OK, I have to admit I LOVE our new re-positionable stamps and clear blocks! I used our new set Whimsical Words (which I got FREE through Sale-A-Bration) along with our D sized clear block for this project. It was so GREAT to be able to see exactly where I was stamping! I can definitely see myself using clear mount stamps in the future - I'm hooked!
For the focal point I used various sized circle punches (1 3/4", 1 3/8", and 1"). I wadded up the larger circle and then smoothed it out before using it. I thought that little trick added texture without "bulking up" with another layer. The twine ties a short piece of Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon (don't throw out those 3" scraps!) to the top of a Pumpkin Pie corderoy button. That cute do-dad is mounted with a glue dot to my stack of circles. The background papers in our new Sweet Pea collection are wonderful! Don't you agree? The Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie combination really make this project happy and cheerful - just like birthdays are suppose to be! Add wide striped Pumpkin Pie ribbon and a couple buttons - Voila!
