Stamp Free Friday @ Paperworks Co!

For my Stamp Free Friday post this week at PaperWorks Co, I turned to my silhouette sd that has been sitting quietly on my desk for far too long. I went thru the different cuts in my library and then went shopping for some new ones. LOL Nothing like an excuse for shopping! I already had the banners and knew I wanted to make a birthday card. I found the additional shapes and merged two to create my frame in the software before cutting. Fun stuff! I love this Sugar paper pad by Basic Grey - it's got all my favorite yummy colors like pinks, reds and browns. Of course I distressed the edges, added some pearls and boom - done! I wanted to layer the banners and have the one on top elevated just a bit but you can see with the triangle it's a bit of an odd shape for your traditional pop dots so I turned to my trusty Liquid Scrap Dots by Helmar! This product is amazing. You can put as little or as much and make it custom to your shape for any dimension! I hope you are enjoying my stamp free friday posts! They are a bit of a challenge for me as I realize how much I love to stamp! Even reaching for my sentiment stamps is a no-no! LOL
Challenges I'm Playing:

Paper: Basic Grey Sugared 6x6 paper pad, Kraft by the paper company
Ink: Distress Inks in Barndoor and Tea Dye
Twine & Pearls from stash
Silhouette cuts: Banners, Lacey Circles & Sentiment by Samantha Walker
Adhesive: ATG; Helmar Craft Glue & Helmar Liquid Glue Dots
