Yay! Summer's Here!


Finally....I was able to upload my sample for Laura's Sketch #53 at 2 Sketches 4 You.  I'm not sure if blogger was down or if my satellite internet was running slow like it sometimes does.  Anyway, I'm so glad I could finally get this project uploaded.  I had tons of fun working with our sponsors this week, Kelly Marie Alvarez's Lawn Fawn stamps and Scor-It's Position-It tool.  




Here's a quick tutorial for you on using the Position-It to create a grassy border.
First, place the acetate sheet square inside the wooden positioner.  Then ink up and stamp your image in the corner.






Next, apply a dotto adhesive under your paper to secure it in place.  Then, align the positioner and the acetate over your paper where you'd like the image to show up.



Next, remove the acetate and stamp the image in that same spot.



Repeating the last two steps several times will give an evenly stamped grassy border.




How stinkin' cute are these images from the Critters in the Burb stamp set.  I love the paper-pieced butterfly and tree:)  Head on over to 2 Sketches 4 You and give Laura's awesome sketch a try...you may have the Card of the Week and win some goodies!




I'm giving this fun card to my school neighbor tomorrow:)  It's report card day and I'll miss the teachers that I work with.  But, you gotta love SUMMER!!!  Time to STAMP!
