A Mixed Bunch of Birthday Wishes                                                                                 

This set has quickly become my favorite because the three different, large size flowers are all so different making it easy to use for everything!  Tips:  1) This stamp set has a coordinating punch which makes projects super easy and FAST! 2) To create the banner look on the edge of my tag I used the 1" square punch and inserted it, facing up, so that I could see where I was navigating and punched as shown. 3) Notice how I left space between the three layers/levels of this card? By layering in this manner it allows the base of your cardstock to show through adding another dimension to your project.  4) MY FAVORITE TIP OF ALL - pray that Hurricane Isaac doesn't eliminate our power for tomorrow so I can post another picture for you!
