Dollar Stamps

I was shopping at Target yesterday and found such cute things at the dollar spot! There were stamp sets, paper, punch out packs, punches and all kinds of embellishments. I ended up getting some paper, two punches and a couple stamp sets. Here's what I made with the one stamp set. Four stamps come in the set, but I only used two. The little flowers in the bottom right corner of the card were made with one of the punches I found. Both punches make such cute, little flowers. I added copper glitter glue to the centers of the stamped flowers for some sparkle and some interest. The card was looking a little plain to me. I used the layout from this GORGEOUS card that Beate sent me. Can you believe the birdies on this card? They are colored so perfectly that they look like you can actually feel their soft feathers. Beate, you just amaze me with the things you create. You rock! :) Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Target dollar spot; Ink- Bashful Blue, VersaMagic Wheat and Aegean Blue; Paper- DCWV dark brown and cream, white from Papertrey Ink, patterned paper from Target dollar spot; Accessories- $1 flower punch, Copper brads from Making Memories, copper glitter glue, Word Window punch, May Arts ribbon.

$ finds are fun. Love your blue and brown flower card, those little punches are great. The embossed background on your second card is fantastic.

I guess I'll have to hit the one spot this week...though I have really sworn off buying stamping and scrapping stuff after my last bill from TAC ($192 - EEEK!!!) - but it's discontinued time...AND I got to be hostess AND got 3 half-price items....

This time next week, I'll be in the 'Burgh! We'll have to schedule a Zoo date!
