Cute & Curly wishes

Tonight you'll see the first of 4 cards using the new Cute & Curly stamp set and the coordinating curly label punch as well as the Bella Rose designer series paper. I really love this punch and stamp set combo, so I decided to try to make 4 different cards using each image in this set and no other stamps. To make it even more challenging, I limited myself to one ink color-- chocolate chip.

While at first I thought this "challenge" would be really hard, it actually turned out to be pretty easy, especially after I decided to also incorporate the Bella Rose Designer paper into every card.

I was so pleased with the results I decided to offer these as a Stamp with Diane September Special. And here it is: Purchase the Curly Label Punch Bundle, the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper and a Chocolate Chip ink pad ($49.15 + shipping and tax,) and get all other materials you'll need to complete these 4 cards free! If you already have the chocolate chip ink pad and/or the Bella Rose designer paper, you can substitute items equivalent in value. However, you will need these items to complete your cards, so be sure you actually do have them before you substitute!

You'll notice that in addition to the stamps and designer paper, each card will feature other accessories like punches, felt fusion flowers, items from the pretties kit, ribbons and/or brads. Today's card is really loaded up in accessories, with no fewer than 2 different new ribbons (all new in the fall catalog!) plus flowers from the pretties kit and a rhinestone brad from the pretties kit. I really like the way it turned out!

And here is a photo of the other three cards. I'll upload them individually throughout this week so you can see the details, but I thought it was only fair to show you the other cards you'd be able to make if you take advantage of my special.

I also have to include a disclaimer. While none of these cards are particularly difficult to make, they do all require some precise cutting, so if you're not a fan of working with scissors, these cards may not be right for you. Sorry! I love cutting stuff out and sometimes I get carried away before I remember that not everyone likes this technique as much as I do.

These are lovely! Did you cut the mats by hand? I'm guessing that's what you mean by precise cutting
