I {heart} my Stamp-a-Majig!

I used it *a lot* on this card!! ...First, to make the repeating flourish background (which was partially embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder on the Cuttlebug (thanks Melinda!)), and then to change the shape/layout of the sentiment. Originally, it looks like this:So I had to stamp the whole image on the plastic imaging sheet, stamp the "whatever", clean the stamp, stamp "you are", clean the stamp, stamp "be a"...etc., etc... It took a while, but it fit on the square I wanted! *wink* The square and the scalloped square are both popped up on dimensionals.

I love this color combo together...Soft Sky, Sage Shadow, and Chocolate Chip. And even better, Martha Stewart Crafts' "Cloud" twill matches perfectly! *smiles*

To give the inside a little something, I scalloped the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel (using my corner rounder...can't wait for SU!'s scallop-edge punch!), then paper-pierced in the center of each scallop, and a line just above that. (You can see a bit of it peeking out in the top photo)

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

WOW! What a pretty card. And yeah, that's some serious Stamp-a-ma-jig'n (does that mean you were gettin' jiggy with it? LOL!). It totally was worth it though. The outcome is fabulous!

Hey! Now I have to comment on two cards... Slow down! I love this one... I love the colour combo, I love how you changed the sentiment to fit it, I love... all of it!
