A Happy Thing

Another FREE Sale-a-bration Stamp Set is "A Happy Thing".  The lemon image is bold enough to stamp right onto your Designer Series Paper.  Fill it in using either your Blendabilities or Markers, create a layer with your Fringe Scissors, and add some coordinating ribbon and your card is done.  I got inspiration for my design from a similar card designed by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Debbie Currier. 
When I want to cut a layer using my Fringe Scissors I take my Sticky Strip and run a piece along the top of the paper.   This way when I cut with my scissors they stop at the Sticky Strip so I don't accidently cut my paper all the way through, and then I have my adhesive ready to go at the same time.
Whenever I am going to color in an image I use Black Memento Ink.  The ink dries quickly and doesn't smear when you use your markers or blendabilities.  In fact, this is the black I tend to use all the time anymore.  I never have to worry about smears and it goes on in a true black color.
