1. Align your paper on your Position-it, secure your paper with sticky notes or tape.
2. Stamp your image using the grid to align your image perfectly, by just sliding the paper horizontally.
3. Re stamp your images perfectly to make a darker look.

We are celebrating two years at 2S4Y these past couple of weeks with two sponsors! Lawn Fawn & Scor-it, featuring Cathie Allen's Position-it. I have made this card with tutorial using Lawn Fawn stamps and the very cool Position-it.

G.C.D's product is such a pleasure to work with. The colors and style of each one of their products make your projects pop! This months G.C.D. facebook design team challenge was to use gradient color. I put together a gradient pink trio of a bridal shower invite, mini treat box, and thank you all using the G.C.D. Homespun Chic Collection. Included is a template and tutorial on how to make your own mini treat box.

This months G.C.D. facebook design team challenge was to use gradient color. I enjoyed this technique, it made me think outside the box and create out of my comfort zone. For this card I dabbled in the fabulous collections, Artsy Urban and a little Homespun Chic, from G.C.D. Studios the two compliment each other beautifully to make a "Lovely" card.

Thanks for all your sweet comments!
