Triple the fun!

Hey stampers!  I have a super cute card (I always say that, don't I?) AND a video!  I recently got the new triple layer punches from the Summer Mini (you can view the catalog over on the right in my sidebar) and they are so fun!  BUT they can be a bit intimidating/tricky....I was able to watch a video on our demo site so I thought I'd make my own to pass on the tips and tricks to you!  I was a bit chatty the day I made it (when am I not?) so bear with me as I was kind of all over the place...I must have had some caffeine that day:-)  And I didn't have a card (that I liked anyway) done when I made the video but I made one last night....so watch the video and then scroll down for the card!


Once you follow the tips here they are so easy and fun to use!  But my desk is covered in paper poo:-)  So here's the card I came up with!

 Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Tiny tags
Paper:  Whisper white, so saffron, concord crush, perfect plum and PP DSP, bashful blue
Ink:  concord crush
Accessories:  Triple layer punches - blossom and doily, bashful blue taffeta ribbon (retired), jewelry tag punch, basic pearls & rhinestones, crochet thread, circle punches

I think my favorite part is the glimmer brad!  I do hope those come back in the new catalog! I love those things!  And speaking of!  I get to see the sneak peeks and new catalog in less than a month now!  Ah the small joys of being a demo:-)  We will find out the retirement list on June 1 as well....I'm sure I'll cry for a few sets that retire....and speaking of retiring my MOM is retiring after over 35 years from the city TOMORROW!  I still don't have a card for her or her gift made....I better get to work on that!  Happy stamping!
