Ciao, Baby!


One of my favorite “go-to” challenge sites is Freshly Made Sketches.   Last week, I was messing around with this sketch:

freshNow–mind you—this is just INSPIRATION so you take this and go with it.  Here is where I went:

Made by Betty Saccocia.  All products Stampin' Up!

Here is a close up of the fun stamp/punches :


Recognize the stamp sets?   The larger doily like image is from Delicate Doilies….a delightful set that can take on very different looks depending on the colors you use to stamp with and on.  The smaller image is from the  spring Occasions catalog and is called Ciao, Baby!  

ciao baby

You can see how perfectly this image matches with the new 7/8″ scallop punch.   You might think this is punch from the Holiday Catalog…..but you would be mistaken!   No judgement here—-I mistook that same thing!   This is a NEW punch from the spring Occasions catalog too–that goes so well with this set.

You don’t think the good people at Stampin’ Up! would give you a punch for this adorable scallop and then expect you to cut out that cute curly label, do you???   They are nice people and they would NEVER do that!   There is a new ADORABLE punch that matches this image perfectly….and it is FREE!   Check this SaleABration item!   Just act quickly!  You can get this punch for free during SaleABration (ends March 22nd) with a $50  order.

(After that, you will be able to purchase the punch by why not get it free??)

But I digress!  (Shocking…..I know!)

Let me know if I can get you anything!
