No one else can fill your shoes!

I made this card with the Stamping Studio's monthly contest in mind...the challenge was to use their photo stamps or (if you didn't have any, which I don't, though they are lovely) to use a photo on a card and their stamps. I think this is the only set of their stamps that I have (it has a couple stamp images, a couple purse images, and a couple sayings - so cute). I haven't uploaded it to the contest gallery yet because I didn't want to be first...! Maybe I'll decide to change something on it the longer I look at know how that is? This picture cracks me up...I took it at my daughter's 4th bday party when she was trying on her new blingy shoes...she was not yet getting the hang of them at this point. Too cute. They did have flashy lights when I bought them...sooooo tacky, and yet perfect for a 4YO princess.

Anyway, stamps are by TSS. I used a couple folded ribbon scraps on the side, and sewed around the picture with my sewing machine (actually - ha - the thread broke about 1/3 down the right side so I had to redo that side by hand). Used my Giga scalloped circle punch and Coluzzle on the cirles. There's a little bling on the shoe, and there's glitter on the shoes (all of them) but I don't suppose you can see them...maybe if you click on the picture to enlarge it? The background paper is a freebie from (designed by Nancie Rowe Janitz)...from a set called Sanded Florals. Cute stuff.

So...what do you think, should I enter?


  1. Yup, most definitely, you should enter. I am not going to this month! ? about the Giga Scallop punch. does it come with the holes in the scallopy part or did you punch that separately.

  2. It's absolutely darling. Yes!! You should enter that contest! :-)

  3. I will, I will!

    Jacki, I put in the holes on the scalloped myself w/ an 1/8" punch.

  4. Of course you should enter the contest. You cant win if you dont enter!
