  • It’s a delight layering the dinosaur using the No Bones About It photopolymer (clear) stamp set–one of My Favorite Things from the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Catalog.

  • Easy as 1, 2, 3!  I used all three sizes (2″, 1 1/2″ and 1″) to create the flagged ends using the Banner Triple Punch.  I demonstrate how to use this multi-tasking punch in this video.
