Happy Anniversary

For today's card I first cut the Daisy Flower using my Big Shot Machine and Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die.  This large flower cut with a sheet of Designer Series Paper from the Love Letter pack looks great against the black background. You can't see it really well in the photo, but I also ran the black matte layer through my big shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The brad was selected from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit.  Victoria Crochet Trim was attached to the layer and I decided to put my sentiment right on the trim.  This crochet trim is so soft and ties really easy and gives your card a nice vintage look.  Just another great new product in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog.

To make today's card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla #101650, Basic Black #121045
Designer Series Paper:  Love Letter #117162
Stamp Set:  Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370
Ink:  Basic Black #101179
Embellishment:  Hodgepodge Hardware Silver #111325
Ribbon:  Victoria Crochet Trim #118481
Punch:  Word Window #119857
Accessories:  Big Shot Die Cut Machine #113439, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder #117335, Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die #114520

My Stamping Timesaver:  When I receive a pack of Designer Series Paper, I always write on the white cardboard sheet that comes with the paper, the names of the cardstock that coordinate with the paper.  Example - The Love Letter Designer Series Paper coordinates with Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, and Very Vanilla.  This way when I grab a sheet of the paper I already know what cardstock it coordinates with, making it easier for me to select layers for my project.  These colors are listed under the name of the Designer Series Paper in the Idea Book and Catalog.
