helloToday I have a card for you using two new products from the Occasions catalog that I used for the first time on this card!  The first one is the Arrows Textured Impressions embossing folder (#132187).  At first I refrained from buying this folder but after seeing it used to make so many cute cards on the internet, I wanted to purchase it!

The second new item is my sentiment.  It comes from the set Simply Celebrate (see below) and it can be purchased in either wood (133221) or clear (133224).  I only wanted the “hello” part of the stamp, not the part that says, please take a seat.  In order to do this, I put blue painters tape – I had some sitting right there on my craft table but any tape will work – over the part I didn’t want on my card.  I inked the stamp up and pulled off the tape before stamping.   Have you tried this technique before?

Simply CelebrateMy Crisp Cantaloupe twine is from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, which is a Sale-a-bration freebie and one that you can get FREE with a $50 purchase!
