My new stamp set...

I got a new stamp set!!! Yep...I got Green Thumb from Papertrey!!! Woohoo! I am loving it! I also got a new to me punch from SU! I had to put it to use right away!

I cased this card. Loved the design.

Then I thought I'd post how I did the little sentiment since I don't have a word window punch (yet). Here's my mini tutorial:

I punched the sentiment out using a flower.

Then I trimmed it.

And trimmed it more...

Then I punched out a background paper with a larger flower punch.

And trimmed it too!

I glued the sentiment onto the background piece.

Then I used the large punch again as my trimmer.

And I ended up with it exactly the way I wanted it.

This card is totally cute Denise!! As a demo, I should probably not say this, but you seemed to have mastered the punch without owning it - LOL!
