This card uses the image from the My Friend stamp set. I like using this stamp in different ways - here I used it sideways for a fun effect. I also used the new 7/8" scallop punch and coordinating stamp set - A Round Array. This stamp set will be in the new 2013-14 catalog but is available now as a sneak peak. You can still get a discount on the bundle too - Learn more.
I used the Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions embossing folder for the background and some old ribbon left over from the Holiday Catalog. A larger scallop punch was used underneath for another layer - Stampin' Dimensionals pop out the sentiment.
Have you ever tried the Color Spritzer Tool? I bought this tool about 6 months ago and finally took it out. WOW, so easy and so much fun. You just put your Stampin' Up! marker in the little holder and squeeze a few times (I used a Crumb Cake marker). Your marker then splatters on the page. You can play around with how close to the paper you hold it to get different effects.
