DUCKS AND DIAPERS...

The minute I saw the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, I visualized a diaper!  Can you?

HERE'S HOW:  Die-Cut the "diaper" then fold the little point down, and fold the sides over the front as shown.  And you have a cute little diaper!!  Tiny little safety pins would look adorable.  And think how it would work as a baby shower party favor, filled with some confetti and a tiny piece of chocolate!  Oops!  Do you think people would think the chocolate was something else??  <giggle>

DAY 12 OF 12...

WORD PLAY STAMP SET - Day 12 of 12

For the past couple of weeks, I've shared cards received from new friends all over the USA and Canada.  I intended to show you cards made with the Worth the Wait Stamp today, but since none were exchanged, I'm taking a little detour and posting the 12 cards I made, (1 each of all 12 stamps in the set)...

On Monday we'll celebrate TIDINGS OF COMFORT & JOY with seven Christmas cards.  On Tuesday, what else? ...SO WORTH THE WAIT

During the past two weeks as I've shared cards made by others, I've been very busy in my stamping studio making brand new cards with brand new things from the brand new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  I've also been making (secret) things from the soon-to-be-released Holiday Mini Catalog!! 

THANKS A MILLION, STAMPIN' UP!

Mandy's card is a perfect example of a HYBRID.  She used My Digital Studio for the graphics and enhanced it with a dimensional piece, a little ribbon and a brad.  She also tore some edges which gave it a worn look.  Thanks, Mandy.
