You're the BEST FRIEND DOstamping Tips:

  • I've had this fun little award sitting on my desk for awhile now.  It makes me smile every time I look at it.  I've gonna have to send it off to someone else to make them smile too!
  • It uses one of the Mint Macaron stitched rectangle pieces from the kit.  Just fold in half and decorate as desired.
  • Makes for a special award!

Celebration Daisy DOstamping Tips:

  • The World's Greatest kit lends itself to more of a masculine feel.  So I wanted to make something a little more feminine.
  • Daisy Punch to the rescue!  I had to get a little creative with the flower center.  I used the center of the letter "O" from the Playful Alphabet Dies (measures 7/16").
  • For the front plaid panel:  Cut a card base in half, then in half again (2-3/4" x 4-1/4").  You can make 4 cards from just one card base!
  • Bumblebee panel measures 3-1/4" x 4-1/4"
  • The white banner is 3/4" x 3-3/4" - then punch with the new Banners Pick a Punch (love it!)

Celebration Daisy (take 2) DOstamping Tips:

  • Same card as above, just a few differences.  Couldn't decide which one I liked the best.
  • Bumblebee panel measures 3" x 3".  Pacific Point strip measures 1" x 4"
  • Which one do you like the best?
