- Once again, the Oval Scallop Frame die comes to the rescue for the perfectly sized oval. Save the scallop frame for another project.
- With three tags to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect size for your project on the Matchbox die.
- The new stitched-poly ribbon (available in all the new in-colors) is charming. It's also very easy to work with when tying bows.
- I love the butterfly from the Great Friends stamp set. For this bit of class, I used white craft ink on vellum, then clear embossed it. Paper snips make cutting this cutie a breeze.
Technique alert! Did you spot the technique I snuck in? Make a real statement with your greetings by using two colors of ink. How? Stampin' Write markers, baby! Just apply the ink to the desired parts of the image with markers. Before stamping, breathe on the inked stamp to remoisten the ink before stamping onto your paper. I also used a Stamp-a-ma-jig positioner for perfect placement on the tag. It's a must-have tool!
