I am Back

Hi Stamping Friends,

I can't believe where summer has gone. One day it was July the next it was September. Kinda like the weather. We are finally having summer here in Manitoba.
I have had so much fun with my grandkids since they moved here. I have also been busy fixing up my class stamping space.

I have not been doing much stamping till today, Beate Johns shared a card today and I fell in love with the lacy flower she had on her card. She had used a Nestabilitie die cut plate but I do not have that and thought I could improvise by using the Lacy Border SU punch. I punched a 1 1/4" by 11" piece of white card stock, then I put it through the crimper so that I could shape it into a circle. I punched a 1 3/4" circle out of some scraps to adhere this lacy circle to. The card itself is a Gate Fold card.



This is the inside of the card.



Recipe:

Stamp Set: Good Friend
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, White, and To The Nines DSP

Accessories: Dimensionals, Ribbon (retired)

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors. The idea of using the crimper and cutting the circle is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing!

Good to "see" you back and I'm glad you are enjoying having your grandchildren close by.

This card is wonderful and I love the idea of the flower. Nicely done.
