Coloring Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Snowhaven Paper Packet, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, A Happy Hello Stamp Set, Inks (Cranberry, Glacier, and Whisper), Heartstrings Complements, Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen, 3-D Foam Tape, Sparkles Clear Flourishes – Small, and Junebug Puffies.

One of the great things about acrylic stamps is the ability to “shape” them in new ways as you can see from my scalloped border.  I stretched out the stamp before attaching it to my acrylic block to create the elongated shape that I wanted.  I also cut the teardrop puffy shape to create the circles used in the center of some of the flowers.  This layout involved a lot of fussy-cutting but I don’t mind that.

Now “Hop” on over to Justine Hovey’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, A Happy Hello Stamp Set is only available through the end of February!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!
