Reaching for the stars… we find our greatest self


Hello, once again i hope to surprise you today with a Penny Black image :-) i have had this cute stamps for like 2 years on my wish list. I don’t know there is something so very sweet and innocent about it. Yes, there are bunnies in the image but i have tried to use papers so it would not just be suitable for Easter.

Using this sentiment also helped a lot to make this card a lot longer usable than just for Easter.

This card is purchased from my very sweet friend Becky L. . I would like to use this opportunity to wave “hi” to Rosa A. too :-) Becky’s co-worker. I know both of them are reading my blog.  So nice who you meet so many kind people through this hobby.
Talk to you later Becky and Rosa :-) Thank you so much for everything!!

Stamps: Penny Black “ Reaching for the stars
Sentiment: Verve Visual
Papers: Pigon
Tools: Grand Spellbinders (Cricles / scallopes circles), Stampin up  (oval punches), Magnolia border die and flower die, Quick-kuts for corners
Coloring: Copic Sketch
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

PS. i do have the Grand Calibur to use with my Grand Spellbinders but honestly.. if you have the Big Shot – you should be fine for the beginning. You can use the first 3 rings of your circles perfectly fine with your “old” machine.

you might want to check out Sir Stampalots clearance sale.. i just spied some Nesties that i do not have and they are on sale :-) maybe you find something there that' is still missing in your own collection.
