Post 2 of 2: Stamp IT!~3 Ways

The Stamp It! fun continues! :)


Today, the Go-to Gals are focusing on one of my FAVORITE sections of the magazine, Stamp It! 3-Ways.



Betsy, Jess & I are playing around with this Vintage Lace Borderline set from Technique Tuesday. Isn't it GORGEOUS?









Here is my take.



I used the different lace edges to make fun border across the bottom of the card. I also stamped up a Maya Road frame with the large scallop lace AND cut a heart out and stamped it with another image. LOTS of stamping yet simple as can be. How cool is that? :)



Be sure to HOP over to the Paper Crafts Connection for a CHANCE to win some goodies--STAMPS!. BUT don't forget to leave a comment HERE too AND at all the other Go-to Gals blogs for an even GREATER chance to WIN. Plus we are each giving away a Stamp It! magazine. :) Just be sure to leave your comment by midnight on Friday. I will announce the winner on Monday. :)
