…Oh Baby!

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I had every intention to post a mini couponing how-to today, but my inbox and comments were filled with so many questions that I need more time to get everything typed out.  So I will be back here tomorrow with the first part, but today I wanted to share another card that I made at our last Girls’ Weekend.


TAH-DAH!  Whatcha think? Smile I decided to use the “a la modes-Oh Baby!” set from My Favorite Things, stamped them in Black Ink, and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the focal panel with patterned papers from October Afternoon’s Modern Homemaker paper pad along with some New Leaf, Red, and White Cardstock. I pierced the edges of the large striped panel, then stitched the punched panel and red cardstock strip down the right-hand side.  The background on the focal panel was sponged using a Sponge Dauber and a Distress Ink Pad while the sentiment from the same set was stamped in Black Ink and cut out using the Word Window Punch.  I added a heart and flower by punching cardstock and patterned paper with the Heart Punch and Trio Flower Punch, then added a Silver Brad to the center of the flower.   I also added some Crystal Stickles to the bow on the giant teddy bear, and added three more Silver Brads down the upper right side of the card base.  After adding some Saddle-Stitched Ribbon and tons of Dimensionals the card was complete.  I’m so pleased with the way it turned out!

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with the beginning of my “How To Get Started With Coupons” class!  Until then…
