Background Sponging Technique Thanks card
I love this new Seasonally Scattered stamp set from pg 43 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog! Have you seen it!? Flip to page 43 because I want to tell you something about it.... do you see how the LOVE and MERRY images look smaller?? Well, they are NOT smaller.. they are shown at 1/2 size... all 3 stamps in that set are the same size as the THANKS image!! I was a little confused at first when I saw the images and didn't read the fine print, so I didn't want you to be confused too! :)
If you don't have a catalog, you can view it and purchase it online here. I'll list all the other supplies at the bottom of this post. Need a catalog? leave me a comment and let me know so I can get one to you!
So this was the Thank You card I used for some customer orders last month.. I know that almost everyone who received one emailed me to say they liked it.. that made my heart so happy! I was inspired by a swap card I received from Cindy Henry in our Luv 2 Stamp Group!

Stampin' Tip for little punched pieces from Patty:
and then I heard the Ice Cream man come down the street and it was all over... had to go out and get a treat! I guess the It's-It is a (San Francisco) Bay Area treat... it's two oatmeal cookies with ice cream in the middle, then dipped in chocolate.. yummmmm
What's YOUR favorite treat after a long day of stamping?
