I don’t know about you, but I see some stamps or other products and say to myself that I don’t think I would use that.  The stamp set I am showcasing today is one of those.  When I first saw it in the Mini Catalog, I thought it was adorable, but didn’t think I would really use it.  And I can imagine that you know where this is going!!!!   Yes, after seeing everyone’s creation, I had to have this set.

I have already used this set twice and just received it on Monday!  The other project is for a class I am having on Saturday. So I cannot share it until next week.  The stamped images are exactly what I envisioned for this card.  But the layout gave me fits!

I tend to stamp images and then cut them down to a smaller size.  I could not decide how to best cut this one.  And I thought it was too large with too much white space to leave it square.  In comes the handy dandy Paper Trimmer.

I played around with how to cut the angles.  And was afraid I was going to totally mess up my work.  All I can say is Go For It!!!  After I got the first cut completed, I was happy.  It is different and I am good with that.

Oops, I never told you what colors I used!  The background is Poppy Parade and the DSP is Granny Apple Green.  I wanted this one to POP!  Other than the funky cutting, I added a some extras to create the picture I wanted.  The Granny Apple wood grain DSP is from the Brights 6X6 Designer Series Paper.  I thought it went perfectly with the tree.  I also added the stars from the All The Trimmings embellishments.  There was already a star on top of the lady’s hat.  I just covered it with one of the embellishments.  And since I didn’t want the sentiment to feel neglected, I added a star on each end of that layer.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you like my angles on today’s card.  Yesterday was the Pals Blog Hop and it was FULL of Awesome Projects.  If you didn’t see it, you can go back there from HERE.
