Take a peek at this FUN, exclusive Stamp set! J

Look at all the words, shapes, and brackets.  Even though this seemed like a "scrapbooker's" stamp set to me...I wanted to try and create a card....and so I did.  

Here is the card I created....

I wanted to use the striped banner in a fun way, so I used them as an accent at the top of the card.  

After I stamped the glacier cardstock with triangles & squares - I decided to run it through the Cuttlebug machine to add some more dimension.  

Do you see the tiny embossed heart??? What FUN!! 

I did decide to incorporate another NEW stamp set that became available on April 1st.  It is becoming a fast favorite & is called Finding the Words.  

I'm excited to continue to use this stamp set for upcoming creations! J

Here is the list of products I used on this card in case you'd like to create one of your own!  Happy Crafting! J
