Stamp Jam News and a card

Stampin' Addicts will be hosting a Stamp Jam March 31st.
There will be lots of stamp challenges and a Blog Bounce. 
Links will be posted on Stampin' Addicts during the Stamp Jam
to go check out project ideas for different themes.

I'll be participating with wedding ideas.
Come on by this next weekend and check it out.

Here's the other Make and Take card from the Milwaukee Regional event.
The polka dots petals on the flower are stamped with
the polka dot kite image then punched out with the Small Heart punch.
and layered on a Blossom Bouquet shape. 
The Bitty Button in the center of the heart flower 
has Calypso Coral Baker's Twine tied through it.

The leaf was stamped with the same kite image in Lucky Limeade,
then punched in the circle punch to get that shape.  See below.

*****
Leaf Tutorial
Insert cs with kite image into 13/8" Circle punch
until points of kite are at edge of circle.  Punch out. 
Use a Post It note as a long reach tool. 
 It allows you to easily get the circle back into the punch.
Slide the kite image into the punch until the points are again
lined up with the circle edge, then punch.

Voila!  A leaf.
Clever idea.
