Pretty darn cute

No automatic alt text available.

Hello everyone thanks for following, I greatly appreciate each and everyone of you here, and love reading all your lovely comments, truly makes me smile.

Today I've completed one digi and one paper craft project and hope to have a new video via my you tube channel very soon. My videos may not always share a completed project but many techniques  that you can try.

Here with this card, I used an emboss folder, a die, and kaiser mist and a few little pretty stickers not going over the top, left a few white spots well not entirely on purpose but when I saw them I thought that works, so left them. This is on white Kaisercraft card stock.

The folder I used is this one below

I got myself a stamp press today, my order arrived I'm so excited and couldn't open the package fast enough. I love that I can stamp in place first time perfectly every time now, and if it's not the right shade first go I can re stamp over and over in the exact same place until I get it to where I want it. No more messy inky fingers,

I highly recommend a stamp press anyone who loves stamping as much as I do, there are many versions out there I got mine from craftonline with free delivery over $50, as well as the mist and the new ink color all craftonline.

I cannot stop using them. :-)
