Hey All!

Amy here from Paisley's Playhouse!!

"Who's the boss?" Not me...that is why I made a card for my for my super awesome boss. I definitely hit the jackpot there. I have had a few not so great ones but most of the time I have been lucky and have had good ones. I am going to go out on a limb and say it is because I am a super duper employee.

Anyway I am the boss of my craft which means I do what I want when I am paper crafting. I can color outside the line and break the "rules" if I want to.

Can you spot what I did on this card?

If you noticed that my boarder stamp is the same wreath I have been using then yes you guess it! I cut my stamp up. Say what?

I was very careful and trimmed between the image and then I made it a boarder.

I will admit I was a little nervous in all my many stamping years I have never cut a stamp before but I really wanted to use this as a boarder so I just did it.

Love it.

I also did something else a little different on this card. I had an emergency with my olive cardstock as in I ran out! Wha wha what? How could this be it is one of my favorite colors anyway and what with it being fall and all...what is a girl to do?

Make my own

I think it turned out pretty good. I also like to do this if I just need a little big of color or a brushed look.
