A day at the Fair

As well as Magnolia stamps, I am a HUGE fan of the Make It Crafty digital backgrounds. They work so well with all my rubber stamps and you can find a great background for almost every Magnolia or Gilli stamp. How about Chef Gilli or Chef Marci and the wonderful Kitchen Isle background? Zoe's digital backgrounds can be sized to work with any rubber stamp you have, are easy to store and can be combined with any other digital images. I cut the circle and frame with my Spellbinder Classic Circles using the Grand Calibur. This card was scored using my Scor-Pal.

My pennants were cut on my Cricut using Make the Cut and the library of MTC files that are accessible through the software. I could not find a pennant on any of the Cricut cartridges I currently have. I stamped the pennants with a SMP rubber background stamp and drew the lines with Crystal Stickles.

I also added Crystal Stickles to the Stamping flowers (3 were used on this card) after I used my Copic Airbrush system to airbrush B93, B95 and B97 on them. The ribbon was cut and placed under the flowers. I believe I purchased it at Joann Fabrics.
