{2.21.2011} the FINAL February twist

Ready for the FINAL twist!!!

Yip, we are already at the 4th and FINAL week for February’s Hippity Hop Twist Challenge (IHHTC2).  Check out the Ippity blog for more deets.


Let’s use some ribbon.

Trying something new again.

I used the “post” stamp from Cherish Your Dreams to create my own background on kraft card stock.  I like it and definitely will be doing this again.  For some reason the idea of creating my own background scared me.  But with help of my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig, we got it done.

I layered a few more stamps from this set over the Thoughts From the Past postcard stamp.  The little flowers were colored with a blender pen and some Unity ink.

Plus, I have been using my decorative scissors A LOT lately.

I went digging into the back of the closet to find them.  And to think… I actually considered getting rid if these!  Guess they are like bell bottoms… if you wait long enough it will come back in style.  I used my deckle scissors on the postcard and my postage stamp scissors around the flower stamp.

The AMAZINGLY talented Lisa H. is next!!!!

  1. LOOOOOOOOOVE it! i love that edging with the scissors! ACK–you almost threw them out! Good thing you didn’t! LOVE the distressed feel–and the way you created your own background–BEAUTIFULLY done;)

  2. Oh, Lisa, I LOVE this!! Wow, everything about it is fantastic. I love the background you created (can’t believe it’s just one stamp) and I wish I had those decorative scissors!
