Surprise...

Today at My Creative Time we are doing Favorite Stamp Of The Month projects. This month the stamp sets we are showcasing are Paper Princess and Polka Dot Surprise. I used both on my card. Love using some of the older sets...there are so many great stamps in them! Don't forget your older stuff when a new release comes out...THEY ARE ALL AMAZING!


I must say...this is probably my fave color combo ever! I LOVE them. Any way, I found this martini cut file in the Silhouette store...so cute! I assembled it...inked edges a bit...and popped it up on the tag I cut using one of the Tag Dies. I manipulated the die on the paper so I could cut it a tad longer. If you leave one edge hang off the cutting plate so it doesn't cut, run it through. Then for the second cut, you scoot the die down the paper a bit. Now leave the other end hang off the plate and run it through again. This technique allows you to lengthen the cut of the die you are using.


I stamped the "Surprise" and attached it flat down on the tag...no dimensionals. Then I stamped the other sentiment on the Stitched Oval Die. The martini glass is also added with dimensionals. Then I put dimensional adhesive on the back of the tag and attached to the card front. I wrapped some hemp around the patterned background before popping it up on the card base. And tell me....who doesn't love the look of sequins?!!! Thanks to Navy Wife Nikki...I'm getting hooked on them as well! 


So, there you have it...here's what I used on this project.
