OK! I guess everyone has heard of "Triple Stamping", but have you heard of "Triple dsp"? Well, me either. I just kinda made it up. But I'd LOVE to hear what you think.
- Runs with Scissors
- Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

I then cut a couple of pieces of SU Sycamore Street dsp and put on the front and inside of the card. Then I attached some lace for some cover. But here's the cool part. The balloons and inside sentiment. First, I punched the balloons out with a Martha Stewert Punch. I then wrapped linen thread around each one for the string. My friend Diane (Zechman) aka Cookie Stamper made the cutest Halloween step card a few years ago and made her bat appear to fly with the use of acetate. So, with that in my head, but no acetate in the stash, I cut up the packaging of one of my embossing folders. I cut little slits and taped them behind the balloons and on the card.

Funkie Junkie Boutique. Whenever I make an order, she sends the coolest things in a little envelope as a Thank You. After I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment I die cut it with SU Apothecary Accents, but it was too tall, so I trimmed it down.
