Cody loves when the stamp orders arrive

Most of you know my cat Cody. He loves when the stamp orders arrive because there is brown packaging paper in the box. I pull it out and it is all bunched up and he loves to run on the paper to straighten it out, then he tries to hide under it. Little does he know that he is too big now and most of his body is hanging out of the paper. I just had to share Cody laying on the paper from the back order I had just received. He says "Thank you".

Easter Card

This is a great Easter card that we made at our Spring Celebration class last weekend. We had fun using the scallop trim border and scallop trim corner punches. I will list below the sizes to cut your card stock to use to make the corner and border punch evenly around the card stock.

Here is the recipe:
Abundant Hope and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Naturals White card stock
Shades of Spring designer paper
Jet Black (StazOn), Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip stamp pads
Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Trim Border and Modern Label punch
Certainly Celery satin ribbon
Aqua Painter

Here are the sizes to cut your card stock when using the corner and then border punch. Please punch all your corners before you start on the borders. You can cut the length one size and the width another size. Here are sizes for an even cut:
1 15/16", 2 3/8", 2 7/8", 3 1/4", 3 15/16", 4 1/4", and 4 3/4".

If you would like to cut rectangles, here are some great sizes:
3 15/16" x 4 3/4"
3 1/4" x 5 3/4"
2 7/8" x 1 15/16"

Thank you for visiting today. God Bless.
