Faux Mini Envelope card

A quick and Cute card using the What's Up punch.
I punched out 6 arrow shapes.  Trimmed the sides even.
Scored them at the point I wanted them to fold over.
 This created the fuax envelopes.  They are stuck down with glue dots.
Especially fun with the Confetti Celebration 2 sided designer paper.

Happy Birthday Card with Perfect Print Alphabet dies

Here's a cute floating window card.
The letters are attached to a piece of acetate that is attached
to the 2 parts of the front panel.So they appear to float.
Here a card using vellum in place of acetate.
 I accented both cards with retired Polka Dot designer paper.

Happy 4th!

I made a canvass banner to decorate my porch chair for the holiday.
While organizing I found some triangles cut from canvass.
Of course, I had to stop and make something with them!
Wonder why stuff never gets finished around here?  lol
Using the Work of art stamp set I stamped Real Red
and Midnight Muse designs on them.  Those 2 pads were well inked
so it worked.  A dry stamp pad would never do this on canvass.
 I decorated a clothespin by stamping the Celebrate word, from Something To Say,
with Black Stazon.  I then colored the sections with Markers. 
I tied a tin star shape (die cut done with Retired Stars die) to a button
 and then to the clothespin.  It's just clipped to the banner.
Here is a larger star.  I punched a hole in the center with a Crop A Dile
and tied the button with raffia that I then ran through the star.
Happy Holiday!
