We spent a nice weekend at our cousins' new home. We returned last night. We had a blast! Today I've done the usual stuff...laundry, pay bills, catch up on email, etc. Then I decided to check my fave challenge blogs for some inspiration, and guess what? Rae has this snuggle bunny card as this week's Use It challenge.
Here are the details:
1. Try a new technique...
it can be an old technique,
but one you have not tried.
On my card I die cut the blue stars paper
and chocolate chip layers
by using the Sizzix/Stampin' Up! Top Note die.
Rotate the paper 90 degrees,
then die cut using the top note die again.
It creates a funky square :) (Thanks for teaching me, Leslie!!!)
I also used the SU! curly label punch
the same way for the sentiment:
punch once, rotate 90 degrees
and punch a second time.
2. Use a virgin stamp...
I purchased this MFT stamp set when it was brand new,
but I had not used it until now :)
3. Use papers you have never used before...
I fell in love with these DCWV Garden Party papers,
but they were too pretty to cut
(well, *almost* to pretty to cut!)
I hope you have time to play along. Remember, just Use It!
