Bargain Paper

Thursday, May 1, 2014

Stopped into Winners/Homesense today and scored a 6 x 6 pad of paper for $3.99.  It's older paper, but new to me and I'm a happy camper.

Love this new set from Avery Elle...the little brushstrokes and the wonderful fonts for the sentiments are simply awesome!

Just cut some of my new paper...stamped the little brushstrokes in three different Avery Elle inks.  Then the heart was punched out of a coordinating paper and popped up on foam tape.  A little baker's twine bow, a smattering of gold sequins and done!  Simple, easy peasy as one, two three.  My kind of card!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Pool Party and MME Sunny
Ink:  Avery Elle Aquamarine, Mimosa, Cherry; and Ranger Archival Black
Stamps:  Avery Elle Brushed
All the other stuff:  heart punch, baker's twine, gold sequins, foam tape, adhesive, corner rounder

Challenges entered:
CASE Study 189:  Wida Miller
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
