Simple September Punches Preview

Happy Saturday!  I have been trying every night to write a new post, but after working each night until 10:30 PM or later, my brain is dead.  Thank goodness for weekends!  Debbie is going to try something new today – embossed antique brads.  I have embossed brads for years by heating them with the heat gun, dipping the hot brad in embossing powder, and then heating the brad again until the excess powder drips off.  With my method, I have had issues with the color embossing evenly.  Deb is going to try a simple technique she read about, and we will share the results in a few days.  I think the thought of Chantilly lace ribbon, a pretty antique brad and a vintage stamp just sounds yummy!  Well, on to Simple September Punches…Happy Birthday Punch

This first card is simply a WOW – yet is so simple and elegant!  Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White cs with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, a touch of 1/8” black taffeta ribbon and 4” Melon Mambo scallop ribbon – and you are DONE!  The stamp set “Happiest Birthday Wishes” not only provides a simple birthday tag image, but will also give you a choice of messages to stamp inside the card!  Pretty cool! 





Check back tomorrow for the next Simple September Punch preview.  We will again use an image from “Happiest Birthday Wishes” and our color scheme will be Daffodil Delight and Grape Crush.

Mark your calendars now for Friday Sept 9th from 4 – 9 PM and Saturday Sept 10th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  Come anytime during those hours and bring only yourself.  We will have all the card stock cut and scored, along with the adhesive, scissors and anything else you might need.  The cost is $10.  As always, we will have cold water and soda in the frig and on Saturday morning, a pot of fresh coffee.  If you can, let me know you are coming to insure we have enough paper cut.  But if you decide at the last second to come, no problem, there is always an extra packet or two. 

Please let me know if you did not receive your Holiday Mini so that I can call Stampin’ Up and have it resent.  We will have extras available at the Stamp Camp also. 

Happy Stamping and talk to you tomorrow!  Rosemary
