A New Favorite ...

I think that "Field Flowers" is fast-becoming one of my new favorite sets. I've always been a little bit of a softie for two-step stamps, anyway. But this one is a keeper!!

This fun fold is called a Center Step Card. I've been seeing them around a lot lately (saw MANYMANYMANY at Convention!), but I hadn't tried one 'til I made this. Here is a link to a tutorial on SCS if you wanna check it out:

Center Step Instructions

Smiley from millan.netI need to rob a bank ... or inherit some money from a long-lost relative ... or win the lottery OR Publisher's Clearing House (I guess it would help if I enter EITHER!) ... there are SERIOUSLY a lot of fun goodies I want/need in the new SU catalog! And the Holiday Mini that is coming out soon?? Fuhgeddaboudit!! I thought about trying to sell one of my kids ... but then dismissed the idea 'cause I think that might be a hard sell ... think I am just gonna hafta go through my stash of stamps and find some more to add to my "for sale" list ... that might cover what I have ALREADY bought!! Sheesh!

Stamps: Field Flowers, Petite Pairs
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, In Color Patterned DSP
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral
Accessories: 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Rich Razzleberry Buttons, Dimensionals

NOOO!!! Don't do this to me!! I love flower images and told myself I didn't need this set, but this is TOO GORGEOUS!! LOL...I might have to consider selling a kid, too!

Love the card, you inspired me to go and create 20 card bases, now I just have to dress them up. But I have a question, what size envelope are you using?

OK, Love the card...and agree with you on what more to sell to get what I want out of the new catalogues!!! Can't do one of the "kids" (they're 38 now, and too old to sell)...Hmmmmmmm-

Hey, Lisa ... it's just a standard A2 size when it's finished (4.25" x 5.5"), so I use regular ol' A2 envelopes ... :)
