Sitting Here Thinkin' of You
Happy Inspiration Holly-Day Friday!
I am so glad it's Friday and I have the weekend off! Whoo Hoo!!! What are you doing this weekend? I hope you have a chance to get some stamps inky and create something beautiful.
Today is my day to showcase something over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog. In celebration of Laura adding some new La La Land Dies, I decided to use my new Beret Marci image and the bench (soon to be added), Tree and Corner Filigree Die. I also used my My Favorite Things grass border die and the yummy background paper is Echo Park - Love Story. I inked up Marci with my Black Memento Ink and glued down my dies with the Best Glue Ever. And I added some pearls here and there. Remember, if you do not see the item you are looking for in the store to email Laura and she will let you know when she can get that for you. It's so pleasantly surprising to email a store owner and ask for a certain product and have her email you right back and let you know when it will be available to you. I love that about her!
I have been waiting for these dies to hit the store for a while so I am super excited about them being added. I love this tree die! There are so many doily opportunities I can think of to use it for. And I love that the filigree corner matches and that they go together. I had some frustration last summer when I used these for the first time. Any die this intricate is going to take some work to cut out. I added a double shim of card stock to my big shot and ran it through three times and viola, it cut perfectly! Same with the corner and the bench. I added three layers of grass border to added to the dimension for the bench. I LOVE my dies!!!
