snazzy font is from Happiest Birthday Wishes, one of the exclusive hostess stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.
- DID YOU KNOW? You can earn ANY hostess set starting with a $150 product order. Available when you order on-line, too!! See the NEW Stampin' Up! Hostess Rewards Program!
- Heat embossing gets neat and tidy. Re-purpose your wood-mount stamp storage containers (or find comparable inexpensive plastic storage) as full-time embossing storage and trays–all in one. I have a container for each color and pop them back in the drawer "as is" when done. My preferred size is 6.5 x 9" to easily cover and swish an A2 sized card layer.
