More Retro Fun...

I have to say that I LOVE the Retro Style Watch (on pages 10-11 in the CATALOG) from Stampin' Up! Seriously....all the pieces in this collection just make me happy! Too cute. Yesterday I posted the Pop-Up Card I made, and today...here are just a few basic cards I made with the items.
I love doing the banner thing. I think it's too much fun. You just cut a piece of cardstock to fit your sentiment. Stamp your sentiment, leaving extra space on whatever side you want your banner points to be. Then put your banner in a square punch...that is big enough for your banner...at a diagonal. Center it, and then just punch...instant banner. I colored the "good" from "good friend" in with my VersaMarker again. Hard to see...I know...but in real life it gives a subtle difference in color that makes it pop.

This card started out with the focal point of the card. I made that panel for another project that didn't work like I wanted it to. So I made it into a card. Don't you just LOVE the corduroy buttons?! So scrumptious and SO HAPPY they are in the catalog!!! :) Enjoy these cards!

Hi Ashley! I was looking through my swaps and found one from you and it had this site address on it. (Don't know if you remember me from convention...baby Avrie) Thought I would come check it out...super duper cutie poop stuff! Now I have to have the bird stamp...didn't before I came here. Anyway..just wanted to say Hi and love your stuff!
