Remarkable 25th Anniversary Blog Tour

This month's featured 25th Anniversary stamp set is -- BEST OF LOVE.

So many cute words in this set with a beautiful floral heart.  You can do cards from funny, to love, to wedding.  So many options.  My sample this month only uses 2 stamps from the set, but wanted to show you a neat trick with the Petite Pennants Builder punch.

 So how I made the design at the bottom was to run a piece of Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Punch out 8 of the small pennants from the Elegant Eggplant cs.  Now place them end to end on the Melon Mambo card stock aligning the wide end to the edge of the Melon Mambo and matching the points in the center.  The Melon Mambo card stock is 4" x 2 3/4".  Then put a rhinestone or mini silver brad at the tip of each to give it a little bling.
Product used:  Old Olive, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White cardstocks and Brights Collection DSP.  Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant ink  Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Petite Pennants Builder punch, Labels Collection Framelits an Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon.

Enjoy the blog tour.  Next month we will feature another of the 25th Anniversary Stamp Sets.I hope you enjoyed my little trick with the Petite Pennants Builder punch.  I always like to learn new ways to use a punch.  Leave a comment.  Click on the button below to go to Susan Carlson's blog.
