Stampin' Up! Canada Sweet Pea

It’s amazing how the same card layout can create two very different looking cards. How can you ever run out of stamping ideas when a few changes makes a card completely new again?  Here’s a challenge for you today – take a favourite card and recreate it with new products. 

I have been stamping for almost 12 years now and it is the first hobby I have ever stayed with. But wait, not only do I still stamp but this fun, creative outlet actually pays the mortgage.  I still can’t believe it. What keeps me stamping? There is always something new to learn.

So, what did I learn today? That the scalloped circle from the Stampin’ Up! Pennant die fits perfectly behind the 1-3/4" circle punch. I have owned this die for almost two years and did not realize the two pieces worked together until today. Isn’t stamping exciting?

I took my new discovery and made two cards – one is fun and one is more elegant. What’s your favourite?
