Playing with my friend Jen

Today my great friend Jen joined me at my house (with a quick run to our not-so-local stamp store first) to work together on USING our latest Simon Say's Stamp! kit.  We did pretty well considering we spent an hour at that shop and then got down to work.  We each made 4 cards together...Jen's are fabulous as always...and then I made one more tonight.  We are on a roll!  At first this kit didn't grab me but now I think quite differently.  This stamp set is just adorable with the two dresses, clothes line and hanger.  Sentiments are fun too.

I finally had the perfect use for those Tim Holtz hangers!

 Clothes line and sentiment were stamped with Distress Paint in Broken China.

This flower was stamped on assorted patterned paper from the SSS February kit in black ink.  The "clothes line" was used for the stem and then I added the leaves and sentiment all in Memento Tuxedo Black.

These dresses were stamped like the flowers above on the same patterned paper.  The middle dress was pieced together with two patterns.  Sweet tiny pink buttons added at the top of the stamped hangers.  Banner below stamped with the sentiment "wanna hang out?" and stamped with a tiny flower in Picket Fence Distress Paint.

Finally, a very different card from the same kit!  Patterned paper cut to fit the card base with the clothes line stamped above and below.  Sweet little dangling hearts stamped from the line and a panel stamped for the sentiment with more tiny pink buttons below that.

Thanks for looking:)
