Cheers!



Hello Again!

Are any of you familiar with the television show "Heroes"? The moment I saw this stamp, I thought of the cheerleader from the show Heroes. Sometimes I tickle myself even... but it's the "kooky" things around me that actually inspire me. All chit chat aside, I would like to introduce you to another InStyle Stamps image......... Tiffany!



Although I love the finished results, I ran into a serious snag with the pom poms! I wanted to do something to bring them out! I tried to layer them but that didn't work for me either. After pondering the issue of what to do with my pom poms, I thought about the ribbon flower that I made a few months ago. The more I thought about the ribbon flowers, the more I liked it and set off making a few trial ribbon flowers. To adhere the ribbon flowers, I used my 3/8 size punch and punched circles. The ribbon flowers are mounted with clear dots from Memory Book.
I seriously love this product!!!

Awesome card. Those pom poms worked out beautifully. Very, very unique idea and such a wonderful one too. I don't watch Heros. Tried to start watching last season but felt I missed out by not watching it from the beginning.
