Dynamic Duos #11 ~ Just for You!


Hello and a happy Saturday to you all! I hope you have something fun planned for this summer weekend. If you decide to get a little crafty why not join in the fun with us Dynamic Duos!!??!! We have the pretty little soft and subtle combination of Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze this week.


I must say this sweet little lady (by Stamping Bella) in her billowy party dress is one of my favorite stamps. I've done her in so many colors and she looks good any way you fancy her up! My favorite touch is to add glitter or Stickles to the ruffly under layer of her dress! She's stamped, colored and fussy cut. I think a couple of those wee flower stems and leaves ended up on the cutting room floor....a bit too teeny weeny to survive! She's added to my Baja Breeze card base with foam tape. My sentiment from Endless Creations is on PTI: limitless layers die cuts and the little fluttery butterflies are a stick stamp from Stamps by Judith. Don'tcha just love the cut look of these buttons! But you know what...I can't remember where I got them ~ HA!!! I think they came in a package I picked up at Archivers.

Hey here's a little FYI $$$ tip for you. Buy your foam mounting tape at a big box hardware store rather than your craft store. I buy mine at our local Lowes in a BIG roll for about $8.00 and it lasts forever. The craft store rolls are so much smaller. I use foam pop dots sometimes but you can cut the foam tape to any size you need. Just seems more economical to me.

Ok I'm off to my niece's bridal shower this afternoon. Remember you have until 12:00 noon on Thursday to link up with us at Dynamic Duos. I hope to see your card in our gallery! And hey while you looking around in the blogosphere why not hop on over to visit my fellow Dynamos. They're all linked on my sidebar and just a click away ~Lisa

So sweet, Lisa!! You did a super job fussy cutting this little lady. You nailed those pretty colors, and I just LOVE your diagonal design here. So effective!! (I think outside of the box when it comes to buying my foam tape, too. You are right--so much cheaper elsewhere!! I'm right there with ya!!)
