Anyway, I went through a bunch of my smaller stamps to see if I could find some that worked together and I was fretting that I wouldn't find anything I liked to use together. Then I remembered that my Hanna Stamps had some smaller images on them so I pulled those out of their case and found the perfect ones!
I must admit, the color choices were based on the American Craft flowers that I wanted to use so I went through my SU! cardstock until I found the perfect ones. :) THEN I found out that the fifty cent roll of ribbon I tossed into my cart at Michael's (because it was fifty cents after all!) matched the cardstock perfectly. Oh my! AND THEN I remembered that I found some little bling stick-on rhinestones at Wal*Mart and THEY turned out to be the perfect color, too. I'm tellin' ya. The stars are aligned for me today with this card. LOL!
Stamps: Hanna Stamps But I Need It!, and a little sentiment that I can't remember where it came from and there aren't any markings on the sheet. :(
CS and papers: All CS is from SU! with the exception of my beloved Georgia Pacific white CS.
Accessories: Cuttlebug and my Swiss dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug Tiny Tags die, Nestabilities, ribbon from Michael's, my Perfect Layers, American Crafts paper flowers, rhinestone brad to attach the flowers, and my fancy bling dots from Wal*Mart.
Whew! What a fun weekend I've had with papercrafting and cardmaking! My husband was away on the boat all weekend so I had lots of (mostly) uninterrupted time for myself. I sometimes like these kinds of weekends.
So to celebrate my fabulous weekend, I'm going to offer up some blog candy. Up for grabs is:
1 Cuttlebug embossing folder-Swiss Dots. (Oh my, I know! I found a site with them so I ordered one for my friend, one for me and one for blog candy!)
1 Corner rounder punch-yes, I did use it a few times but it is still in perfect order.
1 package of Target Dollar spot stick-on pearls.
5 sets of the Studio G clear stamps from Michael's.
2 Sakura pens--duplicates I had!
1 roll of cupcake ribbon
1 roll of sticky striped ribbon
A selection of stamped images (not shown)
