Ok I'm getting the hang of this (I think)

I've been a busy bee lately.... here are some more cards I've made and wanted to share.

Stamp:   Hello, Doily #122847(c)   #128610 (w)

I heat embossed in white on Melon Mambo  on one card and Perfect Plum on the other.

Then I stamped the poppy from the Simply Sketched (hostess set ~ let me show you how to get it!!) and then colored it in with matching ink.

NEXT is the big thing!!  I punched it with my circle punch and also punched a circle of double sided tape ( Stampin' Up! sells sheets of this!!  Multipurpose Adhesive sheets 12 12x12 sheets $14.95  #120805)

Carefully pulled the back off the adhesive and laid it on the stamped image... then pulled the backing off the top.    Then I put very fine glitter on it Dazzling Diamonds #102023  and rubbed it in... keep rubbing and it takes all the sticky off and keeps the fine glitter on the image. .....TAAA DAAAA!!

Then I put it in the center of the doily and put my ribbon on! It's all ready to go in the mail!

It's really pretty "in person",  so to speak.   Hope you like it!!

Thank you for taking a few minutes to stop by and check out my blog!!   Have a Blessed Day!!
