Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 4

The stamp set has images you can stamp inside the open areas, but I decided to...

Wreath Builder Stencils

Hi, crafty friends. I’m honored to be part of this blog hop celebrating Simon Says Stamp’s Friends Release. I have three cards to share today that feature THIS new die set… I thought it would be fun to share three different ways to use the same die set…  1.
