Lovin’ This Card from Elisha . . .


And you will love this card, too.  Elisha Smith, a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals Virtual Community, sent me this adorable gift and card combination.  I found the way she layered the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape (133001) so striking and the "hello" on the diagonal with the trio of brads is a brilliant way to "play" the angles.  Ditto on the paper piercing.  She simply wrapped the box with coordinating designer series paper (diggin' that touch of washi on the end as well).

Elisha doesn't have a blog but offers more of her talent in her Splitcoaststampers gallery HERE.

So what was in the box?  A delicious collection of locally made (Ohio) chocolates that were my sustenance these past few days while contractors inhabited my kitchen.  Fingers crossed that my under cabinet lighting arrives tomorrow and the electricians can install it in My Stampin' Studio!

  3. Hi Mary…Just wondered what you do to keep your Clear Mount stamps stuck to the blocks so they don’t fall off as you go to stamp a project. What advise do you have?………….Jeanie Stein
