I used the Serene Silhouettes stamp set and my Stampin’ Up! Clear-Mount Blocks to create a cool background. The technique is called Ink Block Stamping and I’ve created a quick photo tutorial showing you how I created the focal image. You can see the tutorial here.

Banner Banter Fry Box – Stampin’ Up!
I had some fun with the Fry Box Bigz L Die from Stampin’ Up! today. I decided that I wanted to see if I could make a box out of one of the bags Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags and I found out that one bag is the perfect size to cut two Fry Boxes!

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players Summer Holiday and the Dynamic Duos #55 Raspberry Ripple & Wisteria Wonder Challenges.

I thought it was about time for some blog candy again…so lets chat about what we’d like to see in the new catalog!
If you’d like to be entered to win my blog candy package, just leave a comment on this post before Saturday evening (4/20/13) telling me either what item you hope to see in the new catalog or what item you’ll be sad to see retire (or both!) and your name will go in the hat to win! I’ll announce the winner on my blog post Sunday morning. Anyone can leave a comment, but I’m only able to give the blog candy to someone with a US address, sorry about that.
I’m hoping for new stamp sets that go with the existing Framelits Dies and some new Framelits too! I think that I’m most sad about Baja Breeze leaving, it’s one of my favorite colors. Don’t forget that Stampin’ Up’s retiring list will be posted on Wednesday, April 24 (and I’ll post it on my blog for you too) so you’ll have a few weeks to grab your favorite things before they’re gone.
