Oopsie!! I'm Late!!
Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry that I'm late with my post today! Can't even explain to you what I was thinking except to tell you that every day is Saturday to me. LOL All the days just sort of blur together into one day. So, hopefully you all will forgive me for being late.
Today's card features another My Cute Stamp set called Sweet Chocolate. Every single image in this clear set is just sooo fun and creative. Holly Jones, the creator of these stamps, must be a very clever girl as I love every single one of her stamp sets. Julie at ABC Toys & Crafts carries a huge selection of My Cute Stamps sets - they all can be found HERE. I used the three different chocolate images, as well as the sentiment. But the sentiment didn't fit into the square, so I cut it in the middle and stamped the two different pieces separately. That's what I love about clear stamps!!
I also used the new Loopy Border and Corner punches. These punches are soooo cool - the sides now fold up for better storage, and they punch really well - even through heavy cardstock!! It appears that ABC Toys & Crafts is temporarily out of stock of these two punches, but I believe that more will be arriving very soon. You can find all the other new Martha Stewart punches HERE.
I also used a few other of my favorite Martha Stewart products. These are two things that no craft room should be without. I used the Glitter Set and the Glue Pad. Okay, first of all, can I just tell you that I have tried every kind of glue pad out there in craft land. The one and ONLY glue pad that actually gave me a clearly stamped impression (not oozing with glue and very detailed) as well as a glue that actually retained glitter and fun flock, without loosing any of that bling, is the Martha Stewart Glue Pad. This pad works time after time. It comes with an extra bottle of glue to refresh the pad, but I haven't had to refresh my pad yet!! Then the Glitter Set has some of the most amazing glitter colors known to man - 18 different colors!! Seriously, these colors are so beautiful and vibrant. If you look closely, I used a delicious coppery brown glitter on the chocolates. Gorgeous!!
One last piece of business, and then I'll be done for the day:
