Don't forget that there's a chance to win the stamp set of the day by leaving a comment on the "In It to Win It" chat threads on Splitcoast Stampers. If you stop by Alma's (Miss Meowy, herself) you'll find the Design Teams samples and links to all of their blogs. Of course the Cat's Pajamas are on Facebook too. So there's lots to keep you busy till the release. Don't forget that on Tuesday, there'll be a blog hop featuring the new products. It'll be fun, so mark your calendar.
I've kept my card pretty much Clean and Simple because this stamp has so many sweet things going on it it and I don't want to take your eye away from it but at the same time I have to do a little something to keep it interesting. After I embossed the blue card stock I decided where I wanted the image to appear and used the "Framed Up" die to cut out that spot. I tied baker's twine around this layer and added a charm to it. Next I used dimensional tape to pop up the embossed layer and at that was when I decided I didn't want to add anything else to the card.
Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "Vintage Summer"
