*Stamping with 2Peas*

it's time!
the Stamping A to Z is up at 2Peas 
all this week, startign with the letter "A"

I was THRILLED to be a guest for this event!
Today is letter "A" & here's a card  I made with "American Crafts":

I used the CUTE new camera stamp from Amy Tangerine 's new line & a "sweet" word from the new Daydreams line, as well as American Crafts ink,
stamp markers, Thickers (I always think Thickers need to be idea why, ha!),
along with ribbon, festive Amy Tangerine papers
& gorgeous textured American Crafts Cardstock.

I also used one of my favorite new border punches by EK Success.

Here's simple directions on how to complete this card:
-trim cardstock 5" x 11" - fold & score.
-using border punch, punch along edge of cardstock.
-using corner rounder, round the bottom left side of card base.
-using a different colored cardstock with the border punch, punch along edge of cardstock.
-cut that strip in half and set aside.
-trim patterned paper 4 1/8" x 5" & round the bottom left side.
-tie ribbon around top of patterned paper, then adhere to card base.
-trim fabric paper to 2 2/8" x 5" & adhere to center of patterned paper
-add different colored punched border to each side, tucking in with adhesive.
-stamp 3 camera's on patterned paper & cut them out
-using a colorful stamp marker, color in spots on the camera (I did the ♥ & added dots)
-using another strip of light colored cardstock - stamp "sweet" using a bright ink
-cut that strip into a banner & cut 2 more strips into smaller banners.
-working from bottom to top - add the first "sweet" banner to the right of the bottom camera - on the left of your car
  using 3D adhesive.
-add 2nd camera with banner to the right side of card using 3D adhesive
-add 3rd camera with banner to the left to left side of card, also using 3D adhesive
-now working our way back down - spell out "oh" with letters to right of first camera
-spell out "hey" with letters to left of 2nd camera
-spell out "girl" just UNDER stamped 'sweet' image.
-top it off with a colorful flair button to center of bow.
