You and Me and The Cutting Cafe'!!

Post is edited to add this: Here's a REALLY quick card I put together with the awesome background stamps available as a freebie over at The Cutting Cafe' for this weekend only! Get them before midnight on Monday night! The details are in my post below. Image is from Dustin Pike. Seniment is from another file from The Cutting Cafe' called Rain Rain Go Away.

Happy weekend!! YAY!! Ok, have you seen the new scalloped set over at The Cutting Cafe'???? Oh my gosh, I am going to be using this set a LOT!! This scalloped card is just one scallop edge that comes in this set of 15!! I love this card, but it was designed for an A2 size card and I wanted bigger. So I just made it bigger and cut it with my Pazzle. Worked beautifully!! Or you can just print it onto your paper you want to use and you can cut it out yourself with the pdf file. So don't feel limited if it's not the size you want. Just change it! Try to keep the same proportions though, or the scallops will get distorted. In other words, increase or decrease the sides equally if all sides are scalloped. I also used the All About Valentine's Day set for the You and Me that is printed inside the heart.


Here's the card recipe:

images and shaped card: The Cutting Cafe'

paper - Bazzill cardstock

tools: Martha Stewart border punch; heart shaped Nestabilities; Bow Easy, Copic air brush system; Martha Stewart frond punch

Misc: silk ribbon; charm from Stamp and Create; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, half backed pearls, dimensional tape

Ok, now for the fun stuff! Regina at The Cutting Cafe' is offering up some free background stamps for the entire weekend as a way to say thank you to her customers. So hurry over and grab them up, and then she's also running a contest for what you can make with one or both of the freebies. Do your best cause this is a judged contest, not a random draw! Can't wait to see what you do with them! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
