Fresh Idea Friday

Hey there!!
Time for another Fresh Idea Friday. I got a few new goodies at CHA and I was anxious to try them out for today's post. I wasn't sure my idea was going to work but I'm pleased to say that it came out just like I had in mind...I love when that happens :)
I've never used cork on a card before but it's a hot item right now. I was super happy to get my hands on some and even happier that I could stamp on it. The frame from {Season of Joy} stamped really clear....then I just cut around the edges. I was going to use my coordinating labels dies but freehand was really quick. I love the whimsy touch the cork adds to the card.
Try stamping on some unexpected surfaces and see what you can come up with. It doesn't even have to be a new product...find something around the house and give it a try. I LOVE stamping on cardboard too!!!
That's it from me today :)
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the
Sneak peeks start on August 8th and you won't want to miss them.
Of course if you are already signed up as an {ippity} chick then you have seen the whole release...just another benefit of being a chick :)
Make sure you come back by tomorrow for Flatterday Saturday...we are revealing the NEW guest designer for this release and WOW is she fabulous!!
